-Evan Greer


My name is John Kerry I’m a Vietnam vet.
I’m here to tell you how much better things could get.
If you’d just let me be the king instead of that guy Bush.
I’m a softer kind of fascist when shove comes to push.
And you know you gotta love my presidential style
My presidential face and my presidential smile.

So vote for me, I’m John Kerry
See the softer side of Tyranny
Yes vote for me, John Kerry.
Get rid of tweedle-dum, bring in tweedle-dee.

You can ask my wife and kids I’m the king of waffles
I’ll be the best waffler in the whole oval office.
I waffled on gay marriage and I waffled on Iraq,
I’ll waffle on CAFTA and the Patriot Act.
I’m a real clever guy and my strategy is strong,
If I never take a side how can I go wrong?

Well Bush is a Republican and I’m a Democrat.
Our policies are much the same but who cares about that?
The most important thing is the illusion of change.
So you can feel like your involved while the status quo’s maintained.
For you the working class things will probably stay the same
But won’t it be nice to have a new guy to blame?

Believe me though, you’re more to me than just a statistic
I know you want democracy, but come on, let’s be realistic.

Don’t blame me, my hands are tied.
I’ve gotta keep my corporate customers satisfied
And in order to do that we’ve gotta keep you all in line.
Waving the flag and the dollar sign.
You’ve got a television to supply you with your thrills,
So take some propaganda and a few sleeping pills.
If you ever wake up we know what must be done
But for now the ballot box is
Cheaper than the guns.
