The Lyrics

I posted this the day after the election under a pseudonym. Response was generally positive, and I thank all who voted/commented. I'm reposting it for the record.
Dim voters and Bible-thumpin'.
It looks like they're gonna go
For Bush, whom they should be dumpin'.
Brain dead in Ohio.

Why is it they do it?
Dubya is cutting them down,
Should have been dumped long ago.
Collars are blue there,
But no jobs to be found.
Bushwhacked, they still give the vote.

Why-why-why-why-why-why-why-why? (repeat 4 times)

(repeat 2nd verse)

Dim voters and Bible-thumpin'.
It looks like they're gonna go
For Bush, whom they should be dumpin'.
Brain dead in Ohio. (repeat 9 times)

Hey, you're almost as good as that, what-his-name? No Comprendo...or something like that...Seriously, nice work JB. 5's - I happened to have used this song about a year ago in one of my early works to predict that "George Bush would have to go" or some such delusional message like that...oh, well...wishful thinking, gets you every time. BUT...It's only what, 3 years and about 363 days until the NEXT election. We'll get those pesky Repugnicans then, by crackee!

Apparently, Ohio hasn't moved past right-wing nut Woody Hayes' "three yards and a cloud of dust" philosophy. Then again, Georgie Bush is so dumb, he thinks Phil Osophy is some liberal dork at the Boston Globe.

Great title! The OS kept going through my head all week while listening to my boss get razzed about his home state (even though he did not support Bush). - November 14, 2004 - Report this comment
Heh heh. Great title and great sub for "tin soldiers."
