The Lyrics

Written during the 1996 presidential campaign, when Senator Robert Dole (R-KS) ran against incumbent Bill Clinton, lost the race, retired from the Senate, then became Viagra spokesman. (The Republican convention in 1996 was held in San Diego.) As sung by a Dole supporter:
(piano riff intro)

Just take those war medals off the shelf.
Who knew about them except myself?
Today's candidates ain't got the same soul
I like that hard line Robert Dole

Don't take me out to San Diego
You'll never even get me out through the door
There's only one way to get me to go
If I see hard line Robert Dole

Still like that hard line Robert Dole
His rhetoric just soothes the soul
I reminisce about the days of gold
Give me that hard line Robert Dole

(Instrumental break)

Don't want the G.O.P. to tangle
I'd rather see the popularity poll
The rich get richer and don't pay a toll
I like that hard line Robert Dole

The next president should have some will
To take control over Capitol Hill
The other guys ain't got the same soul
I like that hard line Robert Dole

(repeat chorus and fade)
