The Lyrics

Speculation, of course, but many hunting accidents do involve alcohol. "Stented": Cheney has a history of heart problems and has had stents implanted. Gibson: a dry martini with a pearl onion. "Shunnin' Larry" refers to Cheney's choice of Fox News for this professionally crafted confessional, rather than honed atonement via Larry King. I could go on forever with crazy-Cheney parodies, but I won't.
Gunnin' Harry, slugs in Harry--
Got no feathers and no aviary.
Dick was heard to mutter:
"I swear that I heard his wings flutter."

Gunnin' Harry, drunk, unwary;
Dump more vodka in that Bloody Mary!
Harry's vein's now vented
So he, like Dick, might become stented.

Dry, dry, dry the Gibsons sot Dick
Sipped in profusion.
Fly, fly, fly did his sidekick, thought Dick
In blitzed confusion.

Gunnin' Harry, shunnin' Larry,
Sobered up, Dick's now mumblin' Hail Marys
For this hunting brother,
Who'd not be shot,
It hurt a lot,
Who'd not be shot
If he'd his druthers.

555! Here's one I started but don't really want to finish since I think this topic has been more than adequately beaten into comic submission... (OS: 'Till There Was You): All the quail feel secure/when Dick Cheney aims his rifle/but the lawyers better watch out/when Cheney shoots...
