The Lyrics

This is in response to Kristof's challenge over on the message board...(http://www.inthe00s.com/index.php/topic,9674.0.html)
This whole world's in strife
Leadership we lack
If you vote for me
I will save you
Don't question my vain behavior
I can't help it, it's my nature
"Divine Goddess of the Brave New World"

Leave the past behind
Start a brand new course
On me please decide
I can promise
No more taxes, that's my pleasure
Free health care that lasts forever
"Divine Goddess of the Brave New World"

Just be nice, and my laws won't bind you
Marching bands and free ice cream all around
That I'm cute I need not remind you

Oil cost is high, you hate it
Gas is on me, I've paid it
"Divine Goddess of the Brave New World"

***

Politics breed indecision
Vote for me and clear your vision
"Divine Goddess of the Brave New World"

Pay when you ever ever ever ever need it
I'm perfect, just believe it
"Divine Goddess of the Brave New World"

Give my public buried treasure
Take vacation days whenever
"Divine Goddess of the Brave New World"
As far as I know, I'm running unopposed. But you should still vote for me. Seriously. =)

Marvelous, as always, Goddess.

I'm not sure any of us are worthy enough to prostrate ourselves face-down on the ground and beg your for your permission to obey your every command once you are elected ... so I guess I'll just vote you some fives. ;-D

Did you learn to be Divine in Divination? Ugh...that sucked, I got nothin. Good song though, you got my vote!

Hey!....Another great parody, Arwen. I always enjoy reading your parodies and singing them in my head as I read them...this one's wonderful. 5-5-5 for the effort. I enjoyed every line. :-)

...never mind, I'll just cast my vote and get out of your way, Your Arwenness. Brilliant parody.
Stuart McArthur - May 03, 2005 - Report this comment
wow, this may be my favourite parody of yours so far - very witty and clever, and perfect pacing which maps it exactly over the OS - big 555

Leo...thanks...you know nothing spruces up a compliment like my favorite two words: "as always." You're fabulous...as always. =)

Johnny...don't be ridiculous. Of course you're worthy enough...thanks!

Jeff...whether your comment sucked or not will not be discussed...because yes, it made me laugh...and of course that's all that matters... =) Thanks!!

alvin...I know that there never was for me...good to know there are a few believers out there...thanks!

Rick...I shall award you 5s for a FABulous new title. Diva of Divinity will be my name when I'm on vacation...=)

Serafina...and always enjoy reading your very kind comments!! Thanks a bunch!

Luke...I'm really not sure what to do with that. I tried. I swear. I'm just at a loss...=( But thank you...thank you very much!

Stuart...wowza! That's quite a compliment, considering the consistent quality of work I produce around this place...; ) Thanks!!

I'd better explain, it's from the ending of Aldous Huxley's classic dystopian novel 'Brave New World'.

Very enjoyable parody. Arwen for president! 555
Arwen - May 04, 2005 - Report this comment
Luke...Oh yes...I'm somewhat familiar with at least the premise of the novel...I think I was supposed to read it for a class once...hehehe.

Larry...that's the spirit! Get to the ballot box RIGHT AWAY!!!

First "princess," now "goddess"? She is woman, hear her brag.
Arwen - May 04, 2005 - Report this comment
Oh Michael...it's not bragging if you can back it up...=) And you KNOW you want to vote for me.
Peter Andersson - May 06, 2005 - Report this comment
* Watches Jake do strange things in pale moon light, ralphs, sneaks away*. Arwen, I'm counting on you to outlaw that kind of behavior when you're in power, or are we to degenerate to some kind of Celtic Cult?

I was going to vote for Pedro, but I guess you'll do.
Arwen - May 15, 2005 - Report this comment
K1...it works best if you just don't look at Luke...; ) If I ignore him, he'll go away...

Ash...it's nice to know that I come in as a strong second to Pedro. That guy is a political machine...I'm really quite honored...=) Thanks!

You just get better and better. I would call this divine, but that's redundant. How 'bout...CELESTIAL!
Arwen - May 31, 2005 - Report this comment
Great word choice, Mr. Spafford...I've always considered myself Celestial material...=) It's all about converting the public now. And it is true that I get better and better...you're unbelievably astute, sir...=) Thanks...

(ABC3-D) Now that's what I call an election campaign! All hail Queen Arwen! We grovel at your feet! We pledge allegiance to you! We will soak ourselves in petrol then smoke 10 cigars to show our undying obedience! You: Really? Me: No, not really. Don't kill me!
Kristof Robertson - August 06, 2006 - Report this comment
(ABC3-D) I've just had a thought, Arwen...you don't wanna go comparing yourself to Divine; the obesity, garish makeup, and eating dog mess SO wouldn't work for you! :-D Still love this
Red Ant - August 06, 2006 - Report this comment
(ABC3D) Oh my, I can't believe I missed this when it was first posted, especially since A) I KTOS and B) I was part of the AmIRight Campaign too. I humbly beg for forgiveness. You have my belated vote, and this was great!

(ABC3-D) Should I start building your temple now? (though I might have a tiny problem should you decide to make Vin Diesel a god...)
Michael McVey - August 09, 2006 - Report this comment
Very nice parody about Hillary Clinton! Except for one thing: she will raise taxes, not eliminate them. Remember, she's Ct. Taxula's wife, not one of his mistresses.-- MM
Rick C - August 13, 2006 - Report this comment
(ABC3-D) Just found out that I never laid those 3 fives at your feet. They're there now. (hmmm...sounds like I'm consoling you for some reason). OK, about the parody...still excellent all around and, a pleasure to re-visit.
Stuart McArthur - August 15, 2006 - Report this comment
(ABC3D) see above, although I take back that compliment as you've done a dozen or so parodies since then that have surpassed this one - but anyone who promises more marching bands will always get my vote!

An oldie but goodie, can't think of any worse pun than the one above.
