The Blackout Song
In honor of Blackout 2003 and our ornery electric grid... These lyrics were quoted in a USA Today article (Congratulations, Mad!)
(Sung to the tune of "Just The Way You Are" by Billy Joel)
Guest song parody by Mad Kane

(instrumental intro)

Don't go blaming
George Bush for blackouts.
Electric grids are such a bore.
mmm......... mmm........

Don't imagine
He's too familiar
With anything but waging war.

He says he'll fix it,
Track down the trouble,
He always thought the grid was poor.
mmm......... mmm........

He'll call on Congress
To solve the grid mess.
And when in doubt blame Clinton/Gore.

Won't go spending
Much cash to fix it.
That isn't what they tax us for.

But he will gladly
Throw stacks of money
At all his pals at energy corps.

Don't go spoiling.
George Dubya's golf game.
He needs to run and sleep and play.
mmm......... mmm........

Though Bush is pleased to
Forego his tees to
Raise megabucks for his campaign.

You need to know that Bush will always be
A Prez that blames the other guy.
What will it take till you believe that he
Will help the rich? Not you and I.

Don't let him fool you
And me forever.
We should have known it from the start.
mmm......... mmm........

The only power
That Dubya cares for
Keeps Bush and Cheney where they are.

You need to know that Bush will always be
A Prez that blames the other guy.
What will it take till you believe that he
Will help the rich? Not you and I.

Don't let him rule you
And me forever.
We should have known it from the start.
mmm......... mmm........

The only power
That Dubya cares for
Keeps Bush and Cheney where they are...

(instrumental fade)
