The Lyrics

The vastness of the universe is nothing compared the the massive size and reach of the American government. Our last best hope was Ron Paul.
Who can fix the fat folks, legislate their food
Tell the fast food restaurants what they can and cannot do
The government, oh the government can
The government can ‘cause it loves us ten times more than even Jesus Christ could

Who can make the light bulbs, look like ice cream cones
"Clap Off" Edison, and get him out of all our homes
The government, the government can
The government can ‘cause the Algore made a film that scared the shit out of fools

The government hates, anyone who makes, millions through their own decisions
They'll take care of all our wishes, once they pass all their revisions

Oh, who can save tomorrow, with their crazy schemes
Banish all our sorrow, and direct our self esteem
The government, the government can
The government can, ‘cause their writing I.O.U.'s to our great-grandchildrens kids

The government tape, red as blood that's caked, on Carrie's prom dress and her tresses
They'll choose who's too big to fail, pick the winners and the misses

Oh, who will give us money, if we drive their car
Plug it in a socket, just don’t plan on going far
The government, the government can
The government can 'cause it takes from those who work and gives it to the lazy losers
Pacing isn't spot on, but I'm sure it'll pass government muster

Funny, but if Paul's our last best hope, we're more doomed than I imagined.

Thanks for v/c. My take on Ron Paul is the country is so economically sick with debt and government overreach, that we need the strong, nasty tasting medicine he's prescribing. Granted, the majority would probably spit it out.
