The Lyrics

Satire about returning(?) Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-MS), whose praise of Strom Thurmond's 1948 segregationist presidental campaign has ignited a political firestorm
It does no good, though Trent Lott's tryin'
To take back, 'cause no one's buyin'
All his lyin'...
(You've heard Trent Lott's... boo-boo, boo-boo, boo-boo)
(You've heard Trent Lott's... boo-boo, boo-boo, boo-boo)
(You've heard Trent Lott's... boo-boo, boo-boo, boo-boo)
(You've heard Trent Lott's... boo-boo, boo-boo, boo-boo)

Lott hangs on to power he's got.
But does this world need more Trent Lott?
Used excuses to deceive us,
Hangs on, hangs on, hangs on
To what he's got.
(You've heard Trent Lott's... boo-boo, boo-boo, boo-boo)
(You've heard Trent Lott's... boo-boo, boo-boo, boo-boo)

Folks say he's gotta go, should call it quits.
What he said appalled,
But pleased the right wing twits.
(Wake him up) Lott wishes he never said it.
(Wake him up) Oh, no, he will regret it.
That segregated time in our fair land,
Back when Strom Thurmond ran,
Most folks understand:
(Jim Crows laws) Which bigots used to blind us.
(Jim Crow laws) We're glad we've left behind us.
Crazy (Lott must go), Crazy (Lott must go),
Crazy (Think it's over - don't stay)...

Lott hangs on to power he's got.
But does this world need more Trent Lott?
Used excuses to deceive us,
Hangs on, hangs on, hangs on
To what he's got.
(You've heard Trent Lott's... boo-boo, boo-boo, boo-boo)
(You've heard Trent Lott's... boo-boo, boo-boo, boo-boo)

There isn't anything Trent Lott can do.
He'll have to pay a price the G.O.P. will rue.
(Ratchet up) Watch Lott wither and burn.
(Ratchet up) Won't cool off while he's burning.
It's got him cryin', sighin' "Please, no more."
"Don't shut me out from the Senate floor."
(I fu**ed up) Strom's one hundred years old.
(I fu**ed up) I made a verbal miscue.
Save me (I won't go), save me (I won't go)
Save me (Think it's over? No way!)

Lott hangs on to power he's got.
But does this world need more Trent Lott?
Used excuses to deceive us.
Hangs on, hangs on, hangs on
To what he's got.

Lott hangs on to power he's got.
But does this world need more Trent Lott?
Use excuses to deceive us.
Hangs on, hangs on, hangs on
To what he's got.
