The Lyrics

There's two things I know for sure ...
I was sent here from heaven,
And my motives are pure

As I file my lawsuits this very night,
And pray for a recount as I close my eyes;
And I thank God for this confusion, chaos and strife
Oh, but most of all...
For butterfly ballots that are just not fair
Keeping this whole election all up the air.

"Poke the hole beside the arrow
It's one inch wide;
Many voters got it wrong
But they sure tried!"

Oh, with all that they got wrong,
They could have done something right
We deserve a revote in those counties
Those butterfly ballots our plight

November 26th today...
And Secretary Harris
Took our chances away;
There's no fairness, she's the GOP's girl
Her perfume and make-up,
Even clash with her pearls
Trying her wings out in a great big world.
But I remember...

Butterfly ballots that are just not fair
Keeping this whole election all up the air.

"You know how much I love you all,
But if you don't mind,
I'm gonna put the nation though some pain this time."
Since I simply can't be wrong,
I'll prove it in a court room fight
And turn all the attention
To butterfly ballots tonight

All the precious time,
Oh, like the wind the years go by,
Precious butterfly ...
Spread your wings and fly.

I'll change my mind today,
I'll make a promise and I'll throw it away;
Standing at the camera just staring at you,
I'll tell you what I'm thinking
But its just not true
I just don't like losing to a Bush

The supreme court should make them...
Recount my counties even though it's not fair
Keeping this whole election all up the air.

It's my turn now to lead this nation
It's my time;
Do my practices become a statesman?
Please don't cry."

Oh, with all that I've done wrong,
I surely will win this fight;
I deserve to steal this election
With butterfly ballots tonight

You couldn't ask God for more, man I am what love is
I know I should really let it go, but I'll always remember
As the nation is in mourning, those butterfly ballots...
