The Lyrics

They slogged up to the Hill;
Appears each is a shill
For swell cell o' fellas who engineered this fiasco.
Dave'll try to fox ya. . .
Mated with Ry' Crock o'. . .
Then banners unfurl, and the protesters chant: "We ask, 'no!'"

Used war: Dave and Ryan got one to sell,
Used war. . .try to give it a new-war smell.
Their pitch, balanced and fair?
Listener, beware.

These guys are full of wiles;
They've misstated the miles
And these are just a few of the many numbers they've cooked.
They're hawin' and hemmin'.
This junker's a lemon;
Anyone who bought this old clunker has really been rooked.

Used war: Dave and Ryan got one to sell,
Used war, but it ain't got that new-war smell.
They say, there's progress there--
Listener, beware.

Both ape sincerity,
But when they say, "Trust me,"
I find that I just can't help feelin' a trifle wary.
Although I'm sure they're bright,
It appears that this fight
Has been managed up to now by Moe, Curly, and Larry.

Used war: Dave and Ryan got one to sell,
Used-war pitch is like a game played with shell.
They fib. How can you tell?
Lips move when they yell.

Used war: Dave and Ryan got one to sell,
Used war: "We've rebuilt the engine. . .runs well."
Most folks say it ain't swell.
Folks can go to hell.

Brilliant concept and 'prosecution'! Too bad it won't be playing on Fox News anytime soon!

Thanks, AFW, TJC, Alvin. BTW, if you haven't seen the film, it's a satiric masterpiece, IMO.
