The Lyrics


The idea for this song came to me in a bad dream.
What's really scary is that this scenario might actually come to pass...
Hey kids, shake the noose and tether
The spotlight's hitting someone who's opposed to changin' weather
He'll thrill the rabid fans in sight, so slick his sound
You're gonna hear election newsies howlin' all around

Hey, candidate Donnie, you're too mean to sweat
Ooh, but you're so faked out
B-B-B-B-B-B-B-Bernie and the Left
Oh, and there's fear for the plunder-ful
Oh, Bernie, he could steal your green

He's got progressive roots, that snow-haired coot
His co-contender is a bag of beans, oh-ho-oh!
B-B-B-Bernie and the Left!

Hey kids, shrug the mood of hate-ness
Maybe you're mindless, but Bernie wakes the wageless
They might all thrive if he shakes and sells the throngs
Scaring frightened barons out of their suites
And smiting Rights with his prong

Oh, candidate Donnie now you seem to fret
Oh, but you're still faked out
B-B-B-B-B-B-B-Bernie and the Left
Oh, and there's jeers for the blunder-ful
Oh, Bernie, he's a zeal machine

He's got the Left confused, some dough accrued
You know he's dreaded by the saggin' queen, oh-ho-ho!
B-B-B-Bernie and the Left!

Oh, candidate Donnie, now you really sweat
Oh, and you're so aced out
B-B-B-B-B-B-B-Bernie and the Left
Oh, and there's cheers as the Trumper's gulled
By Bernie with his dealing schemes

He's brought election blues to those who lose
You know he's shredded all the braggarts' dreams, oh-ho-oh!
B-B-B-Bernie and the Left!

Bernie, Bernie and the Left!
Bernie, Bernie, Bernie, Bernie and the Left!

Yes, this is a scary scenario, but the scenarios of the "saggin' queen" and the dreaming "braggart" are almost just as scary! Excellent title and parody!

Quality over quantity makes a rare and welcome appearance today. "Progressive roots, snow haired coot" is as good a description of Sanders as I have seen. How anyone could have rated this less than 555, I don't understand. Captures the threat he poses to Trump and to Clinton. One of those cases in which a parodist improves upon the original song, which I don't think I ever did figure out. When I see your name on the list, that is the first song I read that day.

Always enjoy the political parodies, especially in an election year and it is just starting. Brilliant wordsmithing in this one.

I'm a little concerned, Leough, about Bernie's age. I mean Bernie is so old he actually proof read many of Karl Marx's writings; He's so old he bummed spare change off of Friedrich Engels; He's so old that when Mohammed beheaded the Jewish men in Medina he pointed to Bernie and said, "Dont worry about that old fart"; He's so old he drew his first unemployment check after being laid off from his job as a Hebrew slave; He's so old, the tool they circumsized him with was made from a flint stone; And speaking of which, he's so old, that when he lived in Bedrock, he was fired from the Slate Rock and Gravel Company for trying to unionize the dinosaurs. That's how old Bernie is!!

CML - I think it's a shame Sanders is as old as he is (and would make his VP pick interesting if he were to get the nomination), but then I think: the first president I remember is Jimmy Carter.. he's not just still alive, but he's making more sense now than he did when he was president :-)

"Gun-wielding Libertarian Nutcase". As good a description as I have ever been blessed with.
