The Lyrics

We’ve been sold a million lines
How all our cares will go away
Money flows a little tighter
Whittle down our take home pay
But if it frosts ten million voters
And erodes ten million smiles
We’ll be worse than when we started
Dead or shuttered all the while

Well it’s smoke and lots of mirrors
In a shallow shifty way
And we never will embrace
On any plan that taxes pay
But then all your crones are telling you
“Be a healthcare star!”
Looks like most the folks are satisfied
It’s going well so far…

Then he said “You lie!”?
Oh he yelled, “You lie!”!
Shame, out of line, but kinda funny
What’s with S.C. guys?

Well we’ve read a thousand pages
In a catatonic daze
And we get a thousand answers
In the way you turn a phrase
We’ll get everything we need
To fix our bodies, that’s the goal
Taxes grow a little bigger
But you don’t want that part told

We’ve been told a million times
We’re the un-A-mer-i-can way
So you have to keep on trying
Just to keep the wolves at bay
But if they cross a southern border
And they have ex-cess-ive bile
Then you won’t pay for their healthcare
Won’t pay for their healthcare?

Then he said “You lie!”?
Come on!
Oh he shouts, “You lie!”!
Think he should have mimed it honey
Wilson won’t survive

Shake up!

Then he shouts “You lie!”?
Did you really lie?
Oh, take you all our lives and money?
When we get sick or die?

Do you think you have a better way?
No, we think we’ve just gotten two steps closer to our grave!

Keep us all alive
Come on!
Keep us all alive
Don’t take more lives or take more money
Keep us all alive

Keep us all alive
Come on!
Best not be a lie
Hope death panel keeps us all alive

Then he said “You lie!”
Come on, come on!
Yes he said “You lie!”
Pol-i-tic-al crime, they’ll shun ‘im
To keep dem satisfied

Keep us all alive
Reap a grim demise?
All you people: keep us all alive
Take you all our livees, more money, honey
Hope we survive...

Love it. All we needed to hear next was "Gumdrops are gonna fall from the sky!" Itis funny but if the child at the end of the story who yelled out "The Emperor Has No Clothes!" had said that today, they'd put him on Ritalin and send him to a re-education camp. :-D

Sorry, typo on my name because I tend to type too fast and carelessly. Sometimes I tend to type short comments as well. I also hope Tommy Turtle reads takes a look at this parody. :)

Christie Marie M: No need to apologize, typos can be funny sometimes. ;-D Yes, where is that Turtle? Could be migrating to warmer waters. ;-)
