The Lyrics

After being sorely disappointed in the US election and terrified for the country's future, I am seriously considering emigration from here to Sweden--though I thought a protest parody was in order while I try to get myself qualified to live there.
Is this the best life
Is this a travesty
Won by a landslide
Bush's hate a reality
Opened my eyes
Should take to the skies and flee
Can't trust the war-boy
He'll get no sympathy
I thought, "What he's become
needs to go"
Fears are high,
spirits low
Anyway, his win blows
Future really matters
To me, to me

Mama
He'll kill me, man
Martial law, he'll lose his head
"You're not with me, so you're dead"
Mama
Reich has just begun
Seems now, I'd gone and thrown my vote away
Mama...oooh...
Didn't need to make us die
I won't be back again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on
Future really matters

Too late
The time has come
Sends shivers up my spine
New threats waiting all the time
Goodbye, everybody--I've got to go,
Got to leave this land behind, and that's the truth
Mama...oooh...
I ain't gonna lie,
I sometimes wish this weren't my home at all

I see a little more vendetta from the man
(Dubya Bush, Dubya Bush--got to flee the man's plan, go!)
Bluster from the right wing--very, very fright'ning me!
Hellish day, oh (Hellish day, oh)
Hellish day, oh (Hellish day, oh)
Hellish day with Bush and Rove,
Horrific--nooo!

I'm just a poor girl, so Dubya snubs me
She's just a poor girl, scorns the war mightily,
scared for her life with this monstrosity!
What he's become needs to go--will you let me go?
_Till Sverige!_ No, we will not let you go
(Let her go!) _Till Sverige!_ We will not let you go
(Let her go!) _Till Sverige!_ We will not let you go
(Let me go!) Will not let you go!
(Let me go!) Will not let you go! (Let me go!) Ah,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
Authorities, authorities won't let me go
They'll tell the Shrub--what a devil of a time for me, for me, for me

So Bush thinks he can own me and spit in my eye
So he thinks he can snub me and leave me to die
No, crazy...can't do this to me, crazy...
Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here.


Future really matters, anyone can see--
Future really matters,
Future really matters to me.

Anyway, his win blows!
If you couldn't figure it out from the context, _till Sverige_ means "to Sweden" in their language--and in this case, the word _Sverige_ needs to be sung as two syllables to fit the pacing.

Bravo!

Try to look on the bright side: Arafat's about to say "ce n'est par la vie" in Paris. The cockroach keeps hanging on. The conflicting reports earlier today reminded me of the Monty Python bit in "Holy Grail": "Not dead yet!"

This song, with all its memorable phrases and overall lack of rhyme scheme, is often butchered beyond comprehension. Not this time. Though I think it is a good example of the way people are overreacting and putting too much importance on what government does (my costume party parody was almost "Who Wants To Flee Now?"), this was very well written.

Thanks for the comments so far, guys! Although I'd wanted to live in Sweden even before 9/11 or the war (let alone the unfavorable election results), I admit that the political climate here probably won't get any friendlier for poor, anti-war, non-Christian types like me. Those fears did inspire my parody, though they're not the only thing motivating me to leave.

Great job, Ingebordén. I particularly like your sub for "thunderbolts and lightning." But don't move to Sweden - move to Florida or Ohio where you can do some good.

I appreciate the sentiment, Spaff; still, I have felt I belonged in Sweden long before the election fiascos (either of them) took place. Perhaps now that the political situation in the US is falling apart, the Swedes might take my request for residency a bit more seriously.
