The Lyrics

There's an easy way for Hilary and Barack to settle their differences. Its called a duel! They did it in the 1800's. Whoever survives is your Presidential nominee. If they kill each other I say we give Al Gore another shot.
All the young Interns at the Capitol they do the same dance don't you know.
If you ask them politely oh whey oh they'll fall to their knees and blow.

All the scandal and corruption covers everything under the sun oh,
Government oh whey oh yeah makes it seem so homespun.
Is it fact or fiction? Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh.
Talk like a Politician.

The clueless public cast their votes, run home and then they slit their wrists.
They've got the creeps oh whey oh.
They just elected a Bolshevist.
All the bored Reporters so desperate for stories they search for answers,
Than the phone rings oh whey oh they're talking like Politicians.
All the Reporters in Washington say ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh,
Talk like a Politician.

Its like a dehumidifier for your brain absorb the nonsense its all mundane,
Like minutia oh whey oh, like donations for a smear campaign.

If you want to find all the liars theyre singing in the church choir.
They clap and preach oh whey oh. They get drunk and talk on "Crossfire".

All the smarmy Lawyers with their suits, the freaky Judges have Prostitutes,
And the Lobbyists know oh whey oh they talk the talk like Politicians.

All the liars in the church choir sing ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh,
Talk like a Politician. Talk like a Politician.

"If you want to find all the liars theyre singing in the church choir" is my favorite line here. Pacing's off, but it had me laughing anyway.

"The clueless public cast their votes, run home and then they slit their wrists" was my favorite line (too bad they don't slit their wrists first...). Like Mason mentioned, the pacing is off a lot, especially early on. Funny though.

I know, I know, the pacing is off, but hey no one who writes song parodies is perfect. I'm just glad people can laugh at my stuff. I mean thats part of the fun is making people laugh.

I saw the pacing problem right off with the word politician in the parody title but I chose from the get go to ignore it. The song is well done and I must say I have never seen the word "minutia" used in a parody before. I love it. I could actually hear The Bangles as I read this and that is a good thing. It is too bad they outlawed duelling. That gentlemanly way of settling differences had its merits. Too bad we got civilized enough to have civil war - an oxymoron if one was ever uttered.

Tony - I like your parody - work on your pacing - you have what it takes to write well and funny. I'm one of your fans. Besides with a name like wiseguy, I hafta like ya since I write so much about wise guys. I'm fiving this in spite of the pacing problem. You got good marks from "L'il Cakes" and that is also good.

Hey Guy do you want my autograph now or do you want to wait until someone actually knows who I am?! I already know what my tombstone will say, it will read, "he was a song parody visionary, but his pacing was off" and under that it'll say 5 5 5!
