The Lyrics

We Blues know you Reds have some preconceived notions of what life might be like in our states. Now that the election's over, we in the blue states have decided it's time to fess up that you've been *right* all along. There's a lot that wouldn't fit the lyrics, but whatever it is you imagine about us, you can pretty much bet that the worse it is, the more "right" you are. Enjoy! Don't remember the original? http://www.dragonslighting.com/lifeinthefastlane.mp3
You want our partying banned,
Hate our Blue legislation,
(Reds are terminally priggish.)
We live it up,
As you pray for salvation
"Bleeding hearts", but we show no pity

We have fantastic reputations
We're "just no damned good",
We're bent on destruction
Decadence rules!
We have nothing in common;
With you "righteous" Reds
We're just classless bastards, just like you've always said!

Life in the Blue states.
We don't wanna toe your line!
Life in the Blue states.
Uh huh!.

(Red state livin's SO dull!)

Evil creations,
Of moral decay
We offer temptation
In wanton displays.

We tempt all the "right" people,
We turn "Jack"s into "Jill"s,
We throw outrageous orgies,
We make devilish films.

We tell lies to your children,
Lies they'll embrace
We invented all the science,
Just to rub it in your face.

Soundly deceivin'
Corrupting the "right"
We have close ties to Satan,
(See? You're so very right about us!)

Life in the Blue states.
Love to make you lose your minds!
Life in the Blue states.
Ain't "right."

Life in the Blue states
Love to sin all the time.
Life in the Blue states.
Uh huh!.

Rollin' in money,
Guided by lust,
We're pimpin' out your daughters
And we've stolen your guns!

We tax every penny, we set all the killers free!
We set out to brown the white race --
Rampant in-ter-ming-l-ing!

We took all the Bibles and threw them in the trash
The Holy books are burnin', even hotter than the cash!

We're all bummin' on a free ride
Gettin' rich to goof off
She's wedding her
And we're all high on medi-pot!
We're livin'...

Life in the Blue states.
Let us help you lose your minds!
Life in the Blue states!
Uh huh!

Life in the Blue states
Love to sin, all the time.
Life in the Blue states.
Uh huh!

Life in the Blue states!
Life in the Blue states!


You'll soon be one of us... you'll soon be one of us... you'll soon be one of us.... or not. ;D

From someone who contributes to the moral decay of society, daily - this is priceless.

Funny, but I'd still rather eat my own vomit than live in a "blue" state.

Very good parody, Melhi, but does this parody apply to the state you described earlier in "Goin' Out of My Gourd?" Both parodies seem to be about Illinois, but they also seem to be about two different universes.

Wow, thanks Robert P., John Barry, Sheik of the strange diet ;), Ashkicksass, Alvin and John J. John J. -- it's not about any one Blue state, in particular... You're right, I do live in a blue state, but I live in a small, very red town in a very small, very red rural county. The differences between red areas of Illinois and blue areas of Illinois do make them seem like different universes.

Good job, Melhi! Gee...I wonder what color my home state, The People's Republic of Taxachusetts, is...hmm....hmm....

Thanks Johnny. You're a true-blue friend. ;)

I have lived in two blue states and two red states, so I don't have to wonder what life is like in either. Kerry "blew" it this time around. People do seem to have a lot of misconceptions about both sides. I'm glad I have been traveled enough both stateside and overseas to know the difference. Fine parody Melhi. The state of My-mind gives all 5 electoral votes to your parody.

nicely dry and ironic, Melhi, which is the best way to hit the bulls-eye in my book - excellente - 555

Wow, Michael, I think that's the best review I've had from you, yet! Thanks!! :)

Eh, I still think that Republicratic is the way to go. The Republicrats represent the midway point between the Democrats & Republicans, in the purple area (remember, red + blue = purple), and thus, everything is balanced with the Republicrats.
