That easy-going man of blood 
Mucking out in the McLennan county mud 
If you're hoping he won't well of course then he must 
Driving his truck through the McLennan county dust 

I read in my book on Sunday afternoon 
So it's easy to think the end's coming soon 
But though sometimes the signs from heaven are vague 
Early November we got back the plague 

While beautiful Laura's sweeping the porch 
He's teleconferencing up his operation torch 
And I don't care if he bombs Babylon to hell 
Except for he's building Babylon here as well 

Waking up in Cedar Rapids asking for allies 
Praising his leeches and looking for likewise 
Down in St. Charles local talent he hawks 
Smirking and sowing the winds as he talks 

In Northern Virginia on their excursions 
L.U.V. in with all their diversions 
Horns for hounds and spurs for horses 
Release the committed 72-hour task forces 

Bentonville and Dallas with gasoline douse 
Then back to Crawford going over to the firehouse 
Behind the curtains not turning much of a trick 
Sicking ourselves to make ourselves sick 

That easy-going man of blood 
Mucking out in the McLennan county mud 
If you're hoping he won't well of course then he must 
Digging us down under the McLennan county dust
