The Lyrics

This works better with the original by The Boss of the Blues than with the more familiar cover by Bill Haley & the Comets, both from 1954. We had an all-Republican government that year, too. Worked a little better, but that's because Ike was a golf nut, not an idiot.
(piano intro)

Get out of that bed
wash blood from your hands.
Get ouf of that bed
wash blood from your hands.
George Dubya Bush
ain't nothin' that you understands.

You wearin' those boots but
the mud comes squishin' through.
You wearin' those boots but
the mud comes squishin' through.
You can just squint your eyes
but this land don't belong to you.

I believed you're a silver-tongue devil
and now I know.
I believed you're a silver-tongue devil
and now I know.
The more you cut taxes
the faster my money goes.

Ah...
Fake, battle and soul.
Fake, battle and soul.
Fake, battle and soul.
Fake, battle and soul.

You don't get none right.
You put us in a hole.

(instrumental break)

I'm like a real broke cat
workin' in a Wal-Mart store.
I'm like a real broke cat
workin' in a Wal-Mart store.
I can't support my kid.
Sent to Iraq, he's now no more.

Ah...
Fake, battle and soul.
Fake, battle and soul.
Fake, battle and soul.
Fake, battle and soul.

You don't get none right.
You put us in a hole.

Our debt is over the hill.
Our wages down beneath.
Our debt is over the hill.
Our wages down beneath.
And I roll my eyes
wanna knock out all your teeth.

Ah...
Fake, battle and soul.
Fake, battle and soul.
Fake, battle and soul.
Fake, battle and soul.

You don't get none right.
You put us in a hole.

Fake, battle and soul!

This kicks with the right politics

Obviously, the guy who posted under my name -- on a completely different topic, no less -- is too stupid to know that there's no 6th base. But then, he probably can't even get to first base. Probably due to the tiny size of his bat.

So who wrote this parody then? The REAL Michael Pacholek or an IMPOSTER Michael Pacholek? (i'e could be Mr 1s, Fitu Petaia or George Hamlinton IV in disguise)?
Ack Jabramoff - November 27, 2006 - Report this comment
The person who said "jeter's on 6th" is the imposter. I think Mike himself wrote the PARODY.

We know it wasn't Fitu. His imagination isn't even THAT good. He makes Blessranger look like Malcolm by comparison.
