The Day The Vote Was Swiped
(Sung to the tune of "American Pie, Part 1 & 2" by Don McLean)
Guest song parody by skisics surus, skisics@yahoo.com

A long, long time ago,
I can still remember how
That voting used to make me smile.
And I knew if I had my chance,
That I could make a difference,
And maybe we'd be happy for a while.
But this November made me shiver,
With every rumor, Jeb delivered.
Bad news for the Gore camp,
He couldn't take one more step.
I can't remember if I cried,
When I read his motion was denied,
But something touched me deep inside,
The day the vote was swiped.

(Chorus:)
"We tried," these Americans cried,
"Punched our ballots for Al Gore,
But our vote was denied!"
Jeb's good ole boys have thrown away their franchise
Singin' : "This'll be the vote that we swipe,
This'll be the vote that we swipe."

Did Bush have the Gore voters robbed?
Does George have faith Jeb did his job,
If his father tells him so?
So, how low can the Bushes go?
Can Harris save her worthless soul?
Well, we know that she's a tool for him,
'Cause we saw her campaigning for him.
They both hide from the news.
They both just can't let their boy lose.
Gore is fighting a system he can't buck.
Trying to fight through Jeb's courtroom muck.
But we knew Gore was out of luck,
The day the vote was swiped

We started singin'... (repeat chorus)

Now, for four years, we'll be on our own
Bush will heed the Right agenda's tome
But, that's not how should have been.
When this joker ran, though he's just a lad
With handlers he borrowed from his dad
Bush just tried to fool you and me.
And while Gore was defending the truth,
Bush was stealing votes from the booth.
The courtroom was adjourned,
No verdict was returned.
And while Gore tried to give a spark,
The people protested in the park.
And we sang dirges in the dark,
The day the vote was swiped.

We were singin'... (repeat chorus)

Helter, skelter, the questions pelt her.
Harris blows them off and finds shelter.
Now exposed and falling fast.
Landed flat on her ass.
Then Harris tried for a courtroom pass.
With the joker on the sidelines, passing cash.
Now the courtroom said the counts resume,
While minions sang Bush's marching tune.
We all got up to dance,
Oh, but we never got the chance.
Though the manual count was a done deal,
Bush supporters refused to yield.
Do you recall what was revealed,
The day the vote was swiped?

We started singin'... (repeat chorus)

Oh, and the votes were all in one place,
The manual counting in a race,
With no time left to start again.
So, come on, Jeb be nimble, Jeb be quick,
Jeb Bush deliver his party's pick,
'Cause fraud is this Devil's only friend.
And as I watched him on the stage,
My hands were clenched in fists of rage.
No angel born in Hell,
Could break that Jeb Bush spell.
And as the flames climbed high into the night,
To illuminate the looney Right,
I saw Jeb Bush laughing with delight,
The day the vote was swiped.

He was singin...' (repeat chorus)

I met a girl who sang the blues,
And I asked her for some happy news.
But she just smiled and turned away,
I went down to the grocery store,
Where I'd heard they had food years before.
But the man there said that I couldn't stay,
And in the streets the children screamed.
The people cried, and Bush donors schemed.
But not a word was spoken
The promises all were broken
And the three men Dubya admires most:
His Father, Rush, and Grandfather's Ghost
They made sure the country was just toast
The day the vote was swiped

And they were singing... (repeat chorus twice)
