The Lyrics

A British woman, whose name I've forgotten, once said that the difference between Brits and Americans is that Americans feel the need, the need for speed. For example, she points out, Brits "stand for election," while Americans "run for office."
Young voter, the subject of Arnold's fantasy.
She wants him so badly, though he's in G.O.P.
Inside her, there's longing to not be Gray Davis.
She don't know that Bush is the real big deathly kiss.

Don't stand, don't stand for, don't stand for election!
Don't stand, don't stand for, don't stand for election!

Her friends are suspicious, you know how voters get.
Sometimes it's very easy to make a sucker's bet.
Temptation, frustration, so bad at budget "lie."
Dry land and dry humor, he hopes this stuff will fly.

Don't stand, don't stand for, don't stand for election!
Don't stand, don't stand for, don't stand for election!

Loose talk in the cloakroom, he fails each time he'll try.
Strong words in the pressroom, the nasty questions fly.
It's no use, he's blown it, gets reality checks
just like that imposter living in Crawford, Tex!

Don't stand, don't stand for, don't stand for election!
Don't stand, don't stand for, don't stand for election!
(repeat 'til fade)
