The Lyrics

A very evenhanded parody
Jill Stein thinks it’s too close
Calls for recounts, again here we go
She thinks that somebody's fooling around
With the machines for the voting time
I don’t think that I believe it
That those states went red, though
Wisconsin soon will be deciding
Pennsylvania, Michigan, maybe, oh

It’s ‘cause it was close
Recount overdose
Change results? Don’t know

But I see her point
Results disappoint
Some heads might disjoint

The recount is a last minute
Way to change the results
The recount might find votes not counting
Change unlikely though
The states are crucial and they are close
Isn't that bizarre
Every little thing elections do
Makes us wish we could vote for aardvarks

The election, we all want it to end
But we want our candidate to win
Turn off radios, TVs, computers
Let’s not hear anything ‘til it’s found out

So why doesn’t it end?
Fall on tears, my friends
For recount they send

Why are there problems?
Why can’t they count them?
Wish they’d both get phlegm

The recount is just one last shot
For the less worse one to win
The recount is a door to finding
Just what’s happenin’
The states are only getting closer
Isn't that bizarre
Every little thing the recount does
Answers the votes with a question mark

So why have we voted?
If some aren’t counted?
Now they’ll recount it

Was there some stuff wrong?
No end to election song?
Who won all along?

The recount is a strange tool used
When too close in a state
The recount is a door to finding
Out before it’s too late
And watching over our lucky charms
We’ll see the results
Every little thing the recount does
Lets them see what went on while we halt
