OH CONGRESS

SUNG TO “OH DONNA”

BY RICHIE VALENS

 

OHHH CONGRESS OHHH CONGRESS

OHHH CONGRESS OHHH CONGRESS

 

 

We once had some lawmakers

Congress was their name

Now they’re mostly lawyers

That bring this nation to shame.

 

 

When will it change now.

Oh common sense where can you be.

Where can you be.

 

 

Presidents come and go.

But Congress stays the same.

The stench of age and decay.

As senility rots their brain.

 

 

When will it change now.

Oh reality where can you be.

Where can you be.

 

 

Laws invoked to help.

Only to oppress.

Acting like commons and lords

Wearing wigs and a dress.

 

 

When will it change now.

Compromise before it’s too late.

Before it’s too late.

 

 

Pelosi and Ryan.

Are certainly a matched pair.

Leaders in the House

That won’t hear the others air.

 

 

McConnell and Schumer

Are two to beware.

Domineering the Senate

Deaf ears they both wear.

 

 

When will the listen

The nation’s crumbling now

Crumbling now.

 

 

KKK, Patriots Pray and Birchers

Line up to shut down

Antifa and the lefties

Fights start blood spilled on the ground

 

 

When will it sink in

They’re all being used to usurp

Used to usurp.

 

 

The nation is burning

The government stands aside

You got what you elected

Both sides beaming with pride.

 

 

When will it change now

When will we ever learn

When will WE learn.

Nice one Ric. When will we ever learn?

 Term limits would stem corruption!

Well done Ric,
 
I actually sang it.
 
Great way to start the day

Dino I agree but term limits would be just a start. The R's and D's have a stranglehold on access to the political arena which stifles new and fresh ideas. I also believe Supreme Court Justices should have term limits.

I can't get that song out of my head now!
I agree with Dino that fixed terms would help put an end to corruption!

Opher i know how you feel. I walked around for three days with that earworm. Finally I sat down and took 15 minutes to write it. Tune still in my head. LOL

Ric - it's funny how that happens isn't it? A song worms its way into your head!

Drives you nuts sometimes. But when this one entered it came as Oh Congress and not Oh Donna. After three days I figured I was supposed to stop what I was writing about and do something with this one.

You have to when that happens. Sometimes I get up in the night to get one of those down!

Same here. Half asleep still groggy. Pen to pad and let it fly. Then back to bed and read what I wrote the next morning.

Now I’ve got that song stuck in my head...
 
LOL, very well done.

I sang it also..very good. I would say hysterical because I did get a chuckle out of it,  but sadly its true.  Ric..another good one.
Ric Wells Added Sep 12, 2018 - 2:18pm
Now I've got Whole Lotta Love stuck in my head. I'll see what I can do with that one. 
wsucram15 Added Sep 12, 2018 - 2:44pm
LOL..now that made me laugh..

Come on Jeffrey, Ric and Jeanne - I think it's time for you to join the Digital Tavern, pull up a chair, pour a pint and tell us a story from your wicked adventurous youth.
