The Lyrics

A bad year comes to a close. Even Our Fearless Appointed Wartime Leader With a Purpose thought this was a bad year. For him, it could get worse in 2006.
Woo-hoo-hoo!
Woo-hoo-hoo!

Heads beat against the wall.
Still pains me to recall.
Way back in the day
bad times for U.S.A.
Our dreams went out the door
November of oh-four
were still stuck with that man.
What happened to our plan?

He was gonna be a fascist.
He was gonna win a war.
We were gonna kick his ass.
None of that got too far.
He made the G.O.P.
our nation's enemy.
How did we beat that life?
Back then we had such strife
like...

Dick Cheney! Katrina!
Weather getting meaner!
There was Kanye and Ashlee!
More music that was ghastly!
My two kids in high school
they know that Bush was such a fool!
How the hell did we survive
back in 2
back in 2
back in 2005?

Woo-hoo-hoo!
Back in 2005!
Woo-hoo-hoo!

We went through the scandals.
We knew every lie.
Karl and Scooter, Joe Wilson
even the Schaivo try.
It was a rockin' day
when they got Tom DeLay.
John Legend sang so fine
unlike Sean Preston Federline.

Where's the baggy jeans a foot past shoes?
How did we get over our baseball steroid blues?
When did Pussycats become such Dolls?
And Desperate Housewives become gangster molls?
With...

Dick Cheney! Katrina!
Weather getting meaner!
There was Kanye and Ashlee!
More music that was ghastly!
My two kids in high school
they know that Bush was such a fool!
How the hell did we survive
back in 2
back in 2
back in 2005!

Woo-hoo-hoo!

Music had so little tact.
When did Nickelback become a Vegas act?
I'll ask President Donovan McNabb.
Thanks to him
we don't have to re-grab...

Dick Cheney! Katrina!
Weather getting meaner!
There was Kanye and Ashlee!
More music that was ghastly!
My two kids in high school
they know that Bush was such a fool!
How the hell did we survive
back in 2
back in 2
back in 2005?

Woo-hoo-hoo!

Dick Cheney! Katrina!
Weather getting meaner!
There was Kanye and Ashlee!
More music getting ghastly!
My two kids in high school
they know that Bush was such a fool!
How the hell did we survive
back in 2
back in 2
back in 2005?

Woo-hoo-hoo!

Back in 2005!
Should Bush malfeasance be forgot? Never!

I SOOO hate your politics, but I love your parodies! :D (btw, If my Beach Boys Endless Summer album cover makes the cut you'll enjoy it. ) Politics aside, cute idea and timely for the new year. " You're on the losing side but . . . here's a . . . here's a . . . here's a bunch of fives."

I think the refrain would work better if you just said Cheney instead of his full name.

Thank you, everyone. Pooch: Saw the cover, liked it, but the Constitution (the 22nd Amendment, anyway) ensures that it will not be endless. (But then, when has the Constitution ever stopped Bush and Cheney? If it did, I wouldn't have had to write this.)

Nice. I still have no clue what's the deal wit Bush, being an Aussie and all. I think that to make the pacing right, Kanye is actually pronounced properly? As in Kan-yay? Good job.

Your so full Republican rage. It's really clouding your judgment. Any absolution is wrong, regardless of how accurate it may seem now. The whole party system is stupid. I liked this, but not enough to give all 5's. I'll figure out something appropriate.

There's been a couple of bad events this year , but I wouldn't say 2005 was the worst year in the 21st century. Still nice pacing , and a good idea. Ironically , I wrote an anti-Bush parody just recently.

it was good but one question how can sean preston federline sing when he's a baby?
Michael Pacholek - February 02, 2006 - Report this comment
Carson: You're not paying attention. Just as the original version of the song looks back at 1985 from 2004 when it was recorded, so, too, this version looks back at 2005 from a POSSIBLE 2025, by which point Sean will probably be proving himself to be an even worse musical performer than his mom... but, hopefully, not as bad as his dad. Nobody could be that bad, not even Robbie Van Winkle (Vanilla Ice).

That was awsome, except for all the swearing, sorta. 0_o Nice parody, though. Better than my Pi song. (Man, I wish I allowed comments on that one!) Awsome... Totally pwnsome.

You Rock (though your political belifes don't)! Way to say that the president in 2025 will be Donovan McNabb. In 2045, we'll be saying about the Eagles winning 30 Super Bowls in the next 35 years
