The Lyrics

Come and listen to the story bout the brother of Jeb
Recovering alcoholic and an ex coke-head
One day decides to run gainst a bloke named Al
Who has as much charisma as a wet paper towel

Gore's Home State. Went to Bush. Pathetic.

Well the first thing you know, the surplus is all gone
It went to the rich which is just sick and wrong
Millions of Americans are suddenly out of work
And start to realize the guy's a lying jerk

Voodoo. Economics. Doesn't work.

Now if I didn't know better I'd say the world was screwed
Our American President has a 78 IQ
Beware of al-Queda, Iraq and the Arab League
But wait, we need their oil, "Long live peace and democracy!"

Foreign policy. Big ol' Mess. World Hates Us.

Next year it's time to say goodbye to Bush and all his kin
Afghanis are so grateful for the leaflets we dropped in
In Iraq we've installed a guy, Islamagood I hate al-Queda
Holy crap, know who that is? Hey, it's Man-u-el Noriega.

See any patterns? Nah, me neither. We'll be back again now, ya hear.

(alternative ending)

Opium. Cash crop. It's all good now, ya hear.
