The Lyrics

This is a description of the typical low-information voter who knows Obam Hussein is an epic failure and probably an egotistical tyrant, but voted to re-elect him anyway.
Perfect day by the ocean,
Buffett's comin' soon.
I'm waiting in my hammock,
His plane arrives at half past two.
Stood up and went to his concert,
I really didn't have to walk far.
I got thirsty for a margarita
So I stumbled down to Spoelstra's backyard.

Then I drank a hurricane, and then I lost my brain,
A Parrothead woke me up, it was time to vote.
Though they're a bunch of rats, I vote for Democrats
'Cause I don't want Buffett thinking that I missed the boat.


There's something about this Tuesday,
It's a most peculiar day.
Gansgters on the Avenue,
And the cops are MIA.
Electioneering and racketeering,
I knew that I couldn't “vote wrong.”
I watched behind me all the way back home,
Locked all my doors and then I made up this song.

Tea Party's at the polls, tryin' to check the rolls,
Black Panthers tell them all they had better move on.
Though they're a bunch of rats, I vote for Democrats
'Cause I don't want Panthers thinkin' that I'm Uncle Tom.


Well, unemployment is higher now,
Some say it's 16 percent.
There's Eva in the White House
And she's there to see the President.
And then they close the shutters,
God knows what happens next!
Then he “evolves” on gay marriage,
That's a mighty F.O.S. pretext.

She's such a frequent guest, and he fills her requests,
Something tells me he and Eva are having a tryst.
Though they're a bunch of rats, I vote for Democrats
'Cause I don't want Longoria sayin' I'm a chauvinist.
And I want everyone to know that I'm not racist.
