The (Alaskan) Lumberjack Song

Something new for the Daft Lyrics Database: a newly written filk piece, to the tune of Monty Python’s Lumberjack Song:

(Presented with apologies to people named Jones, people named Tomlinson and some people named Palin.)

GOVERNOR:
I’m Republican, and I’m okay.
I hate to think ‘cos I’d rather pray.
McCAIN STAFFERS:
She’s Republican, and she’s okay.
She hates to think ‘cos she’d rather pray.
GOVERNOR:
I cut down tax. I fund pipelines.
I go on safari.
I shoot at wolves from choppers
And have buttered scones for tea.
McCAIN STAFFERS:
She cuts down tax.  She funds pipelines.
She goes on “safari”.
She shoots at wolves from choppers
And has buttered scones for tea.
CHORUS:
She’s Republican, and she’s okay.
She hates to think ‘cos she’d rather pray.
GOVERNOR:
I cut bridge cash, and climate change
I think is just hot air.
I put out for big oil,
And kill the polar bear.
McCAIN STAFFERS:
She cuts bridge cash, and climate change
She thinks is just hot air.
She puts out for big oil,
And kills the polar bear?!?!(McCain staffers leave stage)

GOVERNOR:, reluctantly joined by McCAIN STAFFERS in CHORUS:
She’s Republican, and she’s okay.
She hates to think ‘cos she’d rather pray.
GOVERNOR:
I cut down trees. I use my power,
To bully those I hate.
I wish I’d known the press,
Would call it Troopergate.
McCAIN STAFFERS:
She cuts down trees. She uses power,
To bully those she hates?!?!?!(McCain staffers leave stage, angrily blaming each other for failing to vet Governor…)

GOVERNOR: (on a now-empty stage):
I’m Republican, and I’m okay.
I hate to think ‘cos I’d rather pray.No, really I do…

  1. You missed Armageddon-wanting and Babygate.

    Still, with that much material to work with, you’re not going to have room for everything. 🙂

    (I’m going to have that tune stuck in my head ALL DAY NOW.)
