The Lyrics

I can't believe no one thought of this before. And while John Kerry is right, that Cheney has been more President since day one of the maladministration than Bush, this does not count toward my project of doing parodies of every President. (If, for whatever reason, Cheney does ever become President officially, I've have to write a new one in order for it to qualify. In other words, if Kerry wins, then at noon on January 20, 2005, I'll officially be at least one President behind on my total.)
I still don't know what he is waiting for
and his time is running out.
A million dead-end lies
every time he thought he'd got it made.
It seems his face deserves some pies.
So he turned himself to Leahy
and he's never watched his mouth.
Oh, how the others must see the faker
I'm much too smart to take that test!

Ch-ch-ch-ch-Cheney!
(Turn and face the strange)
Ch-ch-Cheney!
Just wants to be a richer man!
Ch-ch-ch-ch-Cheney!
(Turn and face the strange)
Ch-ch-Cheney!
We're gonna have to have a different man!
Time may change me
but I can't stand Dick!

I watch politicians, these guys
none ever so extreme.
His warm impertinence and
mental haze floats through my eyes
but still the lies are seem the same.
And these people that you curse at
as they try to change their world
are immune to your consultations.
They're quite aware of what is really true!

Ch-ch-ch-ch-Cheney!
(Turn and face the strange)
Ch-ch-Cheney!
Don't tell them to grow up, you're out of it!
Ch-ch-ch-ch-Cheney!
(Turn and face the strange)
Ch-ch-Cheney!
Where's your shame?
You've left us up to our necks in it.
Time may change me
but I can't stand you!

Strange fascination, fascinating me
Cheney is taking the place Gore honored so!

Ch-ch-ch-ch-Cheney!
(Turn and face the strange)
Ch-ch-Cheney!
Oh, look out you rock 'n rollers!
Ch-ch-ch-ch-Cheney!
(Turn and face the strange)
Ch-ch-Cheney!

He'll yell at you if you guys get any bolder!
Time may change me
but I can't stand Dick!
I said that time may change me
But we'll win this time!
