The Lyrics

as sung by another "popular" parody artist
(instrumental intro)

He'll be stinging
Then he's binging
He'll be stinging

Why bet on this clown
he don't have a plan
he may get America blown
Why bet on this clown
he don't have a plan
he may get America blown

Why bet on this clown
he don't have a plan
he may get America blown
Why bet on this clown
he don't have a plan
he may get America blown

Missing his mind anyway
Missing his mind anyway

He thinks it's risky to think
He thinks NAFTA thinks
He thinks loggers think
He thinks outsiders think
He thinks the wrongs that remind him
Of his hood crimes
He thinks the wrongs that remind him
Of his big crimes

"Oh shrubby toy
Shrubby toy
Shrubby toy..."

Why bet on this clown
he don't have a plan
he may get America blown
Why bet on this clown
he don't have a plan
he may get America blown

Why bet on this clown
he don't have a plan
he may get America blown
Why bet on this clown
he don't have a plan
he may get America blown

Missing his mind anyway
Missing his mind anyway

He thinks it's risky to think
He thinks NAFTA thinks
He thinks loggers think
He thinks outsiders think
He thinks the wrongs that remind him
Of his hood crimes
He thinks the wrongs that remind him
Of his big crimes

"Don't lie, dummy
Blast Iraq i abhore..."

Why bet on this clown
he don't have a plan
he may get America blown

He'll be stinging
Then he's binging
He'll be stinging

Why bet on this clown
he don't have a plan
he may get America blown (Repeat 5x)

((instrumental ending)

I have read Bill Tong. And believe me, you're no Bill Tong.

I think you mean, "Frankly, you're no Bill Tong."

Thanks, bro..i'm NO Bill Tong. That, fine sir, is a compliment of the highest calliber. I could try to really emulate him & be repetitious to the point of mundanity with all my parody. Yet i strive to be a tad more open-minded, so don't have a million variations of "Bush/Republicans are Stupid/racist" lyrics in my arsenal.

After reading your anti-Clinton parodies, you're a bit too over the top to be "open-minded."
