The Corporate Press Is Your Best Friend
(Sung to the tune of "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" by Marilyn Monroe)
Guest song parody by Larry Martin

(As sung by Corporate Media CEO's to George W. Bush)

(instrumental intro)

Enron is long gone - no one thinks about it,
'Cause the corporate press is your best friend.
Tell lies to start a war - no one will ever doubt it,
When the corporate press is your best friend.

You'll get rich, we'll get rich.
And all the rich will get richer in the end.
Forget about the poor - we're for Bush in 2004.
The corporate press is your best friend.

A terrorist attack can be quite beneficial
When the corporate press is your best friend.
Invading Iraq can seem quite Presidential
When the corporate press is your best friend.

You play Top Gun, we'll all have fun
And we'll make you a hero with our spin.
Yes, we are biased - for the right-wing ultra-pious
'Cause the corporate press is your best friend

Take away their freedoms, people may grow to hate you,
But the corporate press is your best friend.
We'll wrap you in the flag and let no one debate you,
Cause the corporate press is your best friend.

Did cocaine?  Didn't fly your plane?
It really doesn't matter in the end.
Cause there is no scandal that we can't ignore or handle,
When the corporate press is your best friend.
