and Joey 'the Cowpoka King'
as 'the Swing Votes.'

Curious George, Curious George,
says the way to peace is wagin' war.
Worse than the George that we had before...
He's the mixed-up monkey- that's Curious George.

He says a healthy forest ain't got no trees.
His favorite heavy metal is mercury.
The most mixed-up monkey that I ever did see...
That's why we call him curious George.

He must of read Robin Hood upside-down,
'Cause he's got the whole story done turned around.
Givin' to the rich and robbin' from the poor...
He ain't a son of a (be nice), he's just the son of a George.

Well it's monkey see and it's monkey do-
Now the whole damn country is a monkey zoo.
Where it's see no, hear no, speak no evil...
He's just preachin' fear from the White House steeple.

So I'm here to spread the message across the land-
That you can make a monkey out of any man.
A Baboon, Orangutan, or Chimpanzee...(but here's the kicker)
He's made the monkey out of you and me.

He's the mixed-up Orangutan- thinks he runs the whole shebang,
while the corporate guerrillas see how many more bananas
they can stuff into his drawers...
(I believe the correct term is 'coffers').
Yea, that's Curious George.

The best send up of 'W' I've heard!!!
If you like your political satire served on a musical platter, teeming with a heaping helping of essential vitamins and minerals (including 100% of the daily recommended allowance of Irony), then head on over to and check out Russ Chapman's ‘The Ballad of Curious George.’

To hear these guys channel the spirit of Roy Rogers, and lampoon our faux cowboy president is worth 99 cents: 99 times over.
