The Lyrics

On October 21'st, John Kerry was duck hunting in Springfield Township, Ohio..When asked by reporters, he said he bagged one, but someone else was carrying it, saying, he was too lazy...
"Carry Your Own Duck, John Kerry"

Carry Your Own Duck, John Kerry, You shot it down!
Who do you think you are?
You're not the President, yet...Still up for grabs
This time you've gone too far!

Dressed up all camaflagy....Twelve gauge shot-gun
Good image gone amuck?
'Twas you took the aim....'Twas you shot the game
John Kerry, Carry your own duck!

Carry Your Own Duck, John Kerry...What can it weigh?
This makes you look absurd
So grab that game sack, Baby...'Cause if you don't
The voters might give you the bird! (Oh, yeah!}
The voters might give you the bird!

Good to see a little light-hearted criticism of Kerry instead of the usual left-vs.-right parody wars. Pacing is off in a few places, though, so I give this 4-5-5.

LOL Alvin! You're right airfarcewon - only the president should not have to carry his own duck - 555

True...I did throw in an extra "Sillybull" in places...mainly because I wanted the term "Own duck", instead of just duck....Thanks for comments and votes, all

Love it. And when I sang it, I just leave out "John" and it has a nice sound...."Carry your own duck, Kerry" ....5's

Oh thank goodness. I was afraid the psychotic 2004 version of YWN may have commented here. "Well John Kerry is a TRAITOR! AIEEEEE!"

I don't think I have ever eaten duck before. Well, once I had a turducken (A turkey stuffed with a duck stuffed with a hen).
