Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Okay, here's the promised Oil King Medley, incorporating Sun King/Mean Mr. Mustard/Polythene Pam/She Came In Through the Bathroom Window/Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End. (I'll do "You Never Give Me Your Money" and "Her Majesty" separately, because that's how I heard it as a twelve-year-old. So there!) On second thought, I will include "Her Majesty" here!
(instrumental intro)

Aiiieeee!
Here comes the Oil King.
Here comes the Oil King.
Everybody’s greedy.
Everybody’s jobless.
Here comes the Oil King.

Dona todos ricos mi dinero no trabajo lost my job.
Cuando esta guerra en Iraqui para siempre surge the war.
Mio telefono wiretapping mis derechos CIA.*

****

Mean Mr. Cheney,
He has this sneer
Year after year.
He’s got heart troubles.
Slept in a hole in the ground
When those hijacked airplanes hit town.
Neither he nor Bush could be found.
Such a mean oil man!
Such a mean oil man!

Those chickenhawks rake in the dough,
Make soldiers go,
Trying to boost profits.
Looking for more rebated tax.
Gave employee health care the ax.
Halliburton no-bids Iraq.
They’re some shifty old men!
Shifty old men!

****

Well, you should see Irate Iraq,
The shock and awe of a pre-emptive attack!
They made a Mass Weapons claim
So they could string up Hussein.
Yeah, you should see Irate Iraq!
Boom! Boom! Boom!

Well, old Fallujah and Baghdad they did purge.
It didn’t work well, so they ordered a surge.
Yeah, it’s the kind of a war
That killed ten thousand or more.
They think Iraq and ExxonMobil should merge!
Gush! Gush! Gush!

(instrumental break)

(Dubya’s coming to the White House! Oh, look out!)

He came in through a botched election,
Protected by a hanging chad,
But now we scratch our heads and wonder:
Did we choose him, or were we had?

Didn’t anybody warn us?
Didn’t anybody see?
Voters blocked from polls in Florida:
Voters ‘gainst the Prez-to-Be.

We said he’d always been a screw-up.
He once chugged fifteen drinks a day.
Our worldwide reputation blew up.
If you dissed him, they made you pay.

And so we tried again in ’04:
A million-marcher protest mob!
Ohio vote machines from Diebold…
How they’d steal! Oh, how they could rob!

Didn’t anybody warn us?
Didn’t anybody see?
Over-tally in Ohio:
Much more votes than voters, see?
Oh, no!

****

Got to be a way
To win back White House.
Got to be a way…
Redeem our home
Think, fellow Demmies,
We could try:
Combine the woman and black guy.

Golden ticket fills our eyes!
No more just missing the prize!
Think, fellow Demmies,
We could try:
Combine the woman and black guy.

Got to be a way
To win back White House.
Got to be a way…
Redeem our home.
Think, fellow Demmies,
We could try:
Combine the woman and black guy.

****

Dems,
You better carry that vote,
Carry that vote in ’08!
Dems,
You better carry that vote,
Carry that vote in ’08!

(instrumental break)

We better stop all in-fighting!
We better keep debate clean and civil.
If we fling at each other dreck and drivel,
We’ll break down.

Dems!
You better carry that vote,
Carry those voters this time!
Dems!
You better carry that vote,
Carry those voters this time!

****

(instrumental break)

Oh yeah! Oh yay!
Are you gonna cast in your vote
Today?

(instrumental break0

Vote, you! Vote, you! Vote, you! Vote, you!
Vote, you! Vote, you! Vote, you! Vote, you!
Vote, you! Vote, you! Vote, you! Vote, you!
Vote, you! Vote, you! Vote, you! Vote, you!
Vote, you! Vote, you! Vote, you! Vote, you!
Vote, you! Vote, you! Vote, you! Vote, you…!

‘Cause in the end
The votes we rake
Must far exceed
The votes they fake.

Uh-huh!
Vote! Vote! Vote!

****

His Majesty’s a pretty bad Prez
And he mangles everything he says.
His Majesty’s a pretty bad Prez
‘Cause he rules in some fascist ways.
I wanna tell him how he’s ruined this land
But I just might lose my job or pay a fine.
His Majesty’s a pretty bad Prez.
We’re gonna boot him in ’09,
Oh yeah!
We’re gonna boot him in ’09!

****
****

*Give all the rich my money I'm not working lost my job.
When/How much this war in Iraqi forever surge the war.
My telephone wiretapping my rights CIA.

Once again, Melanie, superb!! The "Vote, you! Vote, you!" lines are funny I LMAO'd at them! I just love "The End" version of this melody. Your song really tells all! Hope the right president gets chosen this year!
