The Lyrics

The media have tried to hide Obama appointee Van Jones and his wacky past and beliefs, but we who know will never let it go. Especially when, considering all of the radicals and nutjobs in Obama's circle, he's just the tip of the iceberg.
SO LONG VAN JONES

I plopped down in my easy chair and turned on PBS
This leftist commie named Van Jones was railin’ on with Tavis
He ranted and raved ’bout whitey poisoning all a the poor
Then said he wanted some of that cool green
Was gonna change our ways
And then Obama (and then)
He made him a Czar (and then)
Worked on the Stimulus (and then, and then …!)

And then - So long Van Jones!
Meathead Jones
Jive talkin’ Jones
Ol’ Marxist Jones
So long, goodbye our Green Czar Jones

Now ol’ Van Jones was educated at the best of schools
But deep inside those ivy covered walls he learned to play the fools
Down in California he fit right in as the story’s told
Van Jones said, “We’ll take all that government gold
“We’ll say the Earth has a fever!
“Invent solutions (and then)
“That don’t fix nothing’!” (and then)
The prez let him screw everyone!” (and then, and then…!)

And then - So long Van Jones
Meathead Jones
Jive talkin’ Jones
Ol’ Marxist Jones
So long, goodbye our Green Czar Jones

We got so bugged we started looking hard into this guy’s past
And Lord Almighty eyes bugged out at what came out so hard and fast
Pallin’ with cop killers and professing “better red than dead”
Said, "Agree with me - I can be an A-hole, Jed!
"We’re going to transform our society
"Power to the people! (and then)
"Say crazy things! (and then)
"9-11’s an inside job!" (and then)
Then more YouTube (and then, and then...!)

And then - So long Van Jones
Meathead Jones
Jive talkin’ Jones
Ol’ Marxist Jones
So long, goodbye our Green Czar Jones
Be a "Van guard!" You know these guys keep coming back! ;-)

AMEN, meta!!!!(Holy Jesus, those Czars are not going to allow me to say "Amen"!)(Oh, my GOD, the Czars are not going to allow me to say "Jesus"!). Holy MACKERAL(I guess), since they're probably not going to allow me to say GOD as well.. It's really getting out of hand. they're all RATS, and I guess that makes sense because the "environmental" Czar is going to prosecute us for killing RATS!!! See, they're already practicing self-preservation!!!

Nice job meta4, 555 czar character flaws.

@ Mark S - Very funny, Mark! Especially about the laws to protect the rats. I've been calling all these people lemmings for so long but never made the environmental connection. Are you aware of the Cass Sunstein character? Our new Regulatory Czar? He believes animals should have legal rights and wants to ban hunting!

@ blackjack21 - Thanks for the v/c. Are you sure that shouldn't be "czaracter flaws?" :-D

Loved the title. As soon as I saw the OS used, I thought - perfect song to use. Great job on write, especially all the "and then" parts from OS. Well done, Meta

Maybe Jones will reply in true Coasters fashion..."Why is everybody always pickin' on me?" Great write.

Such a shameless act of Van-dalism, Forsby! But here's $555 to help bail you out of the "slammer"! :D

@ Timmy1000 - Thanks! Yeah, I wanted to do A VJ parody and the song practically leaped into my consciousness! :-)

OMR - That's a GREAT line! *LOL* He was a clown and he got caught though.

Awww, thanks Fiddlegirl. I was so getting tired of veggie burgers and alfalfa sprouts. :-)

Czar-tastic parody, Meta4! I echo all the comments above! A 555-czar parody!
AFW - September 14, 2009 - Report this comment
Very well adapted to the original...funny spoofing

555 (..again.) I'm just realizing I don't know more of the Coasters discography other than Charlie Brown. I thought Ray Stevens originally did this. I'm only two decades off.

@ Christie - Thanks. Glad you liked it. Love all the Czar puns. :-)

@ AFW - Kind words sir! I appreciate it!

@ LSUFreek - Thanks, Freek! My gramma used to sing it to me to rock me to sleep! I've never forgotten it! ;-)
