(To tune of Ol’ Man River, by Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II from 1927 Broadway musical Show Boat)

Republicans work in the halls of congress
Republicans work for the GOP
Democrats work in the halls of congress
Tell them they work there for you and me.
Boehner’s a man in the halls of congress
He’s the House leader, and it seems
He’s always the one with a grim comportment
Never the one with a smile that beams

Our man Boehner
Our sad man Boehner
He don’t say nothing
But he must know something
He keeps on frowning
He just keeps frowning all day

Who looks unhappy?
While disagreeing
Whose dour expression
I’m tired of seeing?
Our man Boehner
He keeps on frowning all day

We all live from day-to-day
Working too hard, for not much pay
He gets paid to craft the laws
But all he does is to clench his jaws.

I’m so weary
Of that man whining
Cause in one smile hides
A silver lining
Yet our man Boehner
Keeps on frowning all day.
