Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

The Eastern World is oriental
Violence flarin' - occidental
You're old enough to kill, not sentimental
You don't believe in war but dig what's regimental
DieBold's a winning ticket with voters temperamental

And you tell me over, and over, and over again my friend
You don't believe the Burning Bush has gone mental

That number nine-eleven ain't coincidental
The hand that pulled the trigger was governmental
When the button is pushed it won't be accidental
Penitentiaries are states, and states are compartmental
Now the fastest-growing business is goon squad rental

And you tell me over, and over, and over again my friend
You don't believe Lon Chaney's experimental

Yeah, my blood's so mad, my skin's so pigmental
I hate the French people and I'm sure their scent'll
Come from them eating cheese, Cantal or Emmental
Ain't it funny how racism is so elemental
Just take the example of my assistant dental
She dresses like Abe but calls herself Yentl
With a name like that, well, how could she be gentle?

And you tell me over, and over, and over again my friend
You don't believe the ADL has gone mental

And think of all the words that end in "mental"
Then take a look around - it's environmental!
The privately-owned Fed is fundamental
It's a staggering con-trick, a rip-off monumental
Relayed through education, both school and parental
Where Homer and Mickey Mantle are instrumental
Dumbing-down is a sin and it's highly detrimental

But you tell me over and over and over again my friend
You don't believe that Henry Moon is judgemental
No, you don't believe that Henry Moon has gone mental
