Government Shutdown

Did you hear what happened in Washington town?
Those neo-con bastards shut our government down.

This was no idle tantrum; it was part of their scheme
To silence the people, and put an end to the dream.

They’re really quite clever, those neo-con jerks;
They had to stop Obamacare ’cause we’d see that it works.

Then people would rise up and say that we must
Have more government programs that help all of us.

They’ll call us all socialists, but whatever they say,
We know folks will die without health care today.

They’re holding us hostage to their evil plans.
They shut down the government and now they demand
That we must negotiate, but we Grannies say NO!
And come next election, they’ve all got to go!

This is still a democracy, if they like it or not.
And we won’t be held hostage to their neo-con plot.

So let’s pull together and give a loud shout,
And vote our own interests, and throw the bums out.
