Oust George Bush Song
(Sing to "Five Foot Two" a/k/a "Has Anybody Seen My Gal?")
It's time to oust them from DC.
Evict George Bush and all his pals.
Screwed New Yawk,
Yet those hawks,
Act as if they did not balk
At sending help to our locale.
Now if you run into
A Bushie crew,
Wand'ring the streets.
Tell them you
Love Dubya too.
Then explain that west is east.
But don't you shove.
That won't do.
Cops will grab you right on cue,
Which only helps George Bush's pals.
The rest is here with a midi sing-along link:
