This song is performed by David Rovics and appears on the album Songs For Mahmud (2004).
The president came to London
And was greeted by the queen
And for the people of the city
It was a festive scene
Hundreds of thousands of women and men
Were all in the street
Shouting and dancing and talking
And marching on their feet
But the highest peak of the evening
To be only fair
Was when the statue of George Bush was toppled
In Trafalgar Square

Those days in London
It was the place to be
Young and old, black and white
It was the face of society
Even the mayor came out
And called him a criminal of war
Said world domination
Ain't worth fighting for
They said we don't like Dubya
Or his poodle, Tony Blair
On the day the statue of George Bush was toppled
In Trafalgar Square

The night sky was lit up
And the message it was clear
We do not want fascism
Over there or over here
It was heard first-hand by many
Right there on British soil
We will not fight for Exxon
We won't kill or die for oil
But for billions around the planet
We were all right there
When the statue of George Bush was toppled
In Trafalgar Square
