Kerry

Deep apologies to Joni Mitchell

by Richard Cairo

THE wind is in from Fallujah
Last week I couldn't sleep
Oh, you know it sure is hard to live here, Kerry
And it's really not my home
All my fatigues are filthy, I got dried blood on my feet
And I miss my all-white neighbors and my NASCAR sheets

Oh Kerry, get out the vote
And I'll put on some kevlar
Oh you're a left-leaning Daddy
But I like you fine

Come on down to Abu Ghraib prison and I will
Beat you a bottle of wine
And we'll laugh and toast to nothing
and smash our empty tincups down
Let's have a round for these freaks and these soldiers
A round for these friends of mine
But no rounds for the dumb red devil
Who keeps me in this tortured town

Come on Kerry, get out the vote
I'll put on some kevlar
Oh you're a boring bastard
But I like you

Maybe I'll go to Manhattan
Maybe I'll go to Nome
And score me high-grade ganjah
And bring some hookers to my room
But let's not talk about fantasies now
The night is an explodin' dome
And they're playin' that Shiite rock and roll
Beneath the Iraqi Moon

Come on Kerry, get out the vote
I'll put on some kevlar
We'll go to the Baghdad Cafe
Have fun tonight

The wind is in from Fallujah
Last week I couldn't eat
Oh you know it sure is hard to live here
So you really got my vote

Maybe it's been too long a time
Since I was driving my big SUV
Now they got me used to sand in my ass
And the fact that people want me dead

Oh Kerry, get out the vote
I'll put on my finest kevlar
We'll go to the Baghdad Cafe
Have fun tonight
I said, Oh, you're a boring SOB but I like you
Man, you're out of sight
