The Candidates From The GOP

Time for another TransGriot Song rewrite.   This one was born during one of the GOP debates.  I was on Twitter and tweeting sarcastic remarks about the breathtaking ignorance being displayed by the pack of GOP presidential candidates and a song was born.

The Candidates From The GOP

Sung to the tune of ‘Wonderful World’ by Sam Cooke

Don’t know much about history

Don’t know much biology

They don’t care about a science book

Or a middle class pocketbook

But I know I can’t vote for you

Y’all think corporations are people too

The candidates from the GOP

Don’t know much about geography

They hate on minorities

Don’t care much about the rule of law

Don’t know what the government is for

You think a zygote is a person, too

Ain’t no way I’m gonna vote for you 

The candidates from the GOP

Now you brag about not being “A” students

But that’s important to me

Because unless you’re an “A” student baby

Can’t get the presidency

Don’t know much about history

Don’t know much biology

They don’t care about a science book

Or a middle class pocketbook

But I know I can’t vote for you

Think corporations are people too

The candidates from the GOP

La ta ta ta ta ta ta

(History)

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

(Biology)

La ta ta ta ta ta ta

(Science book)

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

(pocketbook)

But I know I can’t vote for you

Think corporations are people too
