With limited apologies to the Dead Kennedys because Jello Biafra doesn't like Kerry either:


Kerry's Holiday in Cambodia
I’d been out of Yale for a year or two
and I knew I knew it all
I’ve had a plan to rule this land
since that day on JFK’s yacht
Problem was how to get past the mediocrity
that seemed to be my lot
One night on the USS Gridley I saw my shot–
I’d become the Vietnam hero I am not.

It was time to face what I most feared
Obscurity would have to be overcome there
Brace yourself my dear. Brace yourself my dear.

For the tale of my holiday in Cambodia
Christmas ‘68
My holiday in Cambodia
Courtesy of the man behind Watergate.

Now I’m a star belly sneetch I suck like a leech
Off of wife number one then two
Kiss butt while they bitch so I could get rich
as the second gets richer off of you
I was told “I’d work harder with a gun in my back
for a bowl or rice a day.
Slave for soldiers ‘til I starved
and my head skewered upon a stake.”
No, wait, that was John McCain
How can I make my four month service look not so vain?
What you need my son. What you need my son–

Is another dose of my holiday in Cambodia
Christmas ‘68
My holiday in Cambodia
Runnin’ with the CIA

My holiday in Cambodia
What? I was never there?
My holiday in Cambodia
What? Johnson was President then?

Well, I recall being shot at by Pol
Pot
Pol
Pot
(What? He wasn’t on the scene until ‘70? I’ll just shout it louder)
POL!
POT!
POL!
POT!
(And the Christian faction of the ARVN too.)
POL!
POT!
POL! POT!
(Did you know I am to the left of him too? Hanoi Jane does.)

Uh . . . . . yeah.

Sorry, that's off topic. Remember, please, signal-to-noise.
