The Lyrics

Part 2 of my "I hate Ohio/the electoral college" week (Check out 'Wrong: Ohio'). As sung by a New York voter (e.g. me) to a swing state voter from a state that shall go nameless.
You tell me you've got twenty College votes
And your state can swing
Don't represent me
You don't get me

You say you decide elections
And your state's the scene
Don't count more than me
No more than me

When you choose your faction
Marked off-red or blue
Look in my direction
I've been screwed; I've been screwed
When the country's broken
And your state's brought down
Will guilt be awoken?
WIll you drown? Will you drown?

You tell me that your the only one that counts
And your state can swing
But you can't swing me
You can't swing me!
