The Lyrics

Dedicated to Phil Alexander, who tried to do a parody of Roger Miller's classic, a choice which should earn him at least a 3-3-3 even if it's bad. As has been remarked by Paul Krugman of the New York Times, a brave, honest (and rare) man in the U.S. press, Our Fearless Appointed Leader With a Purpose occasionally has to come back to Washington, so the public can se him in the vicinity of work actually being done. As opposed to the hard-working, actually-elected (albeit indirectly) leader of Phil's homeland, who's always working, even when on the move, and that, not his occasional obscuring of the line between Labour and Conservative, is why they call him Tony Blur. I call him "the leader of the free world." Sorry, Monsieur Chretien, but Tony's better.
Failure as President, room for lots of improvement.
No luck, no peace, no stocks, he ain't got no '04 lock.
Ah, but, two weeks at Camp David just might help Georgie's id.
He's a man of genes by all means, King on the road!

Get on that big jet plane, off to Kennebunkport, Maine.
Big boots, switch to boat shoes, and maybe he'll go back to booze.
He'll smoke evildoers he's found, but Osama's still around.
He's a man of genes by all means, King on the road!

He knows every pilot on the Air Force One plane
but hardly the countries and their leaders' names.
But every time he takes us for some wrecks
he flies off to Crawford, Tex! I sing

Failure as President, room for lots of improvement.
No luck, no peace, no stocks, he ain't got no '04 lock.
Ah, but, two weeks at Camp David just might help Georgie's id.
He's a man of genes by all means, King on the road!

John Jenkins - March 28, 2003 - Report this comment
There is a minor pacing issue (first line has one too many syllables - I know, you could make it work if you sang it), but the parody still has some good lines (man of genes, hardly the countries and their leaders' names).

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
