Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Satire written in April 2000, about Elian Gonzalez and Republican attempts to keep him from reuniting with his Cuban father
(instrumental intro)

These Republicans are all dopes
They're deranged because they say
That the father and child reunion
Should remain an ocean away
Oh... they claim Elian's fine

Is this foreign policy
Just staged for Election Day?
They say they're "pro-family"
But they'd keep the boy's father away

These Republicans are all dopes
They're deranged because they say
That the father and child reunion
Should remain an ocean away
Oh... they claim Elian's fine

I just can't believe this show
It's not so strange to say
That the press whores sank so low
They'd lie in a serious way
And, of course, this in prime time runs
Over and over again

These Republicans are all dopes
They're deranged because they say
That the father and child reunion
Should remain an ocean away
That the father and child reunion
Should remain an ocean away

But the father and child reunion
Is only a moment away
