The Lyrics


You'd think the second coming for how he has risen,
With his crafty ways he does resort.
Well I signed me an executive decision,
And chattered out that old smooth talk.
It is my mission I use tact on all the meanness,
Iran say "we'll not ever light the fuse".
Usin' mentally repressin' right on time lessons,
Workin' out the brain wash cues.

So who are you shittin' with "mein herr" conditioned offense and your "civil care",
Takin' out your trash are your Secretaries,
Playin' for Obama czars in power chairs.
In dread these smucks here snubbin' defenders of our flag,
And takin' tone with bloggie old views.
It's so steadily repressin', mowed down mind stressin'
Watchin' all the brain washed news.

I am a man of lie-ability,
I am all stokin', I'm a super star!
I'm almighty head of state, and yes on this there's no debate,
And I'm quite astute at runnin' these czars.

Well, all I must do is to break some bread,
No tight spot that I can't undo,
I'm workin' for new friends with bad guys in shawls
Usin' unrecovered union dues.
So maybe disrespect's unseemly,
Got my trouble czar meanie for any "why now" anxiety news,
And I'm so readily finessin' profound time tested,
Turnin' all the brain wash screws.

(Lead break)

I got them steadily impressin' propound mind wrestin',
Smirkin' at my brain wash ruse.

Funny, scary and consistent with your recent themes. well done, Guy -555. Now, I gotta go rinse my brain, since it's just been washed.

Like the "Turnin' all the brain wash screws" line. Is that how you end up being a screwball? 555

Another great rhy-ming Guy-sting! And, Iran's nukes may be the least of our worries... Islamic cultural imperative's have me most concerned; what, at this rate we've got maybe a decade before we Czar ourselves the way of France & Denmark with substantial, unstoppable, untouchable n' irreversible enclaves of Sharia law throughout the land co-existing, nay co-opting, the constitution and Bill of Rights? Sorry, I guess I'm in a 'worst-case-scenario' rather than 'New York' state of mind today... great stuff!

I still don't know much about this Czar I keep hearing about (though Lord knows I should by now), but this still gets a 555. I plan to parody this OS sometime.

Nice word usage and imagery. Hey, even France is mocking us these days for our naïveté. O-la-la! 555

Fantastic write... and perhaps unsettlingly true.

Great job here, and I agree with all comments except DJ Blaze's (I know about the czars). The way things are going, either this country will become either a socialist, highly restricted nation that nobody in their right mind would want to live in, or will break out into pure lawlessness and will destroy itself quickly. 5s.

Timmy1k - Just like the shampoo bottle instructions - Lather, rinse, repeat. Funny how brain washing works kind of the same way. I'm going to have to start getting nastier with my political parodies. I'm not getting any 1 votes and no one is jumping in my stuff about what I'm writing. Well, I've endured the left's bashing parodies since 2003. Now it's our turn. Don't think they like it much. =;-) Thanks Tim.

A♦ J♣ XXI - I think so - better ask Alvin - I called him a screwball in my 900TH parody done to Steely Dan's OS FM, called CM. He took it as a compliment as I meant it to be. Thanks for taking the time to reply to this parody.

TJC - I don't think that the people in the state that I live in would put up with much of that. Even the democratic politicians for the most part are basically conservative in this part of the country. It may be time for Texas to become the republic that it once was. Thanks for the sobering commentary - we all need to wake up as a nation or we won't be...

DJ - All you need to know about them is this - Too many czars spoil the coup. Too bad that word is pronounced "Coo" - it would so go well with the old adage. DJ - I look forward to you doing parody to this OS. It is challenging to be sure. This was not a fast write for me. I had to pull stuff out of the air to match the pace and make sense. But I really like all of Jim Croce's songs. He passed away way too early. He died in a plane crash at the age of 30. Just think how many good songs we will never have because he is gone. Thanks for taking time to read and comment on this parody.

Forsby - That is quite the compliment. I really worked at getting the word play to flow as it does. I could have used another day on this one I think. It's not an easy OS but the song is so easy listening. Thanks.

Fiddlegirl - I just can't sit back and watch the crap that is going on around me. I get my frustrations out by writing sarcastic satire. I will continue to write about the wrongs until they get right or they take away the 1st amendment and toss me in the gulag. I will not go quietly into the night. Thanks for the support.

Andria – Please don’t be so hard on DJ – the lad is only 15 years old. He’s really a good kid and I think he’s very mature for his age. I wholeheartedly agree with what you are saying as you can attest to in the above reply comments I wrote. We the people better wake up and darn fast. I’m so ready for the 2010 elections. I so hope that we get a whole lot of independents in congress and we get rid of those who are up for re-election who have been in office for more than 10 years. I’d love to see a three party system working on our laws – both parties have losers who are selling us out. I believe that our founding fathers envisioned serving in Congress in much the same way as we view jury duty except for a bit longer. I think they viewed Congressional service as a civic duty that a common everyday person would do for two to six years and then go back to civilian life and let the next person take their place. It is ridiculous to see people in office for 40 plus years. But it’s a catch 22. Only Congress can limit their own terms and who cuts off their own gravy train? Longevity equals corruptibility. Thanks for reading and responding.

That is a hard hitting parody and seems that everyone has a horror story. Let's just hope that what's his name ALLOWS the 2010 votes. He's already got the czars acting in place of most of the congress and senate. The elected people aren's just brain-washed, the czars just take over their jobs. Plus they (Obama and company) stuff ballots to make their puppet look as though he's won. They did this ostensibly right under our noses, but it wasn' was 40 years in the making.

Pat - If there was any voting fraud then I am sure that ACORN is behind it. So glad that ACORN was stung several times and that it made the news. Now you see the politicians scurry out of the light like cockroaches once the evil that is ACORN got a little too much exposure. But don't count them out yet. Acorn is complex. They are like a snake with a dozen heads and every time you lop one off two or three grow back in its place. There's a lot wrong and yes it is 40 years in the making. These people who are grabbing all the power were your typical college Vietnam war protesters in the 1960's. I protested the war because I didn't believe that we belonged in Vietnam but I still served because I would have been drafted had I not volunteered and I didn't carry on with radical ideas once the war ended as these old hippies are now. The corruption needs to stop or we are all doomed. Thanks for your support.
