#163: Sung to the tune of....

The scansion may be a bit rocky, but I've been noodling with this idea for a couple of weeks and finally got around to trying to write some of it down.

(sung to the tune of Green Day's "American Idiot")

verse 1:
Wanna be a millionaire socialist
Don't wanna be taxed like an industrialist
I make millions singing songs and playing stuff
Don't want that money taken for social fluff

Welcome to a new life of luxury

You're rich and famous so that makes it okay
Salve your conscience as your net worth waxes
everyone should pay ever-greater taxes
Except for you, of course.

verse 2:
I'm from England I came to America
So I could keep much more of my moolah
Insult the people who buy all my CDs
Morons flock to my concerts and be groupies


Verse 3:
That is me, yes I am a hypocrite.
I'm super rich and I don't give a whit
I'll never give up my social conscience
Even though it's complete and utter nonsense.

    He's right, this is their perennial response. "If we can't have abortions, then the men have to be sterilized." The theory is that the men must be…
