The Lyrics

Written in 1999, when Republican lightweight Dan Quayle last ran for President
Quayyyyyle! Quay-ay-ayle!
Lightweight runs, and he oughta go home
Quayle... he's a Quayle, he's a Quayle, he's a Quayle, he's a Quayle, he's a Quay-ay-ayle...
Lightweight runs, and he oughta go home

He's right wing, and we think he's dumb
Lightweight runs, and he oughta go home
Spells "potato" with an "e," how come?
Lightweight runs, and he oughta go home

Come, Mr. TV Man, tell us he's bananas
Lightweight runs, and he oughta go home
Come, Mr. TV Man, tell us he's bananas
Lightweight runs, and he oughta go home

It takes your votes, go and boot that bunch!
Lightweight runs, and he oughta go home
It takes your votes, go and boot that bunch!
Lightweight runs, and he oughta go home

Quayle! He's a Quay-ay-ayle...
Lightweight runs, and he oughta go home
Quayle... he's a Quayle, he's a Quayle, he's a Quayle, he's a Quayle, he's a Quay-ay-ayle...
Lightweight runs, and he oughta go home

Come, Mr. TV Man, tell us he's bananas
Lightweight runs, and he oughta go home
Come, Mr. TV Man, tell us he's bananas
Lightweight runs, and he oughta go home

It takes your votes, go and boot that bunch!
Lightweight runs, and he oughta go home
It takes your votes go and boot that bunch!
Lightweight runs, and he oughta go home

Quayyyyyle! Quay-ay-ayle!
Lightweight runs, and he oughta go home
Quayle... he's a Quayle, he's a Quayle, he's a Quayle, he's a Quayle, he's a Quay-ay-ayle...
Lightweight runs, and he oughta go home
