"Weird Al" Wednesday - September 3rd

A few weeks ago I created a song parody for the Democratic nominee Barack Obama. So in the tradition of the 'equal time rule' for reporting political views, I have a little something for you about the Republican nominee John McCain. I asked Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam to sing this revised version of his eccentric song Yellow Ledbetter....

(guitar intro)

War vet
From Arrriiiizona!
The country said I wanna that Sen-a-tor
Once I saw him, he's as oooold as dirt
Then again, he may be our next president... yeah
Oh this Republican is gonna wish all your problems away yeah...
And he trained with the Naval Academy and knows what it is to be an America
And he went to Alaska
And found Sarah Palin to run by his side.
Their gonna fix the economy
you're gonna have more money to box or to bag
Ah yeah ehhhhhhhh...
Will you vote for John?
To the White House
Is it his time to saaaaaave?
I see Dems, frown about his policiiiieeesss yeah
And I know and I know I just want John McCaaaaaiiiinnnn

He's the guy (guitar solo)

Ooooh I see
McCain and Palin to show there's something else
Their gonna fix the economy
you're gonna have more money to box or to bag
Ah yeah ehh....
Will you vote for John?
To the White House
Is it his time to save?
I see Dems, frown about his policiiiieeesss yeah
And I know and I know I just want John McCaaaaaiiiinnnn
I just want John McCaaaaaiiiinnnn
I just want John McCaaaaaiiiinnnn
John
John wanna
Oh... yeah... oooh...

(guitar outro)

Don't you love the irony that a staunch Democrat like Eddie Vedder would sing a song about a staunch Republican like John McCain? Thank you for stopping by Eddie.

Any other songs about John McCain folks?
Happy Wednesday.

I don't know any Pearl Jam songs so I don't know just how good this is,I'm sure it is pretty good. Here is Johnny Macs least favorite verse of The Hokey Pokey:

You put your left arm up,
Your left arm down,
Your left arm up,
And raise it to the sky.
You do the hokey pokey
And turn yourself around.
Now put your right arm up,
Your right arm down,
Right arm up
And raise it to the sky.
And then you do the Hokey Pokey
Turn yourself around,
That's what it's all about.

Old McCain had a camp(aign).

And on this camp he had this chick.
E I E I O.
Sarah Palin here.
Sarah Palin there.
Here a Palin.
There a Palin.
Everywhere a Palin Palin.
Old McCain had a camp(aign).
E I E I O.

looks like we are all brain dead today. I will try to work on something after lunch. Though Pearl Jam was pretty freaking good.
