The Lyrics

I know Lena Horne did the best-known version of this song back in 1943, but the parody works better with the Spaniels' 1954 R&B follow-up to "Goodnight Sweetheart, Goodnight" (Duh-doh-doh-duh-DOH...) Inspired by Violet T. Riol's "Lightweight Miers"... Lightweight? Why stop there?
I don't know why
(I don't know why)
there's no good picks by this guy!
Weight of feather!
(Weight of feather!)
Bush just can't get his act together!
(Act together!)
Picks cronies all the time!
(All the time, all the time, all the ti-ime!)

Look who's there!
(Look who's there!)
His bonehead pals everywhere!
Weight of feather!
(Weight of feather!)
Bush just can't get his act together!
(Act together!)
Picks cronies all the time!
(All the time, all the time, all the ti-ime!)

Since he got appoint
he's appointed heads of lettuce.
Rove should be in the joint.
We all know he's out to get us.
He thinks Mike Brown had good points?
Do you think he'd like to bet us?
And now Miers on the Court?

Let her on?
(Let her on?)
Don't you know that would be wrong?
Weight of feather!
(Weight of feather!)
Bush just can't get his act together!
(Act together!)
Picks cronies all the time!
(All the time, all the time, all the ti-ime!)

(instrumental break)

Pals of Prez!
(Pals of Prez!)
John Snow, Albert Gonzales!
Weight of feather!
(Weight of feather!)
Bush just can't get his act together!
(Act together!)
Picks cronies all the time!
(All the time, all the time, all the ti-ime!)
Picks cronies all the time!
(All the time, all the time, all the ti-ime!)
Picks cronies all the time!
(All the time, all the time, all the ti-ime!)

Although I, too, am underwhelmed by this nomination, I think that most of the featherweights are Bush critics. But I still have to give this parody high marks, primarily for "lettuce/get us/bet us."
