The Lyrics

While I realize that another parody of this title to this OS has been submitted, I'd written nearly all of this before I looked. I think you will find it's a little bit different...
You fill in your census
Your religion is "Jedi"
Nationality: "Martian"
Place of birth: "Mars"
In your house there's no people
But one extra-terrestrial
You fill in your census
With stuff from the stars

And for your occupation
Why did you say "Messiah"
Are you some kind of saviour?
Will you die and then rise?
And your age is three thousand
You have eighty-one children
You write all this bollocks
Then claim it's not lies

(Instrumental while filing in the rest)

...when they read this stuff from you
White coats will come for you
They'll think you're insane

You fill in your census
Being not wholly honest
Like whole mountains of bullshit
Saying something like this:
"I have six Maseratis
Half a gross of young aunties"
You fill in your census
You're taking the piss

The bureaucrats will enter the information without blinking an eye and disgorge the statistics with nary a thought to its accuracy. I recall entering that I speak Spanish at home. So I've added to the statistics of Spanish-speakers in the US Census. I do have a friend from Brazil who calls me when he is in KC. He speaks Spanish as a third language, my Portuguese is virtually non-existent, so we speak Spanish on the phone. I guess that counts. Or did.

Phil - Fine parody as usual. In the US, the ten-year census is used to apportion members of the House of Representatives and consequentially each state's Electoral Votes. President Obama intended to take direct control of the census from the Census Bureau of the Commerce Department. He also planned to employ the discredited organization ACORN in the operation...the same group that committed massive vote fraud on his behalf during the 2008 election. Oh well, as Disraeli said...there are three kinds of falsehoods - lies, damned lies, and statistics! ;D

At the risk of getting political... OMR: how much of the evidence discrediting the "discredited organization ACORN" has been discredited in its turn? Maybe I watch too much Rachel Maddow on this side of the pond, and not enough Fox to get a fair and balanced picture, but it seems to me that there has been a really rather despicable witch-hunt against ACORN from people with a political motive.

I am aware of several serious allegations made against ACORN that have been shown to have been entirely spurious and that resulted in the organization losing its funding in a manner that was subsequently described as unconstitutional.

McCain made the claim that ACORN committed "massive vote fraud", yet that claim was itself called "breathtakingly inaccurate". If Disraeli had lived today, he'd probably have added a fourth falsehood: political campaign assertions.
