Head full of Pictures

This song is about George W Bush. The title occurred to me one morning before I'd even had my coffee.
hey George, Im talkin to you
youre bringin me disgrace
pretending to be my president
and you were never even elected in the first place
spendin all my money
on that really ugly war
and lyin to everybody
about the reasons that its for
well, its oil money, George
its been that way right from the start
Petroleum Bonaparte

hey George, whats the body count
does anybody know
when theyre brown and foreign do you bother
or do you just let them go
and when the coffins come back home
with our daughters and our sons
do you thank the parents and give them a medal
and ask them for another one
its kinda cold that way, isnt it
its been that way right from the start
Petroleum Bonaparte

hey George, its not funny
but I dont think youre very smart
in fact I think youre kinda stupid
youre just play acting the part
like a psychopathic puppet
with a pocket full of knives
it kinda feels good, doesnt it
to be cuttin up peoples lives
its a cynical proposition, George
its been that way right from the start
Petroleum Bonaparte

hey George
you always did want to make a lot of noise
now you can see yourself up there on the mountain side
with the other bully boys
right there in the spotlight of the world
for everybody to see
well, theres more than one way
to go down in history
and its been headed that way
right from the start
Petroleum Bonaparte

hey George, I hate to tell you
but youre headed for a fall
your engines overheating
and you are way beyond recall
somebody cut the break lines
and your steering wheel just spins
and theres a Waterloo with your name on it
comin up around the bend
its a dead end proposition, George
its been that way right from the start
Petroleum Bonaparte
