Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Song is about the voting fiasco of the 2000 presidential election and the ballot snaffoo in Palm Beach Florida.
I'm a Palm Beach voter,even though I am older
I still know what to do in that voting booth
But those who are younger,they stare and wonder
If I have strength enough to punch all the way through

Chorus:
Wasted my vote again in the election here
Should 've read the instructions on the wall
Some people claim that the voters are to blame
But,I know,oh it couldn't be our fault

Buchannan or Al Gore,who did I vote for
Had to put on my glasses so I could drive home
And there on the TV,when they interviewed me
Looked like I didn't know what the hecks goin' on

Chorus:
Wasted my vote again in the election here
Should've read those instructions on the wall
Some people claim that the voters are to blame
I don't know,maybe it could be our fault

A cnvoy of vote cards,this thing has gone too far
How long's it take to elect a president
When I cast my ballot,I should've used a mallet
'Cause now it's up to the courts to say just what I meant

Chorus:
Wasted my vote again in the election here
Should've read those instructions on the door
Republicans complain that the voters were insane
All I know is,I voted for Gore

Tag:
Republicans complain that the voters were insane
All I know is,I voted for Gore

(C)2000 Jim Lane
