The Ballad of Cheney Todd


ARI FLEISCHER

Attend the tale of Cheney Todd
A rotten eggplant was his bod
He served the forces of greed and death
Denying and lying with every breath
His toothpick was a cattle prod
For Cheney Todd
The Schemin' Veeper of D.C.

He lived but to make corporate rain
From Baghdad to Lake Pontchartrain
He served the int'rests of C.E.O.'s
Ignoring the public or thumbing the nose
Of Cheney
Of Cheney Todd
The Schemin' Veeper of D.C.


COMPANY

Wage war far and wide, Cheney
See stock options rise
Freely flows the blood of those you
Mobilize.

He hid away when indisposed
In dank locations undisclosed
A mask of guile upon his face
In place of a heart, a Maker of Pace
A myocardial infarction god
Was Cheney Todd
The Schemin' Veeper of D.C.

Faithful servant that Cheney was
Halliburton's true swain, he was.
Cheney would plan
Proddin' and shooin'
Iraq and Iran
Into rack and ruin.

Bent on vengeance our Cheney was
Keen to cause Wilson pain he was.
Cheney heard "Plame"
Cheney told Scooter,
Broadcast her name
Let Al-Qaeda shoot her.
Bent on vengeance our Cheney was
Keen to cause Wilson pain he was.
Cheney heard "Plame"
Cheney told Scooter,
Broadcast her name
Let Al-Qaeda shoot her.
Cheney Cheney Cheney Cheney
