Bush-War Blues


Me and my wife heard the president declare,
"We're going to go to war 'cause of the weapons there!"

Chorus:

I got the Bush-war blues,
Oh, the Bush-war blues.
I got the Bush-war blues,
Really gonna spread the news.


Me and my wife heard the president say,
"Iraqi oil means we won't have to pay."

Chorus


The president said that the fighting was done,
"Mission Accomplished, the war's been won."

Chorus


But we're still fighting in Iraq,
The people there don't like us, and that's a fact.

Chorus


The president called for sacrifice,
But his rich friends don't have to pay the price.

Chorus


Butter for the rich, guns for the poor,
That's the way it works when the country goes to war.

Chorus
