The Lyrics

They're at it again! Republicans holding the middle class hostage so they can get more for the rich. If you support these clowns, you must be one rich MoFo.......otherwise, you're just delusional!
F*** it up, f*** it up
Boehner gonna shut it down

It happened on the Hill; the Republicans lied
Cantor & Boehner standin' side by side
Yeah, they put their ultimatum out at 4:15
Cuttin' off the EPA, and that's real mean!

F*** it up, f*** it up
Boehner gonna shut it down


Crunching the numbers; yeah, the budget's late
The Senate and the House engaged in hot debate
The deal ain't right, Fox News is startin' the spin
And the damned Tea Party's really diggin' in

Tryin' to be cool now, "power grab" here we go

"Superstar Cantor" gettin' ready to blow
The Republican corruption's really startin' to show
We need some action...no one's wanting to budge
Cutting billions from the budget, but it seems too much

(Sax Solo)

The bill is on the floor; Boehner needs a drink
And now at 10:15, things are startin' to stink
They want to pass the budget but it's not no good
'Cause they insisted on defunding Planned Parenthood


Pissed em' off, pissed 'em off, Boehner couldn't shut it down
Pissed em' off, pissed 'em off, Boehner couldn't shut it down
Pissed em' off, pissed 'em off, Boehner couldn't shut it down
Pissed em' off, pissed 'em off, Boehner couldn't shut it down

The only thing that has shut down is Jeff's brain cells.

So sorry, Mr. Blather.... I keep forgetting......we live in a post-Bush Nazi-like country where only Republicans are allowed to publish parodies and everyone else is wrong to do so.

Got no problem with parodies from both sides of the aisle, Jeffy. I just didn't realize this was a parody, as it looked more like 5 monkeys typing on 5 typewriters for 5 minutes.
