The Lyrics

Rick Perry drops out of the 2016 race for the White House.
When all's said and done
Knowing how Trump made you feel
100 days and you were gone
Lost your base, lost your zeal
Oh, you lost all your donors
And you lacked Trump's wealth
So now the journey's over

Oh, Perry, you clod
You're gone, you're gone!
Oh, Perry, thank God
(You didn't)
Cling on, cling on!

It's not hard to let you go
Principals over Personality
Fundraisers stopped the flow
Surrogates defected so early

But you knew you were a second debate loser
In single digits you found yourself
Only $1 million first quarter, son
Staff held on, but...

Oh, Perry, you clod
You're gone, you're gone!
Oh, Perry, thank God
(You didn't)
Cling on, cling on!
Oh, Perry... it's done...

[Instrumental Interlude]

Oh, Perry

The 2012 lessons
Long ago, were afraid
"Third agency" made you weak, not strong
Dropped out before second debate

Oh, Perry, you clod
You're gone, you're gone!
Oh, Perry, thank God
(You didn't)
Cling on, cling on!

Oh, Perry, you clod
You're gone, you're gone!

Trump was too strong
Oh, Perry
It all went wrong... for you...

not all that surprising if I recall correctly he dropped out of the last presidential race as well but oh well we still got Rubio or Bush to look forward to only 2 days until the next debate now! 5's by the by I don't mean to nitpick or anything but wasn't the OS done by Steve Perry solo without the band Journey? or did the whole band do a version too?

Technically, you are right Jon, but he wrote it while still a member of Journey; therefore, it is considered an honorary Journey song which shows up on many of their compilation albums.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
