The Lyrics

Yeah, I know, Kerry's still gotta get through the primaries against those heavyweights Howard Dean, John Edwards, and Joe Lie-berman. If Lieberman is a Democrat, then I'm the center fielder for the Yankees. But Kerry vs. Bush? That debate will make Bartlet vs. Ritchie (on "The West Wing") look like Ali vs. Frazier!
When I was just a boy, and Richard Nixon called my name
I said, Who do, who do you think you're foolin'?
I'm a Democratic boy, in tradition, Kennedy.
My mama loves me, she loves me.
Into the voting booth, she shoves me.
You got a head just like a rock!
Against that head the U.S. rages, they're with me.
They're with me, with me, with me, with me.

When I was grown to be a man, and Ronald Reagan called my name
I said, Who do, who do you think you're foolin'?
I'm a heart-a-bleedin' man, take on the G...O.P.
My mama loves me, she loves me.
And if I vote for you, she'll slug me.
You got a head just like a rock!
Against that head the U.S. rages, they're with me.
They're with me, with me, with me, with me.

Now Georgie Bush is "President," and he cannot spell my name.
I say, Who do, who do you think you're foolin'?
The last election you did steal, blew our prosperity.
Here comes John Kerry, John Kerry.
He'll beat you and we'll all be merry.
You got a head just like a rock!
Against that head the whole world rages, they're with me.
They're with me, with me, with me, with me.
(repeat 'til fade)

Don't feel so bad, Georgie. Lots of people can't spell "Pacholek." No need to have a "nucular" meltdown over it. I took a little license here: Nixon resigned when I was four, and my parents actually voted for him the first time he was elected. But not the second time.

P-A-C-H-O-L-E-K. Hey, _I_ can do it! (And I didn't look, honest). And now I suddenly have a desire to write "Left Wing is a Crock".... :-D But I liked it - very clever lyrics (I particularly liked 'if I vote for you she'll slug me') and it kept me laughing. 5's all the way!

Michael: 2 strong parodies out yesterday and 3 more today - how do you do it?? Again, your politics have room for improvement, but your creativity and humor are excellent! I, too, look forward to a John Kerry candidacy - the name is easy to rhyme and he has some parody potential!

"Kerry" has parody potential? As in "Kerry me back to old Virginia"? I've already done "Kerry beat that wayward son." How about, "Oy, but for John Kerry we'll wait, for Kerry we'll wait a long time!" "Eat, drink, and vote Kerry, or tomorrow we may die!" Now look what ya did, Joh, ya got me started! As Mel Brooks taught us, not being funny is the only real sin.

You're too kind -- I think it's 'Michael' that GB would have trouble with. Even 'Mike' for that matter. But no matter... I did like that variation on the line. Very nice job!
