The Lyrics

This song is a sidetrack from my goal of parodying Billy Joel, but I just got an inspiration.....
When voting, yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who votes for Bush, it's true
Cuz I'll go shout yeah I know I'm gonna shout
I'm gonna go shout loud if Gore, we're stuck with you

Cuz he acts drunk and he thinks he's gonna be
He's gonna be the drunk who makes our laws go through
Do us a favor yeah I really hope you'll see
We don't want a man who's college IQ was 2

But they'd recount thousands of votes
And they'd recount some thousands more
Just to prove to you that you lost the first time
And shut up dumb Al Gore

When Gore's working yes you know he's gonna be
He's gonna be the man who works for himself, not you
And when the money comes in to him for his work
He'll spend much every penny shining his shoe

When he's talking yeah you know he's gonna be
He's gonna be the man who talks like his mouth's got glue
And when he declares war, you know he's gonna be
He's gonna be the man who's dying in Peru

He'll get lonely yes I know he'll get lonely, cuz
He's the man who's only friends are at the zoo
When he's dreaming yes you know he's gonna dream
About the time he failed Red, white and Blue

But they'd recount thousands of votes
And they'd recount some thousands more
Just to prove to you that you lost the first time
And shut up dumb Al Gore

Very clever! I can picture The Proclaimers singing this.

The pacing was excellent on this, but I didn't like the content, because it seems to support bush, who I detest.
