The Lyrics

I won't be rushed, there's plenty of time
I'll still be here in two thousand an' nine
Why should I hurry? Why should I worry?
I'm War President, Deciden' best for the c'untry

I'm doin' God's work, spreadin' Freedom all round
A better Decider just could not be found
I unnerstan' war's tough, that's why I dodged 'Nam'
An' was wounded by a dentist's drill in Alabam'

I reject all ideas that would lead to defeat
People gotta unnerstan' victory must be complete
At the 'propriate time, I'll say where we're headed
I'll present My New Way Foreward with Iraqis Embedded

I'm weighin' my options for Iraq
We're goin' forward, we're not goin' back
I got a better plan, a bran' new scam
I think I just might nuke Iran
