    Bush Was Right

    by The Right Brothers

    Freedom in Afghanistan, say goodbye Taliban
    Free elections in Iraq, Saddam Hussein locked up
    Osama's staying underground, Al Qaida now is finding out
    America won't turn and run once the fighting has begun
    Libya turns over nukes, Lebanese want freedom, too
    Syria is forced to leave, don't you know that all this means

    Bush was right!
    Bush was right!
    Bush was right!

    Democracy is on the way, hitting like a tidal wave
    All over the middle east, dictators walk with shaky knees
    Don't know what they're gonna do, their worst nightmare is coming true
    They fear the domino effect, they're all wondering who's next

    Bush was right!
    Bush was right!
    Bush was right!

    Ted Kennedy - wrong!
    Cindy Sheehan - wrong!
    France - WRONG!
    Zell Miller - right!

    Economy is on the rise kicking into overdrive
    Angry liberals can't believe it's cause of W's policies
    Unemployment's staying down, Democrats are wondering how
    Revenue is going up, can you say "Tax Cuts"

    Bush was right!
    Bush was right!
    Bush was right!

    Cheney was right, Condi was right,
    Rummy was right, Blair was right
    You were right, We were right, "The Right" was right
    and Bush was right...
    Bush was right!
    Bush was right!

    According to rumor, an anti-Bush song.. I haven't bothered to verify since I don't care. Good music is good music. :)

    How this thread got to be 45 minutes old without Echo posting 17 Neil Young songs is quite remarkable.


    Or she could just be busy elsewhere I suppose. :D

    Marat/Sade Free MP3, Song Download, Lyrics - Judy Collins - In My Life

    I can only find a fragment of my favorite political song on line

    Judy does a smashing job of singing this song if you can find the album "In my life" which is, incidently, her best album.

    Here's the lyrics, as best as I can transcribe them from memory

    HOMAGE TO MARAT
    From "Marat Sade"


    Four years after the revolution and the old king's execution
    Four years after I remember how those courtiers took their final bow:

    String up every aristocrat!
    Out with the priests and let them live on their fat!

    Four years after we started fighting
    Marat keeps on with his writing
    Four years after the Bastille fell
    He still recalls that old battle yell:

    Down with all of the ruling class!
    Throw all the generals out on their arse!

    Good old Marat by your side we'll stand or fall
    You're the only one that we can trust at all

    Four years he fought
    and he fought unafraid
    Sniffing down traitors
    by traitors betrayed.
    Marat in the courtroom
    Marat underground
    Sometimes the otter
    and sometimes the hound.
    Fighting all the gentry
    and fighting every priest
    Businessman the bourgeois,
    the military beast.
    Marat always ready
    to stifle every scheme
    of the sons of the arse licking dying regime.

    We've got new generals
    our leaders are new.
    They sit and they argue
    and all that they do
    Is sell their own colleagues
    and ride upon their backs
    And jail them
    and break them
    and give them all the axe

    Screaming in language that no one understands
    Of the rights that we grabbed with our own bleeding hands
    When we wiped out the bosses and stormed through the wall
    Of the prison they told us would outlast us all

    Marat we're poor
    And the poor stay poor.
    Marat don't make us wait anymore
    We want our rights, and we don't care how
    We want our revolution
    NOW.

    Why do they have the gold?
    Why do they have the power?
    Why why why why why...
    Do they have the friends at the top?
    Why do they have the jobs at the top?

    We've got nothing.
    Always had nothing
    Nothing but holes
    and millions of them.
    Living in holes
    dying in holes
    holes in our bellies
    and holes in our clothes

    Marat we're poor
    And the poor stay poor
    Marat don't make us wait anymore
    We want our rights, and we don't care how.
    We want our revolution....
    NOW.

    Poor old Marat they hunt you down
    The bloodhounds are sniffing all over the town
    Just yesterday, they smashed your press
    And now they're asking your friends..
    your home address

    Poor old Marat in you we trust
    You work till your eyes are as red as rust
    Poor old Marat
    in you..
    we..
    trust.
