The Lyrics

Darrell Issa spent nearly two million dollars to gather enough signatures for the recall. Now he's out of the race and so is Bill Simon. In the latest polls, the number of Republicans who are afraid Arnold will win now roughly equals the number who are afraid he will lose.
Big deal on the West Coast
Could become a future trend
Conan wants be the gov'nuh
The Terminator's back again, I hate to see 'im

Pete Ueberroth, Cruz Bustamante
There's Gary Coleman, three foot four
Ariana Huffington the pundit
And Larry Flynt who peddles porn (but no Al Gore)

Recall California
Where Gray's skies are so blue
Re-vote California
Let's redo 2002

The Legislature passed a budget, boo-hoo-hoo
Our local funding sure got screwed
If Enrongate didn't pull our plug
Then Bush's tax cut just might do, tell the truth

Recall California
Where Gray's skies are so blue
Re-vote California
Let's redo 2002

In all the polls from north to southland
It's been shown to be a bonkers zoo
With Bustamante in the lead now
Think Darrell Issa's feelin' blue? How 'bout you?

Recall California
Where Gray's skies are so blue
Re-vote California
Let's redo 2002
ęBob Gomez 2003

Not saying I agree with your politics but I think you wrote a good parody.

You left out the most competent candidate - Tom McClintock - I know, not an easy name to rhyme and/or pace - but very good parody.

Songs about the California recall are totally inappropriate, so I can give this no better than 5's.

nice try, but Cruz didn't win, Bush's tax cuts will not do us in, and i doubt Gray's California skies are all that blue

I remember when I was faced with a choice between two bad candidates in California back in 1986. I chose to leave the state. Anybody remember George Deukmejian? I didn't think so.
