Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

A duet with the last two lines of each verse (after the introduction) sung by Nancy Pelosi and the balance sung by an anonymous Democrat congressman
We liberals in the House seem to lose our way,
Glories of Tip O'Neill are of another day.
We feel terribly unreal
With rejections in elections,
But we'll move left to that woman from the bay.

We'll dump Gephardt for San Francisco's
Own Congresswoman Pelosi.
Nancy will open women's doors
And oppose Iraqi wars.
If terror threatens everywhere,
I don't care.

The left will start like Fidel Castro,
We'll castrate the economy
To be where taxes just increase
And businesses decease.
The IRS might need repair,
I don't care.

The left loves art, but not like Van Gogh,
We fund works of poop and pee.
We give needles to drug users,
Paroles to child abusers.
You might find hope in public prayer,
I don't care.

The left is smart, but we can't say no
To the gun control lobby.
To be where only thieves and gangs
Own all of the bang-bangs.
Lives might be saved by guns you bear,
I don't care.

That leftist tart from San Francisco
Capitol Hill calls Pelosi.
With support from the Senate, she'd
Spend half way to infinity.
Our plans might bankrupt Medicare,
I don't care.

Her votes are there in San Francisco,
But not in Washington, DC.
Our plans cannot pass into law, so
Thank Gore we're the minority.

The politics are a 1 (well, maybe a 1.5), but the imagination is a 4.75, and I have to give credit for that It's good to see conservatives with constructive, rather than destructive, imagination, especially now that William F. Buckley is 77. By the way, Pelosi's really from Baltimore. Her father and brother, both named Tommy D'Alessandro, were both Mayors: Dad 1947-59, brother 1967-71; note that until the Ravens won Super Bowl XXXV, no Baltimore team won an NFL Title without one of them as Mayor, and not until Nancy got to SF did the 49ers win one. Her husband Paul is a San Franciscan, so that's how she got out there. But Baltimore is a pretty lefty city, too, what with unions and minorities and strong ethnic groups, not to mention their baseball team also wears black and orange, so SF fits her well.

Wow, your very first song here, and what a start! ... Bet you never thought the tart would end up Sneaker of the House, eh? (Shrieker of the House?)
I think a lot of comments got lost in some glitch in the mid-2000s, but 555 here. (And what's with the Super Bowl stuff and all? Do *all* leftists ramble -- n/m, rhetorical question.)

TT and NorCalcougaress - thank you for taking the time to comment on this 8-year old parody. Yes, Ms. Pelosi has gone on to bigger (but not better) things since this parody was written.
