The Lyrics

A musical comment on the ridiculous government shutdown of 2013

They said shutdown
Shut the government down
Be a jerk, Boehner
Be a jerk now

Tea Party's screamin'
They've taken over the Hill now
Because they wanna have a shutdown now
Because Obamacare they wanna stop
They wanna put it all on the shelf
Though their agenda lost in 2012




Essential employees
House leaders hurtin' them, tryin' to bring Obama to his knees
Unless he does it their way
They'll work some feds without pay


For seniors, cryin' time
For workers, cryin' time
For poor kids, cryin' time
