The Lyrics

They made up their minds, and they started counting
The votes before the polls had closed that day
And when we went to bed we thought Gore had it,
But why were the numbers they gave us so wrong anyway?

At midnight they said that they were mistaken;
They said that that Bush had won it after all.
But just two hours later they retracted,
And all the reporters declared it was "too close to call."

They changed all their maps, made Florida blue now,
Which meant that Bush was back on top once more.
But just two hours later things were changing,
'Cause all the reporters said Florida's going to Gore.

Everybody knows that Governor Bush has already won
But the manual recounts are still going on.
And Gore won't give up,
'Cause he cannot accept defeat.

You know their votes were meant for Gore but they went to Buchanan instead
Since they can't read the ballots they punched the wrong chad.
Now the state supreme court says
Without them it's incomplete.

"It's too close to call," said all the reporters
It seemed the count might go the other way.
As votes came in Gore's lead kept getting shorter
So he went to the courts, 'cause he still had some cards left to play.

When the numbers were in, he wouldn't concede it.
He made three counties count their votes again.
They included all the bad, rejected ballots,
But even with that, Al Gore still couldn't manage to win.

Everybody knows that Governor Bush has already won
But the manual recounts are still going on.
'Cause Gore wouldn't give up,
He couldn't believe he'd lost.

You know their votes were meant for Gore but they went to Buchanan instead
Since they can't read the ballots they punched the wrong chad.
Now the state supreme court says
Without them it's incomplete.
