Fat Cat’s Song

Lyrics by: Nancy Goedert
Gaggle: Detroit
Tune: Roll Out the Barrel

(1st & 5th verses are the same tuneverses 3, 4 and 6 are the same tune as verse 2)

Roll Out the Money
We’ve got elections to buy
It’s the best investment
No other returns are so high.
We’ll get our paybacks
about a million to one.
Yes we need to pay for the campaigns
So the world is ours to run.

We can scare the folks to fund our wars.
Pollute the air and water as we please.
We get tax breaks for promised jobs
Just don’t say that they’re overseas.

We lure votes with ads so full of lies
Thinking’s hard and folks just love their ease
They buy half truths – that’s no surprise
Then watch shows called reality.

We own the media and dumb them down,
Fill their brains with sports and crimes & clowns.
They’ll watch the news and think they know
What’s going on; but its just a show.

Roll the pork barrel
Cut schools and health care, let’s do.
Cut Social Security
Folks can work all their lives through.
We’ll get more tax breaks
Put all the burden on them
They won’t need retirement income
Cause they’ll drop dead before then.

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha
Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho
Hee Haw Hee Haw Hee Haw Hee Haw
Ha Ha Ha Ha Ho Ho Ho Ho
