The Lyrics

So I'd like to know where
You got the notion
So I'd like to know where
You got the notion
To Rock the Vote!
(Don't rock the vote, rabble!)
Rock the Vote!
(Don't take us from office!)
Rock the Vote!
(Don't rock the vote, rabble!)
Rock the Vooooooooooote!

Clinton made the balanced budget, sure.
He made that budget on the backs of the poor.
And still, we, the Bushies, hate the stability.
There's always been a proper place to deepen poverty.

Our rule is like a yacht on the ocean.
We've been sailing with agendas full of
Greed and demotion!

So I'd like to know where
You got the notion
So I'd like to know where
You got the notion
To Rock the Vote!
(Don't rock the vote, rabble!)
Rock the Vote!
(Don't take us from office!)
Rock the Vote!
(Don't rock the vote, rabble!)
Rock the Vooooooooooote!

Up to now we've replayed Desert Storm.
And we'll always have the Mideast oil to keep us warm.
Oh, we need to have the pow'r to profiteer.
Don't take it all away from us in this election year!

Our rule is like a yacht on the ocean.
We've been sailing with agendas full of
War and commotion!

So I'd like to know where
You got the notion
So I'd like to know where
You got the notion
Yeah, I'd like to know where
You got the notion
Yeah, I'd like to know where
You got the notion
To Rock the Vote!
(Don't rock the vote, rabble!)
Rock the Vote!
(Don't take us from office!)
Rock the Vote!
(Don't rock the vote, rabble!)
Rock the Vote!
(Don't take us from office!)
Rock the Vote!
(Stay home with your bad vote!)
Rock the Vote!
(Stay home with your bad vote!)
Rock the Vote!
(Stay home with your bad vote!)
Rock the Vote!
(Stay home with your bad vote!)
Oh yeah, oh yeah...
