Big John (Kerry)

Set to the tune "Big John" - the only version of which I know is sung by Johnny Cash.

Every mornin' on the Hill you could see him arrive,
Standing six-foot-four, weighing one-twenty-five,
Kinda' scrawny at the shoulders and lacking a spine
And when he spoke at all, it was mainly to whine.
(Big John, Big John) Big Bad John.

Nobody seems to know what's in John's soul -
His 'beliefs' are based on the latest poll.
Though he'll say what it takes to get your votes
It's the leftist agenda that he really promotes.
Big John.

Some say he came from Boston town,
Where he joined the Navy and gained renown
'Earning' three purple hearts and one bronze star
The home folks said, "This boy will go far".
(Big John, Big John) Big Bad John (Big John)

Then came a day back in '71
When he renounced all the medals that he had won,
Then turned against his country and his Navy friends
And sold them out for his own selfish ends.
(Big John)

He appeared before Congress and on left-wing talk shows,
Giving aid and comfort to America's foes.
It was clear to see whose side he was on;
Some say he helped cause the fall of Saigon.
Big John. (Big John, Big John) Big Bad John
(Big John).

He claims to be for the working poor,
Yet he owns 5 mansions from shore to shore.
He never had to work a day in his life
'Cause he learned it helps to have a wealthy wife!
Big John

Now he wants to be our next President
and Commander-in-chief of those he resents:
The American soldiers who fight and die
To give him the freedom to tell us his lies.
(Big John, Big John) Big Bad John (Big John)

Thousands have sacrificed their young lives
To help ensure that our nation survives.
A vote for Kerry is a slap in the face
To all the brave soldiers that he's disgraced.
(Big John, Big John) Big Bad John (Big John)
