The Lyrics

No, it's not about what you think it's about. The man Georgie Bush called his good friend, not to mention the man he called Kenny Boy, died today. Cause? "A massive coronary." Anybody think he committed suicide rather than face jail?
Yester-Lay
couldn't stand that he would go away.
Now it looks like he'll eternal-pay.
Oh, I do not mourn Yester-Lay.

Suddenly
he's not living man he used to be.
There's a shadow perpetually.
Oh, Yester-Lay's gone suddenly.

Why he had to go?
Don't you know?
A prison stay.
He did something wrong.
He's not long.
This Yester-Lay.

Yester-Lay.
This seems such a cruel game to play.
Not compared to what he threw away.
Oh, he deserves this parody.

Why he had to go?
Don't you know?
A prison stay.
He did something wrong.
He's not long.
This Yester-Lay.
Hey hey hey.

Yester-Lay.
This seems such a cruel game to play.
Not compared to what he threw away.
Oh, do not mourn for Yester-Lay.
Hm-mm-mm-mm-mm...
Mm-mm!
In case anyone still cares about this man, arguably the biggest crook in the history of the human race, he was 64 years old. And before you tell me that he gave money to Democrats, too, here's the numbers from the 2000 election: $651,760 to Republicans, $61,960 to Democrats -- 10 to 1.

I see parodies are like potato chips. You can't just do one on a guy: you have to do two. Well here's fives for your spoofiness.

Well, you're getting close to "overkill" here, Michael...but this one is also well done...I think I like it a bit more than the other, actually. 5's ~ ~ ~

well, I didn't know that about his political donations - being a friend of Dubya's explains that though - he is still revered in his home state with all his charity, etc. and it's amazing that a man like that can come so unstuck - the dark side can emerge in anyone - 555
