The Lyrics

Her “winsomeness” camouflages that’s she’s snarling
Off on you billshit she will palm
Just listen: her New Age nonsense is unalloyed
An anti-vaxxer wacky drone

Oh, so-wrong Marianne
A con artist and scam
Her gaffe rate high
A laughable, wacky flim-flam

Smoke she blows…a pseudo-spiritual stew
She has really got the con artist’s touch
She’s not one of our better angels
Her out-of-touch pronouncements are just too much

Oh, so wrong, Marianne
An expert in flim-flam
Her gaffe rate high
A laughable wackjob and scam

Her lectures are a load o’ bunk
Not on Marie Kondo’s arc
To the gullible she will ply her “guru” shtik
But to others, joy it don’t spark

Oh, so wrong, Marianne
An expert in flim-flam
Her gaffe rate high
Her “messages” belong in spam

You’re standing up on stage with the gigantic crowd
Blurt out amid their droning
It sounds good until we go and search the web
And learn that you’re nothing but a phony

Oh, so wrong, Marianne
It just takes a web scan
To see you ply
Primarily a New Age scam

You say you can solve all with love
But then we see that you’ve been paid
By celebrities to be a dubious
“adviser”, you have made their grade

Oh, so wrong, Marianne
It just takes a web scan
To see you try
Primarily a New Age scam

You really are running a shifty con
Something you and Marie K. do the same
Why does anyone buy this mountin’ pile
Of bullshit you ply without shame?

Oh, so wrong, Marianne
It is time that we ran
From all your tries
At foisting off a New Age scam

I have been waiting for the song about Eric Swalwell since he dropped out of the race as part of my song parody contest. Nobody seems to know about him that much. Harpo, could I consider this song as part of your submission for my contest?
