The Lyrics

well, i was an addled boy (was quite an addled boy)
and the teachers would call my name (was quite an addled boy)
they'd say...you stooge, you (ooh)
why do you shrink from schoolin' ? (was quite an addled boy)
you ain't concentratin', boy (was quite an addled bo-o-o-oy)
don't you know that there's smarts required ?

lord, i'm just a dummy...a dummy
the grades that i received were crummy
oh...i'm dumber than a rock
its shocking how my block's so hazy
a dummy...a dummy, dummy, dummy, dummy

well, i got dumber as a man (dumber as a man)
yeah, my level would bring me shame (dumber as a man)
they'd say...you stooge, you (ooh)
why are you thickly droolin' ?...(dumber as a man)
not an educated man (dumber as a ma-a-a-an)
i'm a man of insecurity

lord, i'm just a dummy...a dummy
the IQ that i have is crummy
oh...i'm dumber than a rock
its shocking how my block's so hazy
a dummy...a dummy, dummy, dummy, dummy

but yet i'm now the president (now the president)
although the party had rigged the game (now the president)
they say...you stooge, you (ooh)
why's your regime so gruelin' ? (why has it been so gruelin' ?)
i'm just a presidential schmiel (now the president)
i've brought the presidency odium

lord, i'm just a dummy...a dummy
approval rate is pretty crummy
oh...i'm dumber than a rock
its shocking how my block's so hazy
a dummy...a dummy, dummy, dummy, dummy

a dummy, dummy, dummy, dummy (dumber than a rock)
a dummy, dummy, dummy, dummy (dumber than a rock)
a dummy, dummy, dummy, dummy (dumber than a rock)

I was expecting a finish that reseoved to Forrest Gump, but what I got was even better. And what better proof can there be than the Bush Admin. that "sh*t happens"? :-)
