The Lyrics

Saddam Hussein is dead. Executed. Hanged like a traitor. Does that mean "Mission Accomplished"? Does that mean the 9/11 attacks are avenged? Does that mean the 3,000 American troops so far who have died in Iraq -- now more than died in 9/11 -- didn't die for nothing?
told me that it's true.
Bad guy's life is through.
Oh, whoa!
I, of course, reply
just because he's died
Bush ain't justified!

said someday you'll find
weapons so refined!
Oh, whoa!
Bush is still a liar.
You must realize
smoke-and-mirrors lies.

So I tell
them and I get a laugh
to think that I doubt their Bush.
Yet today
more soldiers blown away.
The envelope he'll
(Envelope push!)

soldiers still have died.
Bush ain't justified!
Oh, whoa!
So I groan and say
no matter how he tries
smoke-and-mirrors lies.
(Smoke-and-mirrors lies.)
(Smoke-and-mirrors lies.)


Think Bush is jumping up and down at his desert, I mean ranch, in Crawford, Texas, saying, "Yay! I won! I killed Saddam! Mission accomplished! I win!" Yeah, he is.
