The Lyrics

about California and its current Governer race
It looks like Grey's campaign is dead, they all agree
and they think they can succeed by running up, you see
seems after Arnold, all the actors wanna be
one of those, 50 Candidates for Gov'ner

it seems that they make a habit to intrude
furthermore, I think their meaning is much lost and misconstrued
and they'll submit themselves at the risk of being Crude
there must be, 50 Candidates for Gov'ner
50 candidates for Gov'ner

just pass a new act, Jack
Submit a new plan, Stan
create up a ploy, Roy
just to win that seat
think up some stuff, Gus
this job isn't too tuff
just make people see, Lee
you just want that seat

just pass a new act, Jack
Submit a new plan, Stan
create up a ploy, Roy
just to win that seat
think up some stuff, Gus
this job isn't too tuff
just make people see, Lee
you just want that seat

they say it seems to go that Davis lost the race
all think there's something they could do to make some money again
wont get nominated, and they're gonna take the pain
spent their 50k's

they said I hope we get more votes on that election night
but then come next morning, they just will not see the light
lost all their money, and they realize that they just were not so right
there must be 50 Candidates for Gov'ner
50 Candidates for Gov'ner

just pass a new act, Jack
Submit a new plan, Stan
create up a ploy, Roy
just to win that seat
think up some stuff, Gus
this job isn't too tuff
just make people see, Lee
you just want that seat

just pass a new act, Jack
Submit a new plan, Stan
create up a ploy, Roy
just to win that seat
think up some stuff, Gus
this job isn't too tuff
just make people see, Lee
you just want that seat

And yet, the nearer his destination, the more Arnold's slip-slidin' away. He's Cruzin' for a bruisin'.

Arnold = pumped-up RINO. He really should have run as a Democrat, that way he'd get away with his obvious womanizing. I mean ol' Katie should be fawning over this guy, not labeling him a Nazi just because his dad was one of those scumbags. Oh wait, this is about a song here; I thought it was good.

I tried to see if there was 50 ways to give you a five, but I did the math and I only came up with like six. Nice parody.

50? I thought more like 300-something... Still a good parody, though ;-).

Hey Alex, does that make Joe Lieberman a DINO? A Democrat In Name Only?

Bravo! You get 5-5-5s from me. That adds up to 15, more votes than Arnold should get...
