The Lyrics

All four of these people were in the news when I wrote this.
Jessica Lynch, Jessica Lynch
Doing the things a P-O-W can
What's she like, it's not important
Jessica Lynch
Is she a girl or is she a grunt
When she was in Iraq did she get hurt or did the hurt get her instead,
nobody knows,
Jessica Lynch

Elisabeth Smart, Elisabeth Smart
Elisabeth Smart hates Jessica Lynch
They write a book, Elisabeth wins
Elisabeth Smart

Peterson guy, Peterson guy
Guy who killed his eight month pregnant wife,
Unusually silly acting guy
Peterson guy
He's got a mistress named Amber Frey,
With a longish face and squinty eyes
Over Christmas, shaky lies!
Murdering guy,
Peterson guy

Howard Dean, Howard Dean
Nobody knows he's really mean
Shorter than an M1 carbine
Howard Dean
Will he be prez, is he full of stress
does he feel totally worthless
who came up with Howard Dean?
really mean, Howard Dean

Now you know, 'bout the people here,
But maybe if the media smears
to think that maybe you could end up here
is awfully queer...
