Vow to Remember

 

Vow to remember this coming November
The healthcare vote, and those who followed.
Vow to remember this coming November
When deals were made and Reps were yellow.
Vow to remember this coming November.
Vote out the Congress whose brains were fallow
Vow to remember, and if you remember,
Then follow.

Vow to remember each Rep on a bender
Got bribes galore without a bellow.
Vow to remember each Rep was a vendor
Of votes; with spines made up of Jell-o .
Vow to remember, and return to sender
Those Reps and that cesspool in which they wallow.
Vow to remember, and come this November,
Then follow.

Vote in November and let us remember,
A country free and proud and mellow.
Vote in November and always remember,
That pile of crap we had to swallow.
Vote in November and let us dismember
The Reps who betrayed us, and sold us hollow.
Vote in November–our hearts should remember
And follow.

UPDATE: Per the comments, this song of course is a take-off from “Try To Remember” from the longest-running musical ever, The Fantasticks.

      I’m with you on that, Tom! I wonder how many people “get” that it was written to the tune of “Try To Remember” which was made famous by uh… I don’t remember. Sigh…

      Excellent work, Stoutcat! Hey Dave (Carroll)… are you in need of a lyricist?
