The Lyrics

I can see that all you do looks wrong to me.
You never seem to try to think
Of anything beyond your own wealth.
Koliforneea’s in bad health; you’re on your throne
While the state goes down the toilet; and on you drone.

Arnie, what you gonna do
Now that you’ve really up screwed?
I will smile when gone from the scene are you.

One thing’s sure: the time is right for us to find
A new and clear-thinking gov’nor, and to boot the slime:
The Assembly
And the Senate, each an army of ant drones.
Whether left or right, no matter—they’re all clones
Each one bogus and phony.

Army, what you gonna do
Now that you’ve really up screwed?
I will smile when gone from the scene are you.

[special-election interlude]

Well now,
Smarmy is this whole darn crew.
I think we need something new,
Not as vile and who won’t give us the screw.

Wasting time and dough, they haunt us every day.
Arnie, you’ve had more than for years to save us after Gray.*
But we can see
That we’re deeper in debt than we were when he
Got recalled way back in two thousand and three;
Well, you weren’t our savior, Arnie.

Arnie, what you gonna do
Now you’ve really screwed up, dude?
I will smile when gone from the scene are you.

Yeah now,
Army, what you gonna do?
Bad news, and got a bad ’tude.
I will smile when gone from the scene are you.

F**kups right and left, a clueless crew,
F**kups right and left, a useless crew,
Don’t know what we’re gonna do, debt’s deep.
Fallen is this once great state—we’re screwed.


*Governor Gray Davis, recalled in 2003, in part of because of budget problems, which pale in comparison to the fiscal fiasco that Arnie and the current crop of crooks, cronies, and incompetents in the state legislature have engendered.

Guvernator can't seem to handle this one. Watch yourself, John, if you hear "I'll be back" behind you.
