The Lyrics

Say “Goodbye” to Bush—there won’t be a third to blight
the house that is White. . .not cheering, the crowds, who just didn’t love
his spiel and his mien.

Booted in the tush, he just couldn’t get it right;
his effacing self don’t work in the hood of foul food fight.

Folks listened so somnolently,
were not wowed by J-E-B and his team—
too lame was his scheme.
The only sound that they would hear
was tepid talk. . .no screaming jeers.
Did the dude have a chance? No, never.

Say “Goodbye” to Bush—there won’t be a third in sight
in the house that’s White. Not searing his sounds; tried to stay above
the raw blah-blah-blah. . . .

Folks listened so somnolently,
disavowed tame J-E-B and his team—
his game wasn’t mean.
The only sound that they would hear
was tepid talk. . .no screeching jeers.
Did they dude have a prayer? That’s “never.”

Say “Goodbye” to Bush—he blew millions in a flight
of fantasy. Dirges have now been sounded for the ex gov.,
whom folks just didn’t love,
who could not rise above.
Numbers gave him the shove.

Wish I had some of the money Jeb wasted on his campaign. This is not the season for moderation. Nice mellow song to convey the mellow message that just could not cut through the hype.

Jeb Bush's son, George P. Bush, has been mentioned as a possible future candidate. Although, I agree that we have probably reached Peak Bush.
