The Lyrics

The original song's author, Peter Seeger, who turns 90 next month, would probably appreciate this.
Well, when I was a young man, was called "socialist"
but a Democrat President's what we all missed.
So we found one to try and we tried him and then
and then...
oh, Lord, well we tried him again.
Although
they gave hisses, twitters and whine.
They gave
oy vey, hisses, twitters and whine.
(Twitters and whine!)

Well, this new President, he sure fit the Bill
and he fixed up the country and we're so grateful still.
The other party just couldn't stand
but then, whoops, oh Lord, they could talk to the hand!
Because
they gave hisses, twitters and whine.
They gave
oy vey, hisses, twitters and whine.
(Twitters and whine!)

Well, now, Bill had to leave after his second term
left the country he loved feeling stronger and firm.
Tried to clear a path to the White House for Gore
but then, whoops, oh Lord, something else was in store.
Because
they gave hisses, twitters and whine.
They gave
oy vey, hisses, twitters and whine.
(Twitters and whine!)

Well, our children had grown up by 2004
and they wanted to kick George Bush out the door.
Maybe got started a little bit late
and so, whoops, oh Lord, look to 2008.
Because
they gave hisses, twitters and whine.
They gave
oy vey, hisses, twitters and whine.
(Twitters and whine!)

Well, now we got a good man and he's running things
but he faces such anger from all the right wing.
Hears a lot of lies, and he gets a lot of pain.
But then, whoops, in 2012, he'll win it all again.
Because
they've failed, hisses, twitters and whine.
They failed
with all their...
hisses...
twitters and
whine!
