Don't Vote Once, It's All Right

It ain't no use to scribble in your X, babe
It don't matter, anyhow
And there ain't no point in elect-oral sex, babe
If your silk purse comes from a sow
When the acting returning officer's sworn
And candidates speak the same old corn
You may rise at dusk as soon as dawn
Don't vote once, it's all right

I'm watching that long Election count, babe
What I buy, they don't sell
And Sod Off are two goodly words, pal
So I'll just add Go To Hell
I ain't claimin' that I lost my mind
I can hardly bother to be non-aligned
I feel just what you did, and that's resigned
So don't vote once, it's all right
