The Lyrics

From the Mexican border to the Oregon line
Unemployment and brownouts, not a positive sign
All the folks on the West Coast, just ain't havin' no fun
They just discovered that their state's gone broke
Something's got to be done

"We're in debt forty billion -
Must be under a curse .
We've had two terms of Davis now
And things keep going from lousy to worse
Make a recall petition - constitutional way
Get a hundred thousand signatures
Wash away that Gray!

Make sure that you vote well, California
So you make your case - chase him in disgrace
Better make sure that you vote well, California
When he's lost the race, who will take his place?

Then they came out of the woodwork and threw their hats in the ring
We got an action figure pretty boy and a pornography king
Lining up at the courthouse, see how they sweat.
Some hard to remember, some you'd like to forget

Make the round of the talk shows, get on Larry King Live
And when they printed ballots there were hundred thirty five
But on the issues none of 'em had much to say
They just want to be Sacramento-bound on Election Day

Make sure that you vote well, California
It's a tragic race at a comic pace
You'd better make sure that you vote well, California
Just a small percent picks your government

Start to get the feeling you might regret this soon
You feel like 'We're all just living inside a political cartoon.'
And in the polling places, when all the votes are in
You gotta try to figure out, hey, did someone really win?

And when it's November, and it's still the same as it was
Nobody likes the new guy now, doesn't matter what he does
Relax, California call it karma, call it zen.
Just arrange another recall vote and do it all again.
