"Cheney's Toy" as written by and James Mcmurtry....
Another unknown soldier
Another lesson learned
Kicked the gas can over
Strike a match, sit back and watch that sucker burn

Keep smiling for the camera
Keep waving to the crowd
Don't let up for an instance
Stay the course and make your mama proud

You're the man
Show them what you're made of
You're no longer daddies boy
You're the man, they're all afraid of
But you're only Cheney's toy

Another unknown soldier
We seen it all before
All in the name of Jesus
Behind the razor wire and shackled to the floor

Just keep smiling at the camera
Keep that twinkle in your eye
We don't need to know the answers
Long as we safe, hit your marks and say your lines

You're the man
Show them what you're made of
You're no longer daddies boy
Take a stand
Give them what you paid for
Because you are only Cheney's toy

He'll take a fork and turn you over
While the fat lady sings
One more Pen on, one more shoulders
All the future brings


For another unknown soldier
Who don't know his own name
And he won't get any older
And he can't see for the shrapnel in his brain


You're the man
Show them what you're made of
You're no longer daddies boy
Take a stand
Give them what you paid for
Because you are only Cheney's toy

You're the man
Show them what you're made of
You're no longer daddies boy
Makes you grin
When the guns are blazing
Bring them home
Cheney's toy

Makes you grin
When the guns are blazing
Bring them home
Cheney's toy

Bring them home
Cheney's toy [Repeat: x 2]
