I love this song and Kj Ohnstad was kind enough to lend her wonderful voice to another batch of my silly lyrics. A parody of the John Prine and Iris Dement song "In Spite of Ourselves"

All he does is yell and he makes money
He thinks that chimps grow up to be monkeys
He wants Kevin to say its gonna be sunny
He might not be here this coming monday
His vision is shaky, his memory’s hazy
But we still love this show

He aint gonna go to your party or wedding
Has Carville to tell ya who you should be betting
He’s not too sharp when it comes to his phone
His kids just wanna put him in a home
His dome it glistens, but we still listen
Cause the littles all love the show

In spite of himself
He gets paid to yak on the radio
Against all odds,
He is on the TV too
He’s gonna read, your emails
Notes and faxes
And make sure that you wear white
When he is through

Always trying to expand that wheelhouse Brad, maybe Nigel will sneak it in on him. I was shocked that they played, and actually seemed to like the Lost Highway jingle, maybe this has a chance as well.
