The Lyrics

I finally got to write my editorial on the Presidential Election of 2000. This is political fodder for your ears. The story of Al, Walker, Kathy, Hillary, Jessie and all the rest is set to the melody of "Mack the Knife" in this parody. By the way, this is not the Rush Limbaugh theme song, but it could be!!
It was a fight babe, For the Sunshine ( Florida )
Back and forth, All through the night ( Election night Tues )
And when the sun broke, On Wednesday mornin'
There was no winner, In our sight
We lived on sound bytes, With no teeth babe
As the lines began to form, Forget the streamers
To save the Party ( Democratic )
On that Southbound flight you better get on board
Cause down in Palm Beach, And Tallahassee
A brothers' love can run so strong ( Jeb Bush )
Al (Gore) knows he cannot Count on Kathy ( Rep Fla Sec Of State Katherine Harris )
He knows that if she can that girl will do him wrong
We need more cameras, Here come the lawyers
This won't be quick they've got a brief in hand
Is there a case here, You be the judge dear
They're gonna take it to the highest in the land ( US Supreme Court )
Chad is expecting ( pregnant chads )
Walker is stalling ( George Walker Bush camp stalls )
Al ( Gore ) baby wants to win will all his heart and soul
Take my opinion on the Rehnquist story ( US Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist )
Oh babe to make it count you've got to find the hole
Hillary Rodham, Yeah Jessie Jackson
Look out now Billy B. ( Bill Bradley ), That ship is going down
Cause the line forms to the right babe ( Republicans = right, Democrats = left )
With the Bush's back in town
Billy Bradley, Yeah Jessie Jackson
Look out now Hillary, That ship is going down
Cause the line forms to the right babe
With the Bush's back in town
Look out those Bush's are back !!!

Very well said! Except you should have improved the readability by putting it in stanzas (i.e., blank lines between lines). But I vote all fives anyway.
