The Lyrics

Congress left D.C. for 5 weeks on August 2; the president left on August 3 for golf, Camp David, his birthday party, and a Martha's Vineyard vacation. Nobody is left to investigate the "phony scandals," only a few of which I mention in my parody of TOS. No wonder U.S. citizens don't trust their federal government.
I don't know why my government's lies spew;
I don't know why, it's just true.
I don't know why Blues will me to subdue;
I don't comply. I just stew.

Blues never seem to want my opinion;
Too many times they've told me, "Listen, mere minion!"
I don't know why they'd shove you in a queue;
I don't know why they lust to.

I don't know why my government's size grew;
I don't know why -- it must do?
I don't know why debt's spilling over too,
Rising so high, might bust through. [1]

Blues never seem to once try downsizing;
Seems ev'ry time they're boldly defending rising.
I don't know why they love to hike my dues;
I don't blow. I strive for clues.

I don't know why my government pries too;
Why do drones spy like they do?
Why not go find who killed fleet Seal Team crew? [2]
I now know why wise trust few. [3]

Sleuth N.S.A.'s phone-data enhancing.
Free phony time crude I.R.S. spent line-dancing. [4]
I don't know why my govenment's nigh screwed;
I don't know why -- right-left feud?

[1] ... the debt ceiling.
[2] ... on a Chinook helicopter shot down on August 6, 2011. Ditto Benghazi.
[3] An unknown Afghan military tipster is suspected, retaliating for bin Laden's death.
[4] ... among many questionable activities.

So Congress is "out of the office" for a bit. The "phony" scandals won't be investigated for awhile, but at least (maybe) our money will be safe as long as they're gone.

The whole monstrosity rests on the fear of the IRS. Break that and all the corruption, scandal mongering, war making, drone killing machine collapses. That's why con-gress will never investigate or take effective action.
