The Lyrics

I've been inspired to jump on the Bash Mitt bandwagon by David Letterman's ongoing Romney riffs: "This guy looks like a greeter at a casino, the picture in the frame when you buy it, the maƮtre d' who tells you, you can't have a table. . . ."
Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye,
Smile, smile, smile, smile, smile, smile,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
Gone be the Zombie.

Gone be Mitt Romney,
Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye.
Guess he finally saw the light,
Bulb, bulb, bulb, bulb, bulb, bulb, bulb.
Gone be the zombie
Smile, smile, smile, smile, smile, smile.
He don't get the house of white,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

There goes the baby,
Whines as he parts,
For naught, his smarts.

So, gone be the zombie.
He'll cry "bye-bye."
Gone be Mitt Romney.

Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye,
Smile, smile, smile, smile, smile, smile,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
Gone be the Zombie.

Gone be Mitt Romney;
His quixotic quest is through.
Gone be the Zombie;
He'll no more pander to you.

He must feel sorrow:
From his deep pants
He had to borrow
Millions. . .no chance had he to make
It. He's gone--still I quake. . .

Promised has Romney
To run in 2012.

like all horror shows, it is left open for a parody

And who's more bashable than Mitt? One's almost going to miss him. Good job. :-) (Scary thing about Romney, tho', is that over the last half-century or so, GOP nominee runners-up who've lost the general election have won their party's nomination for the next go-round. Romney probably knows this and considers his defeat now a guarantee (ironically Dylanesque?) of victory in 2012. :-( :-)
