Ruining America

Filed under: Parody — Tags: , , , — Wayne A. Schneider @ 12:03 AM

Well, you know how I feel about “President” George Bush (spits on ground). As usual, a song came on the radio on the drive home, a line for a parody came to me, and the result is below. (Don’t worry. I waited until I got home to finish it. The second half, that is. The first part was done by the time I pulled into my driveway. Sorry.) It’s to the tune of Supertramp’s “Breakfast in America”, written by Rick Davies and Roger Hodgson. I hope you enjoy it. (If nothing else, it gives you an excuse to dig up a great album and play it!)

As usual, thank you, Jane, for your always-appreciated help.

Ruining America (A Song Parody)
Original music and lyrics “Breakfast in America”
by Rick Davies and Roger Hodgson, 1979
Additional lyrics by Wayne A. Schneider, 2008

Take a look at my president
He’s the only one I got
Not much of a president
He’s doesn’t seem to get a lot
Such a Dumbo, like his father
Ruining America
Like the folks in California
I’m hoping impeachment comes true
But there’s not a lot I can do

Could we have charges by breakfast
Nancy dear, Nancy dear
We got to send him to Texas
He’s just another millionaire
Not a winner, just a sinner
Make him take a polygraph
He’s a loser, what a joker
He’s playing his jokes upon you
‘Cause he’s nothing better to do

Don’t you look at my president
He’s the only one I got
Not much of a president
He’s doesn’t seem to get a lot
Such a Dumbo, like his father
Ruining America
Like the folks in California
I’m hoping impeachment comes true
But there’s not a lot I can do

  1. A good adaptation. Only one quibble: Roger Hodgson wrote the whole of the song [Breakfast in America] in his late teens.

  2. Thank you, mancunian, for visiting my blog. I appreciate the correction. The information I had indicated both of them wrote the song (maybe one did the music years after the lyrics), so I wanted to properly credit them both. I may have even gotten that from the liner notes, but I am unsure. I will leave it this way for now, and if Roger Hodgson wants to write me to tell me to fix it, then I certainly will. 🙂
