American Pie, Parts 1 & 2
by Don McLean

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 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 about his motion denied
But something touched me deep inside
The day the vote was swiped

So...(Chorus)
We tried these Americans cried
Punch their ballots for Al Gore, but their vote was denied
Jeb's good ole boys throwin' away their franchise
Singin' this'll be the vote that we swipe
This'll be the vote that we swipe
 

Did Bush have the voters robbed?
And do he have faith that Jeb did his job
If his father tells him so?
Now do you believe that Bush is low?
Can Harris save his 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, the system he can't buck
Trying to fight through Jeb's courtroom muck
But we knew he was out of luck
The day the vote was swiped

I started singin'(Chorus)

Now, for four years we'll be on our own
Bush will heed the right agenda 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'(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
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'(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 parties 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 light the sacrificial rite
I saw Jeb Bush laughing with delight
The day the vote was swiped

He was singin'(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 Bush admires most-
His Father, Lott, and the Holy Ghost-
They made sure the country just was toast
The day the vote was swiped

And they were singing(Chorus, 2x)
