The Lyrics

A tribute to the latest 'foot-in-mouth' right-wing politician *CCC, in this case, stands for the Council of Conservative Citizens, the successor to the White Citizens' Councils of the 1950s and the 1960s
Haley Barbour, what a pity
Talkin' about the boy from Yazoo City
His recall is itty bitty
Talkin' about the boy from Yazoo City

It's really sad, a long time fad
To say that Jim Crow wasn't all that bad
History, selectively
He posed for pictures with some bigots called the CCC*
Such racist creeps
The company he keeps
He's so blind
Where is his mind

Haley Barbour, what a pity
Talkin' about the boy from Yazoo City

When in his teens, said he was keen
To hear a fairground speech by the Reverend Dr. King
He can't say, what he learned that day
He was distracted by some girls and turned away

Oo, oo oo whee ee
How could he ever seem
To understand
All Americans

Every time he opens his mouth
Wonder what he'll say
Now he wants to talk about race, oo
He ought to go away, yeah

Haley Barbour, what a pity
Talkin' about the boy from Yazoo City

Ever since, his words he minced
Still most Americans remain to be convinced
He was meant, and really bent
On running in two-thousand twelve for president

Oo, oo oo whee ee
If he's the nominee
He'll be toast
From coast to coast

Haley Barbour, what a pity
Talkin' about the boy from Yazoo City
His recall is itty bitty
Talkin' about the boy from Yazoo City (repeat 2x, fade)
