GreatGoo Political Songs (2) Lyr Add: RUN FOR THE WHITEHOUSE 27 May 00

I saw the thread on Dubya and Lead Belly and of course, I had to post my Dubya tunes, which I did, under that thread. Then I got to thinking, there must be a plethora of such songs in the Mudcats and if there was ever a year for such things this is it. I will lead off with one of mine, who will follow suit?

Sing to, "Run for the Roses"

It starts in the midwest
At the Iowa caucus
First of the straw poles
The nobody's in
Then to the north east
The vote in New Hampshire
They say if you take it
You'll surely win

It's the run for the whitehouse
The prize of the poli's
The place of the PACmen
All swimming in cash
In the land of spin doctors
There's no greater challenge
Than to put some contestant in there
It's the run for the whitehouse, I'm scared

Down to the south
Is the land of the donkeys
Though Gee Dubya Pacaderm
Hails from down there
The pickin's are slim
But the numbers keep mounting
No quarter is shown
If you want to win


They made Super Tuesday
For a media frenzy
It wears out our will
To think and to vote
Quite soon in the process
Primaries are pointless
The parties now know
Who it is they'll promote


The voice of the people
Comes late in November
But nobody listens
Past nine Eastern time
Tis the voters that live
In Electoral College
That give us the president
They have in mind
