The Lyrics

Note: for the petty here that complain about my commercial jingles, this is #83 out of 2161 parodies! Do the math!!!
They’re stingy, they’re stingy
DEMs promise things and then lie
They’re stingy, they’re stingy
ACA- no compromise

They’re stingy, they’re stingy
Well, this comes as no surprise
They’re stingy, they’re stingy
Obama takes the hardline

[No Keystone Pipeline, etc…]

Everyone knows they’re stingy
Beyond mere penny-pinching…

[Niggardly* cowards unwilling... to negotiate]
*niggardly: stingy, miserly, or cheap. My brother used this in 1978 in Elementary School after getting into a fight with a Black student over a lunch swap. The Black kid refused and my brother called him the N-word. Called to the Principal's Office, my brother lied and said he used the word niggard which means a stingy person. The Principal called my mom to verify and she agreed as our dad had used that word many times before his death in '75. My brother got out of trouble and it still amazes me today all the words kids used back in the 1970s. Another popular one was sickle cell anemia- promoted by Richard Proyor's comic routines. White boys loved to use that in school!
