Song Challenge: Bushie Was a Warrior

Subject: Song Challenge: Bushie Was a Warrior
From: Mark Cohen

On Saturday at the San Francisco Festival of the Sea I heard at least three or four versions of "Boney Was a Warrior," and there's a current thread about the song. So this popped into my head, and rather than try to come up with fifteen or twenty verses on my own, I thought I'd troll a couple and see what bites. Feel free to process, twist, mangle, steal, whatever.


BUSHIE WAS A WARRIOR

Bushie was a warrior
Way, hey, yah!
An anti-terror worrier
George Dub-yah!

He went to Yale for drink-eye-in'
He wasn't much for think-eye-in'

Well Bushie was his Daddy's boy
The State of Texas was his toy

His Daddy fought the Roosh-eye-ans
But George pissed off the Proosh-eye-ans

The hurricane was threatenin'
But Bushie was vacationin'

Well New Orleans was in a fix
So Bushie played some guitar licks

And so on...
Obviously I've left out some stuff...like the election, and Iraq, and Cheney, and Halliburton, and the Saudis, and Condoleeza Rice, and Mission Accomplished, and...

Have fun!

Aloha,
Mark

Oh, Mark, why didn't we have this BEFORE our gig at the Strafford County Democratic Picnic last Sunday?!?

Sounds like material for next year, though . . .

Hey, I love it. More please.

You might be interested in the following DT thread:

http://www.mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=79667#1454579

It contains a bunch of anti-Bush songs by DT'ers, plus some outside goodies from Yikes McGee, Peggy Seeger and so on.

It also has links to earlier anti-Bush song threads.

The anti-Bush song movement is alive and well. If you scroogle that term, you'll find quite a variety out there on the web.

Long may it wave.

My suggestion is to change it to "Georgie was a warrior, etc." It's more demeaning to call him by a diminutive (just don't change it further to 'Geordie,' because you'll have a whole lot of ticked-off Brits gunning for you).

One more verse:

He liked to snort a little coke
Way, hey, yah!
He liked it 'til the mirror broke!
George Dub-yah!

Our Bushie Never Saw a Fight,
Way Hey Yah.
But wears his uniform despite
George Dubay.

Sorry for the creep, but I came up with this yesterday, for anyone going on the march on the 24th.

The tune is "I Went Down to the River to Pray" (As sung in "Oh Brother Where Ar Thou?")

I am going to DC
To tell George W to listen to me.
To tell him the war in Iraq must end,
Oh who'll stand with me.

Thousands lost to Bush's pride.
How many more young men must die?
Thousands lost to Bush's pride
Oh who'll stand with me.

Thousands lost to Bush's pride
How many more young women must die?
etc.

Thousands lost to Bush's pride.
How many more little children must die.
Thousands etc.
