Sing along, Part II

--------------------------------------------------

BUSH.
When I was a boy I was sent over
To boarding school at Phillips Andover.
Playing boys' sports was hard for me,
So I led the cheers for the Academy.
CHORUS.
He led the cheers for the Academy.
BUSH.
I led the cheers so spiritedlee,
That now I am the Leader of The World That's Free!
CHORUS.
He led the cheers so spiritedlee,
That now he is the Leader of The World That's Free!

BUSH.
As prep school boy I then was given
A legacy place in Yale New Haven.
The keg man of my fraternity,
I earned myself a gentleman's C.
CHORUS.
He earned himself a gentleman's C.
BUSH.
That gentleman's C did so well for me,
That now I am the Leader of The World That's Free!
CHORUS.
That gentleman's C did so well for he,
That now he is the Leader of The World That's Free!

BUSH.
On leaving Yale I joined the vanguard
Of the Vietnam War -- in the Tex AN Guard.
And when I wasn't fighting Charlie,
I went campaigning in Alabamee.
CHORUS.
He went campaigning in Alabamee.
BUSH.
That kind of campaign so suited me,
That now I am the Leader of The World That's Free!
CHORUS.
That kind of campaign so suited he,
That now he is the Leader of The World That's Free!

BUSH.
Harvard's cloisters I next did darken
Before getting a seat on the Board of Harken.
My insider stock sale made my day,
As I got rich thanks to my MBA.
CHORUS.
He got rich thanks to his MBA.
BUSH.
That MBA so qualified me,
To be CEO of The World That's Free!
CHORUS.
That MBA so qualified he,
To be CEO of The World That's Free!

BUSH.
The Texas governorship I then sought
With GOP support which my daddy wrought.
I always did as Karl Rove said,
And I rarely let a thought enter my head.
CHORUS.
He rarely let a thought enter his head.
BUSH.
I thought so little, they rewarded me
By running me for Leader of The World That's Free!
CHORUS.
He thought so little, they rewarded he
By running him for Leader of The World That's Free!

BUSH.
Now young folks all, whoever you may be,
If you want to rise to the top of the tree,
If you don't mind being a puppet or a tool,
Be careful to be guided by this golden rule.
CHORUS.
Be careful to be guided by this golden rule.
BUSH.
Get the right strings pulled...and work hardly...,
And y'all may be leaders of The World That's Free!
CHORUS.
Get the right strings pulled and work hardly,
And y'all may be leaders of The World That's Free!

3. When I Was a Lad is my favorite Gilbert & Sullivan
Good spoof, but there is no topping the original!

I polished that handle so care-full-lee
That now I am the Ruler of the Queen's Nav-ee...
