CONGRESS WISHES YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS

CONGRESS WISHES YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS
(To tune of “Have Yourself a Very Merry Christmas” by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane, as performed by Judy Garland in film, “Meet Me in Saint Louis.”)

Congress wishes you a Merry Christmas
Soon we will adjourn
“You’ve done nothing so why bother to return.”

Congress wishes you a Merry Christmas
Here’s your new tax bill
“We’ve no jobs and so we’ll pay no taxes still.”

 Tis the season for merriment
To the Senate lend some elves
And to the house where smug members rent
Seats and represent themselves.

Come election we’ll vote to un-tether
What’s been a rich milk cow
Until then we’re stuck with this pathetic sow
And Congress wishes you a Merry Christmas now.
