The Lyrics


They’re in league with the lobby men
and the one percent at the top,
annoying us every day
with their loud semantic slop.
They’re shiftless—a cadre of rats;
their integrity is nil.
Whenever they’re blathering
only serves to make me ill.

[chorus]
Most people don’t like ’em:
f**kups in Congress,
f**k the Congress!
But their patrons love ’em!
suckups in Congress,
f**k the Congress!


They’re just in it for profit—
that’s what is goin’ down.
Degenerates who’re wasteful
in that lazy Congress town.
Legislators have been bought off
in a “job” that’s really plum.
Our pockets they are pickin’;
as at us their noses thumb.
The goons in the Mafia
will treat you fair,
unlike reps who rail.

[chorus]

The blowhards in their Temple
are bringing the swag in.
They get the voters fooled,
then do the bagman thing.
They’re masters of misdirection. . .
legislative leg’demain.
This crowd always grifts,
’cause they’re on the gravy train.

[chorus]

These legislative blighters
do not do shit to earn their pay,
which is a mere drop in the bucket
when it’s pay to play.

Congressional Mafia is
chauffeured here and there.
These steaming piles treat you,
never, fair and square.

The goons in this Mafia are
running free there.
They should be in jail.

[spoken throughout the last chorus]
It’s a rotten Congress:
fundamentalists, nuts, fakers
and patron-potlatch-takers.

Mr. Barry, you probably have the largest vocabulary of anyone on Amiright and you can't think of any creative verbs that do not require asterisks?
Onslaught - March 01, 2013 - Report this comment
Well, I thought it was good 555.

The arc of your compliment warmed my c***les, Noah. But to paraphrase ST Coleridge: I fear the semantic censor/I fear sans ast's be banned. (See what I mean: the site starred my homophone of "caukles.") Thanks much, Onslaught.

I don't want to censor anyone, Mr. Barry. But, after reading your last two lines that demonstrate cleverness and creativity, it was disappointing to see that you went the way of the lazy parodist by using the most overused word in the language in your title and chorus. And I am glad that you have warm cockles.

How'd you do it, Onslaught? My "cockles" got altered. As to use of the F work, worked nicely with the OS title, but I could have gone with Pox on Congress; Rockhead Congress; Schlock from Congress; Rot in Congress; Rogers, Congress; and other possibilities.

F word, that is. Second time, my Congress cockles comment went through. PAX, man. . .security code.

I always find it annoying to have my c**kles altered. Interesting that sometimes Amiright's filter alters them, and sometimes it doesn't.

Since I have been dead for 170 years, I might have a different perspective than other readers, but I would have preferred one of your alternative titles. Maybe "Pox on Congress" was my fave.

Such disdain toward Congress...Sounds good to me!
