We are the Vote Fraud Army.
Every one of us Cares.
We all hate poverty, war, and injustice,
And ACORN pays for our wares.
There are conservative voters ,yeah,
But we regard them with scorn.
Those right-wing baggers have no social conscience —
Why, they won’t even vote for Big Bird and porn.
If you feel dissatisfaction, vote your frustrations away.
Some people may prefer action,
But give me a false name any old day.
The scheme don’t have to be clever,
And it’s right to vote a few extra times.
We call it racist if they try to stop us,
And you don’t have to stand in line.
Remember the fight against Nixon.
That’s the kind where each of us belongs.
Though he may have won 8 years later.
We brought Camelot in.
So join in the Vote Fraud Army.
False names are the weapons we tote.
In the fight against poverty, war, and injustice,
Ready, aim, vote.
