America’s #1 parody songwriting and performing team, The Bob Rivers Show, takes aim at the recent mishaps of Vice President Dick Cheney with their latest release. The gold record-holding Seattle morning radio show host (KZOK 102.5 FM) has produced “Dick Cheney’s Got a Gun,” a hilarious rendition of Aerosmith’s “Janie’s Got a Gun,” skewering the Vice President’s ineptitude. The new song and others from the Twisted Tunes catalog is available as a free downloadable mp3.

Fresh from the production of three parody songs for Super Bowl XL, The Bob Rivers Show ( has quickly turned their attention to the White House and the bungling in Texas.

“We don't make the news," show host Bob Rivers said. "We just take shots at it. If I were Vice President Cheney, I would have immediately called (SNL executive producer) Lorne Michaels and asked to do the sketch myself. This could be all pre-planned. I picture Cheney asking his good friend Harry Whittington to take one for the team, upstaging stories of prisoner abuse at Guantanamo Bay, domestic spying, and coke- smuggling Air Marshals.”

Cheney's Got a Gun

(A Parody of Aerosmith’s “Janie’s Got a Gun")

Produced by The Bob Rivers Show

Dick Cheney’s got a gun

Dick Cheney’s got a gun

The safety’s come undone

He’s squintin’ in the Texas sun

What did our leader do?

Who’d he put a bullet through?

They said when Cheney goes To Texas

You’ll find him huntin’ fish and game

His buddy had it comin’

Cuz when Cheney’s got a gun

He’s just not that good at takin’ aim

Cheney’s got a gun

Dick Cheney’s shot someone

Cindy Sheehan better run

Better watch her liberal buns

Tell him that the war’s not through

He’ll probably put a hole in you

He tracked a little bitty birdy

Hopin’ to blow out its brains

They say the spell that he gets under

From double barrel thunder

Makes his eyes pop out like he’s insane

Run away, run away from the Vice President

Run away, run away, run from Dick Che-ee-ay-ee-nee

Dick Cheney’s got a gun

Cindy Sheehan better run

He a weapon of mass destruction

Lead vocals by Spike O’Neill
