The Lyrics

The Washington Monument was shining like a national guitar
He was following his entourage down the highway to fight with Bush at this bloody war
His name is Al Gore, Al Gore
From Memphis, Tennessee
His name is Al Gore
Poor men and immigrants with families should all vote for Al Gore
His travelling companion is 60 years old; he's a Senator from Connecticut
And he's reason to believe they both will be received in DC
Bush rings his to tell him he's won
As if he didn't know that
As if he hadn't seen the news
As if he'd never noticed
The way they'd rigged the vote in Florida
And Al said losing to Bush was the biggest insult of his life
Everybody sees you re so pissed off
Everybody sees you get mad
He's going to the Supreme Court
Not Memphis, Tennessee
He's going to the Supreme Court
Poor men and immigrants with families DID vote for Gore, but so what?
His travelling companion is now just hope,
He's looking at killing himself
He's no reason to believe that he will be received in DC
There's a man in Washington DC, who's called the Chief Justice of the Court
And Gore wants to ask him to recount the votes and he said no and Al said "Oh so this is what he means: Bush should go bouncing into the White House"
And Al says, "Loosing to Bush is the biggest insult of my life"
Everybody sees you got more votes
Everybody wants you to win
In Florida, Florida
I hate Florida
For reasons I can not explain
There's some part of me wants to kill George Bush
And I don't feel obliged to defend every clause, every article
'Cos maybe there's no need for the Electoral Collage now
Maybe I've a reason to believe Bush won't get rid of it in 4 years
Oooooooooooooooooooo, Al Gore, Al Gore, Al Gore, Poor Al Gore.
