The Lyrics

John Kerry:

I want you to want me
I'd like you to like me
I want to to trust me
I'm beggin' you to pick me
I want you to want meI want you to want me
I'd like you to like me
I want to to trust me
I'll perk up my old long face
Take on a whole new stance
Do some actual work
If you say that you'll pick me
Didn't you, didn't you, didn't you see him lyin'
Oh, didn't you, didn't you, didn't you see him lyin'
Talking so, so tough without a clue, you know people are dying

George W. Bush:

I want you to want me
I'd like you to like me
I want you to trust me
I'm beggin' you to keep me
I'll go see a NASCAR race
Put on an old flight suit
Do some actual work
If you say that you'll keep me
Didn't you, didn't you, didn't you see him wafflin'
Oh, didn't you, didn't you, didn't you see him wafflin'
Talkin, so, so high without a clue, you know he'll leave us cryin'
Didn't you, didn't you, didn't you see him wafflin'

Ralph Nader:

I want you to want me
I'd like to to watch me
I need you to save me
I want you to consider me

All three:

I want you to want me
I want you to want me
I want you to want me
I want you to want me

Hi there. I wrote this parody, and I'm glad you guys like it. Sorry I make a few mistakes; I printed the 5th line twice and forgot to add the end of the Kerry part.

Great political parody, I totally agree with it politically! I surely didn't vote to re-elect Bush or even elect Ralph Nader, I'm a democrat and voted for John Kerry. I'm fed up with Bush and I see you didn't put much for Nader. Check out my dirty parody of the original song on whatfreaks.com.
