The Lyrics

If you hear leftards whining about job losses even as our nation's economy soars and our unemployment rates remain stunningly low, it's possible (and likely) that they're just complaining to complain. On the other hand, a lot of the crummy states where they live are the kinds of places that are dragging on the average. In New Jersey, for instance, high taxes and shoddy government recently combined with Corzine's broken campaign promises to produce a massive idling of nonessential government employees. As the term "nonessential" implies, nobody missed them much while they were out except for their fellow space wasters. Tough break, guys.
You don't like working; you'd rather drink beer;
You're always on the far left side.
You waste all your spare income on the lottery;
You're a moron from New Jersey.

Gambling contributes to revenue;
Taxation rates have gone sky-high;
You still can't pay your bills, I see!
You're all morons in New Jersey.

Woe! You're an idiot; you're a lethal idiot:
You're a moron from New Jersey.
Woe! You're all idiots; you're all lethal idiots:
You're all morons in New Jersey.

If Corzine shut the state down as some said,
He was the hero of the day;
He left you stewing in your vitriol and bile;
It's too bad it couldn't stay that way.

Woe! You're an idiot; you're a lethal idiot:
You're a moron from New Jersey.
Woe! You're all idiots; you're all lethal idiots:
You're all morons in New Jersey.

Solvency's a rarity; it leads to some disparity
Between the things you get and what you want;
Things you want, apparently, depend almost inherently
On ghostly loans that will return to haunt...

Takes more than spending bills to bring in jobs;
Takes more than a tax to bring in cash.
All gambling brings in is parasites and yobs;
The work ethic will vanish in a flash.

If Corzine shut the state down as some said,
He was the hero of the day;
He left you stewing in your vitriol and bile;
It's too bad it couldn't stay that way.

It's too bad it couldn't stay that way.
It's too bad it couldn't stay that way.

It's too bad it couldn't stay that way.
(Woe! You're an idiot; you're a lethal idiot:)
It's too bad it couldn't stay that way.
(You're a moron from New Jersey.)
It's too bad it couldn't stay that way.
(Woe! You're all idiots; you're all lethal idiots:)
It's too bad it couldn't stay that way.
(You're all morons in New Jersey.)

It's too bad it couldn't stay that way.
(Woe! You're an idiot; you're a lethal idiot:)
It's too bad it couldn't stay that way.
(You're a moron from New Jersey.)
It's too bad it couldn't stay that way.
(Woe! You're all idiots; you're all lethal idiots:)
It's too bad it couldn't stay that way.
(You're all morons in New Jersey.)
If you're one of the few reasonable people left in New Jersey, I suggest you take the same course of action the others have and move to some other less silly state. Of course in most of New Jersey, as the old joke about Cuba says, everybody who can swim or run already has.
