The Lyrics

So you wanna act like you're already the Republican nominee for President? Then I'm gonna treat you like it, old sailor!
(instrumental break)

Close your eyes.
Talk to the hand, Johnny.
Do you think you'll be beating?
You don't understand.
It would be a shame.
You are only dreaming.
'Cause we're not voting
for you, John McCain.

I believe
it will not be, Johnny.
Sick of fascism creeping.
No support from me.
Policies so lame.
You are only dreaming.
'Cause we're not voting
for you, John McCain.

Try to blame
liberals again.
All that's gonna get you
is big November pain.
You are gonna lose, you're feeling.
Oh, whoa...

(instrumental break)

Sweat and strain
from the Dubya reign
body politic is aching
and it's wracked with pain.
I don't want to keep this feeling.
Oh, whoa...

Close your eyes.
Talk to the hand, Johnny.
Do you think you'll be beating?
You don't understand.
It would be a shame!
You are only dreaming!
'Cause we're not voting
for you, John McCain!

Close your eyes.
Talk to the hand, Johnny.
Do you think you'll be beating?
You don't understand.
It would be a shame!
You are only dreaming!
'Cause we're not voting
for you, John McCain!

Close your eyes.
Talk to the hand, Johnny.
Do you think you'll be beating?
You don't understand.
It would be a shame!
You are only dreaming!
'Cause we're not voting
for you, John McCain!

(repeat until Election Day)
Did you notice the reference to a song that describes McCain pretty well? "Ol' Man River"!
