The Lyrics

Way up North (north to Alaska),
Way up North (north to Alaska),
North to Alaska--can see Russia from froze lawn.

Big John north skedaddled;
He had fear that he was screwed.
The base wasn't happy--
They were gettin' kinda rude.
He found a new con: give 'em
A clown from where it's damn cold,
Who's got a lipsticked mouth 'n'
Some say, by John was North Pole'd.

John crossed his Hasidic mouthpiece;
He had jilted that gent, Joe.
That act was kind of meshugge--
For Ms 'silla he did go. . .
Got a daughter who's humped and with child,
But she ain't hitched to her hon.
But John McCain didn't give a damn. . .
Immaculate conception.

Where oil rivers are windin',
It's 'cause o' lord's mindin'. . .
North to arapture: to be saved, the rush is on.
North to arapture,
Upward rush when the world's gone.

John turned her loose, but media were banned.
On youtube she got witch-proofed
By layin' on of hands.
She said the oil that's flowin'
Underneath this frozen land
Is due to plan of god; this place
Is the launchpad when we scram.
Better scram from the lower 48 when it's time.
Remember, He'll give you snubs,
You don't toe the line
The chosen he'll ferry. . .milk-and-honey home.
Jews, atheists, Muslims fry--
Also those who kowtow to Rome.

Where oil rivers are windin',
'sticked nutcase he's findin'.
North to Arapture. . .heathen Russians will be gone.
North to Arapture. . .got her russet lipstick on.

Way up north. . . .

Bravissimo, Gianni! The only good Palin is a Brit named "MIchael."

Captain Russet, I'll admit that I don't 'get ' some of these lines, however, my fav was mcCain's " Immaculate Concetion".

Pirate Jack, Oh, I'm sure that you can indeed " a-lewd-a-date "; as you've been doing so for decades! !

Sir, or perhaps deNude-A-Date ? ?

Was expecting a different kind of rapture, but still a great choice of OS and super title switch, well-executed. Yes, she's a bit fey (does that coincidence of adjective and name prove the existence of God, or what?), but of all the Palienated genre, this one blips highest on the Wasillascope. 555
BR> p.s. Where the eff is everybody? Had another political polemic to post, but... ???
