Glory, Glory What a Helluva Way to Die (sing along!)
Sung to the tune of the Battle Hymn of the Republic.

===

His name is Richard Cheney, he's a man of simple words
Dismissing all who criticize as simple-minded turds
The stent beside his heart tonight is clogging from the curds
He ain't having fun no more

Glory, Glory, what a helluva way to die,
Glory, Glory, what a helluva way to die,
Glory, Glory, what a helluva way to die!
He ain't having fun no more

Karl Rove can stroke his flabby chin until it turns rose red
He can't avoid the awful truth that his career is dead
He needs to move to Kyrgystan and change his name to Fred
He ain't having fun no more

Glory, Glory, what a helluva way to die,
Glory, Glory, what a helluva way to die,
Glory, Glory, what a helluva way to die!
He ain't having fun no more

Libby scoots from here to there, looking for a sign
Hannah went to speak with Fitz, with Wurmser close behind
Scooter knows this curtain close will not be very kind
He ain't having fun no more

Glory, Glory, what a helluva way to die,
Glory, Glory, what a helluva way to die,
Glory, Glory, what a helluva way to die!
He ain't having fun no more

As Georgie boy just sits there with a dumb look on his face
Thinking once again his ass will be saved by his base
He wants a drink, oh yes he does, oh please, God, just a taste
He ain't having fun no more

Glory, Glory, what a helluva way to die,
Glory, Glory, what a helluva way to die,
Glory, Glory, what a helluva way to die!
He ain't having fun no more

(I stole the theme outright from an old 82nd Airborne song from WWII)

7. Confess now, you got the idea for this from
http://www.west-point.org/users/usma1981/38405/west_poi...

the Battle hymn spoof called 'Blood on the Risers,' that old favorite of paratroopers everywhere.

The link above has it in print and sound. Airborne!

12. Yup! Check my link last post, that's Blood on the Risers
I'll leave the lyrics at the site the link goes to, but 'Blood on the Risers' is a very, very popular WW II era Paratrooper song.

I read your lyrics and I saw the spirit and cadance of that song in it, not the Battle Hymn of the Republic.

Thanks for jogging the memories. I listened to it while I was over there at that site. Brought back memories it did.

10. Great re-tuning ! Have you seen the one on Ohio Vote Fraud ?
From http://www.oilempire.us/stolenelection2004.html

""Vote Fraud in Ohio

Lost ballots and Diebold's counting
We're finally on our own
This winter I hear Bush laughing
Vote Fraud in Ohio

Gotta get real ballots
Paperless taking us down
Should have been done long ago
Keep blacks from voting and
TV won't make a sound
Kerry won, but he said no.

Vote Fraud in Ohio
Vote Fraud in Florida
Vote Fraud in Nevada
Vote Fraud in Iowa
Vote Fraud New Mexico ...""

Also, I love the CSI TV serie's use of Who theme music. Hopefully DUers or Mr Pitt can put Let's See Action to good use. It is sung with two groups each repeating the line the other group just sang out. Verrry kick ass if done correctly. Inspires the troops for battle with the enemy !

11. It's so strange
that these brave guys never dared to do what they would send others to do. You have captured their essence. Well done!

13. it's hard marking this time...and this is a good way to do it...humming...
but... :eyes: :D

I'm singing...and washing windows and walking and doing anything to deal with it.

We hope FINALLY we have the big story to just put a shaft through their armor and draw blood...yet we are sort of "whistling past graveyards" of our hopes that have gone down before. So many defeats and so few successes...dare we hope with the few threads of hope we have left.

I don't know. But...HUMMING AND SINGING IS GOOD! WE NEED SPIRIT...Oh.. do we need some SPIRIT! :patriot: and :smiles:

18. "Blood on the Risers" I always heard it "Gory, gory..."
Edited on Thu Oct-20-05 01:42 AM by Hissyspit
Apparently things are going to get pretty 'gory' in the White House before it is all over, as well they should.
