The Lyrics

I've intentionally held off on writing any parodies about the 2010 midterm election results for eight days...a hopefully dispassonate distance. I am struck by the President claiming it's just a failure to communicate and in no way a repudiation of his policies. But even more amazing is Nancy Pelosi trumpeting the results as a "victory"! I write this parody from her viewpoint...typing with my left hand only. ;D


This old House had lots of power, this old House had lots of heft.
This old House with my directon - shoved this country to the left.
This old House gave all you people - stimulus and new health care.
This old House pushed O.'s agenda - with me in the Speaker's chair!

Ain't a'gonna rule this House much longer - ain't a'gonna be the boss no more,
'Cause the G.O.P. has come back - and they've pushed out out the door.
Ain't a'gonna be the Madame Speaker - passing every O. priority.
Ain't a'gonna run this House much longer - 'cause we're now in the minority.


This old House had lots of chutzpah. This old House had lots of nerve.
We dismissed your thoughts and feeling, and sped up our leftward swerve.
We ignored your opposition - "Astroturf" was our smug call -
And we shouted down your voices - at each union-packed Town Hall.

Ain't a'gonna lead this House much longer - ain't a'gonna call its ev'ry move.
Now we Dems are in the shadows - and John Boehner's found his groove.
Wish the House were much more like the Senate - they still have the party votes they need,
And I never thought that I would say it - but I am jealous of Harry Reid.


It was on November Second - we lost more than sixty seats,
And no matter how we spin it - it's among our worst defeats.
But we carry on as if we - gave the right a major route,
And we're loudly celebrating - the Blue Dogs who got kicked out!

Ain't a'gonna beat this House much longer - ain't a'gonna bully file and rank.
Alan Grayson's been defeated - it's just me and Barney Frank.
Where my party used to have an army - now there is a lot of empty space.
Wish that I could frown instead of smiling - but you know I can not move my face!


This new House is not in power - 'til the start of the new year,
And in this last final meeting - we won't budge so have no fear.
We will finish O.'s agenda - in this session of Lame Duck,
For although you clods have spoken - you know we don't give a f***!

I'm not gonna give them one concession! They're not get a moment's rest,
'Cause the voters all are stupid - only government knows best.
In two years I'm coming back as Speaker! It'll be a day you schmucks will rue!
For Obama will be on the ballot - all the 'oh-eight voters will come through!
(ACORN - S.E.I.U.!)











The final days of 2010 should be most interesting! ;D

Like the line about her immobile face. And the "dont give a "fork" pretty much sums up the arrogant attitude of politicians everywhere in regard to public opinion.

OMR, you have the satirist's touch, whereas I generally have the subtlety of a sledgehammer.
