The Lyrics

Politician and a lobster together
See which one is smarter

Some say Pols
But I say no

Politicians rock and them lobsters roll

It ain't me,
It's,
The people that say,
Politi-cians lead us astray

I say,
That,
A lobster today's
Smarter than the pols in every way!

That's right!
A lobster is smarter!
A lobster is smarter - that's right!

Senator Kerry, in the corner, he cry
Dubya come and ask him why
He said "A lobster won my chess game, dude!"
Dubya said "Lobster beat me too!"

It ain't me,
It's,
The people that say,
Politi-cians lead us astray

I say,
That,
A lobster today's
Smarter than the pols in every way!

That's right!
A lobster is smarter!
A lobster is smarter - that's right!

Ever since
The world began
Politics has always been enslaving man

The lobsters may have small brainpans

But next t'politicians they're Einsteins, man!

It ain't me,
It's,
The people that say,
Politi-cians lead us astray

I say,
That,
A lobster today's
Smarter than the pols in every way!

That's right!
A lobster is smarter!
A lobster is smarter - that's right!

Harry Belafonte recorded the first version of "Man Smart, Woman Smarter" years before The Grateful Dead recorded this slightly different version of the same tune....but I've seen The Grateful Dead in concert, twice, and I personally like their version better --- no offense to dear ol' Harry, DAAAAAY-OH !!

The title says it all. Plus, it's reasonable to assume that since pols smell like shit, they'd probably taste like it too.

Fives just for the thought of dropping a politician into a pot of boiling water (most of 'em are already red anyway). Well done Johnny.

Our backup plan is coming together. Bwahahahahahaha....

Now, you Crabb-people, that just wouldn't be prudent at this juncture. My son, our Crustacean-In-Chief, will have your soft-shelled asses over a Texas barbecue with corn-on-the-cob and lemon-butter-sauce.

Thank you Claude & Crabb-people & George & alvin & Jessy! ;-D

Hmm, no, Jessy, that sounds like a job for our resident parody Zen master, Green Bloodied Hound Dogs! ;-)

Jessy, I know that already --- and that is why I said no, Jessy, that sounds like a job for our resident parody Zen master, Green Bloodied Hound Dogs! ;-)
