The Lyrics

At GOP we seem to find out early,
how to run a country no surprise
the loony left, well now they have to worry
why they pick such wimpy old days guys

late at night, as Kerry lays there sleeping,
he'l toss and turn, he can't stay on one side
the people know, the secrets that he's keeping,
and they know just when they'll toss the bum aside

he says he would not have sent the troops in,
tells us then he voted for the move
same as Nam, where he participated
then he came to say he disapproved

you can't hide, your lyin' guys
and your smile is a cheap disguise
thought by now, you'd be despised
there ain't no way to hide, you lyin' guys

as they campaign through the west the story changes
lies are built on lies, the flop begins
he would tax, the he would cut, this strangeness
is how he thinks your voting mark he wins

as we close the gap towards the day of counting
the shrilly side has panic in it's eyes
the chin still grows, the lie exposure mounting
very soon he'll just rejoin the loony side

you can't hide, your lyin' guys
and your smile is a cheap disguise
thought by now, you'd be despised
there ain't no way to hide, you lyin' guys

Nice image of tossing and turning to reinforce the idea of flip-floppery. I would have used "lies" instead of "lays" in the first line of the second verse.

Good one, Malcolm

You missed a verse, and you missed the point, just as Georgie missed bin Laden. Tonight is the night that Kerry exposes that son of a Bush as the lying disaster he is.

Michael, Bush has exposed Kerry for the spineless panderer which he is and will serve four more years as the president of this fine nation. Now would be a good time to buy stock in Kleenex as I expect you and many other liberals to cry like hell on November 2nd.

Bush learns a new word for the debate, "liberal", and the lemmings all follow. Let's go bomb another country that didn't attack us, not have an exit plan, pay $200 billion to cover it by lowering taxes on rich people, and alienate the rest of the world because we won't ever need their help in the future anyway. Brilliant plan.
