The Lyrics

The events in this parody are fictional. VERY similar events, however, have occurred throughout the nation, especially in the D.C. area. You may be next. ;D

What the devil's going on?
What's that angry shouting roar?
There's a mob out on my lawn,
Some three hundred folks or more.
They arrived by charter bus,
And they're acting mean and hard.
Lord, they're making such a fuss.
There's a protest in my yard.

Some are wearing purple shirts*
And they're yelling through bullhorns.
They are spitting on my daughter
And they've scared my twin newborns.
Now they're blocking the front door,
Spraying paint on all the glass.
I've no clue why they're so sore.
There's a riot on my grass.

(Instrumental break to bridge)

Wait, I think I just found out
Why they're doing this to me:
It's 'cause my name is Scott Walker,**
But we live in Tennessee!
They don't care I'm the wrong guy.
All they checked out was my name.
They've all got blood in their eye.
Now our birdhouse is aflame.

If this makes it to T.V.,
They will blame the Tea Par-ty!

* = The "uniform" of S.E.I.U., a group which the President calls his "foot soldiers". ** = The Governor of Wisconsin, vilified personal target of organized union activity. Such behavior has been called "American democracy at its finest"...not by Saul Alinsky but rather by politicians and the media. ;D

I'm no fan of the gov., but I am a fan of your work, OMR. Nice twist at the end.

Such protests take "the politics of personal destruction" to a new level. Thanks, OMR, for bringing attention to this practice that until recently was reserved for "evil" corporate officers. But if anyone locates the amIright One-ster, I'll buy the purple shirts ... ;-)

Two of my favorite Barrys! Thanks. John - As a fellow retiree who worked hard for his pension, I do have a few mixed feelings about Wisconsin. Brother Mitchell - Yes, I see many acronyms all over the bomber's scoring finger. ;D

Echoing John's comments. Not a fan of Wisconsin Walker and his arrogance, but I've no desire to take my disdain on someone with a similar name. Idiocy is not the exclusive property of any group.

Thanks, and quite well said Warren. ;D
