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?
They
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!
(Doo-doo-doo.)
(Doo-doo-doo.)
(Doo-doo-doo.)
(Whoa!)

They
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
still
push!
(Envelope push!)

Now
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.)

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.
