The Lyrics

Like political speech, this bears repetition (and has plenty of it, just like the OS).
It's too much pork! It's too much pork!
I'd give thumbs-up to the stimulus bill,
Refill my cup from the stimulus bill.
I'd give thumbs-up to the stimulus bill,
Refill my cup from the stimulus bill;
But I can't swallow the stimulus pill
'Cause it's too much pork.

It's too much pork! It's too much pork!
I'd like to shoo in the stimulus bill,
And pitch the new in the stimulus bill.
Instead I'll boo at the stimulus bill,
Then pitch my shoe at the stimulus bill,
And somehow make right the stimulus bill
'Cause it's too much pork.

According to a survey report,
Ev'ry average man you know
Lately finds his hard-earned money is short
And his temper's about to blow;
But when the economy was 'way up
And the market was sizzlin' hot,
Missed a chance to enhance his lot.

But now it's too, too, too much pork!
It's too much pork! It's too, too much pork!
I'd like to screw with the stimulus bill
And pitch the Blue from the stimulus bill.
Tax cuts renew with the stimulus bill,
They're overdue in the stimulus bill;
But brother, how might the stimulus bill
Pass without such pork?

According to C.B.O. Reports,
Ev'ry compromise plan to grow
Much depends on quid-pro-quo of a sort
That Dem members endure, but know
That when their majority is 'way up
And a crisis is sizzlin' hot,
Mr. Reid need not plead,
Mr. Frank needn't spank,
Ms. Pelosi knows ev'ry aye is bought.

That's why there's so, so, so much pork!
There's so ... mu-uch ... pork!
Like a gallstone or kidney stone, this too shall pass. I'm at bjmitchel@att.net for feedback.

Your 'other white meat' was awfully tasty! Agree with yer sentiments...

Unfortunately, you are correct, Barry. This will pass; but the economy will not get any better and, somewhere down the road, future generations will wonder why we screwed them.
