lyrics

His dad was Prescott Bush, the U.S. Senator
Did well as a Navy pilot in World War 2
Went to Yale then got rich in the oil business
Then Congressman where he made lots of friends
UN Ambassador, chairman of the RNC
Ambassador to China, and CIA Chief

Persian Gulf War, recession, raised taxes
Even though he promised he would not
Public service seemed to be his purpose
George Herbert Walker Bush woah

Vice President to Reagan, took over after him
Came off as preppy and, well, maybe out of touch
The Berlin Wall fell and the Cold War came to an end
He signed lots of bills to help the environment
Launched Operation Just Cause, saved Kuwait from Iraq

Persian Gulf War, recession, raised taxes
Even though he promised he would not
Public service seemed to be his purpose
George Herbert Walker Bush woah

Growing national debt, rising unemployment
Also Ross Perot prevented re-election
Public service continued after retirement
And two of his sons followed him into politics

Persian Gulf War, recession, raised taxes
Even though he promised he would not
Public service seemed to be his purpose
George Herbert Walker Bush woah
