The Lyrics

I don't know who first recorded TOS, so I'll give credit to the guy who wrote it. So many politicians to pick on, only so many verses I can write at one sitting.
You put your right wing in
You put your right wing out
But then if you don't win
You can flap it all about
'Cause you're the politician
And you're fishin' for some votes
That's what it's all about

You put your left wing in
You put your left wing out
But then if you don't win
We can hear you scream and shout
'Cause you're the politician
And you're fishin' for some votes
That's what it's all about

You pander to the left
You pander to the right
You pander to the deaf
Even though there's none in sight
'Cause you're the politican
And you're fishin' for some votes
That's what it's all about

You use a Southern drawl
And you say "hi there, y'all"
Or take expensive trips
And tell us to read your lips
'Cause you're the politican
And you're fishin' for some votes
That's what it's all about

Fly on a private jet
Create the Internet
And you can change your stance
Or just sit back on your ranch
'Cause you're the politican
And you're fishin' for some votes
That's what it's all about

Well there you go again
You say we're girlie men
Or that you feel our pain
Or scream like you're insane
'Cause you're the politican
And you're fishin' for some votes
That's what it's all about

'Cause you're the politician
'Cause you're the politician
'Cause you're the politician
You're what it's all about
