The Lyrics

This here is just a story 'bout a turkey day spread,
They had a special dinin' in for all the troops they fed.
Al Queda they, were in a foul mood,
To fund their terror, got to have that crude.

(Spoils that is, War's gold, idiolatry)

Well the first thing you know the TV's all a-blare,
Kin folk said hey, what's he doin' there?
Said Crawford Texas is the place he oughta be,
Just a loadin' up his guns for to shoot some wild turkey.

(Grilled that is, Make ya drool, Texas char)

Well, the next thing you see, he's pullin' up chair,
Bread broke with his troops way over there.
But Baghdad airport was the place he went you see,
He chose to do his celebratin' with the infantry.

He spent some time then said goodbye to all those soldierin'
The troops thought this was gonna be a borin' dinin' in.
They got themselves a job to do with much hostility,
It was great to see them celebrate with such revelry.

(They set a spell, shook their blues off, We want then all back now, ya hear?)

All politics aside - there's something eerily resonant between the good-ol'-boy Jed Clampett and the good-ol'-boy President ... both have a folksy way of talkin' to "just plain folks", and this parody captures that.

This does seem to be quite true Johnny. I'll say this quick and then duck... I'll take a cowboy for a commander in chief any day.
