Happy Same Old Year To You



They dropped the ball again last night
as the whole world stood and cheered,
but I didn't celebrate too much
cause they've dropped the ball all year,

The well-to-do ate cavier,
thanks to tax cuts they'll all share...
while the E.R.'s in each town were full
of folks without health care.

The G.O.P. quite blatantly
made up lies about the bill...
to gain more seats of power,
with no worries for those ill.

Chorus-

It's no new year for so many,
it'll be more of the same,
for those who don't have any,
because of what the old year claimed,
the gas prices keep creeping up
just like expenses everywhere,
so excuse me if I toot no horns,
for this new year...I don't care

The troops are still at war ...their status
left on the back burner,
while Palin kills moose on T.V.
guess their problems don't concern her.

There's been a run of boxes
of refridgerator size,
to house those now left homeless
cause their jobs were compromised.

Our newly elected have been directed
to stalemate any change,
in a time when change is needed,
yet nobody finds that strange.

Chorus-

It's no new year for so many,
it'll be just more of the same,
for all those who don't have any,
because of what the old year claimed,
and the gas prices keep creeping up
just like prices everywhere,
so excuse me if I toot no horns,
for this new year...I don't care

It should be a crime if your company
goes overseas to steal,
good jobs from all Americans,
here's a plan that I'll reveal.

If you turn you back on the U.S.A.
for slave labor found dirt cheap,
we should not buy anything you make,
all your imports you can keep.

"We the people" should make lists of
all of those who left our land,
to get rich on foriegn workers,
then against them we should stand.

Spending nothing on their products,
they'd be coming home quite soon,
then maybe next year at this time,
I'll toot a happier tune.

Chorus-

Because it's no new year for many,
it'll be more of the same,
for those who don't have any,
because of what the old year claimed,
the gas prices keep creeping up
just like prices everywhere,
so excuse me if I toot no horns,
for this new year...I don't care

The ones that want NO CHANGE,

are the ones who are deranged!

I'm tired of all the fluff!

the fluff just ain't enough!

They rich are such twits,

And they could give two $#its,

About truth and compassion.

They sport the latest fashion.

They eat the best of food.

If you're concerned, you're rude.

They assault with impunity.

They put us in our gated community.

They have theirs,

And they have their airs.

The poor are lazy and in the way.

And here is what they live and say:

"I have mine I don't care about the poor.

I studied hard at school,

to judge the fools.

It's capitalism! It's the best.

Screw everybody, while I feather my nest.

If you want some real healthcare,

You'd better sign up for WEALTHCARE.

The real America has bombs to make!

We have communists to kill and cakes to bake!

The poor waited long for Mr. Obama.

But we can contain him and your mama!

And now of course, it's Super Bowl time.

Look other way while we commit our crime.

And while most of the world lives in darkness and sadness,

We'll get ready for March Madness.

It's far more important to watch basketball,

As democracy continues to fall.

We'll allow some kids to play some ball,

But we are going to screw most of y'all!

Duke, UNC, Kentucky, and UCONN,

Keep watching TV while we con,

You and all the world with advertising,

While we do more of our disenfranchising.

Healthcare without insurance,

Is dangerous without assurance,

That we crooks will have our cut,

While we nail you and screw your butt.

If there is going to be communism,

We want it through capitalism!

It's only right that the higher one percent,

Will make every dollar and track every dollar spent.

And while your sick @$$ is lying on a gurney,

Big business will profit, and so will my attorney.

But I have a message for the poorest,

Of this you can be surest,

We don't give a damn about you!

And soon we'll corral you in a zoo.

This America, Land of the Free,

Is only the Land of ME!

Be born to the right father and mother,

Seek money and power like no other,

Salute the flag, bumper-sticker your car,

And you are sure to go pretty far.

If ever in doubt, and the view is hazy.

Just keep shouting, "The poor are lazy!"

For this is the Land of Opportunity!

And we will assail everyone with impunity.

We will kill your children with your hope.

Call for change, we'll wash your mouth with soap.

We will kill your children every year,

And fill your lives with dread and fear!

There are no ifs, ands, or buts,

We rich hate your stinking guts!

We rich want the ocean shore!

We want the mountain tops and so much more!

We don't give a flip what you have to say.

You damn poor are in OUR WAY!"
