Song Parody: Sequester (March 5, 2013)

The sequester is in play now, so here's a song parody all about it, "Sequester," to the tune of the old Cheap Trick classic, "Surrender"...

Boehner told me, yes he told me, “We must cut the debt”
Bernanke told me, “Stay away, a stall’s about all you’ll get”
Well I had thought Republicans were crazy ‘bout defense
Guess not enough to force some common sense

Boehner’s not right, Cantor’s not right
They both seem a little weird
Sequester, sequester, the sane folks have gone away, ay, aaaaaaay

Krugman says that Keynes is right, you spend when times are worse
Austerity adds to your pain, the Brits’ down-spiraling curse
The GOP just cannot see that Europe’s on their plan
And once caused the “lost decade” in Japan

Boehner’s not right, Cantor’s not right
They both seem a little weird
Sequester, sequester, the sane folks have gone away, ay, aaaaaaay

Whatever happened to all good reason; losers on the Hill
Now Obama’s stopped the blinking, they can’t pass a bill
Now Gallup shows Americans prefer Obama’s way
But gerrymandered districts have more sway

Boehner’s not right, Cantor’s not right
They both seem a little weird
Sequester, sequester, the sane folks have gone away, ay, aaaaaaay

Awaaaaaaay.
Awaaaaaaay.

Sequester, sequester, the sane folks have gone away
(Boehner’s not right, Cantor’s not right)
Sequester, sequester, the sane folks have gone away
(Boehner’s not right, Cantor’s not right)
Sequester, sequester the sane folks have gone away
(Boehner’s not right, Cantor's not right)
Sequester, sequester, the sane folks have gone away
(Boehner’s not right, Cantor’s not right)
(Barry's alright, Harry's alright, Nancy's alright, Lew's alright)
Surrender, surrender, but don't give yourself away.
(We’re all alright, we’re all alright, we’re all alright, we’re all alright!!!)
Surrender, surrender, but don't give yourself away.
(Boehner’s not right, Cantor’s not right)
{Fade...}
