Adapt to 'Band on the run' by Paul McCartney and
Wings.

Stuck inside these four walls,
In Ardmore Oklahoma
Won't redraw new boundaries
Not again, hate to
Draw you, draw you

They may never get out of there
Thoughts of giving it all away
To another constituency
All they need is another day
They may never get out of there

Well, The Rain Exploded With A Mighty Crash
And the weather sirens wailed
And the first one said to the second one there
I hope we don't get jailed
Dems on the run, dems on the run
And the ranger man and trooper Sam
Searched wide for everyone
For those dems On the run, dems on the run

Well the house speaker drew a heavy sigh
Seeing a quorum could not be won
And the bell was ringing on the senate floor
For the scoundrels on the run
Dems on the run, dems on the run
And the ranger man and trooper Sam
Searched wide for everyone
For those dems on the run, dems on the run
Dems on the run, Dems on the run

Well the night was falling as that Austin town
Began to settle down
As statewide they go searching everywhere
But they're nowhere to be found
Dems on the run, dems on the run
It's not theirs to judge and hold a grudge
And hide from everyone
They're just dems on the run, dems on the run
Dems on the run. dems on the run
