The Lyrics

As sung by a journalist George W. Bush couldn't control. Damn liberal Iraqi media!
Well, it's one for the money.
Two for the show.
You messed up my country
so go, Bush, go!

And don't you
know that I threw frayed shoes.
We say you do everything
and that's why I done threw frayed shoes.

My country's bombed around.
You stepped our our face.
Slammed our people all over the place.
You do anything that you wanna do.
And that's why Dubya, I threw them frayed shoes!

And don't you
know that I threw frayed shoes.
We say you do everything
and that's why I done threw frayed shoes.

(instrumental break)

Aw, go home, George!

Well, you done bombed my house.
Bombed my car.
Drank my liquor from an old fruit jar.
You do anything that you wanna do.
And that's why Dubya, I threw them frayed shoes!

And don't you
know that I threw frayed shoes.
We say you do everything
and that's why I done threw frayed shoes.

(instrumental break)

Well, it's one for the money.
Two for the show.
You messed up my country
so go, Bush, go!

And don't you
know that I threw frayed shoes.
We say you do everything
and that's why I done threw frayed shoes.

Well, it's...
threw, threw, threw frayed shoes
threw, threw, threw frayed shoes
(Yeah!)
threw, threw, threw frayed shoes
(Baby!)
threw, threw, threw frayed shoes
We say you do everything
and that's why I done threw frayed shoes.

Fantastic size 15 Jimmy Spooofs on display here!

Great parody, but the line about drinking liquor from a fruit jar does not go with Islam's characteristic teetotalism. Here are your Size 15 Nunn-Bush loafers! (5-5-5 vote, and I will have none of Bush, get it?)
