The Lyrics

The following is written from the point of view of someone who does NOT believe that Mitt Romney is a lying sociopath who will say anything to get elected -- anything, that is, except "Tax the rich." I had to mess with the pacing on the title to make it work. It was either this, or use "forty-seven" in place of "Stairway to Heaven," or rewriting the Escape Club's "Wild Wild West" with its opening line of "Forty-seven deadbeats living in the backstreets."
percent, a mental reason.
That hope and change?
Believe? Not me.
I do not need a heart.

Yes, forty-seven
percent, a mental reason.
Please, give your not-earned
cash to me.
You don't deserve a part.

I sneer at you every morning.
I dream of a win, Election Night.
My god, it is made out of money.
For you, there'll be none in sight!

Yes, forty-seven
percent, a mental reason.
That hope and change?
Believe? Not me.
I do not need a heart.

Taxing the rich guy means he will have less money to buy what I have to sell or to hire me to do something for him. The government will just hand that money over to al-Qaeda to keep the war going or use it to pay the interest on its debt to China.

Ask Osama bin Laden if our government is giving money to al-Qaeda. This isn't the Reagan years, you stupid Teabagger.
