The Lyrics

Well, I put in my earbuds
Turned the radio on
Then my song was playin'
But the words were gone
Turned into a show's theme song
As though incidental
My lyrics had been wiped out
Reduced to instrumentals
Eh, oh, way to go El Rushbo

Well, I went stark raving psycho
That my melody was used
As the theme for a talk show
By a right-winger, too
I was frantic and crazed
My sensibilities
Had me aghast
Had me down on my knees
Eh, oh, way to go El Rushbo

I struck back at El Rushbo
With some pretty legalese
Full of cease and desisting
And it didn't even end with "please"
We made an agreement
That would avoid a lengthy duel
Just give the royalties
From playing it to PETA, he said "cool"
Said, eh, oh, oh, way to go El Rushbo
