Read JB went the extra mile and wrote the lyrics to "Captain Amnesty" that I've been looking for. Here's the original lyrics for the sake of comparison. And here at the new ones (spelling "oi" as "oy" is deliberate):

CAPTAIN AMNESTY
Artist: Anti-John
Album: A New Kind of Party?



A!



M!



N!



E!



S!



T!



Y!



He says that in the GOP, he's spent his fucking life

but his stance on immigration’s causing intra-party strife

he doesn’t want to build a wall so wetbacks can’t come here

and badmouths his own party just to make the left wing cheer



A-M-N-E-S-T-Y

His name is "Captain Amnesty" and Mexicans don’t mind

A-M-N-E-S-T-Y

McCain’s a closet liberal and he’ll be one till he dies

Oh, oh, oh



You ever seen a “right-winger” who had any prayer

Of getting liberal journalists to praise him on the air?

He says he learned his lesson when his bill went down the tubes

In reality he still thinks that we’re just a bunch of fuckin’ rubes



A-M-N-E-S-T-Y

His name is "Captain Amnesty" and Mexicans don’t mind

A-M-N-E-S-T-Y

He's amnesty incarnate--he’ll be that till he…



You know he just can't see

(Oy!*** Oy! Oy! Oy!)

He hurts the GOP!

(Oy! Oy! Oy! Oy!)

I don't wanna be

(Oy! Oy! Oy! Oy!)

Fighting, let's find a new nominee!

New nominee, new nominee, nominee



Let's go!

A-M-N-E-S-T-Y

His name is "Captain Amnesty" and Mexicans don’t mind

A-M-N-E-S-T-Y

McCain’s a closet liberal and he’ll be one till he dies

A-M-N-E-S-T-Y

Until he dies

A-M-N-E-S-T-Y

until he dies

A-M-N-E-S-T-Y

until he dies

A-M-N-E-S-T-Y

until he dies

Dies!



Now all we need is for someone to make an actual "Captian Amnesty" recording to be unleashed onto the internet as an MP3 hit.
