The Lyrics

You know how people run for president, what with the voting and elections and Chad? Well, on the parody site TeeVeePedia, people have a different method -- go on an "American Idol"-style show called "Campaign!" and try to sing your way into the hearts of Americans, and you could be the next POTUS.
"Decide yourself if FDR's gonna stay!"
Host Ryan Seacrest would always say
Call in, write in, e-mail in your votes
So Abe Lincoln can write good gloats

Want a leader? Vote in on "Campaign!"

Keep Bush out of the U.S. of A.
So Bobby Simone will come and stay
Scream at, shout at, yell at the TV
If the winner's first name's Teddy

Need a new POTUS? Watch "Campaign!"

Watch them all fight it out, watch them all fight it out
For the presidency, on TV

Could you imagine Ronald Reagan's look
When H.W. Bush tore up his book
"He's gone," "He's out," "He's dead," they all said
But Bush beat him over the head

Want to get screwed? Come on our "Campaign!"

See the judge's blank look, see the judge's blank look
As Clinton plays the sax, that's Clinton

Watch out for Chad, he will mess you up, like he did to Al

Keep Dubya out of the votings heard
Reason: He could go and win, absurd

Want some money? Join the "Campaign!"

Cell phones out -- they've voted, cell phones out -- they've voted
Open the envelope, open the envelope
And the winner today, and the winner today
Is John F. Kennedy, thanks to some guy Andy
Visit TeeVeePedia's POTUS entry for mote information.
