The Lyrics

Written in November 2000, prior to the Supreme Court's installment of Bush
(instrumental intro)

Who can they beat, when they've lost to Gore?
No way... Republicans are sore
Can't they see that they've lost the fight?
They got mired, catering to the Right
They're all pissed, and they wail and moan
Made them pay, voters made them go home
Pissed off, they harangue outside
Hear them spin; they sound like Henry Hyde

Who can they beat now?
Who can they beat now?
Who can they beat now?
Who can they beat now?

Who can they beat, when they've lost to Gore?
They have found their lies don't work no more
It was clear on Election Day
Dubya snapped, and he was heard to say:
"I thought my charm was good by itself.
What went wrong? I had great enormous wealth!"
He's so dumb, money was no friend

Who can they beat now?
Who can they beat now?
Who can they beat now?
Who can they beat now?

Gore is the man who sent Bush away
It's hard to swallow, see...
There's no future for the G.O.P.
They live a fantasy

Who can they beat now?
Who can they beat now?
Who can they beat now?
Who can they beat now?
