The Lyrics

Dedicated to Snoop Dogg.
First you say you'll sign,
But then you don't--
And then you pout and whine,
And then you gloat!
The government's shut down
TF are you gonna do?

Mexico will pay,
But they say no!
You say you'll bring in jobs,
But now not so!
The government's shut down,
TF are you gonna do?

Concrete wall or steel slat fence,
Call it "peaches" makes no sense,
As I'm looking at Mike Pence:
Kinda nervous!

Mueller probe is closing in,
I don't see how you can win,
What BS on Fox and Friends
Will you serve us?

Did you read that book,
"Art of the Deal"?--
It's time to cut and run
Come on, get real!
The government's shut down,
TF are you gonna do?

You said, "Look here, Nancy, Chuck,
I'd be proud to see the buck
Stop right here so you can suck
My left testy!"

Madam Speaker then replied,
"Without question I'd take pride,
If it first is batter-fried
Hot and zesty!"

So now we're at impasse
After three weeks--
While polls are spanking you
On both your cheeks!
The government's shut down,
TF are you gonna do?

I'm furloughed, you pain in the ass and neck!
I'm on my way to cash my unemployment check!
Why did I vote for you?
It's you I'm gonna sue!

Please provide a Gantt chart of the Mueller stall. What is left to do and when will it be done?

What is left to do is what is right to do. It will be done when it is done. And what in the Fruity Pebbles is a Gantt chart?
