Sequestration! (a song parody)

(sing to the tune of Interjection! from Schoolhouse Rock)

When the country had a debt that accrued, uh-huh-huh,
The Congress knew just what to do-hoo
Wait until the election
Too scared to make a correction
And freak us all out with sequestration!

Hey! That smarts!
Ouch! That hurts!
Yow! That’s not fair taking that funding from down there!

Sequestration shows excitement(Yow!) and emotion(Ouch!)
It’s generally set apart from a nuisance by a maturation point
and by drama when the courage isn’t so strong
mmmm…

The President played hard to get, uh huh
John Boener knew he’d woo him ye-et
He showed his affection
Despite tea party objection
And both houses of Congress passed sequestration

Well! You’ve got some nerve!
Oh! I’ve never been so insulted in all my life!
Hey! You’re kinda cute!

Sequestration (Well!) shows excitement (Oh!) and emotion (Hey!)
It’s generally set apart from a nuisance by a maturation point
and by drama when the courage isn’t so strong

So when you’re unhappy }} {Ugh!}
And sad }} {Aw!}
And frightened }} {Eeeeeek!}
And mad }} {Rats!}
And frustrated }} {Doh!}
And bad }} {Eff!}

Sequestration started the day just right!

After six months, no progress at all.. uh huh
When the Senate found that they had the ba-all
Joe Biden made a connection
Tax rates went the wrong direction
And the crowd started shouting for sequestration!

Sequestration shows excitement and emotion
It’s generally set apart from a nuisance by a maturation point
and by drama when the courage isn’t so strong

So when you’re unhappy }} {Ugh!}
And sad }} {Aw!}
And frightened }} {Eeeeeek!}
And mad }} {Rats!}
And frustrated }} {Doh!}
And bad }} {Eff!}

Sequestration started the day just right!

Sequestration shows excitement and emotion
It’s generally set apart from a nuisance by a maturation point
and by drama when the courage isn’t so strong

Sequestions
Shows excitement!
And emotion!
Hallelujah!
Hallelujah!
Hallelujah . . . yeah!!
