"It is my sincere hope that those of you who like the song and approve of my plan will assist me in spreading the word about 'President's Day' in order to inform and/or inflame any swing voters out there who remain at all ambivalent or apathetic about the current administration," he says in a statement.

Alanis Morissette has said she changed the lyrics on a new song in order to get radio airplay. New York singer-songwriter Jennifer Marks also has changed the lyrics to one of her new songs. But rather than radio considerations, Marks altered some lyrics to "Live" for Mattel considerations.

The song is on a DVD that the toy company is packaging with a new Barbie doll. But the lyrics about work, overdue rent and a cold shower didn't quite track for the Barbie set.

So Marks has altered the words to be more age-appropriate. The job-related gripes now deal with school and homework, and the shower is just a shower, with no temperature specifics. However, Barbie apparently needs a little buzz, because there still is a reference to breakfast including a "cold cup of coffee." Maybe it's decaf.
