The Lyrics

Jeremiah was a prophet
in the Testament of Old.
I never understood a single word he said
but the Zogby had him polled
and just look how well "morality" polled.

Sing it!
"Oy" says the world
from every boy and girl, now.
"Oy" say the fishes in the deep blue sea.
"Oy, the GOP!"

If I were the new President
I'll tell you what I'd do:
I'd throw away the Dick and the Rum and their war
and say things that are true!

Sing now!
"Oy" says the world
from every boy and girl.
"Oy" say the fishes in the deep blue sea.
"Oy, the GOP!"

(instrumental break)

You know Bush is so shady.
Loves to have his fun.
He's a high-strung liar and a golf-cart rider.
A straight-shooter, no, he ain't one!
And he's put us all under the gun!

Sing now!
"Oy" says the world
from every boy and girl.
"Oy" say the fishes in the deep blue sea.
"Oy, the GOP!"

"Oy" says the world
from every boy and girl.
"Oy" say the fishes in the deep blue sea.
"Oy, the GOP!"

"Oy"... says the world!
From... each boy and girl!.
"Oy"... says the world!
"Oy, the GOP!"

"Oy" says the world
from every boy and girl.
"Oy" say the fishes in the deep blue sea.
"Oy, the GOP!"

Well-a-well-a-well-a...
"Oy" says the world
from every boy and girl.
"Oy" say the fishes in the deep blue sea.
"Oy, the GOP!"

(repeat 'til 2008)

"Oy says the world" kind of reminds me of the album, when you're in love, the whole world is Jewish. Loved this one!

The image of Zogby polling Jeremiah was priceless.

Although I agree with a lot of folks about "anyone but Bush", and although Bush-bashing songs are generally getting tiresome these days...you picked a clever original and a new angle to write yours from, so that deserves *some* credit. 5-5-5.

DKTOS, and wasn't going to vote till I saw the "repeat till 2008" at the end, which made me really LOL ;-)

I really don't think anyone is going to further any political agenda with any kind of seriousness with the phrase "Eat shit, Euro-snobs!"
Paul Robinson - November 10, 2004 - Report this comment
Michael P - had me chuckling here, and I can use some when thinking about politics and the next four years these days. Arwen...excellent point...but then consider the source...Oh, yeah, 5's here.

Oh, Johnny, if you only knew how I hated Tears for Fears... but everybody in the Bush Administration wants to rule the world.

Stuart, explain to me how you Aussies can re-elect that sanctimonious boob John Howard! And explain to me why your conservative party is called the Liberal Party!
Stuart McArthur - November 11, 2004 - Report this comment
Michael, as I suggested in a previous post after your election, fear causes conservatives to be elected, while comfort and optimism cause liberals to be elected (as a very broad generalisation) and these are fearful times - in Australia too - and Howard is a master at playing the fear card.......Yes, our conservative party is called the Liberal party (leading to our need for the expressions big-L liberal and small-l liberal). which is counter-intuitive in exactly the same way as your "left" party being blue and your "right" party being red is - how did THAT happen???
Michael Pacholek - November 17, 2004 - Report this comment
On the State color question, Stuart, this time, we really can blame the media. Though up until 1992, NBC (Chet Huntley-David Brinkley, John Chancellor, Tom Brokaw) and CBS (Walter Cronkite, Dan Rather) still used red for Democrats and blue for Republicans. ABC (Howard K. Smith, Frank Reynolds, Peter Jennings) has always used blue for the Dems and red for the GOP. And everybody uses yellow for third parties, though none has won even one State since George Wallace in 1968.
Stuart McArthur - November 17, 2004 - Report this comment
Yeah it's funny that yellow thing - our third party gets yellow, and our fourth gets green, which they took to heart because they're called "The Greens" (altho they're 3 with a bullet at the moment) But it's interesting how those 4 colours seem to have an intrinsic hierarchy. If it were the Beatles, John would be red, Paul blue, George yellow and Ringo green
