The Lyrics

...Well, one of 'em, anyways. When you go out and vote, vote wisely, for a vote for the right person will bring us life, the wrong one will take it from us. Okay, so maybe it's not that extreme, but vote wisely noetheless & enjoy the parody. DKTOS? (Don't Know The Original Song?)
When I vote for the next president,
Gonna make sure that my vote’s well spent.
If we vote wrong, then we’ll die.
Hope ya vote for the right woman or guy!*

Hope ya vote for the right woman or guy,
(Woman or guy)
If we vote the wrong way, then we’ll die!
(Then we’ll die)
When we vote, we don’t want a darn pest,
We wanna vote for the one who’s the best!

Prepare yourself, ‘cause knowing’s a must,
And knowledge is a thing that don’t rust.
Just to make sure we don’t die,
I recommend ya vote for the right woman or guy!

Recommend ya vote for the right woman or guy,
(Woman or guy)
If we vote the wrong way, then we’ll die!
(Then we’ll die)
When we vote, we don’t want a darn pest,
We wanna vote for the one who’s the best!

[Guitar solo]

Now I am a voter, I’m gonna vote,
I got my mind all made up.
Just to make sure we don’t die,
I’m gonna go and vote for the right woman or guy!

Gonna go and vote for the right woman or guy,
(Woman or guy)
If we vote the wrong way, then we’ll die!
(Then we’ll die)
When we vote, we don’t want a darn pest,
We wanna vote for the one who’s the best!
Vote for the one who’s best!
*-I know Hillary's not running, but one of the third party candidates is a woman.

This is your third Election parody I'm responding to! I love the OS and your song! Extreme or not, you made an excellent point! I totally agree with your point of view. Your parodies are great for Election '08. You sure know what you're talking about! 555!!!

Dylan, not only is this parody funny and fully deserving of 5's straight across, I know who the third-party candidate that you are mentioning is. Her name is Cynthia McKinney, she is a member of the Pacific Green Party, and although this fact has been greatly overshadowed by Barack Obama, she is not only a woman, but she is also African-American, which makes even more history but is quite obscure and will probably remain so for all eternity. Oh, by the way, I voted for Obama.
