The Lyrics

(John Kerry)
I pulled into Washington, just thinkin' 'bout what Bush said
I think we'd be better, if I was at this country's head
Uncle Sam, can you tell me, are my pop'lar votes ahead?
He just grinned and shook my hand, "No" was all he said.

Take a load off, Kerry, guess you didn't win
Take a load off, Kerry,
And they voted Bush right back in

(John Kerry again, November 3rd)
I picked up my bags, and walked away with my pride
Then I called old Bush and Cheney, walking side by side
I said, "Hey, George, Congrats, you shot me down"
He said, "You gotta go, but I guess I'll stick around"

Take a load off, Kerry, guess you didn't win
Take a load off, Kerry,
And they voted Bush right back in

(Dick Cheney)
Calm down, John Edwards, ain't nothin' you can say
It's just politics, might lead to the judgement day
"Hell, Cheney, you Dick! we've lost it! Can't you see?"
He said, "We don't have to worry, son, George Bush is running the country."

Take a load off, Kerry, guess you didn't win
Take a load off, Kerry,
And they voted Bush right back in

(Saddam Hussein)
Little Dubya followed me, and he caught me in Iraqi sand
Said, "We've got your oil! So forget Afghanistan!"
I said, "Wait a minute Dubya, you know I ain't the Taliban!"
He said, "That's ok, boy, you're still not Republican."

Take a load off, Kerry, guess you didn't win
Take a load off, Kerry,
And they voted Bush right back in

(Osama Bin Laden)
Crashed the aero-planes, that took a lot of lives
Make 'em bow real low, behead them all with knives
It's tough luck, Mr. Kerry, you might've been the only one
To make a difference...oh well. Election's done.

Take a load off, Kerry, guess you didn't win
Take a load off, Kerry,
And they voted Bush right back in

Clever job, Sync. 5's...

Kerry shouldn't be too upset. He's just as rich as George, so I'm sure he'll continue to live comfortably in a nation that favors and is controlled by the rich. Anyway, he made a nice try at replacing our pathetic leader...

I love the original song...you did it great justice by writing about a great injustice.

You're an idiot! How can you destroy a great song for the selfish vommiting of your pathetic political agenda? You should be ashamed of yourself!!!!!!!!!!

Hey, I was just trying to figure out who did the original song! Did a web search and ended up here. I heard it recently on a TV commercial & I guessed Van Morrisson. Wasn't too far off I guess.

Well, I guess that Kerry got the weight lifted off and dumped it on Bush. Thank goodness for America! I think it would have been enough to sink Johnboy and taken the US with him.
