The Lyrics

Satire about the current shortage of flu vaccine in the U.S. because the two sole manufacturers are now located in Britain and France, and the Bush admnistration's inattention bungled preparations against a domestic shortage - now proving to be a headache for the Bush campaign trying to get votes from senior citizens. As sung by irate senior citizens in the "blue" states:
(instrumental intro)

We can't get flu... vaccinations.
We can't get flu... vaccinations,
Though we try, and we try, and we try, and we try...
We can't get no... (instrumental riff)
We can't get no... (instrumental riff)

Inattention by the czar...
Shortage blamed on Bush, he's facing woe.
Bush keeps selling us "War! More war!"
His inept administation,
We should fire and free the nation.
We can't get no... (instrumental riff)
Oh, no, no, no... (drum riff)
Bush will pay!
That's what we say!

We can't get flu... vaccinations.
We can't get flu... vaccinations,
Though we try, and we try, and we try, and we try...
We can't get no... (instrumental riff)
We can't get no... (instrumental riff)

When we watched Bush on TV,
In debates, flopped 'gainst John Kerry.
Bush is lightweight as can be.
He's no leader, this man; he is such a joke.
"Fear more 'terra' threats!" said he.
We can't get no... (instrumental riff)
Oh, no, no, no...(drum riff)
Bush will pay!
That's what we say!

We can't get flu... vaccinations.
We can't get flu... vaccinations,
Though we try, and we try, and we try, and we try...
We can't get no... (instrumental riff)
We can't get no... (instrumental riff)

Only two places in the world
Now make flu vaccine; hope we do not catch
Flu this time; hope Bush gets hurled.
Our doctors tell us, "Better come back, later when weak,
'Cause your chance of a flu shot now is bleak."
We can't get no... (instrumental riff)
Oh, no, no, no... (drum riff)
Bush will pay!
That's what we say!

We can't get no... we can't get no...
We can't get flu vaccinations.
No vaccinations... no vaccinations... no vaccinations...
