The Lyrics

Discussing the election over there, the chap I was speaking to said something like "Can you really see McCain as president?"... and this kind of wrote itself
Someone told me I should care
'Bout th'election over there
I know
Its been goin' for some time.

When its over, there will be
A new president to see
I hope
It's gonna be Obama

'Cause I want to know, can you really see McCain
I want to know, can you really see McCain
As president of th'USA

He's run many times befo'
Yeah, he's old, but that ain't all
I know
He looked old before his time

Came near bottom of his class
And he talks... slow not fas'
But no..
Maybe he'll get in, it's karma

But I want to know, who can ever see McCain
He's too darn slow, who could ever see McCain
As president of th'USA


I'm sorry, no - no, I cannot see McCain
No chance at all.. no, I cannot see McCain
As president of th'USA

Maybe he will win. America is headed to hell in a handbasket.

Absolutely lovely. Very elegantly combines two of my obsessions: song parody and the presidential campaign.
