A tongue in cheek political tune aligning the band with 99%ers.


Representative, Sitting on a park bench
Watchin’ all the poor walk by
Holds tight to his money lined pockets
Big Slice of American Pie

Representative represent
Kick backs to corporations
While we can’t pay our rent
Weak work with months vacations
Our unemployment spent


Senator sittin’ in the first class
Watchin’ all the middle class get canned
Fat baggage strapped to the right wing
Leave it up to the left to land

Rich Senator stay the course
Bail out the Wall Street bankers
While they forcloe our doors
Iraq filled oil tankers
Our kids can fight your wars


Koch Brothers sittin’ on their old asses
Having a Tea Party
Manipulating and dividing all the underclasses
A Machiavellian Monoploly

De De, De De De De……

Mr. President hear our plea
Limit the power of the corporation
To buy our Democracy
Unmask the secrets of this sad nation
It’s now or never let us be free



released January 24, 2012
Produced by The Mysteries Gone and Ken Osborne of Outverse Collective
