The Lyrics

I wrote this about two years ago to contribute to Max DeGroot's growing Christmas song collection...but he felt it really wasn't "topical" enough at the time. Well, with the "fiscal cliff" looming and both sides pretty much refusing to even LISTEN to the other side, I'd say it's MORE than topical now! Share and Enjoy!
Here we come a-wa-ffl-ing
Up on Capitol Hill
Here we come a-squan-d'ring
Our time not passing bills

You send us to D.C.
And we waste time happily
And we send you the bill you must pay ev'ry year
And we send you the bill ev'ry year

Republicans and Democrats
Don't get along you see
Can't get a thing done 'cause we
Agree to disagree

So we argue so strong
Filibuster all night long
Not conceding a point after ours is made clear
Then decide all oth'r points ain't clear

It doesn't matter which side holds
The White House at the time
He can't sign any bills when
We stop them down our line

And we have so much fun
While we're getting nothing done
We get women and take private jets there to here
And we spend all your taxes each year

Abe said a house divided 'gainst
Itself, it cannot stand
But Congress proves him wrong, for
This country's in our hands

You send us to D.C.
And we waste time happily
And we send you the bill you must pay ev'ry year
And we send you the bill ev'ry year

Nothing out of tune here - should be the congressional theme song for both sides....I bet they would not agree to that - unanimously

A politician's anthem if ever I heard one - not that you'd ever get them to sing it, of course... ;^) Could equally apply to our lot here in the UK - I'm voting a 555 for this one.

Here we come a-hasseling among the courts so left. Here we come a-hasseling our souls are so bereft. Love and joy denied to you; and for you more hassle, too. May we depress you and bring you a soul-less New Year. No God mentions in this New Year

Q. How do you get a conservative republican to listen to you? A.make sound like Dr. Ford, but don't expect anything productive to come of it.

DKTOS, but a good assessment of the political gridlock in DC. You sure brought a good share of Right-Wing nutcakes out with this one, so I rate this a "5" in that even though there is no place in the voting area to mark it.
