The Lyrics

Oh, sod it. I never wanted to be a Senator - I want to run for President! Leaping from state to state as I campaign for the highest office in the land - The giant Texas! Utah! The lofty windy Wisconsin! The Californian flowering Schwarzenegger! Iowa load of money! With my best VP by my side, we'd sing! Sing! SING!

I'm a maverick and I'm OK
My veep's alright, and she isn't gay

He's a maverick and he's OK,
His veep's far right, and she sure ain't gay

I smile and wave, I make a speech
I go to the lavatory.
I'm glad that I chose Sarah
Palin as my V.P.

He smiles and waves, he makes a speech
Goes to the lavatory.
We're all glad he chose Sarah
Palin as his V.P.

I'm/he's a maverick and I'm/he's OK
My veep's not bright, but she looks.. wha-hey!

Afghanistan, I have a plan:
I'll send out loads more tanks
We'll borrow all the money
'Cause now we own the banks

Afghanistan, has a great plan
To send a load more tanks
By borrowing the money
From our own bailed-out banks????

I'm/he's a maverick and I'm/he's OK
His veep's less bright than Bush.. oy vey

I look like I don't want the job
My body doesn't lie
My V.P. is a girlie,
She'll run things when I die

He looks like he don't want the job..
This campaign's been a lie...

I'm/he's a maverick and I'm/he's OK
My veep's not bright, she'll be prez some day

He's a maverick and he's OKaaaaaaaaaa
His veep's far right, can she win? No way

Hilarious .. and dead on target re the ambitious campaigned-as-if-for-high-school-homecoming-queen Ms. P. Bravo!

If by any chance Sarah Palin ends up president she'll run the country in between having babies and baking cookies.

:-) Thanks guys..
Alvin - It would be fun to do a video for this: all we'd need is McCain, Palin and a dozen or so recognizeable Republicans to agree and we'd be away...
