The Lyrics

Great musical that is.
I dreamed last night,
I was in the new election,
And by some chance,
I had brought Mike Moore along,
And there I stood,
Someone hollered,
"You can't save me",
And the voters didn't know right from wrong,

And the senate all said "Sit down,"
"Sit down; you're rocking the vote,"
And the senate all said "Sit down,"
"Sit down; you're rocking the vote,"

Corporations will drag you under,
By the ruffled neck of your thrift-store coat,
Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down,
Sit down, I'm rocking the vote!

I spoke away, at that little rotten podium,
And by some chance,
Found Noam Chomsky at my side,
And there I stood,
While that Kenneth Lay just mocked me,
But the voters joined in with their fists,

But the candidates said beware,
You taking on all the rich,
The candidates said beware,
The government don't give a s**t,

And John Ashcroft will drag you under,
While he spouts the colours from rainbows,
Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down,
Sit down, I'm rocking the vote.

And as I laughed,
At terrible tax incentives (Ahahahahahahaha),
A great big mob came and beat me to the ground,
And as I died,
I hollered "Someone save me",
That's the moment I woke up,
Thank the clock,
(Thank the clock)

And I said to myself no use,
No use to rock the vote,
And I said to myself no use,
The Democrats don't have a hope,

The election's predetermined,
All you have to do is cast fake votes,
Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down,
Sit down, I'm rocking the vote!

Sit down, I'm rocking,
Rocking the vote,
Sit down, I'm rocking,
Rocking the vote,
Sit down, I'm rocking,
Rocking the vote,
Sit down, I'm rocking,
Rocking the vote,
Sit down, I'm rocking,
Rocking the vote,
Sit down, I'm rocking,
Rocking the vote,

Sit down, I'm rocking,
Sit down, sit down, sit down,
I'm rocking the vote,
Sit down, I'm rocking,
Sit down, sit down, sit down,
I'm rocking the vote,
Sit down, I'm rocking,
Sit down, sit down, sit down,
I'm rocking the vote,
Sit down, I'm rocking,
Sit down, sit down, sit down,
I'm rocking the vote,

Sit down, you're rocking the vote!

I've got the fraud right here
To get Bush four more years
His brother Jeb says "Ha! Florida? Don't fear ---
Can screw,
Can screw,
All Florida I can screw,
And since your bro' Jeb says he can screw,
Then you,
Can't lose!"
