Sympathy for Incumbents
(Sung to the tune of "Sympathy for the Devil" by the Rolling Stones)
Guest song parody by Mark Hoolihan

(instrumental intro)

Please allow me to introduce myself:
I'm a man of wealth, not brains.
I've been around nearly two years,
Won many a man's votes and faith.
And I was round when Supreme Court
Made sure the loser won the race.
Made damn sure that counting
Didn't matter in this case.

Chorus:
Pleased to meet you.
Hope you guessed my name.
'Cause distracting you
Is the nature of my game.

I talked "responsibility"
When Enron made you demand some change.
Cut funding for the SEC;
The Democracts screamed in vain.
I had surplus,
But asked for tax cuts.
Didn't do the math,
Now deficit's back.

Pleased to meet you.
Hope you guessed my name.
'Cause distracting you
Is the nature of my game.

I ignore pleas 'bout economy.
Ask about your stock, I say, "Bomb Iraq!"
I shouted out, "Who cause this corporate greed?"
When after all, it was folks like me.
Let me please introduce myself.
I'm a man of wealth, not brains.
And I laid traps for Democrats
Who don't hide behind the war I wage.

Pleased to meet you.
Hope you guessed my name.
'Cause distracting you
Is the nature of my game.

Just as CEO's are all criminals
And Saddam, he's sure no saint
As stock market fails, just call me president
Cause I'm in need of some restraint
So if you worry 'bout economy,
Vote for me, I'm on the case.
I'm sure to fix it all you see
Once I lay Iraq to waste

Pleased to meet you.
Hope you guessed my name.
'Cause distracting you
Is the nature of my game.

Tell me Ari, what's my name?
Seriously, I can't spell my name.
Tell me, Laura, what's my name?
If you don't vote, you're to blame.
