"Andrew J. and John Kerry"

Parody Written by:

Royce Miller

The Lyrics

this came about from watching "Fox and Friends" 2/12-and seeing
Mancow hold up a $20 bill and say "doesn't he look like John Kerry"
Andrew J. and John Kerry, have you noticed the similarity
Who is that on the $20 dollar bill, can you tell me?

We all know that Andrew Jackson died a long time ago
There's a look alike for everyone
Who would have guessed
He would be reincarnated as John Kerry from Mass?
Oh boy, what a gas

Andrew J. and John Kerry, have you noticed the similarity
Who is that on the $20 dollar bill, can you tell me

Mancow said that they look alike so I had to look
There's a look alike for everyone
Who would have guessed
Andrew Jackson would be coming back as Kerry from Mass
Oh boy, what a gas

Andrew J and John Kerry, have a similar face, it's so eerie
Who is that on the $20 dollar bill, can you tell me
Who is that on the $20 dollar bill, can you tell me

Andrew J, John Kerry, notice the similarity
Andrew J, John Kerry, notice the similarity...

We all know, coincidences involving presidents past. And what about, John Kennedy... VP's last name was the same as that of Lincoln's, and they both were shot dead... Abe Lincoln and JFK.

What a keen observation. Yes, they do resemble one another.
Phil Alexander - February 13, 2004 - Report this comment
Could somebody post me a $20 bill so I can check the resemblance, please?


;-)

Paper money is referred to as "dead presidents". He'd be the first live one if he gets elected and they make a new twenty with Andrew Jackson with a more modern hair cut.

Phil - Check this link for a pic of the new US twenty dollar bill:

Something else interesting about the twenty:

Fine parody Royce.

Thanks for the link, Guy - Surely there ain't no way that hair belongs on that head? It looks like a not-very-convincing Photoshop pic (come to think of it, a definite resemblance to Kerry, then)

Guy--thanks. And Phil, I'd send you a $20 but some weeks a $20 is like a $100 bill to me--and I love any face that's on it

Heh heh, it's even funnier if you imagine Stevie Wonder singing it

Birgitta: Thanks for reading. I really like writing parodies but suffer from an occasional bout of burnout; it takes alot of effort to both write parodies and read other people's, and make comments--so just have fun with it, that's my advice.

Andrew Jackson: War hero, stayed a man of the people even though he became very rich, stood up to big business, the other party hated his guts, he didn't care, saw his wife viciously attacked (among other things, for being a golddigger), and the guy he kicked out of the White House was the son of a former President, who gained the office by questionable means. John Kerry: All of the above has already happened, including who he faces in the general election, though it's not completely fulfilled...yet...

Perceptive parody, Royce. MP makes some very interesting comparisions, but he forgot to contrast: Andrew Jackson's wife did not require a pre-nuptual agreement before she married him and Andrew Jackson did not get $75 hair cuts.

Guy, someone showed me the folding thing (strange) and added another small thought, 911 or 9 + 11 = 20, (could that be why the 911 pics are on the twenty dollar bill or all the bills they could be on?)
