It was inauguration day I nearly froze to death
dude next to me high on crystal meth
watched the president driving down the street
flipping the bird to guys like me

felt like a monkey behind barbed wire
in my democrat attire
it wasn't so easy getting around
I only got one leg on the ground

it was inauguration day
and somebody has to pay
inauguration day

I left the other leg back in Iraq
so I guess they ain't gonna want me back
shrapnel'll make you scream like an old banshee
but I ain't dead so they don't count me

had some soup a day or so ago
so things could be worse don't you know
Laura looking good in her soft white dress
thanks to her President's largesse

it was inauguration day
and somebody has to pay
inauguration day

how many dead can you ignore
why do you answer more more more
can you put a price on me?
or should I give you another one for free?

cops they told me to move along
I said "sir you know damn well the war is wrong"
he looked at me and shook his head
and you know...that was all he said

I might be the tiredest man alive
at the grand old age of 35
went to the ball they wouldn't let me in
said "son don't you know where I've been?"

he said "son...
it's inauguration day
and somebody has to pay
inauguration day"
