The Lyrics

It may surprise the Righties here, but a lot of us Lefties hate Air America too. At least I do. All they do is shout with no substance like Rush or Sean does. And Al Franken, he was funny 20 years ago, but he's really lost it. The lyrics reference some radio that IS worth listening to: Democracy Now and the BBC. Anyway it's a good parody to help enjoy the day with our Commander-in-Chimp.
"Let us be lovers", said Bill Clinton to his young intern.
"I've got some big cigars here in my bag."
But little did we know-ow-ow, we'd get a Chimp instead-ea-ead,
But I can't stand Air America.

Janine Garafalo screams about Bush for two hours.
Al Franken puts me to sleep with his monotone.
Then I heard Ed Schultz, he yells just like Rush Limbaugh,
And I can't stand Air America.
Yawning at bad jokes,
The same ones we've heard before.
Randi Rhodes screams that Bush was Cheney's Chimp.
I thought, now that's so original Randi, you're brilliant.

Mike Malloy's over-the-top as he screams with no substance,
This network ain't quite Democracy Now!
So I changed the station, and instead heard the BBC,
'Cause I can't stand Air America.

Al Franken, you're just not funny no more you should know it.
You're boring, redundant, and you're station sucks,
Just one more shout-show on the AM dial
And I can't stand Air America
I can't stand Air America
I can't stand Air America

Well, at least the BBC's got a great theme song, thanks to Austin Powers. I personally don't bother to listen to any pundits on the radio. As for the chimp comparison... isn't that what racists used to say about blacks? I'd watch the low blows if I were you.
