about

"Funny (or is it tragic?), how my topical songs of the moment seem to still work years after they were written. The only difference from the original version of this was changing vice-president Quayle to Dick and vice-lady Marilyn to first lady Laura. Here are those missing lyrics for y'all. The times they are not a'changing..." - Lach

If you’re feeling bad
Yeah, you’re feeling sad
Aw, you’re really down
You even got kicked out of town
Well, I got three words, they’re gonna cheer you up
I got three words, they’re gonna cheer you up
I got three words, they’re gonna cheer you up
Here come three words, they’re gonna cheer you up…

You can kiss my tush
You’re Former President Bush

Former Vice President Dick
You are such a dick
Former Vice President Dick

Former First Lady Laura
Former First Lady Laura
Well, some Democrats said, “Oh, she’s not so bad. She’s sort of the mother of our country. She went to AIDS hospitals and kissed AIDS babies.”
Well, it was all just a photo op anyway. Show me one kid who started to read because of you. I don’t think so. And even if you were cool you’re married to one the biggest fascist pigs of my lifetime who brought my country down to its knees but pretty soon…Former First Lady Laura

So, if you’re feeling bad
Yeah, you’re really sad
Everything’s gone wrong
Well, All you got to do is sing this song!
Former President Bush
Former President Bush
You can kiss my tush
Yeah, you’re former President Bush

I can’t hear you
In the balcony
In the red states
In the blue states
Join the party
The all night party!
Come on kiddies sing along
This is how patriot’s act
