The Lyrics

Charlie Rangel, smarmy Rangel, sharpie Rangel,
You have rankled Nancy.
Charlie Rangel,
How they snub him—
He’s a congressional socialist;
Now fellow travelers pretend he don’t exist.

Charlie Rangel,
Colleagues taunt him
For his angles that give Dems black eye.
Charlie wangled a chairmanship
To which he’ll say “bye.”

Wily Levin says, take chair-y away;
The Queen Nancy says he
Must make a vacancy.
Mother’ yellers then start to bloviate—
They open lips and prate,
Verbally masturbate.

So Charlie Rangel
Gets a drubbin’.
He don’t pay tax, à la Club D.C.,
But he got caught, and so he
Pays levies reluctantly.

Nancy’s sev’rin’ his chairmanship today.
It seems that slick Charlie
Likes criminality.
Mother’ yellers also are on the take,
But most don’t make mistake
Of not being opaque.

But Charlie Rangel’s
In the Club; in
The box he’ll sit for a penalty
Until his misdeeds will flee
From collective memory.

Charlie Rangel, Charlie Rangel,
All the angles knows he.
Charlie Rangel, Charlie Rangel,
In the gang: Hill, D.C.
Charlie Rangel, Charlie Rangel:
“Damn Nan’s transparency!”

Once again, JAB delivers the ultimate word on the subject. 555 votes not to strip you of your chairmanship! ;D

Good parody

Well, really, John, is it fair to expect someone to understand our complex tax code, merely because he's the Chairman of the House committee that makes the tax laws? ;)

Great job nailing yet *one more* non-taxpaying politician (Same wavelength today, are we?). Minor stress variances from TOS, but no problem singing. 555 for nailing this guy who Shell-ied out Fabarescations.

555 for splendid satirical skewering of our senatorial screwballs-- criminals and hypocrites alike.

LOL @ TT's pun :)
