The Lyrics

Words to follow are only the Echo voices, unless noted otherwise.
ECHO VOICES ONLY:
All the chips are down
For our Gov'nor, Gray
Davis gonna walk
That's what people say
I'll be votin' for him
On this recall day
California schemin'
Power-grabbin' play

Ooo - ooo - ooo
Long parade
Of Gov'nor Wanna-Be's
Gary Coleman's passé
Buffet likes Ar-nold
Knows he's in the fray
California teamin'

ALL VOICES:
With candidates today (SOLO VOICE: Bustaman-tay!)

ECHO VOICES ONLY:
All this makes me frown
Not that I love Gray
Sixty million bucks
Wasted in this way
If he's a losin' feller
He could leave today
California screamin'

ALL VOICES:
A Grand Ol' Party play
California reamin'
And now we'll have to pay
California seemin'
More crazy every day

I am a Californian who thinks the recall makes sense, but this is a good first parody, Yolanda. I like the line "Not that I love Gray." Sorry the "one-guy" got you.
