The Lyrics

I bid you farewell
Election time was a blur
And you I did sell
Thank you for giving me power
I was a fox
At the ballot box
Thank God you don't know who I am
The press didn't find the dirt about me

Now I'm a congressional scumbag baby
Yeah I'm a congressional scumbag baby
Now with the cash I'm laden, baby, that's me. Ooh.

My hero is Dick
He played the world for fools
The vultures were quick, he almost obscured the truth
Fair use laws I block
Let's invade Iraq
Every night the lobbyists cram
Me full of food and they buy votes from me

cuz I'm a congressional scumbag baby
Yeah, I'm a congressional scumbag baby.
Legal for me to drive drunk up in D.C. Ooh.
Ooh yeah...scumbag
Yeah, I'm above the law when I sin
Ooh yeah...scumbag
Yeah, I love to spout off lies through my grin

Man, I'm bought and sold
And if I get caught then I'll just wait till parole
And get my money in Zurich then I'll have steak
And live by a lake
Where nobody knows who I am
And nobody gives a damn about me

The secret is education baby
Learn and then vote them out, no maybes
Don't let congressional scumbags walk over you
ooh yeah...scumbag.
Ooh, They want 1930's Berlin
ooh yeah...scumbag.
No, you don't have to swallow the spin, yeah
I would love to get this recorded if anyone has a band that is willing. I sing and have a business model in mind for marketing the music through Kazaa and over the web, if you are interested, please feel free to contact me at

Using the art of parody to promote a political agenda is nothing new. Unforutnately, neither is the political parody that is poorly developed with little care taken to preserve the structure and syllable pattern of the original music. This parody, in this sense, is an excellent representative of this plague which vacuums the humor from a light-hearted humorous activity. The content feels as if it were compressed into the song, and seems more motivated by a some sense of necessity as it pertains to spewing political nonsense wherever possible than any actual artistic inspiration. Bottom line: the person reading it does not have fun, does not laugh, and does not feel as if the burden of the day has just been alleviated. Most people do not find reading about politics to be "fun" (note I said MOST people... I'm aware there are a few McLaughlin Groupies out there that enjoy political banter), and thus the parody is an inherently poor choice of medium for conveying a political message. Unless, of course, it's funny... which this is not.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
