Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

This thing called "gun," he just can't handle it,
This thing called "gun," he wheeled around and fired it.
He is deadly,
Cheney carrying a gun.

This thing (this thing)
Called man (called man)
Don't fly (like a birdy)
No, a man don't take flight.
Shots sting (ow! ow!)
Like hives (ow! ow!)
Appears a puss that's been pocked with pellets.
It's kinda fright'ning--
Cheney carrying a gun.

There goes Dick Cheney. . .
Don't know how to lock and load
Or use the safety.
Now his victim's got a fever
And pellets penetrated his chest.

[short drum solo, sounding like a heartbeat]

Dick, it isn't cool to whack your friends.
Not in the back,
At least, did your shot strike,
But his face looks like it's been honed with spikes.
It is deadly,
Cheney carrying a gun.

This thing called "gun," he just can't handle it.
Is Harry done? Don't look like Cheney really gives a sh*t.
He is deadly,
Cheney carrying a gun. [repeat and fade]

If Dubya's King, is Cheney Queen?

Lots of excellent subsitutions... this one works really well. I guess there's still quite a bit of mileage to be made from this ;-) Maybe I'll have a go myself...

Thanks JD, AFW, Alvin, Phil (I thought I'd milked this one for all it was worth, but there's a song so obvious for the subject matter that I had to crank it out today to submit for tomorrow).

555, you took liberties with the pacing alittle but, if you hadn't, it wouldn't as good as it is. ^___^

LOL "Don't fly (like a birdy)" set me off and I couldnt stop laughing for the rest of the song. Well done and three 5s. I was actually working on a parody of Cheney with another Queen song. lol
