Parody Lyrics by Marcy Shaffer

Arranged by Greg Hilfman

OF A PLAN ARE YOU THOUGHT 
TO BE WHOLLY BEREFT?
DO YOU SKATE GREAT DIVIDES 
FROM BOTH SIDES OF YOUR MOUTH?
TO THE RIGHT DO YOU TROT 
WHEN YOU OUGHT TO GO LEFT?
WOULD YOU BOAST ON THE COAST 
THAT YOU'RE TOAST IN THE SOUTH? 
 
BECAUSE DEMOCRATS ARE AND DEMOCRATS DO.
DEMOCRATS DO AND DEMOCRATS WOULD.
DEMOCRATS WOULD AND DEMOCRATS CAN.
DEMOCRATS CAN AND DEMOCRATS DO. 
 
WHEN A SWIFT BOATER KICKS
DO YOU FALL TO YOUR KNEES?
CAN YOU PARSE LIKE A FARCE? 
CAN YOU BE ALPHA-MALED?
DO YOU YEARN TO HUG CHICKS? 
CAN YOU LEARN TO HUG TREES?
DO YOU KNOW HOW TO GROW 
WHAT YOU HAVEN'T INHALED? 
 
BECAUSE DEMOCRATS CAN AND DEMOCRATS DO.
DEMOCRATS DO AND DEMOCRATS CAN.
DEMOCRATS CAN AND DEMOCRATS DO.
DEMOCRATS DO AND DEMOCRATS CAN.
DEMOCRATS CAN AND DEMOCRATS DO. 
 
CAN YOU AIM TO BE CLEAR 
WHY THE WAR YOU SUPPORTED.
BUT SOUND LESS COHERENT 
THAN RUMSFELD OR RICE?
DO YOU CLAIM YOU'RE A WRECK 
THAT THE FACTS WERE DISTORTED?
WHEN YOU SIGN A BLANK CHECK
DO YOU WHINE AT THE PRICE? 
 
ARE YOU TOUGH AS A NOODLE? 
AND ENOUGH LIKE A POODLE
SO YOU MAKE TONY BLAIR LOOK A LION AT THAT.
WERE YOU QUICK TO EXUDE 
THAT YOU'RE SLICK AND YOU'RE SHREWD?
IF YOU ARE AND YOU WERE:
YOU'RE A DEMOCRAT. 
 
REQUIEM SONGS FOR DEMOCRATS. 
REQUIEM SONGS FOR DEMOCRATS. 
REQUIEM SONGS FOR DEMOCRATS. 
REQUIEM SONGS FOR DEMOCRATS. 
REQUIEM SONGS FOR DEMOCRATS. 
 
CAN YOU SHAKE HOW YOU'VE BEEN 
ONLY AFTER YOU'VE POLLED?
DO YOU TIE TO EXTREMES 
YOU SHOULD TRY TO CONTROL?
CAN YOU TAKE A SURE WIN 
AND GET TOTALLY ROLLED?
YOUR AMERICAN DREAMS. 
DO YOU BUY WITH YOUR SOUL? 
 
DEMOCRATS CAN AND DEMOCRATS DO.
DEMOCRATS CAN AND DEMOCRATS DO.
DEMOCRATS CAN AND DEMOCRATS DO. 
DEMOCRATS CAN AND DEMOCRATS DO. 
 
REQUIEM SONGS FOR DEMOCRATS. 
REQUIEM SONGS FOR DEMOCRATS. 
REQUIEM SONGS FOR DEMOCRATS. 
REQUIEM SONGS FOR DEMOCRATS. 
REQUIEM SONGS FOR DEMOCRATS!
