The Lyrics

On October 7, 2003 CA governor Gray Davis, facing a $16 billion deficit, was recalled and replaced with Ahnold. Four-plus years later, the Terminator is facing a $16 billion deficit. Recall time. Musical chairs in Sacramento?
Four years, the old boss gone;
Things are still going wrong.
New boss can't make star power
Make money troubles go away.

That dudes turns to Gray,
And try as he may,
We just don't feel good,
We don't feel alright
No, Arnold doesn't do finer, finer, finer.

For Gray it was recall. . .
Replaced by a Ken doll,
Who too can't mind the legislative store—
They piss the dimes away.

That dude turns to Gray;
We're still in dismay.
Had nice teeth, looked good;
He would set things right,
But we find things still aren't fine here, fine here, fine here.

Time for a new recall;
Economy's still stalled.
Let's face it: time for him to go.
Should be voted away.

That dude's turned to Gray,
Whom we sent away,
'cause he was no good
Didn't treat us right.
Four years later, things aren't finer, finer, finer.

So let's turn to Gray
(Let's turn to Gray),
Send Arnold away
(Dude's had his day).
'cause we've been had
(Dude, go away).
Let's bring Gray back on home
('dieu, Dude; [howdy] do, Gray).

Arnie, who needs this clown?

Welcome back Sir John!! This is very true . . . Gray Davis was more of an accountant-type, rather than a politician. Gov. Ahnold does come by it naturalich, though! ~Auf Wieder, Herr Johann
