The Lyrics

Flip, flop, I'm a manicured mop
Swishin every way but right
Ole Dub was relaxin in the tub
Picked me up and wrung me tight
Well he stepped outta the tub
Started mopping the floor
Dipped me into a bucket
Then he wrung me some more
And then a flip flop
I'm a ragged ole mop
Well I want you to know there was some cleanin' goin on!

He was a moppin and a soppin
Even on the ceilin'
Grinnin' and a groovin'
Rockin' and a movin'
Hey yeah!

Bing Bang, slammed me into the pan
I was flattened out like a rug
Yeah, flip flop I was one dirty mop
Stomped upon me just like a bug
I was crusted with some mucky goo
By Golly Miss Molly, I was under his shoe
Well a splish splash he forgot about his bath
He went and put his moppin' shoes on

He was a moppin and a soppin'
Even on the ceilin'
Grinnin' and a groovin'
Moppin' and a movin'
yeah!

Yeah, he was really Mr. Cleanin'
I was a moppin' and a floppin'
Yeah he was swishin and a crashin
I was taking quite a lashin'
I was a mop that sure was floppin'
Movin' with the groovin'
Flip Flop, yeah
Flippin' and a floppin'
One time, I was a flippin' and a floppin'

Are you Dubya fans watching the debates in some alternate universe? Hmmm...no matter, the parody rocked. 5's from the other side of the aisle!

A subtle political parody without name-calling: we don't get too many of those around here. Great play on the original lyrics too...fives all round!

Clever political dig that even someone who detests Dubyah could enjoy...5's Royce, good to see your "Comments" section open for business again, too...

Clever. But, as Guy often proves, "clever" doesn't always mean "funny." Ravyn: You beat me to the punch with that comment. My work can be seen on othertimelines.com as much as here. (Yes, I know that's a lot.) Tim: Don't count on it. Mr. Clean is a registered Democrat. You'll notice he had an earring long before it was cool, and Republicans don't like guys like that. Of course, with all of Bush and Cheney's bald-faced lies...

Loved "Lady Manana." Couldn't say so there so I'll say so here.
