The Lyrics

"Sandi" isn't a girlfriend or anything like that. She's just someone I correspond with, and we've spent the last two weeks consoling each other over both baseball and politics. Yes, she's a "Yankee lefty" just like me. And "Sandi" sounds close enough to "Fanny" -- and it is "Fanny," not "Annie."
I pulled in the voting booth
I was feeling 'bout half past dead.
Four years of Georgie Bush
have really hurt my head.
"Hey, Mister, can you tell me
can we put this bum to bed?
He just grinned and took my card.
"No," was all he said.

Take a load off, Sandi.
Take a load for free.
Take a load off, Sandi.
And... you put the load (put the load) right on me.

"Bush won it fair and square
get over it," they say
even though we all know Jeb threw
thousands of votes away.
"This time will be different"
or so did my vow go.
But they fear gay marriage more than
terrorists in Ohio.

Take a load off, Sandi.
Take a load for free.
Take a load off, Sandi.
And... you put the load (put the load) right on me.

Kerry won the first debate
with words you should hear, kid:
"Saddam Hussein did not attack us
Osama bin Laden did."
"Don't you criticize me," Bush said
"you know this job's hard work."
Kerry didn't pounce on him.
Now who's the bigger jerk?

Take a load off, Sandi.
Take a load for free.
Take a load off, Sandi.
And... you put the load (put the load) right on me.

Freedom hopes have come and gone.
Our goal could not be reached.
Frist and DeLay run things so
Bush'll never be impeached.
How we gonna make it
all the way to 2008?
Just get more folks registered
and work and work and wait.

Take a load off, Sandi.
Take a load for free.
Take a load off, Sandi.
And... you put the load (put the load) right on me.

The American voters let Bush
get away with every crime.
My head is sinking low
and I do believe it's time
to go back to Miss Sandi
you know she's the only one
who fondly remembers back
before 2001.

Take a load off, Sandi.
Take a load for free.
Take a load off, Sandi.
And... you put the load (put the load) right on me.

Michael, Please try to at least be accurate with your diatribe.

even though we all know Jeb threw
thousands of votes away.

Now if you said this about Diebold it may have been a valid point. You have parodied one of my favorite songs and I must say did a very good job of it except for one inaccuracy. I wish I could say that this is the best "Weight" song on the site today but alas you have been beat out by the parody master Johhny D. But hey, do you really want to just wait for four more years or will you be out there doing something about your pain? I've weighed this parody and the scale said 555 pounds.

Michael, I feel your pain - I still find it amazing that these people have such a fear of gay marriage that they want to actually amend the Constitution to exclude people (for what would be the first time in this nation's history). Bill Maher is probably right - some of these "Christians" are the most un-Jesus like people on Earth. The morning after the election I was physically ill. Secession, Civil War or Impeachment - which ever comes the fastest. Oh, Guy - Congratulations. (But how come Bush acted like it was the first presidential election that he actually won?)

"Who's the bigger jerk", indeed...well done.

A 4-year wait in the political desert. Hope these 5s will offer some consolation.

Conservative or Liberal, it's always fascinating to see how a brilliant parody writer like Michael gets a load off his chest! Well written, 555.

Guy: Two words for you: Katherine Harris. Robert: Because it WAS the first Presidential election the bum has won. Secession? Who the hell would be our commander-in-chief? Wait, Bill Clinton lives in a blue State... do we meet in Philly like they did in 1787? Governor and ex-Mayor Ed Rendell can chair! Ravyn: I don't really think Kerry's a jerk, but I am terribly disappointed that he went with the local instead of the express, if you know what I mean, and I needed a word that rhymed with "work." Merry (the following is intended as humor, but it ain't funny): Considering the lifestyle that you and Pippin have, I wouldn't be getting so smug. Don't you know that America now officially hates faggots, transgenders and people of questionable gender traits? Johnny: High praise coming from the Viscount of Viagra, but I think your "Weight" parody today ascended closer to heaven than mine did. No fair getting divine assistance!

Ha Ha Ha - Your remarks are funnier than your parody. And I meant that in the way one would say this milk tastes funny. Not.

Michael honey, thank-you for continuing to question our gender - it is always welcome! XXXXX! :-D

the way you managed to seamlessly fit "even though we all know Jeb threw thousands of votes away" in was sublime Michael - true artistry - 555
