"Time To Go! DoubleU
(To be chanted to rap music)
With a lone-star cowboy at the helm of State
Time for the rest of us to step up to the plate.
The lone star state, is a mighty fine state,
But forty-nine others are just as great!
Old timers begged you to change your way,
Time for a one-way ticket to Guantanamo Bay.
The cry is rising from all fifty now
Time for you to take your final bow.
You don't represent us
When you dress 'em up in orange;
Cage 'em shut, without a trial--
Then beat 'em, all round the dial.
Why have a congress, when it matters not a damn
What others think of Iraq and Iran?
Fighting for democracy?
Now that's a laugh!
First practice it at home,
Before giving them a mighty shaft.
Lone star cowboy, first elected on a hair,
We won't even bother, going there.
Listen to the groundswell,
They clamor for your fall,
You don't represent us—no, not at all!

Just Call ‘Em Terrorists
(To be chanted like rap)
Thought Clinton the master
At parsing words!
‘Cum now man,
That’s totally absurd!
Now we have a leader
Who thinks it’s OK
To make other state’s military
Terrorists, Just say!
Imagine how we’d boil
If they said of the Marines:
All they are is
Terrorists from Queens!
Clinton faced impeachment
For parsing words.
Bush redefines nations,
As terrorists or Kurds.
