The Lyrics

Let's hope that voters take the advice in this song in November 2004
Do you recall all the pledges I made just four years ago
A uniter, not divider, I'm no partisan clone
Please vote for me 'cause I'll change the tone
Now that it's clear that my words were untrue
Will you show me the door?
Do you still believe me or will you relieve me
In 2004

You'll know what to do
And when you vote me out
Guess I can't blame you

Recall when I said I'd leave no child behind
I guess I changed my mind
Luckily I bribed you with my tax cut con
The rich got richer, soon the surplus was gone
Prosperity replaced by unemployment and debt
Who could ask for more?
It may take amnesia for me to still please ya
In 2004

If re-elected I could cut your taxes even more if I could persuade
So your woes go on
The same lovable characters on my team
Condi, Dick, and Don

I said nation building wasn't part of my plans
Let's focus here at home
But then I turned my sights on Saddam Hussein
Invented Operation "Ready, Fire, Aim"
I labeled my foes unpatriotic and weak
Although my plan was poor
Will you still believe me or will you relieve me
In 2004

Great line there: "Ready, Fire, Aim"...I think you just summed up what war really is.

The pacing was off, but then, the narrator was Our Fearless Appointed Leader With a Purpose, so I can't penalize you for it! (LOL)
