The Lyrics

From "The Bu'shit Man," my unfinished parody of "The Music Man."
Till I Turn Blue

There are bills on the Hill,
With their authors always whining.
I won't be signing; I'll hold my breath,
Till I turn blue.

Guys like Byrd never die,
And they always are opining.
I won't be signing; I'll hold my breath,
Till I turn blue.

But there's a new clique
Of one-note hardnoses
Who tell me
How to treat fragrant meadows
Of dawn and dew—

Like Love Canal—or pound
Hilltops into rivers with strip-mining.
The sky offers way too much fresh breath
While it's still blue.
While it's still blue.

Yeah, I did this before I started posting to amiright. I just put this and the others on the site without readdressing them. Should have.
