The Lyrics

Okay, so I took a little too long on this one... but it's pretty different from the other California recall parodies. This one is all Scwharzenegger!
On a Hollywood highway, cool chill of The Freeze
Warm smell of the bodies, Rising of the Machines
Up ahead of my biceps I saw shimmering rays
My muscles were heavy as I started to wonder if this was the End of Days
As I smashed through the doorway, I heard a Christmas bell
And I Jingled All the Way, said, "I am Hercules", stumbled, and fell
Got a call from my agent, said, "Gray Davis must pay"
He started running down the corridor when he heard me say:

I am going to govern California
Such an ugly place, at least it's not your face!
Davis, I am going to govern California
Put aside your fears for the next few years

I've got a few thousand hummers, I've got a Mercedes Benz
If you don't want to vote for me, I'll just run over your friends
Lifting weights in the gym room, sweet summer sweat
Some pump to remember, some pump to forget
You say that I am a Nazi, and I say to you, "Nein."
I swear, I haven't touched a woman there since 1969
And still these news reporters just won't call it a day
Call my agents in the middle of the night just to hear what they say

I am going to govern California
Such an ugly place? I will break your face!
You're givin' it up, I will govern California!
I'm the governatuh, bake you like potatuh

The Republican Party is supporting my plan
The Democrats continue to endorse this inefficient man
In Gray Davis' chambers, they ready a photo op
He tries to win you voters back, but he just can't "Pump You Up!"
Last thing I remember, he was running away
from all of the budget crises and deficits he couldn't pay
As when I was Terminator, I am programmed to receive
your recall votes that firmly state, "Gray Davis has to leave!"
Just imagine Arnold singing it, and it's 10 times more funny.

Whoa; can't believe I almost missed this one (been a lot of "governator-type" parodies here). Thanks to the other commenters I gave it a go and glad I did. Excellent!

This line made me laugh out loud: "And I Jingled All the Way, said, "I am Hercules", stumbled, and fell" !!! LOL! Great job, Aaron.
