Parody Written by:

John A. Barry

The Lyrics

The title of this is almost identical to one of William Tong's http://www.amiright.com/parody/60s/creedenceclearwaterrevival0.shtml and the subject matter's similar. But the respective approaches are different.
Nearly every member of this reign's a clown.
Clowns whom history's borin'; profusion of nose-brown.
Good men—some are sages—point out he's a dunce.
And it blunders, still it blunders.
Who'll stop this reign?

Just north of Virginia, in the Beltway of bozos,
They're caught up in fables, and we watch their power grow.
No fans of the New Deal, conservative feign.
And it blunders, still it blunders.
Who'll stop this reign?

Goonish gospel singer, Halliburton whore,
Hawks with minds untethered, f*ckups by the score.
They get many warnin's, fallin' on deaf ears.
And it blunders, still it blunders.
Who'll stop this reign?
