My entry for Song Fu 6, round 2; the challenge was to write song that does not rhyme.

lyrics

Dick Cheney is a loving husband (war criminal)
The government is on your side
Dick Cheney is a wonderful dad (war criminal)
Washington is your best friend
Dick Cheney is a man of his word (war criminal)
And you're good looking and oh so well informed

CHORUS:

Dick Cheney, Dick Cheney
Shot his friend right in the face
Dick Cheney, Dick Cheney
Bloody hands and a rotting heart
Dick Cheney, Dick Cheney
Your next undisclosed location will be in hell

Dick Cheney is a loving husband (war criminal)
The terrorists just hate our freedoms
Dick Cheney is a wonderful dad (war criminal)
Abu Ghraib was just a few bad apples
Dick Cheney is a man of his word (war criminal)
The Founding Fathers would surely have agreed

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE

Waterboarding is harmless
And Guantanamo is a playground
The Geneva Conventions
Simply don't apply
Extraordinary Rendition
Is a tropical vacation
Cheney's a man of convictions
So let's give him a few more
This song is filled with beautiful rhymes
And you can't fool all the people... every goddamn day

SOLO

Dick Cheney is a loving husband (war criminal)
America can do no wrong
Dick Cheney is a wonderful dad (war criminal)
Jesus Christ approves of torture
Dick Cheney is a man of his word (war criminal)
And there will never be a Dick like him

REPEAT CHORUS
