My Last Song For Dick Cheney



Oh, Dick, I Am Mad At You
Lyrics by mjs
Music in My Head from an indeterminate source

Mr. Dick Cheney
is the man with plenty
a whole lot meaner than Shrek

An actor with great skill
he goes in for the kill
and everybody else runs like heck

A true puppet master
pulls the strings of disaster
like some nasty Klingon from Star Trek

He lies through his nose
he's the first with last throes
if he shows his gun you best hit the deck

(chorus)
Oh, Dick, I am mad at you
I am mad at you and all that you do
Oh, Dick, I have had all of it
I've had enough of Dick, it is true
It's true
Too much Dick has made me blue

The Prez is his flunky
a dry-drunk monkey
a smarmy ass bully unhinged

He came to power
when the voting went sour
when they claimed his rights were impinged

He went to the West Wing
thinking he was the new king
but it was Cheney who was feeling a twinge

All his friends made money
when the Shia fought the Sunnis
he burns the world but never gets singed

(chorus)
Oh, Dick, I am mad at you
I am mad at you and all that you do
Oh, Dick, I have had all of it
I've had enough of Dick, it is true
It's true
Too much Dick has made me blue

The billionaire's billionaire
a certain kind of savoir faire
this dude knows what power is for

Making money hand over fist
he's just like Oliver Twist
he ain't shy about asking for more

The pairing that he forged
wasn't him and that fool George
it was Dick and Rummy to the core

And when the world is destroyed
it's because boys will be boys
and there's a whole lot of money in war

(chorus)
Oh, Dick, I am mad at you
I am mad at you and all that you do
Oh, Dick, I have had all of it
I've had enough of Dick, it is true
It's true
Too much Dick has made me blue

Mr. Dick Cheney
is the man with plenty
a whole lot meaner than Shrek

An actor with great skill
he goes in for the kill
and everybody else runs like heck

A true puppet master
pulls the strings of disaster
like some nasty Klingon from Star Trek

He lies through his nose
he's the first with last throes
if he shows his gun you best hit the deck

(chorus)
Oh, Dick, I am mad at you
I am mad at you and all that you do
Oh, Dick, I have had all of it
I've had enough of Dick, it is true
It's true
Too much Dick has made me blue

"Too much Dick has made me blue"

There's your hook, right there.

As I read this song, I could hear, not so far off in the distance, the metallic click-click of sequined dancers in non-tap shoes, arranging themselves in a Busby Burkely(sp?) orgy of feathers and feet and glistening girls, which Peter Boyle leading the white-tie male chorus line...

And then I started having flashbacks to the grande finale of "Jackass Number Two" and one wall of the stage set fell on the shortest girls, down at the bottom of the twirling cyclical pyramid. Typical Busby shoot, eh?

Nonetheless, it was a pleasant, albeit brief, cartoon that you wrought upon my mind.
