The Lyrics

Although I have serious reservations about the huge amount of legislation desperately being slammed through Congress at the last minute, I have to hand it to our elected representatives. They've finally learned how to get to work! Perhaps every session should be a 60 day Lame Duck fiasco. ;D

(Opening Vamp - Words Spoken Over The Music)

Barack: Alright, you Democrats. Ready for one last Lame Duck session?
All: I'll say we are! Let's do it now!
Barack: Nancy?
Nancy: OK
Barack: Harry?
Harry: OK
Barack: Barney? Barney? BAR-NEY!!!
Barney: OKAY!!

(All Singing) Lame Duck session will not last.
Our agenda - pass it fast!
Soon we'll be minority,
Stick it to the G.O.P.!
Our Dream Act would should be swell.
(Barney Solo) First repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell!
(All) We must bring them to their knees.
Tea Party S.O.B.s!

(Extra unbudgeted verse - passed by a Continuing Resolution)

Tax cuts made us raise a fuss,
But we got new stimulus.
Point eight tril for our projects.
Kept our programs - saved our necks!
Pass the food bill for Michelle.
(Barney solo) Must repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell!
(All) The Start Treaty we advise,
Will make Barack seem wise.

(Instrumental Chorus - Spoken Parts Over The Second Half)

Barack: OK, Congress. Get ready. That was very good, Nancy.
Nancy: First, you must sing the song, then you'll know what's in it!
Barack: Very good, Harry.
Harry: Why would ANY Latino EVER vote for a Republican!
Barack: Barney, you are really tone deaf, so watch it. Barney? Barney? BAR-NEY!!!
Barney: OKAY!!

(All Singing) Net Neutrality we'll sell.
(Barney Solo) Just repeal Don't Ask! Don't Tell!
(All) Get it all done in Lame Duck
Or we'll be out of luck.
Get it all done in Lame Duck
The One we will not buck!

(Spoken Over Outro Music)

All: Let's keep doing it! Yeah, let's really do some stuff
Barack: No, that's enough. Let's not overdo it.
All: What do you mean overdo it? We want to do it again!
Barack: Now wait a minute. Who's the President here?

(Dissolving into the usual Congressional babble)

5s for a great summary of the Swan Song of the Liberals! Esp. liked the pokes at Nancy & Barney. Too bad Congress adjourned before singing "See the Blazing Constitution." ;=)

Very funny. Does any other democracy allow legislators who have been voted out of office to continue crafting legislation as a last gasp act of what can only be described as revenge? The government is still operating on a schedule set in the days of post riders and stage coaches, when it took months to transmit the election results and to get the new congress to Washington. The telephone was invented in 1876 and the airplane in 1903. Let's move into the 19th century, fellows.
