The Lyrics

On a warm summer's evening, with our land bound for nowhere
on TV was the Bumbler, and his speech put me to sleep.
And I lay down to dreamin', was enveloped by the darkness.
Then the pizza overtook me, and I heard him speak.

He said, "Mike, I've made a life out of reading people's faces
of knowing what they're drinking by the blood that's in their eyes.
And if you don't mind me saying, my war's gonna find new places.
That's what I hear from Cheney, from Rumsfeld and from Rice."

Well, I handed him my ballot, and it made him gulp and swallow.
He's a bum, with cigarettes' and guns' lobbies he's tight.
And the night got deathly quiet, and his face looked mighty hollow.
I said, "Georgie, you have lost the game, because you're too far-right.

You gotta know Democratic guys give you static.
Trade Center's blown away, you should not have run.
You went and blew our money, as a leader, you're not able.
And it won't be Jeb that's counting, soon your term is done.

Every bumbler knows that the secret to surviving
is knowing daddy's friends will stay, your payroll spot they'll keep.
'Cause you think you're a winner, the world knows you're a loser.
And a Democrat will beat you with his liberal Veep."

And when I'd finished speakin', he turned back towards the window
crushed was his mood, you bet, and faded from my sleep.
And somewhere in the darkness, our country, it broke even.
And in 2005 we'll have an ace that we can keep.

You gotta know Democratic guys give you static.
Trade Center's blown away, you should not have run.
You went and blew our money, as a leader, you're not able.
And it won't be Jeb that's counting, soon your term is done.

You gotta know Democratic (Democratic!)
guys give you static. (Give you static!)
Trade Center's blown away, you should not have run.
You went and blew our money, as a leader, you're not able.
And it won't be Jeb that's counting, soon your term is done.

You gotta know Democratic guys give you static.
Trade Center's blown away, you should not have run.
You went and blew our money, as a leader, you're not able.
And it won't be Jeb that's counting, soon your term is done.

Can't wait to see the comments on this one =) You did a great writing job on this one (I agree with your political views on this one, so I don't have anything interesting to say).

An appropriate song. Easy to gamble when it's your daddy's money and other people's lives.
