"Nobody Does It Better"

Original Performer:

Carly Simon

Parody Song Title:

"Anybody Would Be Better"

Parody Written by:

Walt Conner

The Lyrics

You asked for it... For the election cycle !!
Anyone would be better
Standing here all set to vote
Someone else would be twice as good as you
You won't get my vote

Babies you're kissing,
While issues you're missing,
You have tried so hard to be brief…
But, like all those before you,
You're full of doo doo,
And you'll always be lying through you're teeth.

So, anyone would be better,
Like maybe the drunk at the bar,
Anyone makes a better choice than you
Why'd you have to get this far ?

The way that you sell lies
Whenever you tell lies
There must be no conscience inside you
So what keeps you running,
Besides all the funding…
How'd you wind up so far from what's true ?

So, anyone would be better,
Standing here in the same boat,
Looking like we are all in the same fix
Hey incumbent…
You don't get our vote !
We'll write in a vote !

nice sarcasm at the generic democratic process, walt - particularly relevant to Aussies who are right in the midst of our election campaign - 555

Anyone would be better than Bush- even Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot or Saddam Hussein. Seriously, I'm voting for Obama unless Stephen Colbert runs for president, in which case I will vote for him. I love political humor, and while reading this parody, I broke down laughing and had to regain my composure to write this. As for this parody, I am voting all 5s.

I like how this parody doesn't reference anyone in particular, so readers can fill in the blanks themselves....really, this could be any current major world leader. Spot on, Walt. 555

p.s. for future reference, it would be "your teeth", not "you're teeth" (I've made that mistake myself at least once) :-)

Andria, you can vote for Steven Colbert, but you'll have to move to South Carolina.

Good political spoofing, here

With what's in the mix for runners I'd say that there are only two things I don't like about any of them and they are both the same thing for all... Their face. Nice execution. Stuffing ballot box with 555 absentee ballots.

Since I suggested this rewrite I gotta weigh in and say...awesome job! No dangling chads here!

What Kristof said, politically... and this is hands-down winner of the "Most Improved" award. Thanks for being a good sport about the criTTique of pacing at "You're Insane" -- and Dude, this time you *nailed* it, and I mean freakin' NAILED it! 555, and reiterate: Welcome to AIR -- now, go take back your "unworthy" comment at my post today.

Kristof Robertson, Walt, and anyone else: No need ever to mistake "your" and "you're"; just consult this handy usage guide: http://www.amiright.com/parody/60s/thebyrds27.shtml

I too echo Kristof on this one... excellent! (and LOL Sisyphus!)

McKludge, why do I have to move to SC to vote for "Coal-bear"? I hate the South and everything that goes with it.
McKludge - October 24, 2007 - Report this comment
Because he's only running for President in South Carolina. http://www.colbert08.org/

Update: Yes, I voted for Obama, and he won (as we all know), so now we don't have a flaming dumb*ss who is only good for comic relief in the White House, embarrassing the whole world.
