What He Does When He Isn't Busy Saving Mitch's Life

Rumor has it that Bruce Springsteen may headline a "Rock For Change II" tour, with proceeds funding uber-liberal candidates in the 2006 mid-term elections. We at NIGP have even acquired the lyrics to the tour's theme song, a remake of "Born to Run" with new words. May I present "Cut and Run":

Our troops slug it out in the middle east 'gainst insurgents and mujahideen
Who drive by Saddam's mansions of glory in suicide machines
The war's a quagmire just like Vietnam
There's no exit strategy
And we know it was based on a lie
The Terrorists strap the bombs to their back
It's a death trap, it's a suicide rap
We gotta get out with our young
Cause wimps like us, maybe ought to cut and run

Frenchie, let me in, I want to be your friend
I support the UN's corrupt vision
We'll get on our knees and we'll give in
And we'll let you make all the decisions
The sanctions, they should not have stopped
The bombs shouldn't have dropped, if only we could take them back
John Kerry's the man we should have hired
'Cause baby I'm scared of this war monger guy
Who doesn't know at all how it feels
Why won't this war mongerin' guy
Why won't he listen to Cindy Sheehan?

By Saddam's palace, shoulder fired rockets scream down the boulevard
Reporters do their hair in the beauty parlors
While the carnage makes Rumsfeld hard
The Sunny triangle is bold and stark
Freedom cannot be worth this
Our boys are dying out there on the streets tonight
And the US deserved this

The VA's jammed with broken hero's from our failed Iraq drive
Meanwhile I'm criticizing their mission
and mocking their sacrifice
In the mid-terms, baby, we can end this sadness
and stop the madness, if we get congress control
Next November, that is when
We will vote in that place
And tell George Bush to go blow
And the war will be done
That is when wimps like us
Baby we'll cut and run!
