The Lyrics

This 1942 WW2 song could be sung in 2022 by Ukraine's military. But it also can be modified as below to apply to current economic and political mistakes by our national leaders and the effects on citizens.
Down went the oil wells, Joe Biden sealed their fate
Down went the gushers, for they the Greenies hate
Up jumped the solar farms, each windmill acres took
And spanned the ocean shelf so that bathers cannot look, shouting

Raise the sword, cut CO2 emission
Phase out Ford's big rrucks and competition
Pray aboard EV for no ignition
Of its battery

Eraise the Lord, and cling to your position
Can't afford EV in mint condition
Can't afford my gas and ammunition
For the creeps you see

The late El Rushbo said it
Ya gotta give him credit
For a sonofagun of a pundit was he, shouting

One accord, Left's on a righteous mission
Crazed their word, no CO2 they're wishin'
Not aboard, the Right must show contrition
For the rising seas (or burning trees)

Praise the Lord, don[t tax our ammunition
Praise the Lord and pass recall petitions
Praise the Lord and vote R in elections
And we'll all stay free

EV means Electric Vehicle, CO2 means Carbon Dioxide but includes methane here.

Barry, old friend, I've missed you. It's obvious you haven't lost anything off your fastball! Keep 'em coming. And our compliments to your lovely wife!

Sorry I didn't see this sooner. So appropriate. Might inspire me to come around here more.
