The Lyrics

Not sure where I was going with this one, other than the thought that alcohol is the lubricant that keeps Washington D.C. from grinding to a halt. Don't Know The Original Song (DKTOS)? It's on YouTube.
Now the word from the manager
You gotta stack those bottles high
Those lobbyists and congressmen
Guzzle all of our supply

They pull up in their Cadillacs
They’ve been in meetings on the hill
And now they need refreshment
And an alcoholic thrill

We need more vodka
Stock the cash bar
Stock the cash bar
Yes lots more vodka
Stock the cash bar
Stock the cash bar

Republicans’ll order
A cocktail or some wine
The democrats’ll ask for
Local lager with a lime
The independents order
Whatever they can get
The lobbyists are paying
So it's not a public debt
And all of the servers
Are working fast
They begin to wail

We need more cognac
Stock the cash bar
Stock the cash bar
Yes lots more cognac
Stock the cash bar
Stock the cash bar

At "private" consultations
They're not in the public eye
The Congress says it's cool
They won't be compromised
But as they just keep on drinking
All the lobbyists will try
To peddle new laws
That the Congressfolk will buy

We need more brandy
Stock the cash bar
Stock the cash bar
Yes lots more brandy
Stock the cash bar
Stock the cash bar

Then someone leaked their whereabouts
They learned the press was on the way
So they rushed back to their offices
They did not delay

As soon as reporters came rushing into there
The bartenders knew that they better be prepared
As soon as the newsfolk saw liquor was there
The bartenders wailed

We need more whisky
Stock the cash bar
Stock the cash bar
Yes lots more whisky
Stock the cash bar
Stock the cash bar

We need more whisky
(Some think it's not kosher)
Stock the cash bar
Stock the cash bar
We need more mixers
(That the alcohol keeps flowing)
Stock the cash bar
Stock the cash bar
We need more, more, more
(To keep the country going)
Stock the cash bar
Stock the cash bar

This was really insightful (strange that the title doesn't match the parody though). 555 proof

Thanks Jonathan and Larry! Larry, I could say something like "the title is supposed to represent the solution to the issue" but the truth is that "Lock the Cash Bar" was the original title, and when the parody turned out to be "Stock the Cash Bar", I never went back and changed the title. And then I copy pasted to AmIRight.

That's hilarious. I've made mistakes like that before
