(CONGRESS IS) TOO TERRIBLE FOR WORDS
(To tune of “Too Marvelous for Words” by Richard Whiting and Johnny Mercer (1937))
You’re just too terrible, too awful in a word.
You’re treacherous, and treasonous,
How could a congress reason thus?
You’re irresponsible, dumb is the proper word,
You’re poisonous, dangerous,
And sure to cost some pain for us.
No deal, no guilt,
You’ve left us feeling livid.
No flair, no will,
And thinking far too rigid.
And so I’m singing you
This song, not mincing words,
“Dear congress you’re too terrible,
In fact, you’re for the birds.”
