That Tea Party Racket (Ain't Playin' So Well No More) Blues
- Advertisement -

Governor Scott Walker tried to
Take union rights away
But the workers of Wisconsin
Are gonna make him pay
We're working on those recalls
- Advertisement -
Gonna show those bums the door.
That Tea Party racket
Ain't playin' so well no more!

Oh here in Pennsylvania
Corbett's slashing aid to schools.
That means more local taxes.
They're playing us for fools
But meanwhile with natural gas
He's giving away the store.
This Tea Party racket
Ain't playin' so well no more!

Over in Ohio
The legislature threw
Union rights of cops away
And firefighters too.
What happens if a fire
Starts on the capital floor?
Then that Tea Party racket
Won't play so well no more!

There's twenty percent unemployed
Home prices in the the gutter
We're already mired in two wars
And Obama starts another
The rich are getting richer
While the poor just get more poor
Oh that Tea Party racket
Ain't playing so well no more.

Oh that Tea Party racket
Ain't playing so well no more.
They're trying to kill off everthing
That we have a government for.
But people are waking up
And now they know the score.
Oh that Tea Party racket
Ain't playing so well no more!
