The Lyrics

In a weird mood lately, since I'm on drugs. Just listening to too much news.
Was a funny day
Not a vet killed in Iraq
Not a gasoline price increase
All the trains stayed on the track
Twas a funny day
All the pundits in the press
And the radio talk show hosts
Seemed to gripe a little less

He was a stupid man
Always in the D.C. news
Never elected clean
With nothing loose but screws
Never elected clean
With nothing loose but screws

Was a funny day
Not a bomb was in the sky
Not a terrorist plot was hot
No more people gassing high
Twas a funny day
No more ten dollar movie
And the Senators righting wrongs
And a healthy economy

Her name was Aniston
She was no special girl
Press called her boring
And no crazed press around her did swirl
Press called her boring
And no crazed press around her did swirl

Was a funny day
English language no surprise
Not an immigrant story told
How we all should sympathize
Twas a funny day
Not a lawyer's giant fees
And the courtrooms all moving fast
Like constitution guarantees
