The Lyrics

Guess who's back? Rod Blagojevich! The latest installment of his trial begins anew. Like Hugo Chavez, herpes, and reality shows, he just won't go away! ;D

Who will buy a seat in the Senate?
Who will join me in pay-for-play?
Broke no rule, but my how I bent it.
I did it the Chicago way.

I can't grasp this moral eruption.
Why am I here under the gun?
For politics here is corruption.
In Illinois - it's how it's done!

Why should I not enrich myself, guys?
It is what I came here to do.
What I did you might say was unwise,
But ladies on The View
Say "Blago, we love you!"
And so you can't give me the screw!

(Back to the bridge)

I know you people would prefer us,
That you believe us to the end.
But Barack said "Pick Roland Burris!",
Because he is Obama's friend.

I will never do any jail time.
I've a book and talk shows galore,
Making lots of cash from my big crime.
I'm now a big time Joe,
I'm always a good show,
Let's hear it for your friend Blago!

I really enjoy "Oliver," so it is a little surprising that this is the first AmiRight spoof of this original song. Very good spoof, OMR.
