The Lyrics

you've been lying we both know it and I'll talk about it
yeah your birth is kept secret all the same
why the hush about it?
shouldn't really matter to me, maybe
you shouldn't run the land of the free
you don't have a chance no, you won't succeed


somewhere somehow somebody gonna say they found some
truth in your words but I won't be around then
it don't make no difference you see, baby
McCain and Palin gonna win this you'll see
you don't have a chance no, you won't succeed
you don't have a chance no, you won't succeed

barack, you aint the first
I'm surre a lot of other nuts have been burned
right now it's unreal for you
but it's one of those things
you gotta heel to what's true

somewhere somehow somebody gonna say they found some
truth in your words but I won't be around then
it don't make no difference you see, baby
McCain and Palin gonna win this you'll see
you don't have a chance no, you won't succeed
you don't have a chance no, you won't succeed
