The Lyrics

Inside the mind of a President...
Ride my big black car
Driver put it in park
Air Force One flies over
Maybe we can play Darts
Europeans, they hate me
Especially the French
All my idiot answers
Let's stay the course and just dance!

Tony Blair I think is friendly, is friendly, is friendly
Approval points get better, get better, get better
Dick Cheney thinks I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready
My sentence structures' better, much better, much better
(Much better for who?)

Love those pretty white brick buildings
All in Washington D.C.
The birds in the trees
Not thinking now
I am the W
I'm gonna go pretty far
I am the W
I'm the Nu-cu-ler Star
I am the W
Ready, aim, fire!
I am the W
Ready, aim, fire!
I am the W
Is it truth, or is it lies?
I am the W
Ready, aim, fire
I am the W
I ride the President's Car
I am the W
Ready, aim, fire

Send our troops to Iraq
And teach all of them the Bible
Keep the job rate in traction
And I will ride a neat Hummer
See a dead guy's mother
And do a little dance
Meet Katie Couric on Dateline
And send tax bracket grants
Tony Blair I think is friendly, is friendly, is friendly
Approval points get better, get better, get better
Dick Cheney thinks I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready
My sentence structures' better, much better, much better

All of the neat white buildings
I remember old Ed Meese
How our palms got greased
Not thinking now
I am the W
I will get pretty far
I am the W
Ready, aim, fire!
I am the W
A Nu-cu-ler Star
I am the W
Ready, aim, fire
I am the W
Maybe a Nobel Peace Prize?
I am the W
Ready, aim, fire
I am the W
Meet Laura at the bar
I am the W
Ready, aim, fire
We got Saddam today
I'm the Big Cheese today
Ready, aim, fire
I am the W
(etc. fade)

DKTOS, bummer - I like David Bowie, and this parody looks like it's probably tightly-paced, along with being slickly sharp-toothed. Good read....hey folks who know more David Bowie than I do.....come over here and check this one out!

Thanks for the 5s, anonymous voter! :)

Meets the pace of the original, has enough sense on it's own and it's helluva funny. Great work... specially on "Ready, aim, fire!" XD

(ABC) Very good! 5's

(ABCs) Smooth. DKTOS and can only relate to the behaviour of paying-out 'the W' over knowing what events you were satirising. Is Laura his daughter? I'll leave my dunderhead Aussie baggage at the door and go 5-4-5.

abc -- so THAT's what's going through his mind, I've often wondered! (hee hee)

DKTOS, and I'm not very political, so I'm not much good here. Sorry, Agri.

DKTOS (my David Bowie knowledge is woefully inadequate) but I enjoyed the non sequiturs in your Presidential stream of consciousness. "All of the neat white buildings." Heh heh.
Rick D - August 08, 2004 - Report this comment
A little too political and dark for me.
Melhi - August 08, 2004 - Report this comment
(SOTM) I really like the stream of conciousness approach. It's a really nice job!
Johnny D - August 09, 2004 - Report this comment
(SOTM) See above...still impressed.

What Spaff said. Also - "Meet Laura at the bar." Heh heh.

JSOTM: "Nu-cu-ler Star" is a perfect match for "New Killer Star." I'm really tired of GWB in general so this doesn't do it for me the way a lot of your other parodies have. But it's very well done, as usual!

(JANSOTM) Pacing's really good.

The sample and lyrics really helped; I'd never heard this song. Anyway, clever stuff Maynard.

After some more trying, I still can't find the original. Still not very political either, but I can still appreciate a line like "A Nu-cu-ler Star"

The original song was already about Bush, and the title "New Killer Star" was meant to be a parody of how he pronounced "nuclear," so this isn't really that clever.
