The Ballad of Dubya Bush
(Sung to the tune of "The Ballad of Jed Clampett" from "The Beverly Hillbillies")
By Dennis Baer & Bill Tong

(instrumental intro)

Here's a story 'bout a Bush, whose brother's name is Jeb.
Who ran courting bigots in the South to stay ahead.
He looked quite dazed, while shooting off his mouth.
His "compassionate conservatism" captured the South.

(Spoken:) Policy, that is... Texas Bush-wah...

Americans knew Dubya was a millionaire.
To poor folks said, "Vote for me, I'll be fair."
The White House in Washington is where he wants to be,
So he ran a campaign where he lied so cleverly.

(Spoken:) Shills, they are... media fools... campaign tricks...

Election time went by, and late results caused Bush to grin.
Five judges on the Supreme Court said "Dubya is in."
Republicans will cheat to win, yet preach morality.
Now this Resident will pay back donors' hospitality.

(Spoken:) Y'all can't go back and vote now, ya hear?
