The Lyrics

I tried to turn "A Boy Named Sue" by Johnny Cash into "A Boy Named Trent," but it didn't work out. Then I heard "Pressure" on the radio, and remembered that Trent is Lott's middle name, and that his real first name is Chester (as Casey Stengel would say, "And you can look it up!"), and the song practically wrote itself in about five minutes.
You had to go disgrace yourself, Chester.
Put your career up on the shelf, Chester.
You only had to run the G.O.P.
But you have come to a place
where the only thing you see are microphones in your face
and you have to quit now, Chester!

The media makes you annoyed, Chester.
But there's a truth you can't avoid, Chester.
You turned Ol' Strom's run into your crusade.
Now here you are with your faith
and your Ku Klux Klan advice.
You have such antiquated ways
and you have to quit now, Chester!

All screwed up and no place to go.
Bull Run, Vicksburg, what do you know?
Every day is Friday 13.
Chester Trent Lott, why you so mean?

(instrumental break)

Don't ask for help, you're all alone, Chester!
You are a racist to the bone, Chester!
I'm sure you'll have some redneck rationale
But here you are in the ring
and Ali is coming on!
Nowhere to look but inside
where you're such a loser, Chester!

Out goes Trent Lott, in comes Bill Frist.
Still a chairman, slap on the wrist.
Bad write-up in Time Magazine.
Chester Trent Lott, why you so mean?

(instrumental break)

I'm sure you have some redneck rationale.
But here you are with your faith
and your Ku Klux Klan advice.
Even Bush says, "Go away!"
And you have to quit now, Chester!
Y'all go home now, Chester!
