Mekong Delta Blues!

I'm proud to be the first to release the new John Kerry campaign theme song, "Mekong Delta Blues", written and performed by the Sons Of The Blogosphere, a local group in the Twin Cities. You can download the file at this link and have a listen for yourselves. The Sons have kindly provided the lyrics to this soon-to-be classic:

I hear that swiftboat comin',
it's comin' 'round the bend,
I ain't had my head above the railing
since I don't know when

I'm stuck in the Mekong Delta,
and time keeps draggin' on
But that Purple Heart collection
is gonna get me home

When I was first elected,
my daddy told me son,
You gotta raise their taxes,
and take away their guns

Life ain't easy in the Senate,
when you're from the ruling class
And never take a firm position,
it'll only bite you in the --

I had three words for my opponent -
bring it on now if you dare
The Swifties rode in on the 5-2-7,
loaded up for bear

I shoulda never gone to Paris,
I thought that they'd forgot
But I had said I'd done the war crimes too,
before I said that I did not

Some don't believe "i have a plan',
and I'm not who they're votin' for
They won't like that my whole cabinet
will consist of Michael Moore

I'll show 'em Who's Their Daddy,
if I get the chance
And if it's the last thing that I ever do,
I'll turn this country into France!

The file is in a reduced monaural format, as I only have so much bandwidth I can spare for John Kerry, but I think you wil still hear the excellent professionalism of the Sons of the Blogosphere in this MP3. Hopefully, however, they will not be playing at his Inaugural Ball ...
