The Lyrics

The SuperPACs are whoring—
as attacks they’re scoring
whether they’re for Obama or Mitty.
Everything they say is bunk,
either bullshit or pure junk.
Neither churl comes off as real witty.
Both camps’ banes and slime
with their nonsense waste our time;
thanks to the Supreme Court, they pay and pay.
From the S’ PAC gals and boys
we’re hearing nothing but noise—
they edit tapes and only parts play.

The quotes are taken out of context, every day,
taken out of context, every way,
taken out of context by the slime,
taken out of context, yet some folks waste their time
listening.

No more than an infantile pissin’
match. Why’s anyone one listen
to pols’ PAC pimps whose rigged ads bellow?
How far can they drop the bar?
So much lower than the tar
on the road as each side shills for its fellow.
By scum Super PACs are run
as they shovel by the ton
what Hercules tried clean away.
In the best case it annoys
if you listen to the noise
completely meaningless in the fray.

Near all is taken out of context, every day,
taken out of context, every way,
taken out of context by the slime,
taken out of context, yet some folks waste their time
tuned in.

Jerkoffs—
euw!!!!!!!!!!
All wrong.

[noise]

Take it all out of context:
change what they say, every way.

The SuperPACs are whoring—
got no ethics mooring
whether they’re for Obama or Mitty.
Everything they say is junk
yet some their Kool-Aid have drunk,
while each churl comes off a real shitty.
Both camps’ banes and slime
with their garbage waste our time.
Thanks to the Supreme Court, a big payday.
From the S’ PAC gals and boys,
nothing but semantic noise
“legerdevoix” makes things sound their way.

The quotes are taken out of context, every day,
taken out of context, every way,
taken out of context by the slime.
taken out of context, yet some folks waste their time
listening.

Waste of air from fixers. . .euw!
Wasted air from tricksters
Waste of air from grifters
Wasted air from slicksters
Waste of air from ick!sters (every day)
Wasted air from slick turds (every way)
Baleful air from grifters (waste of time)
Wasteful air from ick!sters
these jerkoff PACs are slime.

As I am not one of you I had to stop part way through my listen to find out what a PAC /Super PAC was! That done, I quite enjoyed my rare trip into a political parody, and was glad to find it down the middle. "nothing but semantic noise". What a surprise, just like where I live :)
