The Lyrics

1. Big props to my Spawn, the Amazon Princess, for coming up with the term "Donkey Con" for the Democratic Convention. 2. Love him or loathe him, Bubba can sure talk. 3. Yes, the pacing is a bit off.
Bill, I missed you so, I miss you still
'Cause I had forgotten how a President should sound
(Prez should sound)
Until I heard you speak last night in old Beantown
(Old Beantown)
I heard you speak and sat spellbound when you took the floor
I was almost as glad just hearin' from Al Gore
The speeches from John won't Kerry me till I hear from you Bill

I missed you so, I miss you still
We're gonna need you to keep the Democrats inspired
(Dems inspired)
So in November we can tell George Bush he's fired
(George, you're fired)
I will vote for John if you say I hafta
Say just a few more words, I might forget NAFTA
The speeches from John won't Kerry me till I hear from you Bill

I missed you so, I miss you still
You're gonna speak so John Kerry can take the day
So Bill, please rally all the Dems and lead the way
Oh, come on Bill
Oh, come on Bill
Come on and talk to me Bill
I got the Donkey Con Blues
Please talk to me Bill
I got the Donkey Con Blues
Donkey Con Blues
Talk to me Bill

Brilliant title, and great lines....my fave: "The speeches from John won't Kerry me till I hear from you Bill".

The NAFTA line was particulary inspired. Great job.

John and Johnny - Thanks, those were my favorite lines too! I spent most of my drive home Tuesday wondering how I could use the term "Donkey Con" in a song. I finally thought, "Donkey Con blues?" The light bulb over my head switched on and I sang out (at the top of my lungs and causing the driver in the next lane to swerve too close), "BILL!" I really need to drive home with the windows rolled up!

Now do " If I Were An Elephant And You Were A Kerry ".
Ravyn Rant - July 30, 2004 - Report this comment
Johnny - that means I'd have to actually listen to "If I Were a Carpenter" all the way through. Life is just too short for that!

Love it. And please tell your "Spawn, the Amazon Princess," that "Donkey Con" is classic.
