The Lyrics

Now that the election's settled, I decided to write a better version of Rocky Road than my previous one.
Well in the merry month of May, the debate had started
Election coming soon, one will be broken hearted
And wait for four more years, sit and cry for mother
Drink a pint of water, throat and lips to smother
They're off to speak some more
And rip where they were born
TV viewers bored with watching it they've had it
A brand new President to run the Government
Ballot has been sent from the rocky road to Capitol, 1, 2,3,4,5

Chorus:
Hunting Kerry
Tear him down the rocky road
And all the ways to Capitol
Whack for all de dah

In Washington that night, he rested lips so weary
Started by daylight next evening light and airy
Took a turn at the mic to keep his hopes from sinking
That's old Dubya's cure so he can stop for thinking
But Kerry's voters smile, laughing all the while
At his curious style, it set his temper snappin'
They ask him who'll stay hired and taxes he required
'Til he was almost tired of the rocky road to Capitol, 1, 2,3,4,5

Chorus

When Dubya next arrived he thought it such a pity
To be so soon deprived a chance at Presidency
Then we take a poll, all who vote for Dubya
Wonder what's in store especially those Republicans
Something crossed his mind, Kerry fell behind
When the votes were final, Kerry was unhappy
Inquiring of the votes, he said "That really blows
Debated 'til I choked on the rocky road to Capitol, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5"

Chorus

Now Kerry's in dismay, defeat was thin as paper
After the debates, "I'll do US a favor"
Dubya at him roared, more supporters had he
When they took the poll, too freaking bad for Kerry
John called Dubya a pig and Democratics big
At his election gig, he wants the draft to happen
He's so out of his head, we wished himself was dead
Or better far instead off the rocky road to Capitol, 1, 2,3,4,5

Chorus

Election of '04 can be safely ended
Both a pair of fools, we can no longer stand 'em
Blood began to boil, temper I was losing
Poor old USA, they'll begin abusing
"It's over with" says I, election that applies
Both the runners bite, It's all bureaucratical
With a loud hooray, they end the stupid affray
Not another day of the rocky road to Capitol, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Chorus
