Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Based on an idea by Bob Gomez... and a much worse idea by Dick Cheney (punishing Joe Wilson by "outing" his wife, Valerie Plame).
Chain, chain, chain...
(chain, chain, chain)
chain, chain, chain...
(chain, chain, chain)
chain, chain, chain...
(chain, chain)
Cheney's fool!

For five long years
Scooter was the Veep's man.
But we found out
he belongs now in chains.
Oh, we got him where we want him!
His idea was for fools.
Treated Joe Wilson mean.
To Valerie he was cruel.

Chain, chain, chain...
(chain, chain, chain)
Cheney's fool!

Libby in chains
might drive Dick to drink!
The reasons for goin' to war
they're all losin' their strength!
Oh, babe.

(Woo! Woo! Woo! Woo!)
Shoulda left the Wilsons alone.
(Woo! Woo! Woo! Woo!)
Doncha hurt their happy home.
(Woo! Woo! Woo! Woo!)
Spin doctors say "Take it easy!"
(Woo! Woo! Woo! Woo!)
Oh, but your lyin' is just too strong.
Now we're on to you!

Chain, chain, chain...
(chain, chain, chain)
chain, chain, chain...
(chain, chain, chain)
chain, chain, chain...
(chain, chain, chain, chain)
Cheney's fool!

Well, last Friday morning
the chains were on you!
Who will you tattle on
to avoid an orange jumpsuit?
Oh, babe!

Chain, chain, chain...
(chain, chain, chain)
chain, chain, chain...
(chain, chain, chain)
chain, chain, chain...
(chain, chain, chain, chain)
Cheney's fool!

Chain, chain, chain...
(chain, chain, chain)
chain, chain, chain...
(chain, chain, chain)
chain, chain, chain...
(chain, chain)
Cheney's fool!
(repeat 'til fade)

I won't post an article, but I'll paraphrase a snippet from Tina Fey on SNL: "Having the name Scooter in prison. . .priceless!" Nice job, Michael.

For clarity's sake, the comment about brownnosing Rush Limbaugh was directed at the poster of the deleted article.
