The Lyrics

Assuming this gets posted on Saturday, March 3, that's the number of days left in the Bush Maladministration.
(instrumental opening)

I keep a close watch on this count of mine.
I count those days on down all the time.
Until it's zero, we're still in a bind.
This count of mine: 689!

I find it very, very easy to be true.
That's because I'm not George W.
I guess you'd say, he's a fool, won't you?
This count of mine: 689!

Just as sure as his Side's Dark and mine is Light
I can't wait until he's long gone out of sight.
The happiness of no more radical right.
This count of mine: 689!

I count by calculator and by hand
down the days when again is free our land
and we'll get rid of that guy that we can't stand.
This count of mine: 689!

I keep a close watch on this count of mine.
I count those days on down all the time.
Until it's zero, we're still in a bind.
This count of mine: 689!
No, I won't do one for every day left. Well, maybe the last hundred or so.
