Scalia's not yet in the ground
When the order from McConnell comes down
"This is Obama's final year,
Let's stick together boys the end is near"
McConnell knew he'd have to stall
He claimed the public got to make the call
And so the GOP held firm
In the twilight of Obama's term
They would not entertain his choice
They're sick of listening to a black man's voice
Hung Merrick Garland out to dry
Just because he was Obama's guy
It was obstruction at its best
Mitch McConnell passed the douchebag test

The 1% puts up a fight
They want the Court to keep on tilting right
So they went looking for a tool
Gorsuch played by all the corporate rules
They saw the "frozen trucker" case
They lost but Gorsuch was a friendly face
They knew right then they'd found their man:
The prototypical Republican

During the hearings Neil lost face
When the Supremes shot down a Gorsuch case
The votes weren't there, McConnell knew
He nuked the Senate like he said he'd do
So Gorsuch dons the famous robes
Maybe he'll help to sink the Russian probe
And so McConnell saved the day
By redefining the American Way
The 1% just won again
They keep on ruling us common men
They say that karma is a bitch
When will it ever bite the super rich?

Raise your glass with all the wealthy men
Mitch McConnell saved the day again
Let's toast the zombie with the triple chin
Mitch McConnell saved the day again
Made up the rulebook as he went along
Mitch McConnell could do no wrong
Supreme inJustice with a hint of taint
Mitch McConnell is your patron saint
Some call it theft, some call it dirty tricks
Saint McConnell calls it politics...

(some democracy... more like hypocrisy)
