Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

Your talk was shrewd and charming
Like you were hawking a new hot stock
Your chat, intriguingly slick with code so sly
Your jargon was poppycock
You had no mind to be clearer
As you sought to fool the flock

And all the churls deemed
That you'd help their party
You'd help their party, but...

You're so vague
Your logic links are wrong and I doubt you
You're so vague (You're so vague)
I fret and think it's wrong when you shout, too
No clue, no clue

Your scams wreaked fed'ral tears and woe
Your slimy skills quite extreme
Though you said that you'd make all the laws be fair
The statutes were clever schemes
And you gave bouquets and bling to thugs
And none were left for me

You dashed my dreams
You sure bowed to the lobbies
Bowed to the lobbies, and...

You're so vague
You always slink around with your blog views
You're so vague (You're so vague)
Our debts are stinkin' mountains of dog doo
Gross poo, gross poo, gross poo


I snapped and screamed
When the crowds thought you lofty
Crowds thought you lofty, 'cause...

You're so vague
You fondly wink at louts that announce you
You're so vague (You're so vague)
I'll bet the drinkin' crowd would renounce you
So true, so true

Well I heard you hooked up with fair promoters
To pour forth facts you had spun
Then you skewed your weird text just to snow the voters
To screen ignoble cheap tricks you had done
Well you dare to mislead all mankind
And when we're not sure if...

We understand why
You get sly with the vote trends
Sly with the vote trends, 'cause...

You're so vague
You oddly blink at throngs when they doubt you
You're so vague (So vague)
I'll bet you think it's wrong when the crowds boo
No clue, no clue, no clue

You're so vague
You proudly slink around where the sows poop
You're so vague
I'll bet you slink around in the fowls' coop
You're so vague

Without naming names, this could apply to any number of candidates. Nicely matched syllables and rhymes.

This deserved a five... for some reason...

A song parody about vagueness that, in and of itself, is the epitome of vagueness .. How shall I score this -- three fives or not three fives ......

I like the extra layer of vagueness by having a vague parody about vagueness. This could apply to all pols and most of the people in the news business. Well done.

Also sounds like any UK politician. I thought it was a prerequisite.

PS, why is this site getting so hateful and snide? It used to be fun.

At first, I thought this said vogue instead of vague! Wouldn't that have been something.
