The Lyrics

What is it about even-number years lately that make then SUUUUUUUUUCK?! At this rate, we really should call the next leap year "2023.5" just to break the streak! Ah, well. As I've done since 2016, here's a "JibJab"-esque recap. If you DKTOS, it's right here; it IS a bit of an obscure Police song, relatively. Share and Enjoy! (Oh, and to try to prevent bots from giving me 13 1s right off the bat, I'll no longer spell out the names of the 45 US Prez or the current "Russian Prez". We'll see if that helps...)
One more even-numbered year has ended
P**** tried to take the Ukraine
Zelinskyy's fighting back to tunes by Twisted Sister
It's giving Vlady lots of pain

Tax returns, the Mar-a-Lago raid and House committees
But still T**** says he'll run for President
Most of the GOP, they keep their distance
The "red wave" didn't come; their patience spent

(In) twenty twenty-two
Oz and Walker didn't win
Meanwhile Biden gets COVID...
...and again

Meta, NFTs and "crypto" tank big
The "Arab Spring" finally hits Iran
Elon buys Twitter, doesn't, does and then wrecks it
Monkey pox and storm Ian

The Artemis goes round the moon; DART slams a rock; the Webb looks deep
While Tonga blows its ash up into space
And overturning Roe v Wade and Joe fist-bumping a prince
Is like a Will Smith slap in the face

(In) twenty twenty-two
Biden falls off a bike
"Cocaine orgies" take place(?)

MIKAIL GORBACHEV: About TIME you showed up!
ELIZABETH II: I was only a week behind YOU, "tovarich"!

MEAT LOAF: I now see paradise by the dashboard light!
COOLIO: Best be a gangsta's paradise, my man!

LORETTA LYNN: Thanks for continuing my legacy
NAOMI JUDD: Well, Ashley didn't help, believe me!

OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN: I really regret that "Sharknado" role.
GILBERT GOTTFRIED: Hey! I was in THREE of them! How you think *I* feel?!?

SIDNEY POITIER: First black to win an acting Oscar, baby!
WILLIAM HURT: You deserved to be in our club, Sid!
ANGELA LANSBURY: I won an "honorary" one...
HURT/POITIER: Aw, how cute...

RAY LIOTTA: What happened to your magic to keep you alive?
ROBERT COLTRANE: YOU'RE the one who was a baseball ghost!

Another bloody year has ended
Mass shootings happen ev'ry day
But, with the House gone "red", gun control in a no-go
They play "Wordle" while AR-15s slay

(We) whine about black mermaids, big Powerballs and "Commanders"
We don't see burnt-down forests for the trees
We obsess about Depp/Heard, Tom Brady and "White Lotus"
We don't notice the nation's Christmas freeze!

Twenty twenty-two
Was as mad as mad can be
Will we even make it through
Year twenty...

Twenty twenty-three
Twenty twenty-three
Twenty twenty-three
Twenty twenty-three

Wow, you really made a zinger with this one! And you mentioned a few items I didn't know, like ONJ being in an awful 'Sharknado' film (what a steep fall from grace THAT is! Then again, all her movies suck.), and Coolio dying too? You could've mentioned that Gilbert Gottfried was the voice of the Aflac insurance duck on TV. And you mentioned so many 2022 events so well. Actually, I grew up with the Police and I can tell you that this song is NOT obscure. It charted into the Top 20 during the winter of 1983 - 84 under the name 'Synchronicity II'. And ironically enough, when I saw Sting AND Peter Gabriel play a show in 2016 as a DUO (think male duo acts like Hall and Oates or Righteous Brothers or Tears For Fears, etc.) - they played Sting solo hits, Peter Gabriel hits and Police hits TOGETHER. And BION they together played 'Synchronicity I' followed by 'Synchronicity II'. Cheers!
