Battle Hymn of the Chimp
BATTLE HYMN OF THE CHIMP


Mine Eyes have seen the bungling of that stumbling moron Bush;
he has blathered all the drivel that the neo-cons can push;
he has lost sight of all reason 'cause his head is up his tush;
The Doofus marches on.

I have heard him butcher syntax like a kindergarten fool;
There is warranted suspicion that he never went to school;
Should we fault him for the policies - or is he just their tool?
The lies keep piling on.

Glory! Glory! How he'll Screw Ya'!
Glory! Glory! How he'll Screw Ya'!
Glory! Glory! How he'll Screw Ya'!
His wreckage will live on.

I have seen him cut the taxes of the billionaires' lone heir;
As he spends another zillion on an aircraft carrier;
Let the smokestacks keep polluting - do we really need clean air?
The surplus is now gone.

Glory! Glory! How he'll Screw Ya'!
Glory! Glory! How he'll Screw Ya'!
Glory! Glory! How he'll Screw Ya'!
Your safety net is gone!

Now he's got a mighty hankerin' to bomb a prostrate state;
Though the whole world knows its crazy - and the U.N. says to wait;
When he doesn't have the evidence, "We must prevaricate."
Diplomacy is done!

Oh, a trumped-up war is excellent; we have no moral bounds;
Should the reasons be disputed, we'll just make up other grounds;
Enraging several billions - to his brainlessness redounds;
The Doofus marches on!


Glory! Glory! How he'll Screw Ya'!
Glory! Glory! How he'll Screw Ya'!
Glory! Glory! How he'll Screw Ya'!
The Doofus Marches On!

2. Warning to others: Do NOT read this while taking a drink of anything!
I damned near spit my drink out when I read "The Doofus marches on!"

7. actually there are alot of parodies
although the one posted here is probably the best, it is very similar to the first link

http://www.jut.net/weblog/?p=418

and the washington press corps serenaded Bush 41 with this verse in 1992

Mine eyes have seen the glo-ry of a kind-er, gen-tler land
With a cop on eve-ry cor-ner and a gun in eve-ry hand.
Ti-ny tots in pub-lic schools pledge al-le-giance on com-mand
George Bush is in com-mand.


Refrain:
Sis-boom-bah and al-le-lu-ia.
"Read my lips" so I can rule ya.
Ken-ne-bunk-port to Mau-i's sand.
George Bush is in com-mand.

10. I got this from my girlfriend, who expected that it might have
appeared on DU already. I had not seen it previously, so I posted it. I changed the title from "Republicans" to "Chimp" because it seemed to fit better.
