"Lose Like Adlai"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

No, there won't be a "Presidential Losers Parody Project." But I'm still mad at John Kerry for not going after the son of a Bush harder. Just once, couldn't he have said, "Jesus loves gay people"?
(guitar opening)

Well, did you lose like Adlai?
Not quite Mondale badly?
With your real long face
not enough blue States?

Well, did you lose like Adlai?
Like Dukakis, sadly?
You could not save face.
Did you blow it in the year two thousand four?
Like Tom Dewey, Humphrey and Al Gore?

Let me count the ways
you lost Election Day.
Did you blow it in the year two thousand four?

All our hopes
All our hopes
All our hopes
All our hopes
All our hopes are gone!
The vote went way, way wrong!
Hear the people scream!
Seven horses seem...
no, it's four that march!

(organ break)

Teresa, we love her.
But she ain't the one who lost here in oh-four.

All our hopes
All our hopes
All our hopes
are... All our hopes are gone!
So sing Goldwater's song!
Lived out McGovern's dream!
Seven horses seem...
no, it's four that march!

(guitar break)

Well, did you lose like Adlai?
Well, did you lose like Adlai?
Well, did you lose like Adlai?

Nice history lesson, Michael.

Very good title and parody. Your parody manages to name all of the major party candidates who never held the office of president and lost a presidential election in the last 50 years, except Bob Dole and John Kerry (although the parody was about him, he wasn't named).

But I question your introductory comments. Yes, Jesus loves gay people - so what? A lot of gays voted for Bush, and it would have had no impact on the election if Kerry had made such a statement.

As the cetaceans go, the blue whale is not only bigger than most, it's bigger than all of them.

Uh, Johnny, what do whales have to do with this parody? Are you saying it's a whale of a good song? Or did you comment on the wrong one? Or are you upset that I didn't include that whale William Howard Taft among the litany of losers?

My "whale" comment was an intentional non-sequitur designed to puzzle you. It succeeded. Har har.
