The Lyrics

This is my first song parody. I've been visiting this site for some time now, and I'm a huge fan of the side-splitting parodies on this site. Let me know what you think. I hate politics, so I thought an apolitical song would be a good start.
When the left and the right, are up for a fight, Campaigns.

When the ballot is full, and you're hearing the bull, Campaigns.

The mudslinging blows interupt all your shows, Campaigns.

Vote for me, Vote for me, Vote for me...., Campaigns.

When the TV debate makes you annoyed and irate, Campaigns.

You see Georgie or John, and think, "What else is on?", Campaigns.

The posters all stare even when you don't care, Campaigns.

Vote for me, Vote for me, Vote for me...., Campaigns.

If I'm not signed up to vote, campaigners at my throat, Campaigns.

There no time and no place for those forms in my face, Campaigns.

When the election is done, I'll smile until the next one, Campaigns.

Vote for me, Vote for me, Vote for me...., Campaigns.

I can't stand, I can't stand, I can't stand...., Campaigns.

I know where you're coming from... not bad for a first parody, but aren't there only two couplets before the "she don't lie, she don't lie" bit? But I did like the line 'You see Georgie or John, and think, "What else is on?"' :-)

Finally, a song for the people who are so fed up with the presidential situation that they plan to write "None of the Above" in on the ballot! 5's all round....

Thanks for the input Phil. I wasn't sure about the couplets because I've never heard the original, only parodies. :-D Thanks Ingeborg, I am a true impartial and I'm glad I'm not the only one.

Pacing is off, and there are only three lines in each verse (the last one being "she don't lie, she don't lie, she don't lie, cocaine"). But we all have to start somewhere. It helps if you can hear the original then do the parody. 4-5-5 for your first work, hope you will submit more (I sent my first one in today, should come out shortly).

I think this was a very good first attempt on a parody. Political parodies are hard to do sometimes, even if you have good lyrics and a good song. I gave you fives for the attampt! 5-5-5.

Funny stuff, Scathe. They are a campaign in the butt.

(ABC-C) Yeah - I wish my first parody was written half as well. Fine job Scathe.

C - Doubles as a campaign song to rally votes in the C round... cool!

(ABC) Very good. Also very appropriate here right now (UK elections in a little over a week, and I'm already sick of the campaigning :0))
