New lyrics for “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down”


Herman Cain is my name, and the issues twirled in my brain,
When so many questions came and tore up my lame campaign.
In the autumn of 2011, I was in front of the other seven,
But Rick Perry couldn’t count to three;
I was hopin’ that I’d be the nominee…

(Chorus) The day I drove my campaign down,
And all my pizzas were burning;
The day I drove my campaign down,
And all the pollsters were turning,
They went, “New-ew-ew-ew-ew -ewt, New-ew-ew-ew-ew-ew-ew-ew-ewt”

Back with my wife in Georgia, and she said, “I got some news for ya,
Herman, stop your flirtin’, or you’re gonna get some hurtin’.”
Now I don’t mind she threatened me, as long as she backed me up on TV.
Just don’t ask again about Ghaddafi, ‘cuz it makes me look like a freakin’ dummy.
(Chorus)

Just like Bachmann before me, I tried to make a name.
And just like Perry before me, I went down in flames.
He was just a stupid, swagg’rin’ rube, and he made himself look like a boob.
I swear by the tax cuts for the rich, you can’t raise a campaign up when it’s in a ditch.
(Chorus)
