Barbra Streisand: Kevin Mazur/

As you’ve probably read, after Barbra Streisand’s mocking duet with a George Bush impersonator drew tepid audience response — and one very persistent heckler — at her Madison Square Garden concert last night, the 64-year-old diva flew into an expletive-laced tirade. What you might not realize (since it hasn’t actually happened) is that Babs has commissioned new lyrics to her signature hit, ”People,” as a response to the imbroglio. As you’ve come to expect, PopWatch has the scoop. (And click here if you need a refresher on the melody.)

Please be quiet people
You’re the luckiest people in the world
And hecklers, there should be no hecklers
You’re supposed to be on my side
Not spouting partisan pride
Acting more like children than children
My fans
Are very polite people
And the quietest people in the world
I’m one lady
One very funny lady
You shelled out the big, big bucks
Now sit down, shut the f*** up
No more nasty outbursts
But first
Let me make a challenge, people
Vote for Democratic people
And we’ll hopefully change the world
