We the People Have Awakened! Ray Stevens' New Song & Lyrics

Growing up, Ray Stevens was one of my all-time favorite singers. His songs, Like Ahab the Arab and Gitarzan and Everything is Beautiful are all memorable classics. I had not heard from him for awhile. He's a comic genius.
.
I have to give a hat tip to Darla from ResistNet.com who sent me a link to the YouTube music video below. The song expresses exactly the sentiments of the majority of Americans toward ObamaCare, the government-run healthcare grab being foisted on US this week by the Senate. Another hat tip to FortHardKnox.com where I found the lyrics of this most meaningful and truth-filled anthem.




We the People
by Ray Stevens
.
It’s gonna be a big heart breaker,
Grandma needs a new pace maker,
And the doctor says, “I realize she’s ill,
But there’s talk of legislation, on all our medication,
and maybe all we can do is put her on a pain pill.”

Whoa, me! Hey, Congress!

You vote Obamacare,
We’re gonna vote you outta there!
We the People have awakened to your tricks.
You vote to let this pass,
You’ll be out on your ____!
‘Cause we the people have awakened…

And to put it in words you might understand, if you had the common sense that God gave a billy goat, you’d no doubt noticed that your constituents, the electorate – that’s us, voters – are onto your
· pork-barrel-
· special-interest-
· tax-and-spend-
scam.

Or, to put it more succinctly, “Heh, heh, heh, Thwwwwwwwwp!”


We’ve heard from Hannity, Beck, and Limbaugh,
What you’ve got in mind for Grandma,
And we found this O’Reilly fella on Fox.
We’re kinda like Joe the Plumber,
And when WE crunch the numbers,
It all adds up to votin’ you out at the ballot box!

He he he he he he…

You vote Obamacare,
We’re gonna vote you outta there!
We the People have awakened to your tricks.
You vote to let this pass,
You’ll be out on your ____!
‘Cause we the people have awakened…

And to put it mildly, we’re harboring feelings of extreme alienation, due to copious amounts of horse manure that have been shoveled out of the White House AND the Capitol Building, and we sense that we are being royally defecated upon. (Ha ha!) Yeah, we’re gettin’ the impression that you think we are not relevant to these proceedings, and dismissing our input into the situation.


Please tell Nancy Pelosi,
We’re gonna do the Hokey Pokey,
Put the “right” ones in,
Pull the “left” ones out.

You vote Obamacare,
We’re gonna vote you outta there!'
We the People have awakened to your tricks.
You vote to let this pass,
You’ll be out on your ____!
Yeah, we the people have awakened…

And you might want to start looking for another line of work. How ’bout the medical profession? Ha ha. Yeah, they’re gonna need every one that can put up with the red tape and the pay cut. Hey, why don’t you
· kill every last job,
· tax every last penny, and
· infringe on every God-given right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?!
.
‘Cause let me tell you, ain’t NOBODY happy with you!


We the People have awakened…

And it occurs to me that you might really like it down in Venezuela!
