WHAT’S GOING ON?

WHAT’S GOING ON?
(To tune of “What’s Going On?” written by Renaldo “Obie” Benson, Al Cleveland, and Marvin Gaye performed by Marvin Gaye on album of the same name)

Thomas, Thomas
What’s happened to our government?
Washington’s divided
Like fissures in the monument

When did we lose our way?
Can we not compromise today?

Party whips
Who steer the ship
Play politics
While a time-bomb ticks

What’s going on?
Tell me, what’s going on?

Thomas, Thomas
Nothing’s getting done of late
In school they always taught us
We send them there to legislate

 We’ve got to find a way
To solve some problems there today

 A country wrecked
A DC sect
Who disrespect
The people who elect

What’s going on?
Tell me, what’s going on?

Thomas, Thomas
Are you turning in your grave?
Listen to the hucksters
Do they think we’re in a cave?

We see them clear as day
Hear every lying word they say

Lobbying
And bickering
Accomplishing
Not one useful thing

What’s going on?
Tell me what’s going on?

Thomas, Thomas
How can we make them feel our rage?
We must show our anger
Every voter who’s of age

You gave us the right way
To have our voices heard today

To wield some clout
No need to shout
We’ll vote them out
This worthless horde of louts

What’s going on?
They’ll see what’s going on
