BushWhacked

Old King George, what a merry old soul,
and such merry old friends has he.
With jokesters Dick and Rummy in tow,
Such a happy old bumbler he be.

"Let's start a war
it looks like such fun
how can we lose when
We've got the biggest guns?"  

Jobs going east
Economy going south
Glaciers melting at the poles
yet we're left out in the cold  

We've been BushWhacked! .. BushWhacked!
When's it gonna stop?  

As New Orleans flooded, and lives slipped away,
Brownie was excited, it was his turn to play
Carefully picking out his tie and his shirt
He stayed clear away from the mud and the dirt  

"This is just what we needed
to clear the poor folk out
now we round up all our good friends
and farm the money out"  

Jobs going east
Economy going south
Glaciers melting at the poles
yet we're left out in the cold  

We've been BushWhacked! .. BushWhacked!
When's it gonna stop?  

As we're talking on our telephones,
With all our friends about work and play
Curious George is listening in
Hangin' on every word that we say...  

"Here in my castle
I've enemies all around
what better way to find them
than to shut the constitution down"  

Jobs going east
Economy going south
Glaciers melting at the poles
yet we're left out in the cold  

We've been BushWhacked! .. BushWhacked!
When's it gonna stop?
