[Verse]
C                           G
  I turned on my TV, though it was hard to see
      F                    G
These men who’d be head of state
C                          G
What a great country, from sea to shining sea
   F         G             C
We watch the Republicans debate
                                    G
Newt stood with his third wife, and said you bet your life
    F              G
The president is a red
   C                                         G
He wants to tax the rich a lot and take your limo and your yacht
   F        G                 C     C7
He wants to have the bankers’ heads
       F                                C
And if he gets in again he’ll paint the White House pink and then
           G              C C7
He’ll hire Chavez as his VP
     F                               C
Then we’ll be right on track to give capitalism the sack
 G                              G7
Along with the insurance industry

[Chorus]
   F                     C                           G                Am
If only it were true, if only it were true I’d be so happy — wouldn’t you?
   F                     C                     G            C
If only it were true, if only it were true, if only it were true

[Verse]
                                    G
He’ll give everyone food stamps and wheelchair ramps
      F                             G
He’ll subsidize windmills and maple syrup
      C                           G
He’ll cripple industries with eco-friendly policies
    F              G                 C
And pretty soon we will be just like Europe
                                G
He’ll shut down oil wells and deliver solar cells
        F                        G
To each home in Delaware and Illinois
          C                                    G
He’ll ban logging in the parks, he’ll send the works of Karl Marx
       F               G                C   C7
To the homes of every American girl and boy
       F                           C
He’ll abolish pesticides, he’ll be giving out free rides
         G                                   C      C7
And free lunches, too, inside his high-speed trains
            F                     C
He’ll start lots of public works, full of union perks
      G                                   G7
He’ll fill all the cities up with bicycle lanes

[Chorus]
   F                     C                           G                Am
If only it were true, if only it were true I’d be so happy — wouldn’t you?
   F                     C                     G            C
If only it were true, if only it were true, if only it were true

[Verse]
                                  G
Watch out, his critics tell, this shall be our death knell
      F                                      G
He’ll pull the troops out and end all of our wars
          C                      G
He’ll gut military spending, our empire will be ending
    F               G            C
And soon we’ll be invaded by the Moors
                          G
He’ll legalize all drugs, give away beer mugs
    F                             G
And hookas to every child — and Korans
            C                                 G
He’ll ban religions from the schools, give 40 acres and a mule
         F                G            C     C7
To every person who makes less than 50 grand
           F                   C
He’ll shut down Guantanamo, to torture he’ll say no
              G                  C    C7
He’ll make us all drive electric cars
          F                                 C
He’ll reinstate the Fairness Doctrine, take off that damn flag pin
    G                               G7
And he’ll put Rupert Murdoch behind bars

[Chorus]
   F                     C                           G                Am
If only it were true, if only it were true I’d be so happy — wouldn’t you?
   F                     C                     G            C
If only it were true, if only it were true, if only it were true
