The Lyrics

It's almost time, people! Come November 4, we'll have a new Executive Scapegoat of these so-called "United" States. But, unless you want us to end up like that movie "Swing Vote", make your voice heard! To get you psyched, take a gander at this. Share and Enjoy!
VOTE!
VOTE!

Now on the left are Democrats
And they're a bunch of asses, you bet
On the right are Republicans
The last eight years they cannot forget
Oy vey

We gotta rock on to Election Avenue
Just who can take us higher?
Oh, we gotta rock on to Election Avenue
Who gets to feul our ire?

Workin' hard for minimum wage
Can't afford to fill up our tanks
Stock market's back in the stone age
Can't get cash for the banks
Good God

We gotta rock on to Election Avenue
Iraq is still on fire
Oh, we gotta rock on to Election Avenue
Iran may be a pyre

Go vote!
Go vote!
Go vote!
Go vote!
Go vote!

We gotta rock on to Election Avenue
The choice makes me perspire
Oh, we gotta rock on to Election Avenue
Neither one I desire

Who will we blame for this country?
Will it be Barack or John?
Dealin' with Biden or Palin
Might be too much for anyone
Oh no

We gotta rock on to Election Avenue
Who is the better liar?
We gotta rock on to Election Avenue
Our situation's dire!

Out at the polls...
Out at the polls...
Out with the ballots...
(To) Get out of this hellhole...

Oh, we gotta rock on to Election Avenue
Just who can take us higher?
Hey, we gotta rock on to Election Avenue
(Go vo-o-o-o-o-o-o-te)
Who gets to feul our ire?
(Vote early and often)
We gotta rock on to Election Avenue
(Vote for who is right)
Who is the better liar? (Election Avenue)
(Vote for our new Com-man-der-in-Chief)
We gotta rock on to Election Avenue
(Who, for us, will fight?)
Our situation's dire! (Election Avenue)

(fade out)
And, remember, if you don't vote, you can't b**ch!!

Here's what I think about the election: If Obama is elected, all will be good, and that stupid war might even end. On the other hand, if McCain is elected, I think that things might go from bad to much worse, he will most certainly die in office, and we would end up with a MILF who abused her power as governor of Alaska and will most certainly abuse it in the Oval Office as president. 555

Outstanding, Chris!! You sure hit the mark!! I especially love the "Who is the better liar?" line in your song. Eventually we got to vote for the lesser of two evils. I still look forward to Election Day 2008 though. Excellent parody you wrote! 555!!!

OK, everybody, I think that we have to worry about Obama getting assassinated if and when he becomes president. Obama should take caution traveling through the South and certain parts of the Mid West, since he is black and Muslim.
