Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Only fifteen months to go.... Yes, the 1934 OS has a verse about cocaine, which was censored in later versions.
The story is much too frequently told
And practically everyone leaves me totally cold
The endless malarky is quite a disgrace
When you turn on the ol' TV
Only thing you will ever see:
The primary race!

I get no kick from campaign
Candidate brawl doesn't thrill me at all
The pooh that they spew is untrue
I'm gonna be sick till it's through

None of them has half a brain
I'm sure that if they report one more tiff -
Wouldn't matter specific'ly who --
I'm sick of the whole frickin' crew

I'm getting sick ev'ry time I see
John Edwards primping for me
Nobody good in the GOP;
Obama and Hillary bore me

Watching them get off a plane
Lie after lie, selling pie in the sky
If elected, they'll give us the screw
I'm gonna be sick till it's through

They deserve to be spoofed; and, I too, am going to be "sick till it's through." Unfortunately, we might be sicker after it's through.

Thank Goodness. . .I thought I was never going to see you again;) "John Edwards primping for me Nobody good in the GOP" was easily my favorite line in here. . .Though I won't get my hopes up for any one candidate, considering most of the GOP candidates I have to say I agree to an extent. . .all the politicians involved this election though are very predictable and very shifty, I don't really like any of them. . .John Edwards hasn't been loud enough to me--I don't really hear as much about him as perhaps he should project. . .but when it's down to the two--I'll likely be on the blue side again, some of the GOP candidates in this one scare me.

Welcome back! Marvelous work, pointing out yet again that the best people for public office are the ones that refuse to run.

Agrimorphee: Thanks!!!! .. "nick of time" -- is there a parody emergency? :-) John Jenkins: Undoubtedly. Jason, Ann Hammond, John Barry, Below Average Dave, alvin, AFW (ok, thanks), Rex: Thanks, all. Been doing some professional parody/comedy writing for a radio syndicate, plus, of course, running Turtle Development, Inc. (Nasdaq: TURD). Also, working on my magnum opus (parody about a .44 cal. revolver lol), which should be here sometime this year. Hint: OS is eight minutes long and has about 120 previous parodies here. It's taking quite a bit of time, so will probably continue to be MIA a good bit, but I want to do it justice. -- TT.
