The Lyrics

There are millions upon millions of us armchair politicians pooting away at our devices every day, parading our plaints and (perhaps) posting as well our solutions thereto on all manner of media, social and otherwise. Oh, but what a small percentage of these visionaries ever takes to the polls with such confidence and zeal! Could it be that the humble voting booth, with its rudimentary user interface and simple, lockstep operation, is a tool that, paradoxically, is infinitely more subtle and difficult to wield with discernible effect in gratifying our desires and needs? Could it be voter apathy? Could it be I’ve been unjustly disenfranchised? Could it be it’s raining? Could it be…? Could it be…?

So you’d like to go air all of your notions
You’re so eager to share daily devotions

(But) You’ve got to vote, ya GOT to, not “maybe”
Got to vote, don’t pass the polls over
Got to vote, ya got to, not maybe
Got to voooo-oo-oooo-ooote!

“Ever since his term of tripe began
Obama’s stink has spread from here to Iran
And he’s made our country worse with each policy
He’s always had it in his heart to shart on you and me.

“Our land’s at risk of annihilation
It’s a failing of that socialistic Obamanation!”

So you’d like to go air all of your notions
You’re so eager to share daily devotions

(Well) You’ve got to vote, ya GOT to, not “maybe”
Got to vote, don’t pass the polls over
Got to vote, ya got to, not maybe
Got to voooo-oo-oooo-ooote!

“Earth has never seen such vicious storms
And it’s humans who are causing the whole globe to warm
Oh the bad old fossil fuels will kill us all
We’ve got to love each living thing, it matters not how small!

“Our enemies are big corporations
They’ve been lining all their pockets from our Earth’s devastation.”

So you’d like to go air all of your notions
You’re so eager to share daily devotions

So you’d like to go air all of your notions
You’re so eager to share daily devotions

(So) Get out and vote, go vote, and vote sagely
Cast your vote, don’t hand the reins over
Got to vote, ya got to, not maybe
Cast your vote, don’t hope on a clover
Got to vote, ooo-oooh-hooooo
Got to vote, vote on with yo red self
Got to vote, vote on with yo black self
Got to vote, vote on with yo blue self
Got to vote, hue-yeah, hue-yeah
Got to vote, hue-yeah, hue-yeah
Got to vote (repeat and fade)
