The Lyrics

I admit it, I swiped this idea from Bill Maher. The great thing about swiping ideas from Bill Maher is that he will never, EVER ask God to smite you for it.
(instrumental opening)

Petty woman.
Walking down the street.
Petty woman.
I don't want to meet.
Petty woman.

I don't believe you.
You're not the truth.
No one could be as nuts as you.

No mercy.

Petty woman.
You won't pardon me.
Petty woman.
I couldn't help but see.
Petty woman.

That you're as crazy as can be.
You won't get a vote from me.


Petty woman, stop a while.
Petty woman, talks with bile.
Petty woman, keep your smile from me.

Petty woman, GOP.
Petty woman, not for me.
Petty woman, say you'll stray from me.

'Cause who needs you?
You're too far right.
Go quit me baby.
You lie toni...

Petty woman.
Just walk on by.
Petty woman.
You make us cry.
Petty woman.

Just walk away!

Oy vey.

If she's the way it will be, oy vey.

I wish that would not be our fate.
Maybe in four more years...

But wait!
What do I see?

Some shotgun ma-tri-mo-ny!

Is that grandkid two or three?

Petty woman!
Was I too hard on you, Sarah? "In what respect, Mike?"

Michael - Good parody...and the line of ther year in your intro! Perhaps some of my strangeness comes from the fact that I have an atheist godfather. ;D

I shoulda thought of this. Great job on a worthy target.

You left out the "grrrrrrrrrr" from the mama grizzly bear. My brother always liked imitating that part of the song. OMR, I like that line about "atheist godfather".

In reference to what Patrick said, instead of a grizzly growl how about using a BLLEEEEHHHHCCCCHHH! in it's place?
