( Election campaign song lyrics )
CAMPAIGN OF FEAR
Copyright © 2008 - MickTerry.com
Ev'ry four years, seems like we go through the same old wringer,
eight hundred zillion tons of hype, who knows how much money was spent?
Never too clear exactly who's coming out the winner.
It's never clearly understood just- where that money all went.
This CAMPAIGN OF FEAR that we bought into,
this CAMPAIGN OF FEAR that we've been sold,
this CAMPAIGN OF FEAR that's left us feeling screwed
has gotten way too old.
Ev'ry four years, some of the candidates use the same tool
to mold the public to their view, just to guarantee all their votes,
laying on fear and ev'ry time we appear the same fools,
led by a ring right through the nose, going where they want us to go.
And it works, how it works so effectively.
We're the jerks, such the jerks as we follow helplessly.
Ev'ry four years, seems like we’re sooner or later suckered
by politicians promising ev'ry thing to everyone.
Is it engineered just to keep us all down and tuckered?
Since when did public service mean taking care of old "Number One"?
Seems like the more they promise change,
the more they sound the same.
To quote The Who,
"Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss." *
