Condoleezza, leeza lie
You're workin' oh so hard to please
The thieves who squeeze our country dry
Condoleeza on the town
You'll be one of the folks who'll be weepin'
When Massa George goes in the cold, cold ground
I invoke the name of Tubman and of Crispus Attucks, too
Of Dubois and Frederick Douglass
You think they'd cast their votes for you? No, no, no!
Because they know the game you're playing
And they know which side you're on
You shuck and jive for the honky bossman
Till the early hours of dawn
You think it helps in Watts or Harlem
Or in Detroit going downhill
When Massa George says to the rich folks
"Come to the trough and eat your fill"
We know that war is good for no one
But when all is said and done
It's not the Bush twine who'll be dying
'Neath the warm Iraqi sun
Say goodbye to George Bush and his jackels
Say goodbye to his warmongers too
It's time to put John Kerry in the Whitehouse
And show the people what this democrat will do
And say goodbye to that stalwart Dick Cheney
We'll really miss him when he is long gone
And say goodbye to old Haliburton
They've milked the system now for much too long
And say goodbye to the fair Condoleezza
Although she tickles the ivories quite well
She's worked too long as a shill for the Pentagon
With only death and destruction to sell
We stand today in the old town of Boston
We stand with heads that are proudly held high
We stand for jobs, schools, and national health insurance
And for a world where no more soldiers have to die.
