The Lyrics

It's been a long time since I wrote a parody for Mr. "Read My Lips: No New Taxes," the first George Bush. This is his entry for P3: The Presidential Parody Project. I was gonna do "Yale House Rock" - "Spider Smith is playing on the saxophone, he's a brand-new member of the Skull & Bones" - but this is better.
A long, long time ago
on your Convention Day
you made a promise then.
Loved what you say.

Those lips I read, old George
red, white and blue.
"Taxes ain't sweet, my friends.
I won't raise them on you."

You saw those deficits
that Ronnie left for you.
Something had to be done
and soon, you knew.

Those lips I read, old George
red, white and blue.
"Taxes ain't sweet, my friends.
I won't raise them on you."

Jobs going down the tubes.
Go do what you hate most.
So "READ MY LIPS, I LIED"
said the New York Post.

Those lips I read, old George
making us blue.
Taxes ain't sweet, old George
but look, our jobs are through.

Go blame the Congress, now.
You probably blame them still.
Just one more promise broke.
You lost to Bill.

Those lips I read, old George
making us blue.
Taxes ain't sweet, old George
and look, your job is through.

Is that your little boy.
He thinks a lot like you.
And on Election Day
we'll tell him too:

Those lips I read, young George
making us blue.
Tax cuts ain't sweet, young George
and look, your job is through.
Will I apologize for this Senior Bush Bash? Not gonna do it. Not... gonna... do it. Wouldn't be prudent at this juncture. Or any other.

Glad to see you're not having problems with the "parody thing"!

Of course, not, Ravyn. Gotta stay the course. Gotta stay the course. Wouldn't be prudent to stop before I reach a thousand posts of laughs.
