Wonderful World (Don’t Know Why)

It’s hard to argue that George W. Bush doesn’t love war, considering how many opportunites he’s had to end it, and how eager he is to start another one. I imagine him sitting back wondering why the rest of the world doesn’t think he’s right. In fact, I imagine his idea of a wonderful world might be something like this little parody I wrote based on the hit song “Wonderful World (Don’t Know Much)”, by Sam Cooke. I hope you enjoy.

Wonderful World (Don’t Know Why)
Original words and music “Wonderful World (Don’t Know Much)”, by Sam Cooke
Additional lyrics by Wayne A. Schneider, 2007

Don’t know why it’s a mystery
Don’t know why it’s so hard to see
Don’t know why I should read a book
Don’t know why I can’t be a crook

But I do know that I love war
And I know what I could use it for
What a wonderful world this could be

Don’t know why there is diplomacy
Don’t know why they don’t bow to me
Don’t know why I must justify
Don’t know why they all shout and cry

But I do know two and two is five
And I know that if I shuck this jive
What a wonderful world this could be

Now we all know, I’m just a “C” student
Never had a “B”’
But maybe by being a friendly “C” student
I could win support for me

Don’t know why we can’t throw our weight
Don’t know why we can’t prove we’re great
Don’t know why we can’t strike them first
Don’t know why they say I’m the worst

But I do know I can jail them all
And I know that they won’t get a call
What a wonderful world this could be

HEE-HEE-HEE-HEE-HEE-HEE-HEE-HEE (Jail them all)
HO-HO-HO-HO (Not a call)
HEE-HEE-HEE-HEE-HEE-HEE-HEE-HEE (Strike them first)
HO-HO-HO-HO (I’m the worst)

But I do know that I hate peace
And I know that if I make it cease
What a wonderful world this could be
