The Lyrics

Cynthia McKinney is the presumptive Green Party nominee for 2008.
Her district was majority-minority
But the court struck it down in '93 *
She thought this just wasn't fair
She left the Dems, joined the Greens, she's playing no more games
She makes the Reverend Jerry Wright look tame
Angry white boys beware

She said Al Gore's "Negro Tolerance
Level" isn't very high
Was she calling him a racist?
Party unity, my eye...

You can say she's only helping McCain (she won't listen)
You can tell her that no one knows her name (she won't listen)
You can tell her anything in the world that you want, she won't care
She won't
McKinney's gonna run

Got stopped by a security guard
She hit him in the chest with a cell phone...hard
Sent him off to the doc
He got more stitches than Frankenstein, he won't be smiling
She said he was guilty of racial profiling
That's why she lashed out and socked (lashed out and socked him)

Well you can tell her she's a spoiler
You can say she'll never win
She'll just think that what you're saying is more major-party spin

You can say that her campaign is a game (she won't listen)
You can say no one remembers her name (she won't listen)
You can say she's only stabbing Barack in the back, she won't care
She won't
McKinney's gonna run

You can tell her that she oughta drop out (she won't listen)
You can scream and yell and ramble and pout (she won't listen)
You can tell her how you feel 'til you're blue in the face, she won't care
She won't
McKinney's gonna run
You can't stop her, she'll run
Sit back and watch her run
Should be sung in a whiny, faux-angry, pop-punk, Pierre Bouvier voice. * This actually happened in 1995, but I had to take "poetic license" to make it rhyme...

Well done, Hu. I have to give Ms. McKinney some credit for being a fellow Trojan; but, while she might make the campaign a little more interesting, she will take fewer votes away from Obama than Libertarian Barr will take from McCain.
