The Lyrics

Everyone in the U.S.A. wants a piece of the federal pie-a-la-mode. It's comforting to know that all of those in charge of the coming handouts are trustworthy, law-abiding and conflict-free. See the OS for Cole Porter's original lyrics.
D.C.'s changed, and we cannot rewind the clock.
Would our forefathers get a shock,
Were they stranded on K-street's block;
Be dismayed if that bloc they should try to stem.
'Stead of standing on K-street's bloc,
K-street's bloc would stand on them.

With gold and praise, the pimps* are flocking,
Cause hooked on Obama's talking
(Wolf in sheep's clothes). Many bring woes!

Good presidents who once new better men,
Now only choose unvetted men
Who disclose ... when they're exposed!

The churlish and cads hold sway
And SHOULD's bad today
And flacks write today of raised rights today;
And prose lies today that are outsized today
Are more than peccadillos.

So though we've got a Great Entrancer,
I know that I've found the answer
When he'll propose: many oppose!
* By pimp, I mean the political variety of intermediary. I'm at bjmitchel@att.net for feedback.
