The Lyrics

Mr. Brown’s a craven carpetbagger.
Churls like him who harm are far from rare.
Bum is sad, from Mass. he was kicked out.
After he cleared out, up to a farther north clime.

In “Cosmo” he was a carpet shagger,
lounging on the rug and looking lame.
Then things changed: he eked victory out
but was a joke and wasted everybody’s time.

Was voted out
by a savvy crowd, then
started to pout
’cause no one had been wowed.

He’s trying to bring down Jeanne Shaheen, who (down Shaheen, who)
got to senate in 2009 (in ’09 crew).
She’ll take on a guy who ain’t too smart.
But everyone can see: it’s carpetbagging time.

Was voted out
by a large Mass crowd, then
started to pout
’cause no one had been wowed.

He’s trying to bring down Jeanne Shaheen, who (down Shaheen, who)
got to senate in 2009 (in ’09 crew).
She’ll take on a guy who plays a part:
Granite State resident: lived there a REAL short time.

Mr. Brown’s a craven carpetbagger (carpetbagger),
Mr. Brown, seat-cravin’ carpetbagger (carpetbagger),
Mr. Brown, non-maven carpetbagger (carpetbagger).
