The Lyrics

Roy Disney is suing the Board at Walt Disney due to controlled voting on replacing Michael Eisner. Just FYI, doesn't impact my lyrics... Oh, and Disneyworld Australia is just a myth.
Hand out
Get paid forever after
No maybe's
It would be a slaughter
You know you would be a fool
Turning down 'the Mouse'

Walt's might
Your hard times now are over
Air flight
Their tourist cash is better
You'd better not say "No way!"
Turning down 'the Mouse'

Disney builds it, they will come
Eating pretzels, chewing gum
Your debt salvation is here
They will travel near and far
Taxi, bus and motorcar
Better legalize beer

Peru,
Where they can ride a llama
Iran,
They help us find Osama
A bazillion reasons for not
Turning down 'the Mouse'

You'll get tired of Mickey's face
And boys'll stare at Jasmine's waist
There's a price to be paid
Men shave off their facial hair
Then dress up as grizzly bears
Come on join the parade

That mouse
Long time since he's been funny
That's right
Just want to make more money
Morals decay still no one believes
Can't turn down 'the Mouse'

Cause worldwide news would report
If Disney opened in Tibet
Nothing else would rank higher
They've yet to build in Sydney
And I'm surprised they haven't yet
Should we blame Micheal Eisner?

Can't turn down 'the Mouse'
