WWLGD–What Would Lesley Gore Do?

Ahem. In honor of Dubya’s ignominious week-that-was, I offer the following. To the tune of Lesley Gore’s “It’s My Party”:

Nobody knows where my country has gone;

The senators grew a big spine

Why did they stand up to me?

The whole world’s supposed to be mine!

It’s my country and I’ll spy if I want to,

Spy if I want to,

Spy if I want to–

You would spy too if it happened to you!

Dems and Republicans walked through the door,

Voted against my big plan–

How could they do this to me?

I thought that I was the Man!

It’s my country and I’ll lie if I want to,

Lie if I want to,

Lie if I want to–

You would lie too if it happened to you!

I’m gonna torture those punks in Iraq,

Steal all their oil for my friends–

I’m gonna strap their ass to the rack,

And I’m not making amends!

It’s my country and you’ll die if I want you,

Die if I want you,

Die if I want you!

You will die too, ’cause I told you to do!

  1. Ohhhhhh, Bina..that’s cold.
    True…damn straight…and right on freakin’ target….but still cold. 🙂
    We all know what Lesley Gore did after the original “It’s My Party”…see the follow up, “Judy’s Turn to Cry’.
    I sincerely hope the Dubya didn’t hear that song….if he’s capable of torture for those abroad, Goddess help us what he plans for us at home….:P
    BTW…great blog, and nice to see that you have finally enabled comments. Just do your usual job of busting trolls’ grills and kicking their asses, and they shouldn’t bother you here. Just show some mercy for the rest of us.
    🙂
