For the past thirty years or so I’ve heard Republican broad hints That never quite come to pass. They must think I am dense; That I sit and watch my TV And get all stoked to hear them Promise they will set things right But reality never comes near them.
They talk about our poverty gap And how they will narrow it down And how they will lower interest And they will quit fooling around. They go on about their opponents, Even when they have good records, And then the election comes and The people fail to get it together.
So every eight years they vote, These fools I must call my peers And throw the good guy out. Every freaking eight years. An even once after just four They told the good guy goodbye Then put in a world class crook. Can anyone really say why?
I’ve watched my fellow man Go bonkers like this repeatedly And vote in some twisted clown That ******* us up completely. Nixon looked like the creep he was; A greasy, rude and stupid man. Then Reagan was a liar and a looter I never was that fool’s loyal fan.
In between we’d get someone In the job who wanted things fixed. He would work hard as he could And pray things wouldn’t be nixed. But the current bubble-headed villain Said he’d take the country back; All his predecessor was guilty of Was of being unremittingly black.
So, what’s with these people here Who can’t tell a good thing from bad? Why can’t they recognize success And good times we have had? All indexes were up, things were fine Things were not a bit bad that fall. So why did the half bright-Americans Choose a guy with no experience at all?
Surely they don’t think any guy Who doesn’t give a **** about them Would care about more than rich buddies. Of course not! That would be just dim. Yet they did it and proved that fools, When they’re left to play with the adults, Can ruin things when they’re going well. Now we must live with the results.
