The Lyrics

“There’s a sucker born every minute”—P.T. Barnum, attributed. “The virulence of the national appetite for bogus revelation.” “The public demands certainties, but there are no certainties.” “No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public” (misquote of “No one. . .has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people.”)—H.L. Mencken
You have got to be shitting me, haven’t you?!
This touchy-feely joke’s made from thin air.

Silly, dubious con known as “The Secret,”
Boosted by a dog from hell,
O-O-O-O. . .

Never whispers, always cheers
Her nonsense into your ears.
My, she’s tubby, too.

Griftin’ is the author of “The Secret”;
It’s a promise conners sell—

Gives us grifters we can cheer
As they play upon our fear. . .
Rhonda’s* conner crew.

There is no “secret,” as explained by two:
P.T. Barnum, Mencken too.

Missin’ a shred of proof is “The Secret”. . .
Offers promise you’ll do well,

Is the bullshit that you hear
From Byrne and her con-job peers—
They are shuckin’ you,
Play sucker of you. . . .

*Rhonda Byrne, author of “The Secret”
