See B.S. On CBS

We stand in line all day to see 'em
Subscriptions all we pay
At the Smithsonian Museum
Monica's dress is on display

We were carpet-bombing Serbia
Leaving stains we can't get out
Hid the linen in the laundry
Forsook the rebel roustabouts

Illegals scrub the glass case
Where the Constitution's stored
Paid under the table
On which the documents were forged

The Father of Our Country
On the U.S.S. Pontoon
Is down on Stockton Boulevard
Consorting with the moon

Draw a line for Hillary
And one for Little Georgie
Draw lines for escort service girls
Escargot, champagne, and orgy

Illegals scrub the glass case
Where the Constitution's stored
Paid under the table
On which the documents were forged

Driven from their stately huts
Each day, four thousand refugees
Sleep on the ground and starve to death
In eastern Chad, the Sudanese

While the tabloids tell of Britney
Of Prince Philip and of Drew
We're all excited for a glimpse
Of Presidential goo

Illegals scrub the glass case
Where the Constitution's stored
Paid under the table
On which the documents were forged

While in Chicago, sixty-eight
We learned what protest signs are worth
If everybody lived my life
There would be peace on Earth

If everybody lived my life
There would be peace on Earth
