They thought that Jeffords was their bane,
But now they see that John McCain,
Who shrugs off efforts to restrain
His longtime love of speaking plain,
And likes to jerk George Bush’s chain
And demonstrate complete disdain
For rules Republicans maintain,
Could cause them even greater pain–
Could, thinking he’s the knight Gawain
(Or pilot of a fighter plane),
Just bolt, and run his own campaign
To be a sagebrush Charlemagne.
In him they don’t know what they’ve got.
One thing’s for sure: Trent Lott he’s not.
