The Lyrics

The first collaboration between TJC & TT. Concept, title switch, and first draft were TJC's. We batted it back and forth, expanding and evolving it into the following. Unfortunately, when commercially produced, they dropped about half the lines for time/length reasons. Gotta get in 48 minutes of commercials every hour, ya know! Nonetheless, it had a good run on the airwaves until the Hillary/VP speculation came to a close. So here is the "writer's cut":

[Democratic Chorus sings]

Convention's close at hand, just wait! Barack’ll pick her, see…
She'll get the phone at 3am so he'll sleep peacefully
( -Leeeeee....)
She’s pimped-out all her pantsuits; Now they’re booty shorts, size 3
VeeeePeeee.... VeeeePeeee....
Shouldn’t it be Hillary?

[Hillary sings]

All I want is a throne somewhere
Wide enough for my derrière
Back in my White House lair
Oh, shouldn’t it be Hillary?

Lots of blokes want to be your Veep
Lame white males like that Edwards creep
I’d be your blond ‘black sheep’
So, shouldn’t it be Hillary?

Oh, Bro, I would be great as ‘second fiddle’
And true blue
Al - ways ready to take charge
If ever you caught the flu

Pick me now, and we’ll clinch this race
I won't backstab or bring disgrace
Or shoot you in the face
So, shouldn’t it be Hillary?

Hillary... Hillary...
Hillary... Hillary...

Pass my health plan and raise more tax,
Guard our homeland, but not Iraq's
I’d even tune your sax
So, shouldn’t it be Hillary?

Let's join forces in this campaign
I have voters that you could gain
And drain them from McCain
So, shouldn’t it be Hillary?

See... me... President of the Senate breaking --
-- ties with ease
Then, in 2012 again --
We'd win in an easy breeze

You and I could be super-stars
Saving whales, landing men on Mars
I’d throw in Bill’s cigars
If only you’d pick Hillary

Hillary, Hillary,
Hillary, Hillary...

I suggested that it be posted under TJC's nick, or at least in some new joint name ("T'nT Productions") since the idea and original draft was his, but he insisted that I take all the blame for it. Gee, thanks, pal :-) © 2008 TJC and Tommy Turtle. All rights reserved. E-mail:

alvin: thanks... unfortunately, the entire last verse was among the parts cut... maybe the "Bill's cigars" ref was too much for them... wish you were my producer lol.
John Barry, AFW, LittleVillainCakes, thanks.

Stuart McArthur: You're most welcome -- and again, the clever idea was entirely TJC's..... thanks Stu.

UnKnownVotress... umm, ya kinda lost me there - explain to the pea-brained reptile? But thanks for v/c anyway!

I'm not sure who would have provided more parody material as VP - Biden or Hillary - but as a parodist, it is probably best having Biden as VP and Hillary running the State Department. Very good stuff, particularly the "throne/derrière" verse.

John Jenkins: Thanks for reading this oldie, and I agree that both make for good parody material. ... and here I was afraid that with Dubya gone, there'd be no more good material:
Thanks again for taking the time to read, vote, and comment.
