Don’t Give Up
(Sung to the tune of “Don’t Give Up” by Peter Gabriel)
Guest song parody by Sara Rose,

(As Sung by Al and Tipper Gore)

In this proud land I grew up strong
I was wanted all along
I was taught to fight, taught to win
I never thought I could fail

No hope left or so it seems
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
I lost my votes, lost the campaign
Seems no one wants you when you lose

Don't give up
'Cause you have friends
Don't give up
You're not beaten yet
Don't give up
I know you can make it back

Though I saw all of the signs
Always thought that I would be elected
Thought that we'd stay in D.C.
It is so strange the way things turn

Fought for my votes in the courts
In Florida, in Tallahassee
But the Supremes stopped all the counts
My dreams were burned down to the ground

Don't give up
You still have us
Don't give up
You won the majority
Don't give up
Our supproters are stil fighting
For our cause.

Take some time
And plan your campiagn
We still have ’04
When things seem rough
You can fall back on us
Don't give up
Please don't give up

Got to walk out of here
They don’t want me here now
Gonna shake Dubya’s hand
Keep my eyes on my dreams
Whatever he does
And whatever he says
This country’s mine
This country’s mine

Moved on to another plan
Turned off all the TVs
I know I still have many friends
But it’s so hard when you lose.

Don't give up
Yes, you have friends
Don't give up
You have so much suport
Don't give up
No reason to be ashamed
Don't give up
You still have us

Don't give up now
We're proud of who you are
Don't give up
I know we thought it’d be easy
Don't give up
'Cause you’ll be back in ‘04
And in ’04 you’ll win.
