The Lyrics

The unseen forseen mistook a little quip
And went with Jesse Jackson
Over to the Gaza Strip
It took a little fakin' and
They set out on what seems
As they sought to study Kurdish
with their friends mujahiddeen

They conspired for fun
Although skittish kept a hummin'
They won't comply with many
As they did a while ago
They conspired once more and
Now they'll begin a runnin'
In the states like Mississippi
With funds from Texaco

It turns the liver
when we see the skittish run
And they really must have wondered
Why they treatin' 'em so bum
The inept imply
They made the frugal king
But when you check the total sales
They haven't saved a thing

They conspired for fun
Although skittish kept a hummin'
They won't comply with many
As they did a while ago
They conspired once more and
Now they'll begin a runnin'
In the states like Mississippi
With funds from Texaco

With trickery now
They will spread a bunch of lies
Then they'll hire a new mascot
And so many did apply
We smelled their ire as
We saw their faces swell
Then we opened up some quorum fun
Then they began to yell

They conspired for fun
Although skittish kept a hummin'
They won't comply with many
As they did a while ago
They conspired once more and
Now they'll begin a runnin'
In the states like Mississippi
With funds from Texaco

Yeah, they ramble like liars
And their party's in shambles
They're jealous of the Bushes
And his cabinet on the go
They change so fast that sound
Couldn't catch 'em in
States like Mississippi
With funds from Texaco

They're tired old minnions will
imperil us no more
We grabbed an elevator
And we headed for the floor
They fill their ears will cotton balls
empowered from behind
And when we turn the power off
You'll see they're way behind

They conspired for fun
Although skittish kept a hummin'
They won't comply with many
As they did a while ago
They conspired once more and
Now they'll begin a runnin'
In the states like Mississippi
With funds from Texaco

Yeah, they ramble like liars
And their party's in shambles
They're jealous of the Bushes
And his cabinet on the go
They change so fast that sound
Couldn't catch 'em in
States like Mississippi
With funds from Texaco

Two-thousand four, Bush goes a little more
Two-thousand four, Bush goes a little more

Dang! I was going to use this song. :D You did it justice, especially with it's long verses...all thumbs up, cause I know this one.

No Bush haters and democrat debaters out there? Can't believe y'all let this one slide. You all must agree with this then. :D How is Jess ever going to get to the white house if you all let stuff like this pass about him and his party?
Michael Pacholek - June 22, 2003 - Report this comment
The only way Jesse Jackson is going to the White House is if John Kerry invites him -- in other words, the same way he got there for Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton. "The only way a Republican is going to get into the White House is to marry Margaret Truman." -- Groucho Marx, 1948, but that only held up for four more years.
