Johnny (McCain) and Teddy (Kennedy) Song
A funny song was recently posted on radio talk show host Terry Anderson's website. To listen to it you can either go to his homepage and scroll to the link titled: "Listen Up! Great New Tune!, McCain's Got to Go!" or you can download the MP3 directly.
I'm not sure who did the song but it's obviously a professional production. Terry Anderson played most of the song about 40 minutes into his March 21 show [archived here].
The tune is a knock off of the classic Frankie and Johnnie song but with a very different kind of message. The song equates the liberal policies of McCain and Kennedy and uses that as a justification to tell McCain that it's time for him to retire from the Senate. It's a RINO go home message.
The lyrics and some links that may have inspired each verse:
Flush the toilet Johnny and Teddy
Johnny and Teddy were Senators
On opposite sides of the aisle
They got together and drafted a bill
Guaranteed to make illegals smile
Amnesty was their game â€“ and they had no shame
Johnny and Senator Feingold
Gave campaign finance a try
But then the highest court in the land
Said the 1st amendment must apply
Gotta play by the rules â€“ now Johnny looks like a fool
Johnny and Mr. Obama
They both agree Gitmo should close
But bringing terrorists into the USA
Is a plan that we oppose
No, they donâ€™t belong â€“ and Johnnyâ€™s got it all wrong
Now Johnny and Senator Lieberman
Got together on cap and trade
Anemic hands across the aisle
Gonna send the country to its grave
Itâ€™s time to let him know â€“ old Johnnyâ€™s gotta go
Johnny believes Global Warming
Limousine Liberals and all
Congressional junkets to Copenhagen
Everybodyâ€™s havinâ€™ a ball
Just ask Al Gore - Johnny knows the score
S & L Man Charlie Keating
He came to Johnny one day
Said "the government boys are sniffing around
How much to make 'em go away?â€ť
Did Johnny take a bribe to join the Keating 5?
Now fast-forward 20 years later
Banks are in trouble again
Johnny says, â€śLetâ€™s bail â€?em out
Itâ€™s just a trillion â€“ or maybe ten.
Letâ€™s put some wind in their sails â€“ â€?cause theyâ€™re too big to fail.â€ť
We know there's oil in Alaska
Drilling won't cause any harm
But Johnny agrees with the tree-hugging geeks
Gas is gonna cost a leg and an arm
Johnny why canâ€™t you see whatâ€™s good for you and me?
Now everyone knows about ACORN
They get lots of taxpayersâ€™ dough
Prostitution rings and voter fraud
And home loans to any old schmoe
No matter ACORNâ€™s crimes â€“ Johnny thinks theyâ€™re just fine
We're tired of hearin' your flip-flops
We're tired of hearin' your lies
You may think we're all dummies but you can't
Pull the wool over our eyes
You're career's hit a snag - so start packin' your bags
â€?Cause Johnny, youâ€™ve worn out your welco
Itâ€™s time to bid DC goodbye
Go write a book or learn to cook
And eat a little humble pie
Just ask Sheriff Joe â€“ he says you gotta go
Yeah, go Johnny, go â€“ itâ€™s time to hit the road.
