They Used To Call Me Al



They used to tell me
I was a shoo-in
For the Presidential spot
Where there were crowds to wow
Or chads to tear
I was always there
Campaigning at every stop

They used to tell me
I was a shoo-in
With Presidential glory ahead
Why should I be standing in line
Just waiting for a Cafe Au Lait?

Once I built the Internet
Made it run
Made it race over a DSL line
Once I built the Internet
Now it's done
Brother can you spare a dime

Once I made a movie about the sun
Said global warming is a crime
Once I made a movie
Now it's a rerun
Brother can you spare a dime

Once in Big and Tall Men's Suits
I used to pompously strut
With Tipper hanging on my arm
Carbon footprints had to be cut
They were causing planetary harm
And I was the one with the plan
Say don't you remember?
They called me Al
It was Al all the time
Why don't you remember?
I'm your pal
Say buddy, can you spare a dime?

Oh don't you remember
They called me Al
It was Crazy Al the time
Why don't you remember?
I'm your Presidential pal
Buddy can you spare a dime?

So why are you so worried about Al Gore?

does this post look like worry or parody?

All Gore needs now is one of those Hobo sticks with a hanky tied to the end. And a boxcar to sing the blues...lol
