lyrics

I will promise you
Promise you, promise you
Promise you anything
Anything, anything
If you will vote for me
Vote for me, vote for me
I will promise anything
Anything, anything

You can hear what you want
What you want, what you want
What you want me to say
Me to say, me to say
I will say anything
Anything, anything
Anything I have to say
Have to say, have to say

I’m on your side
Not like that other guy
There’s no denying
If he’s breathing, he’s lying
So take my hand
I’ll lead you to the promised land

Cuz I will promise you
Promise you, promise you
Promise you anything
Anything, anything
If you will vote for me
Vote for me, vote for me
I will promise anything
Anything, anything

You can hear what you want
What you want, what you want
What you want me to say
Me to say, me to say
I will say anything
Anything, anything
Anything I have to say
Have to say, have to say

My opponent is a flatulent bed-wetting nose picker, a disgraceful turd unfit for human society, who steals presents from orphans on Christmas Eve, and dines on a bowl of puppy and kitten stew in front of starving homeless grandmothers while he hums a happy tune. Then there’s the really bad stuff. I approve this message.
