For those who don't already know, we've made an open call to songwriters in any genre to submit songs and/or music videos inspired by Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. (Send them to by October 23rd; while the lyrics must be original, the music doesn't have to be.) Here's what's come in so far:

From Jim Terr in New Mexico:


From Jon in Berkeley:

From Este Cantor:

To the Tune of Pallidan Have gun will travel reads the card of a girl Her right-to-life antics has the world in a whirl She shoots wolves from airplanes and she Field dresses moose She just had a baby so her clothing's real loose

Palen, Palen, where do you roam? Washington aint Wasilla it's far far from home…

She loves the bridge to nowhere but she then says no But after congress ditches it, no, not befo She pressures the firing of her sister's ex Her daughter don't use birth control But she sure has sex

Palen, Palen where do you roam? You seem so darn eager that your mouth starts to foam

What is the Bush Doctrine, what does a VP do? There's so much that she doesn't know She don't have a clue But she's so cute and sparkely and she speaks so clear And just like her old champion She always says "nucular"

Palen, Palen, Where do you roam? Let's drill the ANWAR pristine land There's more where that came from

A heart-beat from the presidency is where she'll be She don't need no experience she's worry-free She sees Russia from her backyard So she's aware Of all the issues she will need and we'll be Real scared

Palen, Palen, Where do you roam? From David Comden:

She's not a girl who misses much Do do do do do do- oh yeah She's well acquainted with the touch of the velvet hand Like a lizard on a window pane

The man in the crowd with the multicoloured mirrors On his hobnail boots Lying with his eyes while his hands are busy Working overtime A soap impression of his wife which he ate And donated to the National Trust

I need a fix 'cause I'm going down Down to the bits that I left uptown I need a fix cause I'm going down Mother Superior jump the gun Mother Superior jump the gun Mother Superior jump the gun Mother Superior jump the gun Mother Superior jump the gun Mother Superior jump the gun

Happiness is a warm gun (Bang Bang Shoot Shoot) Happiness is a warm gun, momma (Bang Bang Shoot Shoot) When I hold you in my arms (Ooooooooohhh, oh yeah!) And when I feel my finger on your trigger I know nobody can do me no harm Because happiness is a warm gun, momma (Bang Bang Shoot Shoot) Happiness is a warm gun (Bang Bang Shoot Shoot) -Yes it is, it's a warm gun! (Bang Bang Shoot Shoot) Happiness is a warm, yes it is... GUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUN! (Bang Bang Shoot Shoot) Well don't ya know that happiness is a warm gun, momma?

(Bang Bang Shoot Shoot)
