The Lyrics

A pretty weak parody to mark my return to the site. Oh well, it takes time to get into form!
"The Democratic party's dead" she said to me
We lost Congress, the midterms were a tragedy
And though unified is the way we ought to be
There must be fifty guys runnin' 'gainst Dubya
The most important thing is to give Dubya hell
It seems all these candidates can do is fight amoungst themselves
But I repeat myself, so I guess it's just as well
That there are fifty guys runnin' 'gainst Dubya
Fifty guys runnin' 'gainst Dubya
You gotta be slick, Dick. Befriend the press, Wes.
The minority's pal, Al, just listen to me.
Gotta make George Bush gone, John, I don't even care which one!
Beat the machine, Dean, and dethrone the king.
You gotta be slick, Dick. Befriend the press, Wes.
The minority's pal, Al, just listen to me.
Make George Bush gone, John, I don't even care which one!
Beat the machine, Dean, and dethrone the king.

She said "It grieves me so to see the GOP
Controlling Congress, taking charge of issues here and overseas"
I said "I'm so sick of that, I'll have to go and see about those fifty guys..."
I watched the news about the presidental fight
And I decided to watch the "Rock the Vote" special tonight
And then I watched it, and I realized she probably was right, there must be fifty guys runnin' 'gainst Dubya.
Fifty guys runnin' 'gainst Dubya
You gotta be slick, Dick. Befriend the press, Wes.
The minority's pal, Al, just listen to me.
Gotta make George Bush gone, John, I don't even care which one!
Beat the machine, Dean, and dethrone the king.
You gotta be slick, Dick. Befriend the press, Wes.
The minority's pal, Al, just listen to me.
Make George Bush gone, John, I don't even care which one!
Beat the machine, Dean, and dethrone the king.

Not bad Charlie. The chorus was better than the rest and the idea is good and original. Welcome back.

I've been tryin to parody this song for months, and the verses keep on trippin' me up. They're just tough to do...I think anyway. Maybe it's just me. Oh yeah...what was I doing now? Oh yeah...comments on YOUR parody...heheh. Cool idea, gotta love a good anti-Bush song too.
