How Repub (song) … And Small Wins

(to OMC’s “How Bizarre”)

Bigfoot, UFO’s, Chupacabra, truth from a Republican, a great deal promised at some website with no apparent catch but I actually witnessed a Bucco victory tonight, and with irrefutable live real time proof. Colin Moran’s (I love that guy) awful beard crossed the plate along with three others for a rare positive outcome and a well pitched one from Mitch Keller (also a rarity) but seen only out of the corner of my eye as I headphoned a Friday night after a bit of fun in my little studio at work earlier. Then it was a hardwood roll back chair at home to check the action occasionally (action? yeah I know, it’s baseball, action is relative) while said headphoning and editing of something new with the Meme’s on her always bar towel desk spot while I PC putz.

Victories are an elusive almost fantastical thing as a Bucco’s fan. But maybe it’s the corner of my eye that brought it about, this victory, looking directly possibly being the problem. Maybe that’s the best way to go about it in the future. A corner eye. Maybe for a lot of things.

So … as to the headphoning …

Big lie it shotgun rides, McCarthy at the wheel

Headin’ Mar-A-Lago to co-mmiz about steal

A new plan it was hatched then, right after riot’s zeal

After kneel ring kiss the two saw how this should go

Campaign of vote suppression with a spankin’ new cash flow

McCarthy genuflects then says we’ll work on Fili-Joe

How Repub  

How Repub

How Repub

They stay course mis-inform’, more openly than before

First voting then vaccines now, workin’ at death’s door

Of democracy and lives now, Elephant’s they know the score

How to politic both with a loud crazed cultish roar

How Repub

How Repub

How Repub

Ooh, baby (Ooh, baby)
Democracy’s lazy (It’s future now hazy)
Every time I just look down
There’s a new lie to be found (Every time I just look down)
Every time from underground
Lies are bubblin’ up

Ring master he directs, says make Donkeys have regrets

For not buying into Country’s patriotic cultish sect

We’re showing you white way now, yet ya still deflect

The truth of where road’s going to where we’ll intersect

At Ignorance Way and Main Street with a future surely set

You’ll be minority major

Too slow now to react

Where chance was had to save from dark political intellect

And you’ll learn now how to,

Hey,

To genuflect

How Repub

How Repub

How Repub

Ooh, baby (Ooh, baby)
Democracy’s lazy (It’s future now hazy)

Every time I just look down
There’s a new lie to be found (Every time I just look down)
Every time from underground
Lies are bubblin’ up

They’re bubblin’ up

Ooh, baby (Ooh, baby)
Democracy’s lazy (It’s future now hazy)
Every time I just look down
There’s a new lie to be found (Every time I just look down)
Every time from underground
Lies are bubblin’ up

Ooh, baby (Ooh, baby)
Democracy’s lazy (It’s future now hazy)
Every time I look just down (Every time I just look down)
There’s a new lie to be found
Every time from underground
Lies are bubblin’ up

Neo Fascist Man (song – a GOP anthem)

(to Billy Joel’s “Piano Man”)

So I ran into some issues with the PC last night that involved myself and Gaurav of India getting to know each other to the point where I think he and I could have had each other’s back in a bar fight and I was forced to fire up the old dude (backups – gotta have backups) in order to put this together, especially as all my apps and other assorted things are gone now as part of an almost complete reset of the new PC. Thankfully it didn’t include my files as part of said reset, though that was something of a roll of the dice at the time as to whether that would be the case. Seems my Windows had pretty much shit the bed and forced Gaurav and I to grab some broken beer bottles back to back and go on faith that I wouldn’t lose everything.

About 4 hours later …

And all I wanted to do was to just get home and hang with my furry girls over a beer or two or three, watch my Buccos get their asses handed to them by the Reds again and work on this. So much for an anticipated Friday.

But Ol’ PC guy came through and I built. Thanks old friend.

It’s Doomsday clock on an everyday

GOP wear a watch

They check their wrists – for the end of us

Great experiment to now call a loss

They say It’s time has passed can ya follow me

It won’t really be all that hard

There’s a new road to take while the truth we will fake

A dead dream just not in the cards

Oh La-la-la de-de da
La-la de-de da la-la

Sing us a song Neo Fascist man

Sing us a song of lies

Rewrite for us a seen history

Till no longer believe our own eyes

Now the GOP practice a longer game

State and by state they block votes

Or they gerrymander – so to stay in command

As they can’t win with votes honest’s go

They say integrity’s at stake in our system here

Must restore voter confidence

And they’ll disenfranchise with no color the prize

And all because of the Big Lie

Oh La-la-la de-de da
La-la de-de da la-la

Now McCarthy holds true his great leader

Kool Aid drunk while supporting the cries

Of an unhinged one, carny barker and some  

Whose show now attracts nothing but flies

And McConnell says partisan politics

Are the only game Dems wanna play

While hypocrisy drips from his marble mouth

Lockstep lemmings minority sway

Break

Sing us a wrong Neo Fascist man

Sing us a song of lies

Rewrite for us a known history

Till we no longer hear as it cries

GOP gambles Dem dreamers

Whose justifies are like some swiss cheese

Manchin and Kyrsten to any who’ll listen

Are standing just notice them please

They’re determined to center attention

Nonsensical their fantasy fight

To preserve the one thing that is killing the dream

Of every last of us be deemed

Oh La-la-la de-de da
La-la de-de da la-la

Do us all wrong Neo Fascist men

Break with democracy’s ties

Cause we’re all in the mood for autocracy

Till we no longer hear our own cries

Cult Orange Taxi (Song)

This one doesn’t rate with my last I don’t think but it’s still pretty alright. Another parody tune about our present madness, this one to “Big Yellow Taxi”.

Cult Orange Taxi 

He paid no price, and now they still prop him up   

The Johnson’s and Gaetz’ and the rest who drink from golden lie cup

This isn’t how this all should go

Seditionists still caught in the throes

Allegiance to cult

Ignore our democracy

 

Ooooh, bop bop bop

Ooooh, bop bop bop

 

Find words to absolve no matter how dumb they be

Retreat to safe votes on false tech-ni-calities  

No No No

This isn’t how this all should go

Seditionists still caught in the throes

Allegiance to cult

Hit hard the re-visioning

 

Ooooh, bop bop bop

Ooooh, bop bop bop

 

Hey people people we might as well give up the ghost

Of rati-on-al thought in the wind now with a GOP lo-ost  

Plea-ase

This isn’t how this all should go

Seditionists still caught in the throes

Allegiance to cult

Believe only his lies screed

Hey now

Allegiance to cult

A fascism ecstasy

 

Ooooh, bop bop bop

Ooooh, bop bop bop

……..

They claim armed revolt wasn’t what it seemed

They distract lie away from what was really seen

 

This isn’t how this all should go

But seditionists know no low too low

Allegiance to cult

Still wishing autocracy

Hey now now

This isn’t how this all should go

They work as team to block a sane flow

Allegiance to cult

Lies are some strong ammo

Allegiance to cult

Corrupt personality

Hey Hey Hey

Allegiance to cult

Ignoring all truth it seems

 

Ooooh, bop bop bop

Ooooh, bop bop bop

……

We can’t just forgive it

Can’t forgive it

Can’t just go let it move along-ong-ong-ong

 

Can’t just forget it

Can’t just leave it

Can’t let them sing a new lie song

 

We can’t just pass it a-long

Move it along

As lies continue to play

Hey Hey Hey

Can’t let them control

No matter now what they say

 

Nah nah now

Nah nah now

 

Can’t let him get away now

Allegiance to cult

A fascism ecstasy 

 

Nah now now now now now

 

Allegiance to cult

A fascism ecstasy 

Dark Days – They Wish (Song) … Your Beer’ll Just Have To Wait

Just a few weeks ago I got a notification at Facebook of being tagged. It was a tag to a posting of a link to Stevie Wonder’s “I Wish”.  Seems the hearing of that song has always reminded a them of a me and our fond days of inhabiting a place called “Monico’s” in Pittsburgh back in the early 90’s.  A Rock ‘N’ Roll bar I bartended at part time around my radio schedule at WDVE back then. I responded back that I could still see myself playing the “air horns”, elbows up and dancing back and forth behind the bar, as if in choreographed unison with some unseen other members of the horn section, ignoring all drink orders until the song and my horns and imaginary bandmates were done.

It got me to thinking though. Could I maybe sing along with this one with some new lyrics as I’ve done quite a few times in the last couple of years deservedly skewering Great Leader/former great leader, the orange one, with some other tunes? Maybe a little something about our current state of surreal affairs? 

Yeah, I think I could. 

“What? You want a beer? Sorry, you’re just going to have to wait … hell, just milk it will ya? … I don’t give a fuck about your warm backwash … just wait … can’t ya see I’m air hornin’ and dancin’ and singin’ about some bat shit insanity?”

Dark Days (they wish)

Looking back on lost years and an orange headed lyin’ boy

Whose one and only con-cern was power and just how earn from ploy

We watched and listened sadly, the starkness of the thing

That had support too many, discipled GOP

Truth went out the window, propaganda became the truth de jour

Echoed many sides now, podiums to pundits even went on tour

The press tried too late stem tide, point out all the lies

But they opened up that window, just tryin’ now save hides

They were dark days … you’d … think we’d want no more

Some truly sad … days … attack norms at the core 

But some still want … those … days to darken doors

Now hold se-di-tious dreams, yeah, they hold a torch 

They hold a torch

The time came to be counted, a real count not a one that aimed at steal

Enough of us did stand up, a threat was posed and seen saw to be real 

But even then some hundred plus signed on to a deal 

To stand with former power mad with fraud as the new spiel

That led to insurrection, encouraged violence for a new rule

With help also from inside who even took some to tour of new school

Useful idi-ots follow dumb as useful tools

The Gaetz, Hawley’s, McCarthy’s fools who know the fools

They were dark days … you’d … think they’d want no more

Some truly sad … days … attack norms at the core 

But some still want … those … days to darken doors

Now hold se-di-tions dreams, yeah they hold a torch 

They hold a torch
