George's Take-Away 

[On GWB]

To "They Can't Take That Away From Me"

(Words and Music by George and Ira Gershwin)

Parody Lyrics by Marcy Shaffer

Arranged by Greg Hilfman

THE WAY I GOT AL GORED.
THE WAY I-RAQ GOT FREE.
MY YAKKIN' WITH THE LORD.
NO, NO, THEY CAN'T TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME! 
 
THE WAY I MIS-CLICHE. 
THE WAY I DISS D.C.
MY HARVARD M.B.A.
NO, NO, THEY CAN'T TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME! 
 
I WILL DRILL THE HILL WITH PIONEERS
IN THE TIME THAT I HAVE STILL.
TO THE END CONTEND THAT I'M NO FRIEND OF BILL. 
 
THE WAY I DUCKED DELAY.
MY "POOTY-POOT" ESPRIT.
THE WAY I GOT MY WAY.
NO, NO, THEY CAN'T TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME.
NO, THEY CAN'T TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME. 
 
[MUSICAL INTERLUDE] 
 
I HAVE RULED THE EARTH LIKE NONE, AND I'M
SURE BEFORE MY TIME HAS RUN:
WON'T GET FOOLED AGAIN, OR UNDONE LIKE 41. 
 
THE WAY I PLAY WITH FACT.
THE WAY I NAP AT THREE.
OLE, PATRIOT ACT!
OH NO, THEY CAN'T TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME!
NO, THEY CAN'T TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME! 
 
CAN THEY TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME?
