Regime change under a Bush doctrine
Of democratic installations
Constant war for constant soldiers
What are we going to do now?
De-escalation, through military force
Increase the pressure, oh Condoleeza
What should we do about the situation
In Iran and North Korea?

Condoleeza

Democratic election under Marshall law
An Iraqi president out of control of our choices
After all this death and destruction
Do you really think your actions advocate freedom?
The presidents giving a speech in Georgetown
To remember the voice of a slain civil rights leader
Do you understand what the martyrs stood for?
Oh, Condoleeza, do you get the fucking joke?

Condoleeza
Condoleeza
Condoleeza
What are we going to do now?
Condoleeza
Condoleeza
Condoleeza
What are we going to do now?

    General Comment"democratic election under marshall law
    an Iraqi president
    out of control on choices" -- the Iraqi election because of the war in Iraq (yes, some people wouldn't pick up on that)

    "after all this death and destruction
    do you really think your actions
    advocate freedom?" -- questioning the war, beautiful i might add (the lyric, not the war)

    "the presidents giving
    a speech in georgetown
    to remember the voice
    of a slain civil rights leader
    do you understand what
    the martyrs stood for
    oh condoleeza
    do you get the fucking joke? NO" -- The president is remembering a slain civil rights leader yet he won't fight for gay marriage, or for all intents and purposes, gay rights, so he obviously DOESN'T understand what the martyr stood for. Condoleezza doesn't get it either, and that's the joke. The thing is this song isn't supposed to be funny, I don't think. It's an extremely serious topic, and yes they're making fun of Condoleezza, but it's not really funny at the same time. Great song.

    General CommentThe "fucking joke" refers to how civil rights leaders like Dr. King (the martyrs) stood for nonviolence, yet Condoleezza Rice is advocating the violence in the Midddle East.

    Also, Its spelled C O N D O L E E Z Z A. two E's and two Z's

    General CommentWow, this song is about Condi? I never thought of it like that. Ha, this song is hilarious. It's about time someone makes fun of a black republican. "Don't you get the fucking joke!?"

    General CommentThis song is pretty straightforward, and I hope someday Condoleeza Rice hears it.
