The Lyrics

I've wanted to do a parody about all the strife in Wisconsin for quite some time. And then I thought, what would the Ramones do?
Used to get paid, had some holidays
Sunday’s fishing in a lake
Had my little green car
My little green yard
Was working real hard, those days

That’s gone away like the snow in May
Now I’m workin’ two a days
Now I'm called a libtard
My faith has been jarred
Been beaten back hard these days

The GOP took my union from me
They took it from me
Away from me

The GOP took my union from me
They socked it to me
Socked it to me

Now I’ve been told
That I’m lazy as sin
I’m no one in need
I’m glowin’ with greed

I’ve been told
That I’m nobody’s friend
A budget impede
A nuisance of need

Lemme lemme lemme
Tell establishment
Big fat cats
All you represent

Lemme lemme lemme
Give the evil eye
Cos’ I’ve been ripped
By corporate guy

Yeah, yeah, yeah

The votes, they say, brought a needed change
Now more voters are estranged
Not collectively there
It’s really not fair
Come sit in my chair, I say

Now is the day of the state decay
Public sector better way
Seems the governor there
He really don't care
Has arrogant flair, I’d say

The GOP took my union from me
They gave it the squeeze
Gave it the squeeze

The GOP took my union from me
Such lovely world
They took my union from me
More stuff to get angry about can be found at The Blogging Baker.

Not into the politics of it, either way...but your parody's good

Thanks, AFW. I'm normally not into stuff like this either, and I try to keep the political views on my blog and off of AIR. But the polarization in this story really got to me, and the Ramones seemed like the perfect vehicle for my POV.
Guess I needed to vent :-)
