The Lyrics

We've got to keep re-tabulating

Election Two Thousand
There's some growing unease
Voters need choices that they can still believe in
But then they fall for the two-party cheese
Picking a "winner" is just nonsense
'Cause if you want a change you gotta vote your conscience
If one guy's stances and your viewpoints don't match
You shouldn't just give up, just give up,
just give up, just give up

Hey, all this seems too close to me
Do over!
Florida's re-tabulating
Hey, Palm Beach ain't that darn confused!
Gore called Bush
Retracted his congratulating

Hey-ey-ey, they'll both take our rights
Don't give up on the 3rds, but it won't change overnigh-e-ite
Hey-ey-ey, get out and vote!

When the U.S. was created
They limited the right
To vote to only men who owned lots of land
On the basis that the others weren't bright
Now look at today, the way things are rigged
Thugs get their say, and the homeless get cigs
I can't believe I only count as much as Freddie Phelps
The nation really needs help, really needs help,
really needs

Hey, some voters cannot read
Yet they count!
And my vote just got negated.
Hey, enough "equality"
Why bother?
My income will just get raided

Hey-ey-ey, this may sound elite
But telling the insane how to vote is just a chea-ea-eat
Hey-ey-ey, get out and vote!

Back in nineteen-sixty
The Presidential race
Went down to the wire in Illinois, and
JFK won, Nixon's put in his place
Accusations of fraud circulated then
Nix let Jack stay, 'cause they both were good friends
Did Dick know generosity would change the country's fate?
Because of falsified votes, falsified votes, falsified

Hey, in nineteen sixty-three
Just think now
Dick could've been assassinated
Hey, we're talkin' history
One score back
"They" tried again with Ronald Reagan

Hey-ey-ey, don't put the past behind
Sure the count was close, this ain't no time to just unwi-ye-ind
Hey-ey-ey, get out and vote!
