about

Although it was written in 2007, a year before McCain's presidential run, this song was featured on the Dr. Demento Show twice during the 2008 election season, initially just prior to voting day and once again during the week leading up to Obama's inauguration.

lyrics

I'd like to hop on a train
Down to Phoenix, to live with John McCain
He'd be nice to me, I'd hope
He could bake me breakfast, and buy me soap

John McCain, I'll be your friend
We'll saunter down the riverbend
We could ride bikes and have lots of fun
Playing in the noonday sun

Let's take a piece of that walnut pie
And stare into the bright blue summer sky
Injun Joe will chase us through the rain
Me and John McCain

John McCain just me and you
There's so much stuff that we could do
I could help you paint a fence
For a sun-dried peach and eleven cents

Let's take a piece of that walnut pie
And stare into the bright blue summer sky
Injun Joe will chase us through the rain
Me and John McCain

I'd like to hop on a train
Down to Phoenix to live with John McCain
We could skip stones with Becky Jones
And eat some homemade ice-cream cones

John McCain, just me and you
The sky is the limit and you know it's true
We could skip merrily down the lane
Me and John McCain
