Blighted By The Right
(Sung to the tune of "Blinded By The Light" by Manfred Mann)
Guest song parody by Melhi

(instrumental intro)

Blighted by the Right;
Distorting the truth,
Another rumor roars to life.
Lyin' from the Right;
Fed up with their goofs,
And with the dunder-headed Right.
Blighted by the Right;
Their king's just a tool,
Another puppet of the Right.

(brief instrumental)

Mad with power,
Cowards hungerin' to devour,
Put the teenaged force to task.
And the strong weren't so calm,
When they were bailin' out on 'Nam,
But they don't mention that.

Ever bolder, with our soldiers,
Speilin' a la Coulter,
They tripped when nothing was found.
When it's scary, the V.P. is
Seizin' and wheezin',
So, he has to be stashed underground.
(Oh, he has to be stashed underground...)

Our pride is blighted by the Right.
Distorting the truth,
Another rumor roars to life.
Lyin' from the Right,
Pepped up, on the juice;
Oh, the dissemblers on the Right.

Blighted by the Right,
The crown on the fool,
A puppet jester leads the Right.
Scion of the Right.
Fed up with their goofs,
And all the blunders of the Right.

(brief instrumental)

A simpleton sniffer
With his tongue in a twister
Tells us the left's on the take.
He says, "I'll show you the money."
But now it's gone
Played us all with his phony breaks.

Now Old Fart Wal-Mart
Is passing out the shopping carts
He's living on a bench outside.
And at the pearlies early
There's a little girly, surely.
They axed her from the budget, tonight.
(Axed her from the budget, tonight...)

And we were lied to by the Right,
Distorting the truth,
And cutting programs left 'n right.
Blighted by the Right.

Beat us down, but we wouldn't expire.
We can reclaim it from the Right...
We will reclaim it from the Right...

(long instrumental break)

Osama arranged the bombings.
Osama, that's who we wanted.
'Sama's still in hiding,
We should look until the ends of the earth.
Osama should feel our vengeance!

The "new tone" cable drones,
Numbers growing, stoneless clones,
Anchors on the lee.
Say "Old thrones were overblownm
And lefties own the microphones,"
Lulling the nation to sleep,

And the chew-bone we should own
Is dancing on our borders,
Walking a free man's path,
On our home grown tombstones
The message was, "He will atone."
November, we get our chance.

This calamity ran us aground
{*Starred chorus lines are repeated behind the subsequent verses)
Our freedoms,
Blighted by the Right,
Distorting the truth,
Our coffers plundered by the Right
Blighted by the Right,
Our vengeance refused,
We're torn asunder by the Right
*Blighted by the Right,
*Supporting the troops,
*By cutting funding is a smite,

Glad hand pumpin', stumpin',
Minions up to somethin',
Hidden daggers pat their backs.
Got his ops with their props,
Put their fam'lies on the block.
He didn't mention that.

Well, his sharp tongued, big gun,
Senators in Washington,
Stripped their benefits down.
And with nary a reason,
Squeezin' and sleezin',
Their hatcheting splattered the crown.

On spot, with the crack shots
Stationed in a tender spot,
Hold the future in their hands.
But, this hotshot, beseech-me-not,
Whose daddy's calling all the shots,
Had them cut off; some kinda thanks.

That simpleton sniffer
With his tongue in a twister
Snowed us; we've got what it takes.

We say "We'll throw you out, sonny!
We're millions strong."

(end backing chorus)

Beat us down, but we wouldn't expire.
We're gonna save it from the Right...
