The Lyrics

Farewell and good riddance to Senator Ted "Dead" Kennedy. This is my 50th parody and I wanted to make a special dead-ication. Everyone at amiright knows how fond I am of this clown Senator. Wasn't he something? Yeah, a piece of work and a jerk! Someone please grab me a box of Kleenex tissues I want to cry like Hillary... Boo-Hoo-Hoo!
Ted found himself in trouble with the drowning of Mary Kopechne
Another round of chemo, Kennedy
And in his hours of drunkenness, he was to blind to see
Slurring words with gin 'n rum, Kennedy

Kennedy, Kennedy, tipsy S.O.B.
Can't figure out why he's so dumb, Kennedy

And the drunken besotted liberal with left-wing insanity
He's dead from cancer, Kennedy
And though tumors are twisted, he had no chance with chemo therapy
Oh that dirty bastard, Kennedy

Kennedy, Kennedy, tipsy S.O.B.
Can't figure out why he's so dumb, Kennedy

And they've always had dirty laundry, he takes delight in moonshine whiskey
Moonshine again tomorrow, Kennedy
And I wonder what happened to Martha Moxley
He took away our freedom, Kennedy

Kennedy, lie to me, Ken-"uh"-dee, the S.O.B.
Can't figure out why he's so dumb, Kennedy

Hey, JP, you don't need to be so snippy...altho I do think this guy's parodies need improvement. I don't like the overall tone of this one, nor the "Dead-icaton" wordplay. I was disappointed by this one, as usual. I haven't decided what to vote yet.

JP - I write out here and I do not appreciate the hate and vulgarity, so please raise your intelligence level a bit with your vocabulary..

: Poli-tick-ly Incorrect - There are ways to get your point across and you seem to be making a personal attack on the man and his family. Why not try to make it SNL funny. You'll get a better reception if you do. You sound way too angry with this parody. I have no love for Ted Kennedy but still the parody is just wrong.

I'm back for a little while, and I can't say I'm too pleased with this parody. While the pacing was fair, it could have been better, and it was not funny at all. I agree with Rafeal's and Guy's comments 100%, and I gave this a 3 for pacing and 1s on overall and funny.

The pacing is a bit off; the general message is there, but it would have been better to have used his actual evils rather than his disease. ... any reason you didn't read the multiple anti-Kennedy eulogies that Fiddlegirl and myself did on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday? ... Right target, not the best song. Threes across.

btw, I tried to report JP's comment, but apparently it's already been reported. It will disappear as soon as the admin or an editor gets to it.

JP: Be careful what you wish for. Karma just might bring it back to you. Criticize the song, not the author. You only lend more sympathy to the author and his song with your attack. Did you think that what you said somehow defended Kennedy?

It's quite amusing watching liberalism get buried- one Kennedy at a time. It's too bad that the bleoved socialized healthcare bill wasn't passed in time to save poor old Ted. Of course, he wouldn't settle for the public plan like everyone else. I guess taxpayers had to pay for his brain surgery, too. In my opinion, those brain surgeons should have rewired Ted's brain years ago!
