Smear Campaign Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

The dirty tricks department is working overtime
Trying to stop the candidate from getting this time
The wheels are now in motion all the traps are set
Under this commotion will he walk into this mess

The state's intoxicated they're at the starting gate
He may never make it to the planned TV debate
He can't fight off the big bucks of the old brigade
He's gotta watch his step in this smear campaign

They called a snap election in the summer heat
This town is reeling backwards like a drunk man on the streets
Feed those lies, bend those minds at any price
Foul or air as long as he's not there election time

Don't believe the papers it's not any body's race
He's not a rank beginner it's not a children's game
He may get the nomination if he breaks through the chain
Or they'll shoot him down on main street in this smear campaign

Just watch the party faithful fuel the dream machine
They've fudged up all the issues eat that scandal sheet
The dirty tricks department is nearly half insane
Trying to stop the candidate with a smear campaign
