The Lyrics

FULL DISCLOSURE: I do watch the State of the Union. Hear the original song on YouTube.
Workin' hard, day after day
Got a wife, got some buddies
Never wealthy but I'm doin' o.k.
Just a man with a plan to get by

And after work I need to relax
It's time to watch television
I grab a beer and a couple of snacks
But oh no, there's no show, and here's why

It's the State of the Union
Well now isn't this great
Now I won't get to see "The Biggest Loser"
So I quick change the channel 'cause I just can't relate
And I'll watch anything but the State of the Union

Glad I've got cable TV
Lots of shows, lots of channels
Hope something's on that I would like to see
With some T and some A, I can eye

But the State of the Union
Playing on channel 8
Means I won't get to stare at "Killer Women"
And I know that I'd rather watch a show about bait
Way before I'll start watching the State of the Union

Searching through all of the shows
Gimme great big explosions
Wanna see two boxers go toe to toe
Not some guy with a tie speechify

It's the State of the Union
And I'm telling you straight
You'll have more chuckles watching "Honey Boo Boo"
And as long as there's Michelob the country is great
And I don't need a speech on the state of the union

The State of the Union

Hook up the Capitol lights to "The Clapper". When the democrats applaud the lies and phony promises, all the lights will go out. I'd tune in to watch that.
