Subject: Lyr Add: THE INNOCENT VOTER SWALLOWED A LIE

This was sung at an Earthday Ceremony in Palo Alto, Ca. yesterday to wild applause. You can sing it to the tune of "There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly."
 
 
"THE INNOCENT VOTER SWALLOWED A LIE"
 
The innocent voter swallowed a lie.
I don't know why she swallowed a lie--
The price was high!
 
The innocent voter swallowed her doubt
of what the war was all about.
She swallowed her doubt to swallow the lie
I don't know why she swallowed a lie--
The price was high!
 
The innocent voter swallowed some fluff
She didn't know - it was just a bluff,
Extra cover to smother her doubt
Of what the war was all about.
She swallowed her doubt to swallow the lie
I don't know why she swallowed a lie--
The price was high!
 
The innocent voter swallowed some spin
Blinding her to the fix we're in
She swallowed the spin to spin the fluff
That she didn't know - was just a bluff,
Extra cover to smother her doubt
Of what the war was all about.
She swallowed her doubt to swallow the lie
I don't know why she swallowed a lie--
The price was high!
 
The innocent voter swallowed some TRUTH SERUM!
 
The TRUTH SERUM unspun the spin
that covered up the fix we're in!
The TRUTH SERUM dissolved the fluff
And told her that she'd had enough!
The TRUTH SERUM strengthened her doubt
Of what the  war was all about.
The TRUTH SERUM extracted the lie
And then she saw the price was high.
 
The innocent voter said "War isn't good!
It's not even going as well as it should!
No wonder I  felt all sick and bloated!
I'm lucky this happened - before I voted!"

I like it. We should keep a separate file for political songs this year, especially in the States. There's already great clouds of fluff and spin. All ye great Mudcatter song writers, rattle your sabers and pick up your pens to do battle, and keep a special eye out for humor - it lasts longer and feels better.
