The Lyrics

Arm me wit' attorneys . . .
Jim drop a load on 'em . . .

(U can't write this . . . Velvet Hammer time!)

(Background vocals: Vote right, count right)

(Hmmm) O.P.P. how can I explain
It I'll take it day by day it
To have y'all jump and scream and singin' it
O is for Other P is for People
The last P that's not that simple (huh)
It's sort of like a way to call the past Prez election a fiction
It's ten little letters that are missin'
Yeah you lose it on occasion if the voting system
Isn't modern seems I gotta start the explainin' bust it
You ever go to vote for Prez and thought you chose your man
But my brothas sistahs you got it wrong that's not the plan
You're really voting for electors the real selectors
Electoral College graduates fools from old slave rules, it's not a front
A F to the R to the O to the N to the T
Oiligarch, not democracy

Oh, that's what's so scary

It's O.P.P. time you get it there's no room for
Democracy there's just room to . . .

Spin it

How many voters out there know just what I'm gettin' at?
Who think it's wrong cuz they're DeLayin' not recountin'
It? Well if you do that's O.P.P. and you're not down wit'
It but if you don't here's your membership

Ya down wit' O.P.P? Hell no, not me! (3X)
Who's down wit'O.P.P.? Every last Bushie! (1X)
Ya down wit'O.P.P.? Hell no, not me! (3X)
Who's down wit'O.P.P? All the Bushies! (1X)

Now for the Bushies O.P.P. means somethin' gifted
Florida courts the bane but the Supreme's a venue different
It was the longest worst of 36 days-the meanest
It's a five letter word rhymin' wit' keenest and the uncleanest
I won't get into that I'll do it wit' some hesitancy
I'll say the last P stands for Presidency
That's when in the White House the loser takes up residency
(Now Supremes hear a case remand a case back to me)
Now tell me have you ever known a voter who had
Like a chad or ballot bad you (just) had to void their vote cuz
He was for state's rights, you wanted him he wanted you
And you knew the undervotes were in doubt but he was going to
Be Prez anyway, you couldn't be seen wit' him at all
And still you didn't care cuz in your Supreme closed chambers no one but
Y'all are there when y'all are finished y'all could leave
And y'all know then y'all could select the Skull and Bones
Right in our highest Court, now don't be shy because if you're down
I want your robes up high vote O.P.P. (O.P.P.)
Olson said wit' pride "When you write it, write it well and make sure
That you're not down wit' the recount."

(We have a remedy . . Stop!!)

Ya down wit' O.P.P? Hell no, not me! (3X)
Who's down wit' O.P.P? S.O.S. Kathy! (1X)
Ya down wit' O.P.P? Hell no, not me! (3X)
Who's down wit' O.P.P? Justice Kennedy! (1X)

(Queen Esther?! Whatevah! Say it ain't so, Joe!)

Our system O.P.P.'d us I had a vote
And I thought that mattered for democracy
No lie-the minoritay has got the authoritay
What went wrong? The Electoral College and cuz we vote plurality
Small states overrepresentin' and the winner take it all
Brothas sistahs scream it y'all, cuz the system has got to fall
There's more than two parties yo! More ways to vote, bet you didn't know
Approval, range and Condorcet-why not try 'em?
Votin' for multiple candidates, you shouldn't decry 'em
We need to say one voter many votes, it's much more than these
Damn machines, these votes went bad from little chads I shouldn't of brought
My heart cause I knew this was O.P.P. hell right from the very start
Come on come on now let me tell you what's it all about
When you've got more votes you can't be recountin' anymore
That's rule #1 in this O.P.P. establishment pile your briefs and pleadings on
And keep the clock a tickin'
Disgustin', isn't it? A vile kind of business. Many of us will
Be hurt real bad by this undemocratic O.P.P. BS
I'm proud to proclaim it when O.P.P came America's not wit' it

Ya down wit' O.P.P.? Hell no, not me! (3X)
Who's down wit' O.P.P.? The G.O.P.! (1X)
Ya down wit' O.P.P? Hell no, not me! (3X)
Who's down wit' O.P.P? The G.O.P.! (1X)

Not an easy song to parody, but you pulled it off. Also, you beat me to it becasue I was tryingto wrote an OPP parody about Clinton.

I just believe in me, Yoko and me, and that's reality . . . Thanks for your comments! I was hoping to get NBN to record this, but then 9/11 intervened. A minor loss, in perspective.
