Viva La Dubya

I used to rule the world...

Seas would rise when I gave the word

U.S. President George W. Bush (C), flanked by Franciscan priests, overlooks the Sea of Galilee, in the ancient village of Capernaum, January 11 2008. Sending a symbolic message to Israeli and Palestinian leaders, U.S. President George W. Bush visited on Friday the site where Jesus is believed to have intoned "blessed are the peacemakers".

Now in the morning I sleep alone...


Sweep the streets I used to own.

I used to roll the dice,
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes

Listen as the crowd would sing,
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"

One minute I held the key...

Next the walls were closed on me,

And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand.

It was the wicked and wild wind...

Blew down the doors to let me in

Shattered windows and the sound of drums...

People couldn't believe what I'd become.

Revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate

Just a puppet on a lonely string...

Oh who would ever want to be king?

All you have to do is get a cheap video editor on your computer and make the music video/slideshow yourself. (youll probably need more pictures though). Then post it or a link on Kos and direct back to your blog and youll have a million viewers. Youtube, etc...
Do it before someone steals this idea too.
