The Lyrics

California recently had the recall election in which Governor Gray Davis was removed and replaced by some guy named Arnold with a funny last name.
He would never say where they came from
Cannot run for office without funds
Tell them you'll vote right
Hope that they will bite
And give you dough
The cash just flows

Campaign Contributions
Who can put a rein on you?
It gets worse with each Election
Not much we can do.

They tell you of the Bills they want to see
You mention that you won't do that for free
Pandering all the time
Quid pro quo, you must produce the dime
Should be a crime

Campaign Contributions
Who can put a rein on you?
It gets worse with each Election
Not much we can do.

Recall? What recall? Did it make the news?
This parody isn't limited to that context. Good job.

A nice, if mistitled parody. Leave the Gray Davis Ruby Tuesday parodies to me ;-)

Thanks, Alvin. This was in the group of the first 5 parodies I posted here back in November. I should have title this "Campaign Contributions" In fact, I think that WAS my original working title and for some stupid reason (probably because the recall election was in a couple days) I decided to directly reference it to Gray Davis.
