WHEN BUSHIE GOES MARCHING IN

by David Lefkowitz (sung to “When Johnny Comes Marching Home” by Patrick Gilmore)

When Bushie goes marching in again
Iraq, Iraq
His useless dad can grin again
Iraq, Iraq
The job he botched in `91
Will get cleaned up by his evil song
The fun begins as Bushie goes marching in.

It’s time to make the Muslims see
Iraq, Iraq
That they should live like you and me
Iraq, Iraq
That it is right and it is good
To smoke and drink and eat fast food
And to watch TV when Bushie goes marching in

Who flew the planes on 9-11?
Iraq, Iraq
And when the dirty deed was done
Iraq, Iraq
We blamed it on Osama bin Laden
But soon his name was nearly forgotten
Don’t look for sense when Bushie goes marching in.

The French, the Russians and Chinese
Iraq, Iraq
Make hypocritical calls for peace
Iraq, Iraq
But Bush and Cheney, they don’t care
So what if they sacrifice Tony Blair?
You can smell the sleaze everywhere
When Bushie goes marching in

And if a few Americans die
Iraq, Iraq
If poison gas makes children cry
Iraq, Iraq
That’s just the price we pay, you know,
For Haliburton’s portfolio
It’ll go sky-high so Bushie goes marching in.

The more things change the more they don’t
Iraq, Iraq
With Bush in charge, they surely won’t
Iraq, Iraq
`Cause moguls do whatever they wanna
When there’s a pax Americana
It’s all death and dishonna
When Bushie goes marching in
When Bushie goes marching in
When Bushie goes marching in
When Bushie goes marching in . . .

COVER’D WITH CRAP

When I was a sailor, I wore a fine cap
And all the young maidens, they sat in me lap
But then they’d jump up, and they’d leave with a slap
`Cause me pants and me undies were covered with crap.

Cover’d with crap
Cover’d with crap
Oh, bring me a dish towel I’m cover’d with crap

I went to the doctor, he gave me a salve
But that only worsened the ailment I have
Me bowels keep churning all night and all day
To drive all the people of Dublin away

“Away!,” they would say
Their arms they would flap
From the stink and the stench of me cover’d with crap

Cover’d with crap
Cover’d with crap
I canna wear white, `cause I’m cover’d with crap

I called up the daughter of old Mrs. Klein
And over the phone, well, she liked me just fine
I hoped that I’d soon get a taste of vagin’
But, alas, first I had to take her out to dine

We entered the restaurant without a mishap
And greeted the maîtr d’ – quite a nice chap
But soon he said, “You there, you’ll not eat a scrap;
You’ll get us closed down, `cause you’re covered with crap!”

Cover’d with crap
Cover’d with crap
Each smear brings a tear when you’re cover’d with crap.

So now I’m an old man
My life has grown thin
I’ve no time for sailin’ or sportin’ or sin
I wait for me heavenly rest to begin
And hope that St. Peter will let this fool in

But I know too well hope is only a trap
And I’m hearing those pearly gates close with a snap
`Cause who wants an angel with poop in his lap,
Brown wings, and a halo all covered with crap?

Cover’d with crap
Cover’d with crap
Eternity beckons all cover’d with crap.

DON’T MESS WITH US

If you try to kill the Jews
Here’s a little piece of news:
God will stop you, and he’ll drop you dead instead
He got Hitler
He got Haman
And a dozen I’m not namin’
So don’t mess with the Jews
Or you’ll lose

If your aim is genocide
Then you’d better run and hide
`cause HaShem will turn the tide until you drown
Every exile and pogrom
We’ve emerged triumphant from
`Cause the Lord is our sword and our drum

So if you’re a neo-Nazi
And you think you’re hotsy-totsy
Or you’re blowing up civilians on a bus
You had best leave us alone
Or we’ll hora on your bones
You’ll be stuck, Chuck, so don’t muck with us.

So listen here, you goyim
Every girl and every boyim
Anti-Semitism brings you only tears
`Cause HaShem is in our corner
He will make your mom a mourner
For the sake of your kids
Be a friend to the Yids
Treat us nice, treat us well
Or you’ll barbecue in hell
It’s been like this for 5000 years.

Yagga dagga dagga dee, bugga bye
Buh buh buh buh bumm
Yooy booy bye bye dye byeyubuh
Yubba bubba bumm, hoy!
