The Lyrics

the first in what is to become a long line of parodies of U2 songs.... This one happens to be political and addresses Bush
We will borrow....

You were on the wrong side when you said
"Iraq should be free"
Budgets left upon the shelf
You were blind; you could not see

Their oil was part of your plan
Just like your father with Iran
If we stopped to think, we'd start to cry
"Oh, why?"

If you spend this way, spend this way,
We're in dismay, in dismay
We will borrow
If we fight this way, fight this way,
They're led astray, led astray
Peace is hollow
We will borrow

It was from the outside
That we pulled the regime down
They were looking for a window
Order lost, strife was found


Your lies end in circles
No weapons when we went in there
Your lies, their lives
Your lies, their lives

Thanks, Kristof... The pacing was quite difficult given Bono's strange meters in this song, but I think I managed to make the chorus work.... Next up, Two Hearts Beat as One

Thoughtful job. "Just like your father", yes, but dumber and more violent.
