The Lyrics

It's May, 2007, and global warming is in the air. Here's a musical salute to the guy who helped put it there, and who puts a lot more there every day. This is my second parody--first was a tribute to semiconductor legend/technology visionary Gordon Moore---with this tune as the vehicle. (It's from the shock-exploitation documentary Mondo Cane, by the way, not the most obvious vessel for a hit love song.) The way I see it, if your name is a homophone for "More" (or rhymes with it) then you get this song, whether you are advancing the progress of civilization through a better understanding of science and technology, or trying to set it back 100 years by profoundly, and perhaps even deliberately, misunderstanding them. (The ending of the second chorus---"Take two Thorazine, etc."---is intended as a lounge lizard-y ad lib and fits the Bobby Darin arrangement, but would obviously not scan the original musical notation for the song as it appears in a lead sheet.)
Gore
Is the greatest fraud the world has known
Learned all his methods from Don Corleone

Just like Don Vito treats a snitching punk
Gore whacks the facts and locks 'em in a trunk

Gore travels everywhere
And Gore
Blows so much hot air
With all of his misinforming
He's the source of global warming

Each time you see Big Al on CNN
You'll want to poke your eyes out with a pen

No one has ever been a more
Phony narcissistic bore
Than the tedious Albert Gore

(second chorus)

Gore
Is the greatest fraud the world has known
Though he can fake out Cher and Sharon Stone

Far from exposing inconvenient truth
Truth is Abe Lincoln Gore is John Wilkes Booth

Gore
Travels everywhere
But not on commercial air
You can't be seen with plebeians
When you're hustling Europeans

If you're afraid of man-made CO2
Gore's got a bridge in Brooklyn just for you

Al-we're not listening anymore
Get your meds out of the drawer
Take two Thor-a-zine and don't call us in the morning
Albert Gore

Can't go' with the sentiment, but the parody's very well written.

I agree with John Barry.

Do this for me, Jeff: print out this parody, and put it in a time capsule. Then, when your great-grandchildren dig it up from the scorched earth of what was once our beautiful and verdant planet, they'll know exactly who's fault it was.

C'mon guys, don't you know that when everyone agrees on something, like global warming, they're always wrong. Ask Copernicus. Ask Galileo.

Well done, Jeff.

Gore's also a huge consumer too as far as I know, 555.
