The Lyrics

The campaign trail, that is. Oy, oy, Joe, another one bites the dust.
Goodbye to you, Richard Gephardt.
This is the second time you've played this part.
New Hampshire hills, Iowa trees.
And from sea to shining seas, you ripped all those GOPs.
Goodbye, Gephardt, it's hard to quit
when we're still stuck with that right-wing Bush twit
now that the spring is in the air.
Lots of voters everywhere.
But not enough for you did care.

We went out, we set sail
for a season on the trail
but the hills that we climbed
don't get cover of the TIME.

Goodbye, Joe Lieberman, you mensch.
You'd like to start, now you are on the bench.
You tried to teach us right from wrong
criticized each film and song
but your road show gets a gong.
Goodbye to Joe, it's hard to quit
when Georgie Bush still leaves you in a snit
now that the spring is in the air.
Little children everywhere
go and teach them if you dare.

We went out, we set sail
for a season on the trail
but the whine about wrong
means supporters are all gone.
We went out, we set sail
for a season on the trail
but the whine about wrong
means supporters are all gone.

Goodbye to Doctor Howard Dean.
Talking about Bush, you get really mean.
And this I do appreciate.
But on our nerves you really grate.
Now you're doomed to loser's fate.
Goodbye, Howard, now you should quit.
Your angry rhetoric just did not fit
now that the spring is in the air.
You've been losing everywhere.
But Kerry wins, I think that's fair.

We went out, we set sail
for a season on the trail
but the way you do screech
sounds like whales stuck on a beach.
We went out, we set sail
for a season on the trail
but the way you do screech
sounds like whales stuck on a beach.
We went out, we set sail
for a season on the trail
but the whine about wrong
means supporters are all gone.
We went out, we set sail
for a season on the trail
but the whine about wrong
means supporters are all gone.
We went out, we set sail
for a season on the trail
but the hills that we climbed
don't get cover of the TIME.

I'm a strong supporter of President Bush (even though I voted for Gore), so that's why I usually don't ever condone or comment on Bush bashing parodies, but this one mostly bashed the bleeding heart Dems so.....all 5's!!! And yeah.....I'm from Massachusetts, and no not everyone here is in love with Mr. Kerry. :)

Goodbye Al Sharpton it was fun. Your pointed jabs made stuffed shirts cringe and run. You let them know about folks brown. Though you're basically a clown, you were fun to have around.

I want to know how a guy from New Jersey can write about spring being in the air. Good parody, though, even though Howard Dean has made the cover of Time magazine.

I think President-elect Kerry should hire Rev. Al as one of his speech writers. Nice work, as always.

Jackie Mason told me you should get 5's - or I'll get fingers (Ed Sullivan inside-joke). I'm still not sure what it is about Dubya that you find "right wing". Ronald Reagan (Happy Birthday, Gipper!) was a true conservative. President Bush was the better man to have in office during 9/11(I shudder to think of how Algore would have handled it). But, domestically George may be left of Joe Lieberman (I agree with you: Joe IS a mensch). Anyway, liked the parody a lot more than the original. LOL

Johnny: Dems have bleeding hearts because you can't get blood from a heart of stone. John: It's been 50 degrees in NJ since that damn groundhog saw his shadow. As Michael J. Fox would say, Since when can a groundhog predict the weather, let alone the future. David: Reagan was born on February 6, but so was Babe Ruth, so that day breaks even. Reagan was neither true nor conservative, he was a lying right-wing fool, and the only thing that makes him look good is what the Republicans have put up since. You shudder because Gore would have understood airport security and then the GOP wouldn't have 9/11 to run on, because 9/11 would've been a slow news day. And Lieberman isn't really a mensch, he's a yenta. At least now I don't have to write a parody solely about him, and we can toss the man who, at least until January 20, is the rightfully-elected Vice President into the dustbin of history. Gore never should have taken him, or else he REALLY would have won.

Michael, the difference is, I do consider carefully what the Dems have to say. The best political system I know is where one party balances the other. We need you Democrats. I doubt Howie Dean would have been so entertaining, had he been a Republican. Didn't know that Feb. 6th was the Babe's birthday, too. Very cool. Two great men with the same birstday.

Michael, I keep seeing how it's been 50 degrees in the "Theft State" (Giants, Jets, Nets, Home of Baseball, Frank Sinatra, the Statue of Liberty) since they woke up the rat, we're a little cooler on the other side of the river. If the election wasn't stolen, the events of September 11 would never have happened. With all due respect David - really, I live in NYC and I can't possibly convey to you how our lives have changed since that day - we live every day in fear now but life goes on because there's not a damn thing we can do.
