The Lyrics

Is this the real life - Is this just fantasy - Caught in a flip flop - No escape from reality
Open your eyes - Look up to the skies and see - I'm a confused boy, nothing makes sense to me
Because I'm easy come, easy go, first it's yes, then it's no
Anyway the wind blows, doesn't really matter to me... to me

Mama, just changed my mind - Contradicted what I said, now the polls say I am dead
Mama, I just can't decide and now it seems I've thrown it all away
Mama, ooh, didn't mean to change my mind - If I'm not president this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters

Too late, my time has come, the votes will soon be in, looks like Bush is gonna win
Goodbye everybody, I've got to go - Gotta leave you all behind and find the truth
Mama, ooh - I don't want to lie, I sometimes wish I never could talk at all

I see a little silhouetto of a man, Little Bush, Evil Bush, watch me do the fandango
Thinking & deciding, very very frightening to me
Sign or veto, sign or veto, sign or veto, sign or veto, sign or veto - I don't know - which way to go?

I'm a confused boy, no one believes me- He's a confused boy from a rich family
Spare us the plight of his presidency - first it's yes, then it's no, will we ever know
Please tell us! NO, we will not ever know - yes or no - Please tell us! We will not ever know - yes or no
Please tell us! We will not ever know - yes or no - will not ever know -
yes or no - will not ever know - let us know
Oh no, oh no, oh no - Mama mia, mama mia, thoughts are bouncing to & fro
My indecision has really made a fool of me, of me, of me...

Even I wouldn't vote for myself, why did I try - Like a fish outta water I flip flop from side to side
Oh maybe I should just take off to Haiti, get me a piece of turf, then I could windsurf all day

Nothing really matters, anyone can see, nothing really matters, nothing really matters to me
Any way the wind blows....

Some lovely lines (and rhyming "maybe" with "Haiti" made me grin)

Good job ma, great parody. Hey, check out my Electoral Rhapsody from November of 2000. Same principle. You'd probably like it.

Funny parody! Especially funny line: "Even I wouldn't vote for myself"
Robert J. Pagliaro - September 30, 2004 - Report this comment
This was pretty good (despite the fact that it appears you've been drinking the kool-aid given out by those fascist republicans.) And all this time I thoguht that it was Dubya who is doing the flip-flopping.

Good job. They're both useless. As writer Jeff Helprin so aptly put it: Kerry says things he understands but doesn't believe; Bush says things he believes but doesn't understand.
Michael Pacholek - September 30, 2004 - Report this comment
It isn't that Bush doesn't understand what he believes, it's that he continues to believe things that just aren't true. Is it any wonder that the terrorists are praying to Allah for four more years of the dummy? They're scared out of their warped minds that John Kerry -- honest, determined, and competent, all the things Bush has never been, and aware that "decisive" is not a free pass to keep screwing up month after month, year after year -- will win.

Very good parody, I liked the "windsurf" line best.

Just an afterthought I probably should have added as a comment under the title of this song before submitting it ~ I am not a member of either political party, never have been. I have always voted for either the best person for the job or the lesser of two evils, whichever applies to each election. I just couldn't resist with the similarity that existed with the actual lyrics (any way the wind blows) & the things people are stuck on joking about :)

excellent - I loved it. when I figured out how the original tune went for the windsurf verse, it made it so much funnier well done
