Bush says world wide protests
Won't change his approach to Iraq
Well, what a surprise
I thought he listened to the people of the world

I thought he woke up every day and
Asked his secretary
What are folks protesting
Who should we be listening to besides ourselves

There are people, maybe even you
Who think opinion polls equals democracy
'Round here the grownups talk of should or should we not
Meanwhile the kids, they know we're going to war

Tyranny
Oh, it comes in many shapes and sizes
Tyranny
But when it comes, it comes with no surprises

People will tell you that everything worth doing
Is in the past, already has been done
Maybe I never studied hard enough in science
But my chances to go back in time are none

Where is my wandering nation tonight?
Well, I'm sitting on top of this flagpole
How crazy am I? Crazy enough to sit here
Until all the bombs are used or sold or stolen

The news London and the news from Marrakesh
And the news from Palestine and Islamabad
And the news from Baghdad and the news from New York City
It's the same news all the world over

Tyranny
Oh, it comes in many shapes and sizes
Tyranny
But when it comes, it comes with no surprises
But when it comes, it comes with no surprises
But when it comes, it comes with no surprises
