A blatantly political track aimed at Tony Blair and John Howard for their kowtowing to George Bush in support of the war in Iraq. This is just a rough home demo

Story behind the song
We are in an election year in Australia in 2007. Whilst George Bush has copped a lot of flak for the war in Iraq, our Prime Minister, John Howard has until now been relatively unscathed. This is a song "dedicated" to him and Tony Blair. If you don't agree with the politics of the song, don't complain, write a song justifying the war.
Lyrics
Tony you're elegant, Tony you're grand You even came up with a new party brand But "The Third Way" turned the turd way You spin and you bore, Now history will judge you just another Bush Whore You foresaw your destiny, you presaged your fate Beside a fuckwith world Sheriff you'd look head of state You thought you were someone the world would adore But look at you now, You're just another Bush Whore You're a whore, you're a whore Tone It's known through the land A bigger whore than the street girl who serviced Hugh Grant You can't substitute ego for the true rule of law Consigned now forever as another Bush Whore And what do we make of our little John Howard Still believes in the 'Nam war Didn't serve but no coward Just put him in a picture with 10 soldiers or more Then he'll sell out the country, the bloody Bush Whore You're a whore, you're a whore, John It's known through the land You say you won't cut and run But you shift in the sand And come next October we'll show you the door No man of steel statesman Just another Bush Whore So now John and Tony, that's how it goes You had some time in the spotlight Now it's the end of the road You gambled your future sending young folks to war Off to history's dustin, you bloody Bush Whores You're a whore, you're a whore Tone It's known through the land A bigger whore than the street girl who serviced Hugh Grant You can't substitute ego for the true rule of law Off to history's dustbin, you bloody Bush Whore You're a whore, you're a whore, John It's known through the land You say you won't cut and run But you shift in the sand And come next October we'll show you the door Off to history's dustbin, you bloody Bush Whore
