The Lyrics

Your name is Big Shutdown,
Engaged in a tug-of-war with the White House.
Budget bill goes nowhere.
This Government Shutdown,
The Tea Party’s new mode of protesting—
Congress “no”-ing every day.

My name is No Health Care.
I saw my next-door neighbor die from HMOs.

Your name is Defund It,
Displacing Obamacare with WeDon’tCare,
Raising health costs every day.
Your name is Oh, Screw You.
Your slogan is My Way or the Highway—
The President’s much too “soul”.

I live in Foreclosure.
Think I won’t remember this ‘round election time?

(Deep doo-doo, deep doo-doo!
They tell me I can’t apply for a passport!
Soup kitchens’ supply lines are cut off!)

My name is The Country.
Someday I’ll see your fat, greedy carcasses in jail!

Sequestered and shut down!
You must have a soul the size of a matchbox,
Shriveled with contempt for us all.
You’re scared of Al Qaeda!
They don’t even have to do nothin’ to you!
You’ll cause your own country to fall.

There's a number of Stevie song titles that can apply to this shutdown: "Heaven Help Us All," "I Wish," possibly "Superstition," and, most obviously, "You Haven't Done Nothin'."

Very good, Mike--especially that last one!

Melanie Lee, this is hilarious – spoofing someone who actually thinks Obamacare is beneficial. Of course, in addition to other thoughtful people, doctors do not like Obamacare and labor does not like Obamacare. James Hoffa, president of the Teamsters’ Union (not exactly the Tea Party-type), begged Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid to fix it to prevent it from destroying the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class. When the House voted to connect continuing funding federal spending with suspending Obamacare, there were some Democrats who approved this. As compared with the passage of Obamacare, which was passed without any Republican votes. Again, I commend you for poking fun at someone who blames the shutdown on Republicans. Brilliant!
