The Lyrics

I read the news today and boiled
About a gov'nor man who'd just been paid
By guys to implements their plans.
Again, he's taking graft
But wasn't photographed.
He drives a Hummer, not a car;
He hasn't noticed that gas prices changed.
Now loud crowds of folks come to where
He does appear before
Those who hoard their cash and use it pay him
And then keep score.

I've seen his films, pre-governor.
He wasn't bad as a comic actor.
Now crowds of voters turn away--
They've had a second look. . .
Seen he juggles books.
I'd love to turn him out.

Woke up, newspapers read,
Dragged down by what stories said.
How'd this clown get there, from a made-up
World where out pump fantasies by the spate?

Keeps a tote bag for some cash,
But most of it's cached and stashed.

Illegal Cuban cigars he tokes,
But most of his smoke comes out in the form of screens.

I read the news today and boiled:
Four billion overrun on Bay Bridge scheme.
He holds up funds and work stalls; oh,
Meanwhile, traffic crawls, slow
How many holes does this guy have in his head,
Or 's it hollow?

I'd love to turn him out.

After reading all of your theme-based songs today, John, I gotta ask....How do you REALLY feel about the governator? I suspected,when he was elected, that the poor people of California had no idea what was in store. I don't follow politics, and I think my Dubya parody today was my first ever about a politician, but you have done a great job of keeping me up to date on Arnolds transgressions. P.S. .... do you EVER sleep? lol Not that I'm complaining, mind you. You're by far the most under-appreciated author here, I think. Keep rollin' 'em out. You'll pass everyone else to the top like they're standing still.

Hey Arnold! You're a (expletive deleted) moron who doesn't have the slightest clue as to what he's doing! Oh, did I offend you? Well, come and get me, you big (expletive deleted)!
