The Lyrics

In all fairness, in 2000, a Republican Senator, Paul Coverdell of Georgia, died of a brain ailment. He was pretty smart, and even a decent man. But then, in his own party, either of those would make him a "minority leader."
It's so hard to get elected
'cause voters, they've expected
that you won't give 'em pain.

They're CAT-scan and MRI-ing.
Yeah, he almost left us crying.
We know our guys have a brain!

He ain't no J. Danforth Quayle.
Or Bush, who'll always fail
and is somewhat insane.

While Bush is still a-shoving
our guy, he is recov'ring.
We know our guys have a brain!

Oh, I... could tell you why
it's good to stop a bit and think.
But the other side is gonna call me "pink."
(You mean like in "red"?)
If that's what you wanna think!

So, please get well now, Tim Johnson.
South Dakota, not Wisconsin
or New Jersey, or Maine.

Back in District of Columbia
we still need you against Dumbya.
We know our guys have a brain!

A brainy parody. Somehow reminds me of a graffito I once saw in a men's restroom: "If you voted for Bush you can't shit here, 'cause your asshole's in D.C."
