The Lyrics

2002: Doug Forrester wins the Republican nomination for U.S. Senator from New Jersey on a platform of "I'm not Bob Torricelli." When Torricelli drops out of the race, Forrester has nothing to say, and loses to former Senator Frank Lautenberg. 2004: Forrester announces he's running for Governor next year, on a platform of "I'm not Jim McGreevey." Then McGreevey resigns. 2005: With Senator Jon Corzine his opponent, Forrester runs on a platform of "I'm not a corrupt Democrat." Corzine runs a commercial with a picture of Forrester and George W. Bush smiling together, and Corzine wins by 200,000 votes (54 to 43 percent). 2006: Corzine's Senate seat is open. Hmmmm...
Down around the corner
half a mile from here
see Doug running for Governor
'gainst Jimmy Mac the queer!
Without votes
where will he be now?
Without votes!

He battled Toricelli
without having much to say.
The Torch dropped out and Lautenberg
he blew ol' Doug away!
Without votes
where will he be now?
Without votes!

The Illinois-born Corzine
won over Garden State.
Doug runs some ads so slimy
but looks like it's too late!
Without votes
where WILL he be right now?
Now now now?
Without votes!

(instrumental break)

The Illinois-born Corzine
won over Garden State.
Doug runs some ads so slimy
but looks like it's too late!
Without votes
where will he be right now?
Without votes!

When the voters keep on clicking
Doug's luck won't turn around!
Maybe he can call Dubya
a Cabinet seat come down?
Without votes
where will he be now?

Without vohhhh-wohhhh-wotes!
Where will he be now?

Mmmmmmmm!
Keep on losin'!
New Jersey and Blue: Perfect together!
