"Yellow Snow Regime"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

To the memory of Frank Zappa, rocker, humorist and anti-censorship crusader, who once wrote a song titled "Don't Eat the Yellow Snow." And to the memory of Al Gore, who could have stopped Georgie Bush...if he had lived long enough, if you know what I mean.
In the town where I was born
people vote religiously.
But way down south in Florida
came an end to democracy.

So we sailed on down the drain
'cause the Prez is off the beam
and we live beneath the waste
of a yellow snow regime.

We all live in a yellow snow regime
yellow snow regime
yellow snow regime.
We all live in a yellow snow regime
yellow snow regime
yellow snow regime.

And our friends are unemployed.
Many more of them homeless now.
And the band begins to play...

(Cue video scenes of poor people,
and instead of the brass band from the original, we hear,
"And I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm...")

We all live in a yellow snow regime
yellow snow regime
yellow snow regime.
We all live in a yellow snow regime
yellow snow regime
yellow snow regime.

(cue sounds of war machines)

Rumsfeld: Full speed ahead, Mr. "President"! Full speed ahead!
Bush: Thanks for combatizin' 'em, Rummy!

And as we live (and as we live) a life of sleaze (a life of sleaze)
everyone of us (everyone of us) still lives in need (still lives in need)
guys don't care (guys don't care) 'less you got green ('less you got green)
in our yellow (in our yellow) snow regime! (snow regime! Ha-ha!)

We all live in a yellow snow regime
yellow snow regime
yellow snow regime.
We all live in a yellow snow regime
yellow snow regime
yellow snow regime.
We all live in a yellow snow regime
yellow snow regime
yellow snow regime.
(repeat 'til fade)

Another good one Michael. Funniest fantasy on the board today, I'll wager. You do have a point here. Keep your hat on and no one may notice. I gave you 5's again because the art merits 5s. If sentiments were a category, you'd be in trouble with my vote.

As a man I'm sure you admire, John McLaughlin, would say, "Well stated, Guy." I thought the title alone was worth a five.
