Default We Did It Bush's Way...

I know it's hard to retain much sense of humor with the situation of the past two days, but maybe we all need a laugh, so I'll share this.
After I sent a frantic email this morning describing the situation in New Orleans and the gasoline crisis entitled "The End is Near...", a friend replied with this musical parody:

To be sung to the tune of Frank Sinatra's My Way:

And now, the end is near
And so you face my final curtain
My voter, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain
You've lived a lie that's full
Of travail that's on my highway
And more, much more than this, you did it my way

Regrets, you'll have a few
And then again, a few I'll mention
You did what I had you do and do and do. No explanation.
You complained about the course, each careless step along the byway
And still, even with all this, you did it my way

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when you had doubts
I ate you up and spit you out
I stomached it all and I stood tall and did it my way

I've loved, I've laughed at Yale
I've had my fill, my share of boozing
And now, as truth subsides, I find it all so amusing
To think I did all that
And may I say, not in a shy way,
"Oh, yes, oh, yes, oh me, you did it my way"

For what is a Bush, what has he got?
If not you fooled, then he has naught
To say the things his backers feel
To say the words, to do the deals
The record shows you took the blows and did it my way!
