Sung to the tune of:

I hear the election a comin'
It's rollin' 'round the bend,
And the last one was a disaster,
In two thousand ten,

I'm stuck with polls a fallin,
And time keeps draggin' on,
And new candidates keep declarin',
On down to San Antone.

When I was just a baby,
My Mama told me, "Son,
Always be a good boy,
Don't ever trust Clintons,"
But I cut a deal in Denver,
Just seemed so sly,
Now when I hear that election comin',
I hang my head and cry.

I bet there's rich folks donatin',
In a fancy dining car,
They're probably drinkin' Campari,
And smokin' Cuban cigars,
But I know I had it comin',
I know I can't be free,
But those Clintons keep a-schemin',
And that's what tortures me.

Well, if they freed me from this election,
If that republic was finally mine,
I bet I'd move out over a little,
Farther left across the line,
Far from election season,
That's where I want to stay,
And I'd let that Chris Matthews,
Blow my Blues away.
