Programme Notes

What’s brighter – a Shrub or a Dub?

That’s a very good question that I’m not sure I know the answer to. What I do know is that George W. Bush was probably one of the worst world leaders of the past 100 years. What I can’t come to a conclusion on though is whether or not he’s a cunning warmonger or just a gullible, bumbling figurehead.

This electronic composition tends to explore the latter. But the composition doesn’t just provide samples from his “highlights” in speech delivery, but also showcases some of his many moments of hypocrisy.

Despite the quirky, comedic nature of this piece, please don’t mistake my feeling that I think Bush is a war criminal and should be brought to trial for crimes against humanity. In the meantime, we wait and dance.

Lyrics

by George W. Bush

America has never been united by blood or birth or soil.

Americans in need are not strangers.

Americans live on the sunrise side of the mountain.

An angel still rides in the whirlwind and directs this storm.

Always see the tunnel at the end of the light.

All had committed grown-up crimes.

And to leave the air and waters clean.

Must remember the lessons of Vietnam.

Our country is ready for high standards.
