The Lyrics

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt. He was President 100 years ago. If he were brought back here in a time machine, he would be disgusted with what the Republican Party has become since his time.
Slighting soldiers with a lie.
Fearing they will see him cry.
His turn came, he did not try.
'Tis the tale of the Yellow Guy.

Yellow streak goes down his back.
Unilateral attack.
On the Lincoln he did fly.
But he's still a Yellow Guy.

Trained to live off Daddy's hand.
Trained that wombat, should be canned.
We should say, "Hey, George, bye-bye!
Because you're a Yellow Guy."

Yellow streak goes down his back.
Unilateral attack.
On the Lincoln he did fly.
But he's still a Yellow Guy.

Back at home, a young wife waits.
Her soldier boy has met his fate.
He has died for those obsessed
leaving her this last request:

"Tell our son, vote Democrat.
Republicans, enough of that.
He'll be a man with head held high.
No more shame of the Yellow Guy."
Georgie: Dis-missed!

When you said yellow guy, I instantly thought of that little dude from the AOL commercials. Wrong yellow.

chuck, could we change "how funny" to "how inventive"or something along those lines? i'm seeing a lot of good, inventive parodies that aren't funny. 5's for this one, with the funny-inventive conversion
