The Lyrics

This was a challenge, but as ususal, the GOP came through with enough shenanigans to give me the word play I needed.
Whole lotta' whites; not many blacks;
Perhaps they's from the "good side of the tracks."
Poll the people on the street
At the Republican Debates, Rick & Mitt - face to face hm, hm

"Uncle Tom" blacks; bigoted whites
That's the makeup of the Radical Right.
Defeat you every time you vent your Republican discontent.

Things not okay with Newt these days
His lobbying job, runnin' for office
He's on his third wife, runnin' for spite
And his campaign is dyin'

They all lost touch years ago
filled with hate - I did not know they could still be this dense after all this time.
Do you hear these clowns stumping down at the campaign scene?
Rick's Sweater vests, Mitt's flannel shirts and tight blue jeans
Oh they don't give a f*** about the oil spill in New Orleans
Hate queers.... and gay rights; got social issues in their sights... ooh, ooh

Uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh oh, oh oh oh....
Rick and Mitt Romney were the fodder of comedy for Letterman, Leno & Maher
Going around saying nothing when Rush Limbaugh took it too far
Romney was quite the whiner; had some cheezy grits at a southern diner
We never thought he could connect to that kind of life
Surely Willard & Ricky would always know how to connive.
Uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh, oh oh oh, oh...

Santorum and Romney, they're providing the comedy for Saturday Night Live
We figured the nomination won't come 'till the end of July
Most of us know they're all crazy
"Willard, your tax plan is much too hazy
and none of us could ever afford to live your kind of life".
Oh, but there they go cheerin' Santorum & Romney tonight.
Uh-oh, uh-oh, oh oh oh oh

Well they had a convention and the bone of contention
was the money from all the rich folks
The negative ads that they bought with the cash
That was donated in by the Kochs
then they started a fight with the Tea Party right
but they just didn't count on the jokes.
Oh-oh, oh oh, oh yeah-- late-night TV!

(sax solo)

Uh-oh, uh-oh, oh oh oh oh....
It went on for a while in the very same style
But we all know how it will end
They get reinforcements and some bigger endorsements
from all their political friends
Then the King of the Bain starts talking insane
And he comes in 3rd place again
Oh, oh oh

Ricky & Romney were spending some money by April of "two-thousand-twelve"
From the high to the low the Republican Party had all gone to hell
They couldn't get past all the drama
The best they could do was insult Obama
We always knew they would both find new ways they could lie
Oh and that's all I know of Santorum & Romney
Can't stop my laughing 'cause of all the comedy
And we hope to be wavin' old Willard & Ricky goodbye
Uh-oh, uh-oh, oh oh oh oh

Ignorant blacks, and Radical whites,
Are you a member of the far far right?
Defeat you every time you vent your Republican discontent.
