The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

The biased pundits on the evening news
All making up something, so that Bush won't lose.
Gore's the one that they abuse.
They help Smirk From Austin.

All his money was a factor, hear the right wing cheer.
Bush doesn't have to look good, no need to be clear.
Unqualified without peer
Is that Smirk From Austin.

Couldn't make this up,
Smirk is such a clown.
Couldn't make this up,
Smirk is such a clown.
Couldn't make this up,
Smirk is such a clown.
Couldn't make this up,
Smirk is going down.

See the airhead blonde pundit, whom we all despise
Slamming "Al Gore's campaign cash," and repeat Bush's lies.
She's trying to tell you "Bush is wise,"
That dumb Smirk From Austin.

Can the Smirk lead all the nation?
He's not ready yet!
Ditto-monkeys in the newsrooms and the Internet
Protect Bush like he's their pet,
'Cause he's Smirk From Austin.

But we really need to find out what's going on.
Yeah, we really need to know just how far they've gone.
They won't leave Al Gore alone.
They love Smirk From Austin.

Couldn't make this up,
Smirk is such a clown.
Couldn't make this up,
Smirk is such a clown.
Couldn't make this up,
Smirk is such a clown.
Couldn't make this up,
Smirk is going down.

Dirty little secrets,
Dirty little lies,
Bush got his dirty little fingers on the presidential prize.
We need to cut Bush down to size.
We hate Smirk From Austin.

His campaign is gonna end, though,
Then we'll dance and sing.
When it's said and done, George Bush will not be king.
The presidency's not his thing,
'Cause he's Smirk From Austin.
