The Lyrics

One of the last gasps of doo-wop (1964) before it evolved into soul gets redone for those who suffer under Our Fearless Appointed Leader With a Purpose.
Find me a job tomorrow mornin'
that's what I always say I'm gonna do.
But I go down to Social Service
get turned down, makes me oh-so-nervous.
This land's gonna be livin' in lots o' misery
just like it was under Daddy Bush.

I'd like to buy my girl some presents
just like I did during the Clinton Years.
Wanna show how much I love her
but I know one way or the other
our love is goin' down in lots o' misery
just like my folks under Daddy Bush.
Whoo-oo-OO-oo!
Whoo, oo-woo-oo-woo-oo-oo!

Just like it was under Daddy Bush.
Just like it was under Daddy Bush.
Just like it was under Daddy Bush.
Just like it was under Daddy Bush.

Talk about love and freedom
just face some conservative hate.
I'm gonna go to Iowa and
be a John Kerry Delegate!

Oh, all right, now, I'm speculatin'
wonder what 2004 is gonna bring.
If we don't beat Georgie next year
the whole decade's gonna all be wrecked years.
He'll lose 'cause, stupid, it's the economy!
Just like it was under Daddy Bush.
Whoo-oo-OO-oo!
Whoo, oo-woo-oo-woo-oo-oo!

Just like it was under Daddy Bush.
Just like it was under Daddy Bush.
Just like it was under Daddy Bush.
Just like it was under Daddy Bush.
(repeat 'til fade)
I know, really deep lyrics, but I'm workin' with doo-wop here. It was supposed to make you sing along. It wasn't supposed to make you think, which is hard when that's exactly what the parody is supposed to do.

Sorry the one-guy got you. Based partly on your comments, I think you deserve a 5-4-5. Why are you going to Iowa for work for Kerry - don't you think his campaign will make it to New Jersey?

Of course his campaign won't make it to New Jersey. I figure he'll have it wrapped up much earlier. Or do you really think South Carolina will turn down a war hero for a Jew (Lieberman), an egghead doctor (Dean) or a lame goofball (Gephardt)? Don't even think about John Edwards, he'll be lucky to get to New Hampshire.
