The Lyrics

These lyrics based on this old song were inspired by the picture in this new editorial. I imagine them being sung last Monday, alternately by Us The People and the Representative from Michigan's 1st District, leader of the last holdout bloc against medical system reform legislation.
Hang down your head, Bart Stupak
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Bart Stupak
Poor man, you're hounded guy

I met Nan who was countin'
Votes that were pro-life
Pressure sure was mountin'
Had to end the strife

Hang down your head, Bart Stupak
Rang 'round the Fed'ral sty
Had in your head, Bart Stupak
No more unborns should die

Then Prez Obama
Beckoned, stared at me
Had executive order
Lied: abortions won't be free

Health care was dead, Bart Stupak
Senate bill would not fly
Hang down your head, Bart Stupak
Poor man, you backed down. Why?

Hang down your head, Bart Stupak
Fangs found in head were dry
Hang down your head, Bart Stupak
Poor man, we've found out why

This time tomorrow
Reckon where I'll be
Down in some White House galley
Hangin' while Nan lights in glee

You made your bed, Bart Stupak
Lie down in it and sigh
Hang down your head, Bart Stupak
Poor man, November's nigh

To fit TOS better, I'd change "were" in line 6 to "looked", "in head were" in line 22 to "were red but", "in it" in line 30 to "with dread" and "random" in closing to "representative".

Obama bought Stupak's vote with our money. I'd be less opposed to abortion if it were made retroactive.
Old Man Ribber - March 24, 2010 - Report this comment
It appears that Stupak's anti-abortion beliefs were every bit as sincere as Senator Ben Nelson's. All we need to complete the picture is "Neville" Stupak emerging from the White House waving Obama's executive order and promising peace in our time. Good write! ;D

The joke's on Stupak.The E/O was probably written in disapearing ink. Might as well print the dollar in it too. It will soon be worth no more than blank paper.

He must think the people in his district are idiots; they know what he voted for and we'll see what happens in next election.

Memo to Caroline Kennedy, who decides this: Give Bart Stupak that JFK Library's Profile in Courage Award. He could have let this bill fail, and thus get more people killed than he ever could have saved with his anti-choice beliefs. Instead, he decided to be, truly, pro-life.
