The Lyrics

Good sense in absence, criminal swine,
Dreck ring of worst things that you can find.
Engaged in vices of every kind. . .
Incensed at government, the choler unwinds.

Who cares which knave we choose?
Unless we’ve billions, deaf to our views.

Incensed at government, meaningless clowns.
Turn off, tune out. . .turds are always around,
Out for themselves, out for themselves,
Oh yeah.
Out for themselves, out for the pelf,
Yeah, yeah,
Yeah yeah.

You and I won’t get cocks s**ked; too few
Bucks to buy gal or guy. . .tell them what to do.
“Eat sh*t!” to politics; slut-slothful slew,
Retards thick as thieves, this clique, scum-purloin crew.

Who cares which dame we choose?
Horseshit they give to me and to you.

Good sense in absence, clique thick with swine,
Dreck ring of worst things pilfers your dimes.
Engaged in vices of every kind.
Incensed at government. . .the choler redlines.

Who cares which knave we choose?
A dorsal shiv for me and for you.

Incensed at government,
Incensed at gutless chimps.

[fade on sound of screeching simians flinging feces]

Wonderfully venomous language. Really liked "dorsal shiv" and "slut-slothful slime". My English teacher in high school would have called that "alliteration", then told us not to listen to stuff like that. The best summation of politics I've seen here in a long time. I wish the Congress could be locked in a room with speakers so your parody could be broadcast to them. I wish they could just be locked in a room, with guards to keep them from getting out.

I LOVE THIS! This is excellent, but we need to stay away from the Glenn Beck types who only want to occupy Washington square and shill a stupid book. The excellent choice language you use is superb. Have you ever heard "Pigs (3 Different Ones)" by Pink Floyd? It sums it up nicely - "ha ha, charade you are". But your parody ROX!
