The Lyrics

Hello Red state, Hello Blue state
(A Letter From Camp)
by D.Allman with fond acknowledgment to Allan Sherman
Hello Red state, hello Blue state,
Some feel just fine, some don't feel great.
Some own small caps, some own hi-tech,
One is making all-time highs and one's a train wreck.
Some went voting for John Kerry.
'Bout the future, they did worry.
Others voted for George Dubya.
Claiming he had been anointed from above, yeah.

Stem cell pros hate soccer mothers,
And the rest just hate the others.
We can't seem to find a middle,
Where is Nero now? We need someone to fiddle.

The fear-mongers want to scare ya,
Does Al-Qaeda have malaria?
Is there someone stout and hardy.
With the stones to organize a new third party?

Where's your dough, oh Red state, Blue state?
Where's your dough? Division I hate,
Is it caused by the stock market, where
For some, it's really been a bear?
Where's your dough? Invested in the hot small caps?
Or hi-techs that have taken craps?
Has your wealth slipped away?
What's happened with your 4-0-1-k?

Blue state dearest, Red state honey,
Does it just come down to money?
All your values, would you miss them?
If your broker's brilliance made you want to kiss him?
Wait a minute, who are they hailing?
Not snowboarding, he's not sailing.
Action hero, is that better?
Red state, Blue state, would you go for Schwarzenegger?!

Nice job. We blue staters want a divorce! No need for an annulment as we never believed it was a union under God anyway.

I have (mostly) a red state mentality living in a blue state, but I really enjoyed this parody, particularly the Nero and third party lines. For the line after Kerry, I would have used "'Bout the future, they were wary," which would have rhymed better.

Where is Nero? Crawford, Texas. Where else would he be when there's work to be done? (Camp David.)

This was a really good parody on Hello Muddah! Hello Faddah! I've just GOT to have my parents hear this! I was on the floor!
