The Lyrics

This is a parody to get back to my roots: Gold old fashioned Bush Bashing. This song essentially sums up the Presidential elections that Shrub has been in.
Now somewhere in the redneck ranches out in Texas there lived a dumb boy named Bush the buffoon
One day Iraqis found oil in their motherland
Forced young Dubya Bush's hand
Dubya didn't like that, he said "I'm gonna git that oil"
So one day he talked to his dad, booked himself a room at the Whitehouse, too soon

Bush the Buffoon, it took him 'till June, to find out he had a rival
He ran attacks, with fraudulent facts, the Dems should have charged him with libel
His rival it seems, had broken his dreams
By winning the vote in Miami
His name was Al Gore, and he was a great bore
A genius, but awkward and clammy
Near Capital Hill, Shrub's pawn Rhenquist, Will
Gave Dubya the vote, screwing fairness
Bush knew right then, to win it again, he'd squash all political awareness!
But Mike Moore was hot, soon Dubya was not
So Dubya, collapsed in the polls now, aahh

Now, John Kerry came in, boring as sin, and proceeded to lie down and take it
He said, "Bush, you're kind of bad."
And Dubya said, "John, you've made me so glad
Glad because this time, this time I won't have to steal it or fake it!"

So Bush the Buffoon, he made in '05's June
The constitution the Bible
Justice checked out, and she left in great doubt
Our future; our country's survival!
When I say he made the constitution the bible, I mean that he replaced the constitiution with the bible. It looks a little ambiguous reading it over.

Lots of wonderful lines in here, Charlie! Bash on!

Charlie, excellent parody! I disagree that Kerry lost without cheating though....or that he wasn't a good candidate. But you obviously put a lot of work into this one, and the pacing is perfect.

Oh, CD you devil - priceless. Don't ever forget your roots. Do you ever get the feeling that we'll all be doing it in the missionary position (but never on a Sunday) if the Red Staters get their way? Nice write, enjoyable read. Later, bob

I'm glad that you guys like it. As I was writing it, I didn't think it was going to turn out to be good, but I suprised myself. But man oh man, what a pain in the ass to pace!

It could be worse. We could have a First Lady as bad as the "President." Some say Florence Harding, a.k.a "the Duchess," poisoned her husband Warren for his philandering. But the worst in my lifetime? Everyone knew her as Nancy.

Brilliantly constructed, CD - especially loved the "Now, John Kerry came in, boring as sin, and proceeded to lie down and take it" line :-)

Thanks a lot, guys. Michael, I was too young to remember much about Nancy Reagan, but there is something really creepy about Laura Bush, too.

Good version of that song rom The White Album. Why don't you come up with one about Dubya's look alike cousin Prince Charles and Camilla. What Beatle record would that go with?
Charlie Decker - February 15, 2005 - Report this comment
2Eagle: "Misery" would come to mind. ..and I suppose "Her Majesty"

(SOTM) Too many good lines to list them all. Fabulous piece of writing, Charlie. 555

(SOTM) One of the better political parodies I've read on Dubya.

(sotm) Watching the left and right bash each other is about as fun as being in a car wreck, unless it's at AmIRight.

Luke: Is this another tally in the great "Charlie's OS choices I don't know" count for you? ;-P
Jake A Ralphing (Luke Brattoni) - March 13, 2005 - Report this comment
*sigh* Ya got me there! But I hardly know ANYBODY'S OS choices (I refer to this as the 'Generation Cringe'.) For songs I don't know I google the original lyrics, compare them and this gives a general view of how well the parody is written.

What "Generation Cringe"? I'm, like, a year older than you! Must be an Aussie thing...;-) - March 14, 2005 - Report this comment
Great rhymes, many great subs for the original. I especially like the first line and the whole Kerry verse. Fun stuff, Sgt. Decker. And now an anecdote just for the hell of it: I went to a concert by an early-Beatles tribute band, "1964," and this girl next to me kept yelling for them to do "ROCKY RACCOON! ROCKY RACCOOOOON!!!" I finally had to tell her it wasn't gonna happen. Wrong era. Plus she was annoying.

(SOTM) Us old farts are counting on you, Charlie. Don't let us down ... and from the looks of this parody, I don't believe you will !

Charlie, I really enjoy it when a writer pokes fun at both Democrats an Republican in the same parody. From my perspective, your caricature of GWB is distorted; but, otherwise, this was very good.

This parody also raises a question that I addressed on the Message Board on the "February SOTM Entries - Entries Closed" thread.
