The Lyrics

I despise this song. I want the bum out. So why not get 'em both with one parody?
Well, you can tell by the way I hurt the poor
I'm Republican, won't help no more.
Talkin' loud and doin' harm
I've been privileged since I was born.

And now it's all right, it's OK, I'm gonna make the lib'rals pay.
I can't try to understand the New York Times, I'm stupid, man!

Didn't need my brother, I'm elected like no other.
Now I'm tellin' a lie, tellin' a lie.
Taxes are a-cuttin' and I'm really helpin' somethin'.
Now I'm tellin' a lie, tellin' a lie.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, tellin' a lie, tellin' a lie.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, tellin' a liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiie...

Well now, I get low and I get high
and I make a million Iraqis die.
Who cares if you're in poverty?
I found Saddam's WMD.

And now it's all right, it's OK, if Osama lives another day.
I can't try to understand the New York Times, I'm stupid, man!

Didn't need my brother, I'm elected like no other.
Now I'm tellin' a lie, tellin' a lie.
Taxes are a-cuttin' and I'm really helpin' somethin'.
Now I'm tellin' a lie, tellin' a lie.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, tellin' a lie, tellin' a lie.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, tellin' a liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiie...

I'm goin' somewhere, gone back to Crawford
be re-elected yeah!
I'm goin' somewhere, gone back to Crawford
be re-elected yeah!
I'm tellin' a lie!

Well, you can tell by the way I hurt the poor
I'm Republican, won't help no more.
Talkin' loud and doin' harm
I've been privileged since I was born.

And now it's all right, it's OK, I'm gonna make the lib'rals pay.
I can't try to understand the New York Times, I'm stupid, man!

Didn't need my brother, I'm elected like no other.
Now I'm tellin' a lie, tellin' a lie.
Taxes are a-cuttin' and I'm really helpin' somethin'.
Now I'm tellin' a lie, tellin' a lie.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, tellin' a lie, tellin' a lie.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, tellin' a liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiie...

I'm goin' somewhere, gone back to Crawford
be re-elected yeah!
I'm goin' somewhere, gone back to Crawford
be re-elected yeah!
I'm tellin' a lie!
(repeat 'til fade)
And I will repeat it until Georgie fades.

I agree with your assessment of "Stayin' Alive," but not with your assessment of Bush. A very well constructed parody although most of the logic is wrong. And are you praising or poking fun at Bush for not understanding the former employer of Jayson Blair?
Michael Pacholek - June 20, 2003 - Report this comment
I would rather be associated with the employer of Jayson Blair than with the employer of Bill O'Reilly, or anyone else on Fox (Faux) News. At least Blair admitted that he lied, and far fewer people saw it. Still, more people saw it than would have had it appeared in Bill Oh Really's other employer, the New York Post.
