The Lyrics

The democrat convention..
was crying like a child without a toy
as we counted all the votes in,
down to South miami..
can we cheat a little more...??


(chorus)
I'm from a wasteland, wasteland..
Al Gore's Tennessee it's such a wastelam
poorboys and pilgrims in dungarees
they all should rightly be in wasteland
Al's running mate companion is ninety years old
and is a child out of Marriage..
but we have reason to believe
that he was ill conceived in Wasteland

You called up a texan to tell him he'd won
(as if he didn't know that)
as if you had lost your head
as if we haven't noticed
the way you brush your hair on your flat forehead
and you cried.. losing votes is like a window to your heart
now you lost and you're blown apart
why can't you just go????

there's a president from texas, calls himself little George I see
and sometimes when he asks his dad for advice I say..
whoah so this is what he means....
but he'll keep well away from wasteland
and I say losing votes is like a window to your heart
and now you lost, democrats are blown apart
why can't you just go???

the Wasteland, wasteland,
sand al back to wasteland
for reasons we cannot explain
some part of me says he should be in wasteland
and he may be obliged to defend
every one, every ending
or maybe there's no obligations now
I have reason to believe
that Al himself conceived in Graceland
