Now if I could just get to play this with the boys in the band...but I'll probably get waterboarded instead.

Cheney for Nothing

(vague ambient sounds)

(cue Sting)

I want my...

I want my...

I want my...Dick Chen-eeeeey...

(crescendo)

(thunderous Knopfler guitar riff)

Now look at them pundits, that's the way you spin it
You play the pres'dent on the Fox Tee-Vee
War ain't workin' but that's the way you do it
Cheney does nothin' and the troops still bleed

War ain't workin' but that's the way you do it
Lemme tell ya dat Shrub is dumb
Maybe spend some time clearin' brush down in Crawford
Maybe just let his lil' brain go numb

He gotta rig some more elections
Undercut our democracy
He gotta move these demonstrators
He gotta serve these corp'rate Vee Pee-eees

See the little Dubya with the smirk in the closeup
Frat boy with the vacant stare
The little Dubya got his own agenda
The little Dubya, he just don't care

He gotta be in undisclosed locations
Forget 'bout constitutionality
He gotta tazer these demonstrators
He gotta lie 'bout those W M Deeeees (looka dat, looka dat)

I shoulda learned to read "My Pet Goat"
I shoulda learned to say "Bring 'em on"
Look at that Condie, she's happy hangin' with "her Fox guys"
Still says "no cut and run"

And he's up there, what's that? "Mission accomplished"?
Lyin' to the people 'bout the insurgency
War ain't workin' but that's the way you do it
Cheney does nothin' and the troops still bleed

He gotta make sure they stay on message
Find more neocon nominees
He gotta bust some more demonstrators
He gotta shill for the homeland securit-ee-eeee

War ain't workin' but that's the way you do it
You play the pres'dent on the Fox Tee-Vee
War ain't workin' but that's the way you do it
Cheney does nothin' and the troops still bleed
Cheney does nothin' and the troops still bleed
