The Lyrics

Thomas E. Dewey. Estes Kefauver. Nelson Rockefeller. Hubert Humphrey. Ed Muskie. Ted Kennedy. John Glenn. Gary Hart. Bob Dole. Colin Powell. Al Gore. John Kerry. John McCain. What do all of these men have in common? They all used to be "The next President of the United States."
(instrumental opening)

When McCain comes
they run and hide their cash.
They treat him like he's trash.
When McCain comes.
When McCain comes.

Once the son shined.
Now John slips into his shade.
(Once the son shined.)
His campaign's torn and frayed.
(Once the son shined.)
Once the son shined.
Once the son shined.

Not our kind.
It's rain this time.

I can show you
the immigration bill.
Supports the Bush war still.
I can show you.
I can show you.

Not our kind.
It's rain this time.

and Romney lead in polls.
He won't reach White House goal.
Won't beat Rudy!
Won't beat Hillary!

(instrumental break)

Hsac rieht edih dna nur yeht, semoc NiacCm nehw.

Once, McCain compared himself to Luke Skywalker. But now he sees what happens when you fall to the Dark Side.

Alas, we truly did hardly know him. A hero no more. First he hates the First Amendment with his campaign finance "reform," signing on with that socialist Russ Feingold, or is that Russ Foolsgold? Then that immigration bill. He's right on the war and most other issues, but those two, campaign-finance and immigration, make him a no-no for the White House! Just like you and your weak parodies, Mikey!

That's the weird thing, Bernard: We both have reasons not to want him in there. The difference is, if he did somehow come back and win the nomination, you'd be for him 110 percent -- but then, if you Republicans could do math, you'd be able to balance a budget at least once since 1960 (the last time a GOP President did so).
