The Lyrics

New Candidate in Town

There's talk on Wall Street; it sounds so familiar
Great expectations, everybody's watching him
People he meets, they all want to know him
Even his old friends treat him like someone new.

John Kerry lately, new candidate in town
Everybody loves him, but will he let us down?

We look in his eyes; hear words he begins to say
Hopeless semantics, here we go again
But after a while, we're listenin' another way
It's our foolish hearts that never bend.

Oh, oh, John Kerry lately, new candidate in town
Will we still love him when he's not around?

There's so many things we should have told him,
But night after night we willingly sold him,
Just sold him, videoed with soldiers.

There's talk on Wall Street, it's there to
Remind us, it doesn't really matter
which side we're on.
He's walking away and we're gawking behind him
Hey, we'll never forget him till somebody new comes along.

Where's Kerry been lately? A new candidate's in town
Everybody loves him, don't we?
Now we're selling him, but Kerry's still around
Oh, my, my.
A new candidate's in town
Just another new candidate's in town
Ooh, hoo
Everybody's talking 'bout the new candidate in town
Ooh, hoo
Everybody's gawking at the new candidate in town
A new candidate's in town
He don't want to hear it
A new candidate's in town
He don't want to hear it
A new candidate's in town
A new candidate's in town
A new candidate's in town

Everybody's talking 'bout the new candidate in town
Ooh, hoo
Everybody's gawking at the new candidate in town
A new candidate's in town
A new candidate's in town
A new candidate's in town
