Just got struck by the lyrics of this catchy little song by Marco Borsato. It's one of those older, lesser-known ones that I had on CD and never really listened to until the iPod chanced across it today. But still, tell me this stanza isn't relevant today!

Dreigend langzaam wordt de atmosfeer een beetje warmer
De rijken worden rijker en de armen worden alsmaar armer
We blijven investeren in vernietigende wapens
Het gaat nog altijd prima met de oorlogsindustrie

Zeg mij maar wie wie wie wie wie heeft het gedaan
En wijs nou niet direct een ander als de schuldige aan
Zeg mij maar wie wie wie wie wie heeft het gedaan
Heeft er iemand nog het recht om vrijuit te gaan? Nee!

De kabouters en de paashaas zij hebben een alibi
Repelsteeltje en de kerstman zij waren het zeker niet...

Or, in English...

The atmosphere keeps threateningly warming up
The rich get richer and the poor get poorer
We keep on investing in destructive weapons
The war industry is always doing fine

Tell me who who who who who did this
Don't point right at someone else as the guilty one
Tell me who who who who who did this
Does anyone still have free rights? No!

The dwarves and the Easter bunny - they have an alibi
Rumplestiltskin and Santa Klaus - they didn't do it...


I'll tell you who "did it"... GEORGE W. BUSH!!! And in six days we're going to OUTSOURCE HIM... right out of the White House!!!
