Bye Bye, Bybee

Bye Bye, Bybee

Jay Bybee is the notorious author of the torture memo that the Bush Administration used to justify harsh treatment of prisoners. Here are new lyrics for the song Bye Bye, Birdie that Ann-Margret sang for the 1963 movie by the same name.

Original lyrics New Lyrics (by Don Smith)
Bye, bye, Birdie
The Army’s got you now
I’ll try, Birdie
To forget some how
Bye, bye, Bybee
Such death and suffering!
You’re sly, Bybee
You evil torture king!
No more sighing
Each time you move those lips
No more dying
When you twich those hips
No more crying
Each time they waterboard.
No more dying
When torture goes too far.
Your swivel and your sway
Your super-duper class
There’s nothing left to say
But Conrad, you’re a gas
From Abu-grahib
To Guantánamo
You left a trail of pain.
Hey Bybee, you’re a shame!
Bye, bye, Birdie
Ta-ta, ol’ sweetie-pie
Bye, bye, Birdie
Time for me to fly
Time for me to fly
Time to say goodbye
Bye now!
Bye bye, Bybee
Ta-ta, you torture king.
Bye bye, Bybee
Time for you to fly
Time for you to fly
Hang your head and cry.
Bye now!
