To "Circle of Life"

(Words by Tim Rice

Music by Elton John)

Parody Lyrics by Marcy Shaffer

Arranged by Greg Hilfman

AH, THE GLORIES!
LIKE OF JESSICA LYNCH.
(WHAT A STAR!)
(STAY THE COURSE.)
YEAH. 
(STAY THE COURSE.)
THEY WERE STORIES!
WHICH ARE A CINCH IN A CLINCH.
(WHAT P.R.!)
WHEN YOU ENDORSE.
(STAY THE COURSE.)
USE THE FORCE.
(STAY THE COURSE.)
SHOW NO REMORSE.
 
IN PRODUCTION, WEAPONS OF DESTRUCTION!
SWEAR TO HEAVEN, THEY DID 9-11!
IN THEIR SECTORS, WON'T ALLOW INSPECTORS!
ONLY HOURS, BULLETS TURN TO FLOWERS!
WE ARE SEEKING THOSE WHO DID THE LEAKING!
THEY PROVIDE A HAVEN TO AL QAEDA!
THERE'S A MISSION, THERE'S A COALITION!
WE'RE NOT FAILING, WE ARE PRE-PREVAILING!
NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND!
 
OH, THE OFFICE IS OVAL AND ROVE-AL.
AND ITS SPHERE IS A CLEAR SECOND-RATE.
SO THE LINE INCESSANT
ABOUT THE FERTILE CRESCENT
CAN'T BE TALKED OR EVEN CAKE-WALKED STRAIGHT.
FROM THE SUNNI TRIANGLE TANGLE.
TO THE PENTAGON'S DANGLE OF BAIT.
IN THE SPIRAL OF VIOLENCE.
IN THE CONE OF SILENCE.
CAN'T ESCAPE, THAT THE SHAPE OF OUR STATE:
 
IS A CIRCLE OF LIES.
AND THEY DRAW IT WELL.
WHAT THEY CAN'T DISGUISE
THEY REVISE TO SELL.
WATCH DECEIT PROGRESS
WHEN THEY MEET THE PRESS.
IN THE CIRCLE,
THE CIRCLE OF LIES.
 
WE DON'T FUDGE IT, WHEN WE DO A BUDGET!
IT IMPRESSES, ALL OF OUR SUCCESSES!
WE ARE HEARING, WHERE'S THE PROFITEERING?!
DIDN'T OUT HER, DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT HER!
THERE'S NO PLAN TO OCCUPY IRAN!
JUST REMEMBER, BACK HOME IN SEPTEMBER!
NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND!
 
THE CIRCLE OF LIES.
AND THEY DRAW IT WELL.
NEVER COMPROMISE.
NEVER, EVER TELL. 
HEAR THE FOUNDERS' CRIES.
AS THEIR CHILD DIES.
IN THE CIRCLE,
THE CIRCLE OF LIES.
