The Lyrics

Way back when I was an immature pre-teen, I came up with the idea to parody this song’s chorus hook as “why not…pull down someone’s pants?” But, I never got the opportunity to expand it into a full-length parody…until now. Recently, Jeremy Faison, the leader of the Tennessee House Republican Caucus, went to a high school basketball game and got so angry at the way it was being called that he tried pulling down the referee’s pants. It really does seem like a metaphor for recent American politics, doesn’t it?
Well, you’re a politician
And when you’re on the job
You have to act professional
You can’t just be a knob

But when the session ends, you know
You can live the dream
Be a jerk if you desire
And let off lots of steam

You go to watch your son play
At his B-Ball game
Well, now is not the time to show
That you’ve got any shame

Paul’s the referee this time
He makes a call you hate
So give him a piece of your mind
Oh wouldn’t that be great?

So, why not take a crazy chance?
Why not pull down Paulie’s pants?
You won’t win this moment
Unless your temper’s hot
So why not, why not

Election Day is over
And the results are in
And the numbers clearly show
That your guy didn’t win

So to overturn the vote
You swarm into D.C.
Some cops show up and block your way
But you won’t turn and flee

No…why not take a crazy chance?
Why not pull down all their pants?
No one wins a moment
Unless their temper’s hot
So why not, why not?

Oh, sometimes things don’t go your way
Oh, that’s when you mutiny
Oh, let’s all blow our tops today
This is how we do things in the GOP, you see

You’ll always be a loser
Unless you go berserk
So this advice is certain to work

Why not smear your poop on the walls
Why not kick somebody’s balls
Put your fur suit on now
And give ‘em all you got
So why not, why not?

Why not take a crazy chance?
Why not pull down someone’s pants?
Unleash your emotions
Let reason go to pot
So why not, why not?
