The Lyrics

Congress may not get the message in Scott Brown's Massachusetts senatorial election upset. Here is a song to help our representatives remember what millions of citizens who freely assembled during 2009 were (and still are) saying. My parody of TOS has a less submissive attitude.

Congress, hear thy people's call,
'Sembled on the street or mall, [1]
Raucous halls professing gall. ]2]
We beseech thee, hear us!

Ye thy oaths have disobeyed,
Into paths corrupt have strayed,
Constitution have betrayed.
We beseech thee, hear us!

Come sing about governments that let us be,
Not bring about government bureaucracy.
Come sing and shout, "Government must set us free;
We will teach thee, fear us!"

Sick! E. R. will treat, not cure.
Guilty! We seek thy justice sure.
Evil! Be strong, so we're secure;
Freedom ain't free, hear us!

Blind! With YouTube, we may see.
Bound! We claim that we're made free.
Stained! We sprayed with DDT; [3]
E. P. A., please spare us!

Come sing about governments that let us be,
Not bring about government's insanity.
Come sing and shout, "Government must set us free;
We can reach thee, fear us!"

In the great assembly hall, [4]
Spoken thund'rously to all
Who have dared to jilt the small,
"We'll impeach thee, fear us!"

Of big government's largesse,
Pitying our sore distress,
Leading us to emptiness, [5]
We need breach free, clear us!

Grant us all from dearth to rise
And to strain with eager eyes
Towards the self-sufficient prize.
We beseech thee, steer us! [6]

Come sing about governments that let us be,
Not bring about government complexity.
Come sing and shout, "Ship of State, just set us free,
Or we'll beach thee, hear us!"

[1] Tea parties across the USA and on 9/12 at the National Mall in D. C.
[2] Town hall meetings with various legislators during the Summer of 2009.
[3] Worldwide ban of DDT led to malaria outbreaks in Africa, just one example of environmentality.
[4] Imagine a joint session of Congress for a State of the Union speech.
[5] Welfare programs lead to dependency and lack of motivation.
[6] Offer incentives for entrepreneurs, and also reduce regulations and red tape.
