The Lyrics

"Anything will fit a naked man" - Irish Proverb "Where there is dowry there is danger" - Irish Proverb "Dress a goat in silk and it's still a goat" - Celtic Proverb
Blues went to red, jolly jolly
Blues ditched to red
They used their heads, smartly smartly
Blues turn to reds

Whoa-oh -

Living in red, hilly hilly
With morals led
Logic it's said, fully fully
In lands of red

If your jolly jolly heart,
Feels ideally lilly way
You'll help make the place
A rally for red each day
It will be caring and kind
Kids will grow 'round decent places to play - in

Lavender red tally tally
Happened to red
Land we won't dread, silly silly
When blue's is dead

Looking ahead joyfully coolly
Love seeing red

(Meaning is red ....joyfully soundly)
Think you're so great at it all? Great, go ahead, prove it!

Way to go linda. You write a good parody like this one, then just have to leave a smart ass comment like that.

The "lavender" will never go "red," thweetheart... if ya know what I mean. Go on, practice it: "President Hillary Clinton." Silly, silly.

Michael Patcholek, ---------------- Okay, president Hillary Clinton is silly silly, how'd I do? ----------------- While it is true enough that Hillary supports the war and is against pulling our troops out right now, she is hardly a war monger and you know that, silly silly. ----------------------- As for Sheehan, I knew she had called Hillary a war monger, she even went to New York (I think) last month to declare that if Hillary does not change her position on the war, she and her little army of freaks will make sure she pays with her job. She is apparently feeling a superwoman complex. Either way, Sheehan is an idiot & if her son can see her now from above, I would bet he is struggling to "not" ditch heaven in order to go downward, collect a few fireballs and send them to her anti-American asre. ------------------------- I know you are still a moron, I read a comment a few moments ago from you that you left on a song parody today. It was certainly politically charged, but not as terrible as the norm. In fact, the comments you left here are extremely tame and almost good-natured… However, I have not visited the comment section from the other parody I wrote that came out today, if any song breaks you out of this suspicious calm of yours, maybe there is hope for you yet! The ability to see that our opinions are very different and have that lingering feeling inside that the ‘other one’ is lost mentally in those opinions and still remains civil and respectful will be a challenge for both of us " but maybe a good one. So, until I get there tonight, I'll actually give you the benefit of the “very strong” I have about your reaction to that one. I hope you were good, after all, I would have wasted all the space and my time almost kissing your arse here, and if you were nasty, I will be so pissed off at myself

carol - that remark really has nothing to do with the parody, but okay. Thanks for the comment and the rating... I really did not peg you for liking this song with the content involved, very surprising.

Linda, are you a member of Christian Exodus? Have your talking points from the White House come out regarding what to say on the criminals Rove and Libby? Does it bother you that now 2,000 innocent Americans have died in the unjust war in Iraq? You certainly don't know your politics if you think that Cindy Sheehan will do anything to harm Hillary Clinton. Jeannine (Who?) Piro is running against the great Senator from the great state of New York will drop out. Of course, you ultra right-wing fascists couldn't help Ms. Piro as her husband fathered a child with another woman (while he was married to Piro). You might want to focus on the criminals in your party - Rove, Libby, Delay, Bush, etc. - even god can't help you with the Republican Culture of Corruption. Enjoy today's kool-aid - grape is today's flavor.

Immoral -- Nah, not a Christian Exodus member -- I am paid to write this stuff. --- And if you kept up on real news, you would have certainly known that Cindy Sheehan threatened Hillary Clinton because of her stance on the war, right there in NY city! You should allow reality into your life and some real facts/news - your herders are desperate honey, they'll lead your little sheepish mind to any sort of distortions to win.... Weak minds embrace that sort of ilk.

Linda writes: "I am paid to write this stuff." Are you really? Seriously? By whom? For what reason? (This ought to be good)
