The Lyrics

Another in my series of anti-Republican song parodies. These greedy sorry-ass jacklegs make it too easy. Expect more as the election cycle goes on and the GOP candidates stick their feet in their mouths!
The Tea Party goons...
brought our credit rating down
There's no room for compromise in this town

Sh*t out of luck
And Republicans just don't care
The economy is stuck
And it's not moving anywhere

They thought they'd found a friend
To get them out of this boat
Someone to donate a million
In return for votes

It's a pitiful day
Stocks fall, you feel like
It's a pitiful day
They let Bush get away

They've all been bought
And they're owned by corporations
We're stuck in the mud
In the maze of their legislation

You hate these clowns
Even though they never speak true
They've screwed you over...
And they're screwing us over too

It's a pitiful day
They let Bush get away
It's a pitiful day

"Trust me", Romney says with a poker face
"Elect me...."
We know he's just a hopeless case

See their wealth, their greed and gold
See China and all our debt they hold
See the unions broken, no clout
See the white racists there in the deep South
See the Taliban fires at night
See the oil profits reach a new height
And see the child with no food in her mouth
After the flood, FEMA never came out

It was a pitiful day
When they let Bush get away
Pitiful day

Romney----might just come in second place
Perry----he's a bona-fide nut case.

What you don't have you won't get it now
What you don't know they won't tell you now...
What you don't have you won't get it now
Won't get it now
It was a pitiful day

Jeff, nice one ;-D 555!!! I'm a REP and yet I do not believe in dinging parodists on ideology-just the songs. I have a good suggestion for you- how about Miley Cyrus' "Party in the USA" as "Tea Party in the USA"???!!!

I have one better coming....R.O.C.K. in the USA. I leave it to your imagination what the new 4 letters will be. Have to find a way to make it "printable"......

Jeff - As always I forgive your genuine if misguided sentiments. At least the "artistry" is not trying to drive you from this site. Keep writing even though I'll never contribute here again. ;D

Misguided? Read Rick Perry's book...it reads like Mein Kampf..... Eric Cantor says "No disaster relief for Hurricane Irene without spending cuts"........The GOP shot down Mr. Obama's jobs bill BEFORE he even released it........Michelle Bachmann says she can single-handedly bring gas down below $2/gal.........and you're calling ME misguided? If you really are an "old man Ribber", after they take away your S.S. and Medicare, see if you still think I am misguided.
