From the recording Warning Bell
Dubya (capo on fret 5- in C)
All of the presidents had nicknames.
I know ‘cause Wikipedia says it’s true.
The Creep, Tricky Dick, JFK, FDR
(but none as) many as our W.
King George, The Decider, Bush Jr., the Shrub,
But none of them fit too well.
So now they just call him W
Because it is easier to spell.
C D G Em
Yippie eye, yippie ay, He doesn’t care what we say.
War profits are swell, so the planet goes to hell.
C D G-Em C D G
Now they just call him W, … ‘cause it’s easier to spell.
History also leaves accolades
For the great deeds out leaders can muster.
Sword of the Revolution, Atlas of Independence,
The Great Emancipator, and Trustbuster.
But when all the stats are finally in
I’m sure it couldn’t be any plainer.
The one thing that George did best of all
He’ll go down as The Great Vacationer.
(Yes, that’s very good…D-u-b-y-a.)
