State of George Bush Jr.

inspirational materials for all W. unsupporters
Heard this song lately, and just thought it was perfect. It was written by
Phil Ochs, and was originally "The State of Richard Nixon." I've modified it to
fit the current administration. Attached is an mp3 of the original song.


Here's to the State of George Bush Jr.
For underneath his borders the devil draws the line
If you drag his muddy rivers nameless bodies you will find
And the fat trees of the forest have hid a thousand crimes
And the calendar is lyin' when it reads the present time
Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of
George Bush Jr., find yourself another country to be part of

And here's to the schools of George Bush Jr.
Where they're teachin' all the children they don't have to care
All the rudiments of hatred are present everywhere
And every single classroom is a factory of despair
Oh, there's nobody learnin' such a foreign word as "fair"
Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of
George Bush Jr., find yourself another country to be part of

And here's to the laws of George Bush Jr.
Where the wars are fought in secret, Pearl Harbor every day
He punishes with income tax that he don't have to pay
And he's tapping his own brother just to hear what he would say
But corruption can be classic in the George Bush Jr. way
Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of
George Bush Jr. find yourself another country to be part of

And here's to the churches of George Bush Jr. and Billy Graham
Where the cross, once made of silver, now is caked with rust
And the Sunday mornin' sermons pander to their lust
All the fallen face of Jesus is chokin' in the dust
And Heaven only knows in which God they can trust
Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of
George Bush Jr. find yourself another country to be part of

And here's to the government of George Bush Jr.
In the swamp of their bureaucracy they're always boggin' down
And criminals are posing as advisors to the crown
And they hope that no one sees the sights and no one hears the sound
And the speeches of the President are the ravings of a clown
Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of
George Bush Jr. find yourself another country to be part of
Here's to the state of George W 07.Oct.2004 16:10

Great idea! We had a similar one and changed Phil Ochs's song into a complete new version. His sister is in on it.

Best of courage and good luck in your work to defeat Bush!
