The Lyrics

Aren't they sweet together? OS (TV opera production, circa 1987): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApZ0lqGIF74 OS excerpt (1959 movie): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lj1ZwCTHxIA&NR=1
JOHN McCAIN:
Sarah, you’re my V.P. now.
You are, you are,
And you must pull in the women and youth
And win their votes.
Mask the wrinkles on my face—
Erase—
Because Alaska’s governor is cute and young.
Oh Sarah, Sarah,
Our new victory has just begun.

SARAH PALIN:
Johnny, I’m your V.P. now.
I am, I am,
But I ain’t going to Washington
‘Less you win the votes.
There’s no wrinkles in my prime,
And I’m
Against abortion, for tax abatin’,
Against gay marriage, for N.R.A.-ing.
Johnny, I’m your V.P. now
And come November…

Choosing time, convention time,
And voting time and swear-in time…

JOHN McCAIN:
Choosing time, convention time,
And voting time and swear-in time.
Sarah, make me Prez.

[Sarah repeats her stanza while John sings in counterpart]

Sarah, be my V.P.!
Come January
We’ll make the White House ours—
Right-of-center pow’rs, for the next four years!
Oh, they’ll forget the Bushes!
McCain and Palin! McCain and Palin!
We’ll share the spoils,
Less leaning on foreign oil.
We’ll make this land safe again
And prosp’rous…

SARAH:
Choosing time, convention time,
And voting time, and swear-in time.

JOHN:
Choosing time, convention time,
And voting time and swear-in time.

SARAH:
Vote G.O.P.
Win, G.O.P. !

JOHN (simultaneously):
Go, right!
Win, right!

SARAH and JOHN:
Come November, I’m telling you,
We’ll make this run,
John and Sarah,
With the White House…

SARAH:
…won!

JOHN:
Sarah, we’ll have won now!
