The Lyrics

Bedroom for sale or rent, give me your 50 cents
Sleep where Abe Lincoln slept
I smoke cigars, not cigarettes, ah but
I don't really inhale, I just
Puff, that's why I'm so pale
I'm a man of means by ALL means
King of Landlords

Ride on my bullshit train, Arkansas to Bangor, Maine
I've worn out Hillary, she don't pay attention to me
I use old stogies I have found
Long, but not too big around
I'm a man of means by ALL means
King of Landlords

I've pulled every single trick from every book
I've got lots of skeletons in dark little nooks
I wore out my welcome in Washington town
Returned a bunch of items that I didn't own, I sing

Bedroom for sale or rent, lend me your 50 cents
Sleep where Abe Lincoln slept
I smoke cigars, not cigarettes, ah but
I don't really inhale, I just
Puff, that's why I'm so pale
I'm a man of means by ALL means
King of landlords

Bedroom for sale or rent
Give me your 50 cents
Sleep where Abe Lincoln slept
I smoke cigars, not cigarettes, ah but
I don't really inhale, I just puff
That's why I'm so pale
I'm a man of means by all means--King of Landlords
King of Landlords......

Thanks Merry--nor do I

The only thing funny about Bill Clinton is the laughable way you right-wing losers still go after the man who constantly kicked your asses. Maybe you haven't noticed, but John Kerry is now the leader of the free world (since Al Gore isn't running for re-election), and on November 2, he'll make it official. Why don't you go after the guy who's actually running against ya boy Georgie?

Michael P-don't worry, I am going to go after your boy-but you know how a skunk leaves a smell long after he's gone? Well that's how I feel about Clinton.

They were trying to get my smell out of the White House for a long time but the current resident's smell seems to be as putrid.

Funny, funny stuff. Don't understand why people can't judge a parody solely on it's merits though.
