The Lyrics

Along with "There's a bad moon on the rise/bathroom on the right," the classic misheard lyric is "'Scuse me while I kiss the sky/kiss this guy." This is (partly) a takeoff on that. If you don't know what "purple prose" is, here's an example: (Expletive deleted) you!
Purple prose comes from my brain!
Georgie Bush acts so insane!
Acting scummy, and we all know why!
'Scuse me while I diss this guy!

Purple prose computer shows!
Bush he don't smell like a rose!
Our country's in lots of misery!
Whatever he does, that guy give some hell to me!

Help me
help John
Kerry win

Don't got no heart or soul
he's got only hard stuff
If everybody's still around, listen please
he's out of his mind
something's happening, George Bush's losing
Ohhhh, yeahhhh!
Ohhhh, yeahhhh!
Ohhhh, yeahhhh!
Ohhhh, yeahhhh!

Purple prose scanned by my eyes
taking shots at right-wing guys!
Unlike George Bush, I've got a mind!
Won't have tomorrow if he's not beat this time!

I gave you fives, because even tho' it's anti-Bush, it's not mean spirited (for once). I kind of hope that Kerry does win, just 'cus I wanna sit back and watch the chaos... :-)

You think what Georgie gave us ISN'T chaos? I guess it depends on what the definition of the word "isn't" is.

. . . come to an end. - I think this is the phrase Meriadoc was about to type before being distracted by the sound of plummeting polls. Chaos would be a step up. I'm beginning to think we're in hell. 'Scuse me but I gave this fives.

Thank you, Robert. Maybe some of these LOTR fans should loosen their pointed ears a notch. Perhaps I can put it for them this way: Imagine if Frodo's father had given Sauron money and weapons, then Frodo had sent others to destroy the ring for him, and they did, but ended up surrounded by Orcs, and Frodo told the Ents they were a bunch of surrender monkeys and he didn't need their help. And if I got any of that wrong, it's only because I haven't read and of the LOTR books or seen the movies.
