The Lyrics

"My hat is in the ring." -- Theodore Roosevelt, using an already old prizefighting analogy to announce his 1912 bid to regain the Presidency. It didn't work, but now, every time someone announces he (or she) is running for office, he (or she) is said to "toss his (or her) hat into the ring."
We need new President.
Bush, should've never sent.
No chance, lots of regrets.
He ain't had no winning bets.
Ah, but two years more of his doom
we'll have eight years or four of bloom.
It's a major need for new deeds.
Ring with hat-load!

Obama, John Edwards.
They could send us all forwards.
Joe Biden, is it he?
Or could it be Hillary?
They smoked John Kerry and Al Gore.
But each could come try it once more.
It's a major need for new deeds.
Ring with hat-load!

We could even go back to the Republicans.
Maybe old John McCain could be the man.
Rudy or Mitt or Brownback could come down
or some guy we ain't thought of yet could come around!
I sing...

Failure now in White House.
Room to let out that louse.
Could it be Bill Richardson?
Or is Vilsack the man?
Or could we turn to Newt Gingrich?
I'd hate to make that switch.
It's a major need for new deeds.
Ring with hat-load!

We need new President.
Bush, should've never sent.
No chance, lots of regrets.
He ain't had no winning bets.
Ah, but two years more of his doom
we'll have eight years or four of bloom.
It's a major need for new deeds.
Ring with hat-load!
