The Lyrics

DKTOS? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsrDv3K7RNI
Send me back to the capitol city
Where the perks are great and the intern's pretty
[Please] Oh, wont you [go] please go and vote [vote]

Send me back to the capitol city
Where I dip my hands in the public kitty
[Please] Oh, wont you [go] please go and vote [vote]

It's election time I'm out on the street
I'm makin' my case to folks I meet
A political race, that's why I'm actin' so sweet
Forget that I'm accused of crimes
Vote me in again one more time

I get richer most every day
From those who need something from the U.S. of A. you know
I'm a politician who can play the game
And people who just don't have a dime
Get back to the end of the line

Send me back to the capitol city
'Cause I'll shake your hand and I'll kiss your kiddie
Oh, wont you please go and vote - yeah yeah

Send me back where the bill that I'm signing
Gives me toilet seats with a sable lining
Please go vote

Here in my chair in congressional chamber
Sell my vote to the highest bidder
Attorney General says he'll sic the law on me
A couple of "associates" go break his knees
Now it seems he's gone absentee

Send me back to the capitol city
Where I hide my graft in a subcommittee
Please go vote - yeah yeah

Send me back where the living is hearty
And the politics are just one big party
Oh, wont you please go and vote - yeah

Election day
And so I say
Every cliche
For your ok

Don't pay attention to my po-lice chart
My bags are packed I'm ready to depart
I say vote me back in and I will make a new start
I know that your votes are all mine - everytime
I say "help me" and you get in line

Send me back to the capitol city
Where a trillion bucks is just itty-bitty
Please go vote, yeah yeah

Send me back where I'm spendin' your taxes
On Hawaiian trips and bikini waxes
Oh, won't you please go and vote

Send me back to the capitol city
Where the job can wait while I hang with Diddy
Please go vote, yeah yeah

Send me back where I live like a baron
While I make you think that I'm really carin'
Oh, won't you please go and vote, vote

I want to go
I want more dough
Oh, won't you please go and vote

I want to be
There in D.C.
Oh, won't you please go and vote

Send me back to the capitol city
Where my plumbing's done by G. Gordon Liddy
Please go vote

Send me back where it's easy to fudge it
Put a yacht for me in the yearly budget
Oh, won't you please go and vote

Send me back, oh yeah
Won't ya, Mack
Oh, won't you please go and vote

Land of the free
At least... for me
Oh won't you please go and vote

Vote absentee
As long as it is for me
Oh, oh please go vote

Send me back to the capitol city
Where the bribes are big and it makes me giddy
Oh, won't you please go and vote

I want to go
But you vote no
Oh, why did you go and vote

No!
Recount!

This was a pretty epic political parody and one where it just doesn't make fun of one side but politics in general scores alright with me. I loved the line: "Land of the free/ At least... for me" as well as "Election day/ And so I say/ Every cliche/ For your ok". Great stuff here Rex.

Such artistry in the various chorus changes that the OS begged for. Very nice work, Rex.

(Artistry) Got some great lines in here, Rex, though I didn't understand much of it due to being Australian and not caring about US politics. 555 anyway.

(Artistry) This can be applied to Australian politics too Mr TCOP. . .Rex this was fantastic, seriously funny, and with the 4th of July coming up it's about as appropriate as it can get, great job to a kick @$$ song.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is how a political parody is done correctly and funny. Top notch work Rex.
