Ovesen As performed live on Comedy Central Note 1: When doing the C-C/B-Am thing ("awe-some-van"), the C and C/B are each struck just once.

G Am I'd make the world safer for our great land F G C by bombing all others to mush. F G C Then we'd never worry 'bout having no oil F G C to fuel our big cars that save us from such toil. F G C C/B Am And I would get a big red button to push, F G C 'cause I would be President Bush.
