FORWARD

Live 18 Oct 2012 (Parma, OH) version


I kissed your sister then I kissed your mamma (Forward!)
Usually this time of day I'm in my pajamas (Forward!)
Well, let's vote for the man who got Osama (Forward!)
Forward, and away we go

I came to Ohio looking for a date (Forward!)
We kissed and I said it's a hell of a state (Forward!)
We made love, but it wasn't so great (Forward!)
Forward, and away we go

Smiling Joe, he really brought the drama (Forward!)
Tuesday, Romney was schooled by Obama (Forward!)
Forward, and away we go
