Bush the Fortunate Son

In a White House in Washington,
There lives a Fortunate Son.
And he'll be the death of many a poor boy,
Before his reign is done.

Mother was a psycho bitch,
Who let him have no joy.
His father was the president,
And he ignored the boy.

Now, the only thing that Dubya wants,
Is some cocaine in a trunk,
Pour some whiskey for the president,
Because he's still a drunk.

Oh, mothers, tell your children,
Just avoid that Fortunate Son.
Stay away from war and misery,
Until his term is done.

Well, I got one foot on the tarmac,
The other on the plane,
I'm goin' back to old Iraq,
To die or go insane.

There is a man in Washington,
They call the Fortunate Son.
And he'll be the death of many a poor boy,
And god I know I'm one.
