The Lyrics

How long?
You're not working at all
Your old withered song
At times I believe you've lost your mind
Missing the boat, what's the matter this time?

Will you help someone?
Really help someone?

We've gotta gripe
A whole lotta nothing coming from the right
The party line has been wrong before
Help out, before we're all poor.

We've been waiting
On a plan from you
To help us through this strife
We've been waiting,
Whatcha gonna do?
Your mind is sewed up tight

All your hating
Does no one good
It's phony and contrived
Yeah, waiting
On some answers, fool
Our country to revive

It's no good
When you say 'no', it's understood
It's simply a crutch, just a word you say
Thinking a thought will get in your way

And you help no one.
You never help no one.

You're but a yawn
You're too busy believing that the left is wrong
While those out of work and on the street
Are searching for some relief

They've been waiting
For buffoons like you
They're getting awfully pissed
They've been saying,
"That's enough from you,
Stop crying 'Socialist!'"

Start debating
Say something new
Have backbone, take a risk
Yeah, maybe,
There's a someone who,
A someone you'll assist

We've been waiting on a plan from you,
Yes, we're waiting
Help make our future bright.
We're still waiting on a plan from you
And still waiting...

I would have liked to see more cheeky wordplay, but even though I'm at odds with your perspective I'll not trash you with anonymous ones. ;D

Feeling less cheeky today, I'm afraid. I'll aim for more grins on my next one.Thanks for the read, though!. ;D

5's to average up. What's with the Unabomber/commenter today? The name in German means "from trip" which makes no sense.

Excellent pacing to OS, but I'm kind of like OMR... I think political parodies are better when there's some cheekiness to them-- not just venom. Still and all, no reason to "bomb" it. 555.

Old Man and Fiddle- You're probably right (was that a pun???) Anyhoo, the chuckles were far and few between, a result of some venting. I promise more cheek in a week. And ParodyFan, not sure what's up with that Unabomber either, but for certain, the stench will dissipate soon!

I liked it, but it could have used some laughs
