The Lyrics

At the risk of sounding like Andy Rooney (or Jerry Seinfeld)... Did you ever notice how Presidents always go on vacation in August? And stuff ends up happening, and they gotta go back to work? Ain't that a kick?
(guitar intro)

(George Bush the father, August 1990)
Well, I'm a-gonna raise a fuss, I'm a-gonna raise a holler
about waiting for the summer just to loosen my collar.
Everytime I try to head out to Kennebunkport
Jim Baker says, "Saddam invaded Kuwait City, sport!"

Sometimes I wonder what I'm a-gonna do
'cause there ain't no avoiding the summertime dues!

(Bill Clinton, August 1998)
Well, my wife, I told her I was fooling with that White House intern.
And she won't give me the time of day, she thinks I'm gonna sin-burn.
But I hadda leave the Vineyard, some news made me sick:
Gotta bomb Osama's camp, for his embassy trick!

Hillary wonders what I'm a-gonna do
but a President's gotta pay his summertime dues.

(George W. Bush, August 2005)
I'm gonna take six weeks, gonna have a fine vacation.
But they tell me that New Orleans faces flood inundation.
Well, I called the Congressmen, and I said, quote:
"Forget New Orleans, boys, I need your tax-cutting vote!"

Sometimes, I wonder what I'm a-gonna do
'cause I'm Dubya Bush, I don't gotta pay dues!

(guitar fadeout)

I evaluated this parody using the overamplified Blue Cheer version - and it was great
