The Lyrics

You knew I had to get him. The biggest liar in America is beginning to get his comeuppance, and there ain't no pill that can cure it!
Day after day, callers so shrill
the man with the foolish grin is popping painkilling pills.
And nobody wants to know him, they can see that he's just a fool.
And he never seems to notice he's
a fool on the pills, sees his luck going down
and the eyes in his head see the vultures come 'round.

Well on the way, head in a cloud
the man of a thousand falsehoods bashing Democrats loud.
And nobody seems to hear him, or the wind he appears to break.
And he don't give no right answers, but
the fool on the pills sees his luck going down
and the eyes in his head see the vultures come 'round.

And nobody seems to like him, they can see that he's so untrue.
All he's got left are his feelings, and
the fool on the pills sees his luck going down
and the eyes in his head see the vultures come 'round.

Ohhhh, oh-whoahhhh! And 'round and 'round and 'round!

And he never listens to them, he still thinks that Rushie rules!
We don't like him!
The fool on the pills sees his luck going down
and the eyes in his head see the vultures come 'round.

Oh, and 'round and 'round and 'round and 'round.
Ohhhh, whoa-oh-oh-oh!
Note: In this parody, the words "left" and "right" appear, but in those cases have nothing to do with politics. Which Rush also should've had: Nothing to do with politics. What a joke. Only he's not laughing anymore.

Paul McCartney and Wings also had a song that went "you won't get far if you keep on sticking your hand in the medicine jar." Great job on this parody, Michael

Cool! Just what the liar deserved! Best part of this story was Rush's fake facts being ripped to bits by callers to "The Jim Rome Show!"

I never could stand Rush. Especially after he picked on that poor lobster...

How come you didn't zap the heck out of young kennedy for his 2nd drunk driving & that current trip to rehab? (they were both at the same time!) Could it be that because he is a government offical, (unlike Rush), and so it is okay & another "free pass" time OR is it that he is a demoncrat and democrats can do no wrong - even being drunks in office - in office where we tax payers foot the bill for the pleasure of having TWO drunk Kennedys in office? I'd like a refund! PS Jealousy is normally odios, but in ths case, it's entertaining!
