Subject: Lyr Add: DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE NEO-CONS (N Blake)
From: Arkie
Date: 24 Oct 08 - 08:49 PM

Every now and then a country singer expresses an opinion about the current state of affairs. Here is one example.

DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE NEO-CONS
Norman Blake

1. And away down yonder in the Florida sand
Old Jeb Bush is a mighty man.
He told little brother, "don't be blue
For I'm a-gonna hand this thing to you."

2. The churches all got on board
In the Holy name of our Lord.
They took him for their favorite son
And they sent him away to Washington.

3. Now Georgie Bush, he is the man.
He landed in Afghanistan.
"We'll get Osama" was his crack,
And now we're stranded in Iraq.

4. He told ol' Rumsfeld on the green
"Now, you're the best I've ever seen.
Just heed my words and you'll go far,
And help me win my daddy's war."

5. Oh, Cheney lives away downtown
By a cement bunker underground.
No more he'll roam Wyoming's hills.
Halliburton is his thrill.

6. Don't send your money to Washington
To fight a war that's never done.
Don't play their games, don't be their pawns,
And don't be afraid of the neo-cons.

7. Katrina blew through the town.
Black waters flooded all around.
No money to raise the levees high,
And so we watched New Orleans die.

8. Bill Clinton was a Democrat.
He saved us money in his hat.
He fell from grace, the story goes,
Then Georgie put us in the hole.

9. Now Casey was Cindy's son.
He marched away with his gun,
For a noble cause, he heard Bush say.
He died in a war so far away.

10. Now Georgie is kind and meek.
He kissed the king upon his cheek.
They walked the garden hand in hand
As the oil and blood dripped on the sand.

11. And now my little song is done
'Bout the neo-cons in Washington.
No more I'll sing these words again.
You can see it all on CNN.

12. Don't send your money to Washington
To fight a war that's never done.
Don't play their games, don't be their pawns,
And don't be afraid of the neo-cons.
