THE G-O-P PLATFORM

THE G-O-P PLATFORM
(To tune of “The Rain in Spain,” by Alan Jay Lerner & Frederick Loewe from “My Fair Lady”)

Verses
The G-O-P platform is mainly tea
The G-O-P platform is mainly tea
The Ryan plan sounds great
All agree, all agree
There’s Medicare to hate
Pour the tea, pour the tea

The G-O-P platform is mainly tea
The G-O-P platform is mainly tea
Tea partying feels nice
Pour the tea, some more tea
Todd Akin adds some spice
For the tea, for the tea

The G-O-P platform is mainly tea
The G-O-P platform is mainly tea
All bring and share some guns
Sipping tea, sipping tea
Salute your right-wing sons
Over tea, over tea

The G-O-P platform is mainly tea
The G-O-P platform is mainly tea
A toast to laissez-faire
Downing tea, foolish tea
The government strip bare
Over tea, over tea

Bridge
“What’s good about this tea?”
“You’ll be free, you’ll be free”
“If you mean poverty,
That’s not free, not to me”

Verses
The G-O-P platform is mainly tea
The G-O-P platform is mainly tea
Who’s healthy in their wealth?
Buying tea, right-wing tea
Who’s on their own for health?
Offered tea, bitter tea

 The G-O-P platform is mainly tea
The G-O-P platform is mainly tea
A cold free market hymn
For the tea, brutal tea
And those who cannot swim?
Swallow tea, drown in tea

The G-O-P platform is mainly tea
The G-O-P platform is mainly tea
Who’d rather sip and drink?
Numbing tea, mindless tea
Feels pleasant not to think
Pour the tea, pour the tea

The G-O-P platform is mainly tea
The G-O-P platform is mainly tea
