The Lyrics

About Jon Cryer... a.k.a. John Boehner, the Leaker of the House.
(Na, na, na-na-na-na, late at night... )

(Na, na, na-na-na-na, late at night... )

I have counted every day
of obstruct, delay.
It seems like a thousand years.

And at
na, na, na-na-na-na, late at night
na, na, na-na-na-na, late at night
he'll stand
and fake the tears.

I have counted all his lies.
All his alibis.
I'm a guy who can't believe what he hears.

And at
na, na, na-na-na-na, late at night
na, na, na-na-na-na, late at night
he'll stand
and fake the tears.

He says he's lived the American Dream.
But his policies, they make us scream.

We'll be counting every day
'til he goes away.
It'll seem long, but just 2 years.

And in
2012, on the Election Night
2012, on the Election Night
he'll sit and cry real tears.
(Na, na, na-na-na-na, late at night... )
He'll sit and cry real tears.
(Na, na, na-na-na-na, late at night... )
He'll sit and cry real tears!
(Na, na, na-na-na-na, late at night... )
(repeat 'til fade)
Where have you gone, Edmund S. Muskie? A nation turns its crying eyes to you. Woo woo woo.

Michael - Together, we have the entire arsenal of a champion boxer: You - left jab; Barry Mitchell - right hook; Me - rope a dope (na, probably a right uppercut)! Cut me, Mickey! Cut me! BTW...I giggled shamelessly at your comparison to Two And A Half Men! Merry Christmas! ;D

How do you get BAY-ner out of Böhner? The appropriate pronunciation is "boner," as in "boner may refer to: "blunder," a spectacularly bad or embarrassing mistake."

Michael, Speaker Boehner deserves to be spoofed for his tears and this is fairly well done, but I am not impressed that you are able to count all of his lies. On the other hand, if you were able to count all of Speaker Pelosi's lies, now that would be an accomplishment!
