"Those Were The Days"
Parody Song Title:
"The New Malaise"
Once the U.S. voted for The Chosen.
They believed his words of Change and Hope.
But alas 'twas merely show and posin'.
We now know it was naught but rope-a-dope.
The New Malaise, my friend. This stuff has got to end.
Each day it seems the public has been had.
With all this blundering - it has us wondering
Was Jimmy Carter's tenure quite this bad?
(For as the country begs, all we get are more regs.
Change your lightbulbs! More rules are truly mad.)
Almost double digit unemployment.
Wave on wave of stimulus and yet
All this new big government deployment
Has only more than tripled U.S. debt.
The New Malaise, my pal. It makes us wonder how
We're back in times we hoped were dead and gone.
Both Dems and G.O.P. - will drown in misery
If we can't find ourselves another Ron.
(No shovel-ready jobs, just bailouts by the gobs -
But you'll be fine if you have gold to pawn!)
Chosen One swore he'd bring us together,
Lectured us "Be civil in discourse".
All this quickly changed to stormy weather.
These ringing words were just a Trojan horse.
The New Malaise, ami. The pledge turned out to be
Another promise shattered into shards.
Instead of real debate - we just hear words of hate.
They play the racial and class warfare cards.
(Must have one set of views. Must vilify Fox News.
Must rub them out! Don't leave the smallest trace.
Comply or we warn you - we'll send S.E.I.U.
And they'll invade your home and your workplace!)
Like the days of Peanut Jimmy Carter
All seems lost. The naton is depressed.
Each new program's worse than a non-starter.
I pray that this can't be our country's best.
The New Malaise, mein Herr. And now Obamacare -
The government intrudes in brand new ways.
We've seen it all before. Late seventies once more.
Who'll save us from our dreaded New Malaise?
(Strange! No hope but LOTS of change!
How can we re-arrage - The New Ma-laise?)
