The Lyrics

From the perspective of Seamus, the Irish setter that Mitt Romney put in a rooftop container on his car for a trip to Canada in 1983. YouTube of TOS.
Wish I could tell you
One thing that I want to do
Get down, get down, get down
You're a cruel man, Romney
The way you take me 'round

It would be so neat
If I could use a seat
Let me down, get down, get down
To keep me on this roof
Is surely out of bounds

Humans just like mine, they don't drink beer or wine*
They're as healthy as can be, healthy as can be
But why'd they put me up on this cold car roof?
Mittens, what do you think you're doin' to me?

Driving to the north
And I can't take this no more
Let me down, get down, get down
You're a strange man, Romney
The way you take me 'round around
You belong in a pound
Hey hey hey

I don't understand
But I'd like it, if I can to
Get down, get down, get down
You're a cruel man, Romney
The way you take me 'round

Humans just like mine, they don't drink beer or wine*
They're as healthy as can be, healthy as can be
But why'd they put me up on this cold car roof?
Mittens, what do you think you're doin' to me?

Driving to the north
And I can't take this no more
Let me down, get down, get down
You're a strange man, Romney
The way you take me 'round around
You belong in a pound

Bad Romney, bad Mitt Romney [repeat]
*Refers to the Mormon prohibition against alcoholic beverages.
