Ballad of the War Protestors
(Sung to the tune of "Ballad of John & Yoko" by John Lennon)
Guest song parody by Michael Pacholek

(instrumental intro)

Sitting there in front of the TV,
Watching them take potshots at France.
The man said "Attack! Just go to war with Iraq!"
They never gave diplomacy a real chance.
John, you know it ain't easy.
Sure wasn't easy for you.
The way things are going,
They'll blow me away too.

Colin Powell lied at the U.N.
'Bout all the weapons held by Hussein.
Tony Blair called to say,
"You can make it okay,
We'll have the summit in the Azores near Spain."
John, you know it ain't easy.
Sure wasn't easy for you.
The way things are going,
They'll blow me away too.

Dixie Chicks were talkin' in London;
The critics of those girls will not cease.
The right-wingers said,
"Why don't you just go to bed?
You know nobody wants to hear about peace!"
John, you know it ain't easy.
Sure wasn't easy for you.
The way things are going,
They'll blow me away too.

Threw away our money for a rainy day;
Treating billionaires like charity.
Last night the wife said,
"Rich guys, when they're dead,
they'll have to do explaining for their souls!
Finks!"

Watching Michael Moore at the Oscars:
"... Fictitious Prez," he started to gag.
The newspapers said,
"That fatso's sick in the head!
And he's a major-league disgrace to the Flag!"
John, you know it ain't easy.
Sure wasn't easy for you.
The way things are going,
They'll blow me away too.

Looking out at Kerry and Graham,
Lieberman, John Edwards and Dean.
The men from the press said, "We've gotta confess:
Bush says we gotta treat you boys really mean!"
John! You know it ain't easy.
Sure wasn't easy for you.
The way things are going,
They'll blow me away too.
The way things are going
They'll blow me away too!
