The Lyrics

Robert Lund's recording went live on the Funny Music Project...today! Quelle coincidence!
Voting time
Time to give Electoral Dysfunction another try
Voting time
Maybe you're a partisan or maybe you're a little bi
Voting time
Meditate or flip a coin until the right decision comes
Voting time
Throw out all the bums; it's time for brand - new - bums

I know you just want to tax my home
I know you just want to tap my phone
I know you just won't leave me alone
So I vote

Voting time
Time for sober choices but I swear they all look better smashed
Voting time
The red side takes your freedoms and the blue side wants to take your cash
So grab your registrations
Storm your polling stations
The line's long so wear Depends
Voting time
All the next elections start the moment this election ends
(Yeah)

I know you just want to rule the globe
I know you just want to fool the globe
I know you're all proctologic probes
Still I vote

Voting time
Next term's indigestion starts when this term's fear and loathing end

(c) 2008+ Semispaffic

This is the first election I'm in that I can actually vote. It's pretty exciting!

"All the next elections start the moment this election ends" Sadly, you are correct.

Mine is in 2005, but unfortunately I wasn't registered and still isn't.

Fantastic, and timely. And you brought out a future senator, the commentator right above me!

Hey, Spaff! Just want you to know that I listened to Lund's song of your parody! LMAO at your song! I still can't stop laughing about that part about wearing Depends on a long line! Anyways, it's all good!! You get 3 unanimous votes of 5's from me!! I read a bunch of Election songs and they sound very impressive and conveys messages very well. This is one of those parodies that should be a promo for Election Day! Keep it up! BTW, I wrote an election parody called "Election Day 2008", but it contains my mixed feelings about voting. Peace out!

P.S. alvin: I should mention that the video was made by a YouTuber named Ward. I don't really know him but he's clearly a Robert Lund fan and has made a bunch of videos. Which I think is cool, of course. I've got his and other videos I've found in my favorites on my YouTube channel:
