The Lyrics

Texas boys just seem to find out early
Getting government jobs means telling lies
Killing convicts, and throwing lavish parties
Getting high, and soused right to the eyes.

Stole elections, bumbling presentations
Home by eight with pretzels and his beer
Bang! He blew away that good for nothing pretzel
That made him fall from from his chair down on his rear

Chorus: You can't hide your worthless lies
And your big... grin's a thin disguise
I thought by now you'd realize
Americans don't believe your worthless lies

Now he goes on tours makes his famous speeches
"Stay the course, or Iraq will bring us down"
Puts on his cowboy hat then into his limo
Blows past Cindy tearing out of town

He wonders how it ever got this crazy
Events were supposed to be set up carefully
Ain't it sad how making President didn't change things
You're still the same old drunk you used to be

Chorus: You can't hide your worthless lies
And your big... grin's a thin disguise
I thought by now you'd realize
Americans don't believe your worthless lies
Americans don't believe your worthless lies
Dubya...you can't hide your worthless lies

You left out half the song. Lines per verse: 12, 8, 12. But the sentiment was right on the money. Money, of course, is only one of many things Bush will never be right on.

Oops, didn't realize some was missing...on what was there (which I thought was the whole enchilada) I gave you 5-5-5. What you did was very nicely written and gave a critical POV without over-the-top nastiness that we often see in political pieces here.

thanks michael, I appreciate the feedback and honest criticism. Should have looked closer at the original song before doing the parody. thanks to paul too. Learned my lesson about doing parodies without reading the original first. Glad you liked what I did. I have read a lot of other people's parodies here and have figured out that I don't have to be nasty to say what I want to say.

I'm sorry. this WAS nasty...it depends on what side of the political fence you happen to be on.

Pat, there's a big difference between going after the person responsible for policy and action when you feel he is not living up to that obligation and painting a whole bunch of people with a laundry list of outrageous slurs and slanders and THEN applying them to ALL his supporters AND the members of his political party...I just don't see this as 'nasty' through my perceptive lens...you don't like that the President got criticized here...or criticized at all...but that's not a realistic position in the current political climate...Mr. Bush and his political allies and supporters dish it out pretty good pretty regularly...daily, in fact, for the most part...it's got to be expected - and mostly accepted - that they will get a lot of that back...please...compare the words of this and some of the pieces that you know I am referring to...there is just no proportionality or comparison between them...If I thought this was over-the-top I wouldn't have said that I didn't think that it was...one of the characteristics of parody is over-exaggeration and overstatement (as well as under-exaggeration and understatement)...don't try to take away a young writer's tools in this endeavor...this wasn't as rough on the top guy as 3/4 or more of the political stuff I see around here...anyway, that's my POV here...

I didnt notice any missing and it paced fine to me and from the other side of the pond I liked the sentiment ;-P .....5s

Paul, you said "when you feel he is not living up to that obligation". The key words here are WHEN YOU FEEL, that does not mean that I feel the same way. In all, you and carol may believe what you see in your rosy colored glasses, but you never speak for the rest of us. Would I be here defending the President if I thought otherwise?
Adagio - August 30, 2005 - Report this comment
Paul, one more thing...you said "one of the characteristics of parody is over-exaggeration and overstatement (as well as under-exaggeration and understatement)...don't try to take away a young writer's tools in this endeavor..." Seems to me as if you did the same thing, without teaching that there's another side.
Carol, your rude "bwahh" aside, you have to learn that this is not just a democratic haven, although it may seem so, since most of the writer's here lean a little too liberally. If you had written a normal parody, I would say that you have talent that should be expanded. As it is, you're just taking the easy way out and going with the crowd. (btw) no vote.
carol - August 30, 2005 - Report this comment
Adagio For starters I never said I was looking for a democratic haven Hello? Second: I am not here to write "normal" parodies. Who defines normal anyway? You? Third, defend the president if you feel you must, but where in the world does that make it right to call the rest of us wrong for the way we feel or for what we say? Either everyone has freedom of speech or no one does. 4th--I don't care how good a parody writer you are(and yes I have read a lot of your parodies), that still does not make it right for you to accuse me of taking the easy way out. I write what I choose to write, and I won't stop just because one or some people don't like it or they are uncomfortable with what I right. Get over it. 5th--where do you get off accusing me of seeing the world thru rosy colored glasses. Those who accuse others are generally guilty of what they first accuse the other party of in the first place. Finally if you intend to defend the president that completely, then you place your name on the dotted line and go to Iraq. Otherwise, zip it.

Paul thanks for your defense and thoughful words.

Carol...you have NO idea what you are saying to me here, either that or you are being deleberately cruel. "if you intend to defend the president that completely, then you place your name on the dotted line and go to Iraq."

Carol: Don't let the right-wingers get you down. You know what they say: When you can't argue the facts, argue the law; and when you can't argue the law, call your opponent "unpatriotic" or some such variation. They can't argue the facts or the law. And don't worry about "rookie mistakes." All of us on this site have gone through them, myself included. (I started out with twaddle like "Oilfinger.") Like some Presidents who, at first, seem to be inexperienced on Inauguration Day, you just might "grow in office." Of course, both George Bushes, both the ridiculously inexperienced son and the very experienced (and very diversely experienced) father, shrank in office considerably.

Carol, remember that the right-wing mascot, Neal Horsley, has admitted to having sex with animals. Also remember that speaking out is your right - and ensuring that we never lose that right makes you more patriotic than the rally behind the war crowd. Continue to fight against the tyranny of the majority - fear the extremist Christian right - their next step could be legalizing human/animal marriages. bob

Carol, great job! Ignore the right-wing Bush Nazis who don't like getting a taste of their own medicine. They're hopeless anyway.
