The Lyrics

So let me get this straight: The Republicans' answer to what OUR PRESIDENT proposes is tax cuts for the rich, further deregulation, a never-ending war, and whatever religious zealots and Rush Limbaugh tell them to do? Wait a second, we have a new President now, so there MUST have been an election... Do they not know this? They have to know. So either they're stupid, or they're crazy. Since George W. Bush has gone back to Texas (and stay out!), I'm guessing the latter.
Bright, they aren't.
They still feel their souls
they still feel their souls on fire!
Had a whole lot of money
and all of it burned
but they want to send the smoke still higher!
There's a thousand elections waiting out there.
They've lost a bunch lately, and they do not care.
They don't have any credibility to spare!
So
Viva Las Crazies!
Viva Las Crazies!

How they wish that there were more
than 24 percent who approve!
And even with Senators 41
there's not a whole lot they can move!
Well, there's taxes, abortion, and their own pork deal.
There's earmarks and gay rights over which they squeal.
Apologies to Limbaugh from Michael Steele!
Yeah!

Viva Las Crazies!
Viva Las Crazies!

Viva Las Crazies
with their right-wing issues
need a whole lot of tissues
for tears that fall down the drain!

Viva Las Crazies
turning right-wing into far-right
going gently into good-night
if you see them once
you'll never vote for them again!

On "principles" they will run.
They're gonna have them some fun
if it costs US our very last dime!
Yeah, we wound up broke, so we voted Barack.
Soon we'll have us a swingin' time!

Obama's gonna give it everything he's got.
Lady Luck says his chances sure look hot.
The Republicans? Their chances all are shot!
Ah!
Viva Las Crazies!
Viva Las Crazies!
Viva Las Crazies!
Viva...
Viva...
Las Crazies!
Thankyaverymuch, Mr. President.
