When the statue in the anti-war/anti-Bush protests in London, November, 2003 was toppled, it was a beautiful sight. And more authentically popular than the toppling of that statue in Baghdad, I might add.

Lyrics
Trafalgar Square David Rovics The president came to London And was greeted by the queen And for the people of the city It was a festive scene Hundreds of thousands of women and men Were all in the street Shouting and dancing and talking And marching on their feet But the highest peak of the evening To be only fair Was when the statue of George Bush was toppled In Trafalgar Square Those days in London It was the place to be Young and old, black and white It was the face of society Even the mayor came out And called him a criminal of war Said world domination Ain’t worth fighting for They said we don’t like Dubya Or his poodle, Tony Blair On the day the statue of George Bush was toppled In Trafalgar Square The night sky was lit up And the message it was clear We do not want fascism Over there or over here It was heard first-hand by many Right there on British soil We will not fight for Exxon We won’t kill or die for oil But for billions around the planet We were all right there When the statue of George Bush was toppled In Trafalgar Square Created November, 2003 Copyright David Rovics 2003, all rights reserved
