To Washington Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Eight years of peace and prosperity
Scandal in the White House
An election is what we need
From coast-to-coast to Washington

So America voted on a president
No one kept count
On how the election went
From Florida to Washington

"Goddamn," said one side
And the other said the same
Both looked pretty guilty
But no one took the blame
From coast-to-coast to Washington

So a new man in the White House
With a familiar name
Said he had some fresh ideas
But it's worse now since he came
From Texas to Washington

And he wants to fight with many
And he says, "It's not for oil"
He sent out the National Guard
To police the world
From Baghdad to Washington

What is the thought process
To take a human's life?
What would be the reason
To think that this is right?
From Heaven to Washington
From Jesus Christ to Washington
