The Lyrics

The oil companies and their buddies in the GOP Congress are bleeding us dry with gas heading to $4+/per gal. Why blame Libya? We only import 1.5% from them. Anyone notice that the GOP refuses to allow the subsidies to be voted down? Why are we subsidizing a trillion dollar industry with OUR tax dollars? Of course, there are Republican readers who will bad-mouth me for saying all this, but they're probably all rich corporate shills anyways. Go ahead, pay $5/gal. Anything for the GOP, right?
(Ah, ah) No, we won't let the price come down
(Ah, ah) No, we won't let the price come down
(Ah, ah) No, we won't let the price come down
If the news gets a hold of it, we'll blame Scott Brown
Oh, if the news gets a hold of it we'll just blame Brown!

There's a crooked CEO and he bought some crooked soil
Made a crooked million when he drilled for crooked oil
Had some crooked lobbyists and a crooked money box
Bought some crooked shares of some crooked little stocks

(Ah, ah) No, we won't let the price come down
(Ah, ah) No, we won't let the price come down
(Ah, ah) No, we won't let the price come down
If the news gets a hold of it we'll blame Scott Brown.
Oh, if the news gets a hold of it we'll just blame Brown!

Well, this crooked CEO and his crooked little shills
Went to crooked Washington to pass some crooked bills.
Bought some crooked Senators with a crooked little stash;
Tried to fill their pockets with some ca-ca-ca-ca-cash....

(Ah, ah) No, we won't let the price come down
(Ah, ah) No, we won't let the price come down
(Ah, ah) No, we won't let the price come down
If the news gets a hold of it we'll blame Scott Brown.
Oh, if the news gets a hold of it we'll just blame Brown

Now this crooked CEO & his crooked little spouse
They all hang together with the Speaker of the House
Raised their crooked profits and they cut their crooked tax
Got on Beck and Limbaugh with their crooked little facts


(Ah, ah) No, we won't let the price come down
(Ah, ah) No, we won't let the price come down
(Ah, ah) No, we won't let the price come down
If the news gets a hold of it (the news gets a hold of it )
If the news gets a hold of it we might....leave....town

Jeff - I'm hardly a rich corporate shill (thrice wrong, but who's counting?). If I were, I wouldn't appreciate your work. The last $4 per gallon spike helped elect Obama in 2008...the price of gas was Bush's fault! I'll fault the Republicans in Congress for one part of the mess...continuing the destructive and counter-productive enormous subsidies for corn ethanol! Corn belongs on the dinner table...and in my parodies. ;D

Either Jeffs world view is that of an 8 year olds, or he has an IQ of 8. Maybe both. Political discourse sinks to a new low every time he posts.
