With the ever growing crassness of the Santorum campaign, I wrote this little song parody of the sea chanty, Reuben Ranzo.

The original story is about a New York tailor who has been shanghai'd (or "black balled") onto a whaler and what befalls him.

I'd record, but right now, my voice sux worse that usual

Melody: Reuben Ranzo

Poor old Rick Santorum!
Torum, boys, Torum!
pity Rick Santorum
Torum, boys, Torum

Oh, Santorum no lover
Torum, boys, Torum
of the gays or of lobster
Torum, boys, Torum

He opposed gay marriage
Torum, boys, Torum
Forever would disparage
Torum, boys, Torum

So Dan Savage held a contest
Torum, boys, Torum
To remind him of this fine mess
Torum, boys, Torum

The winner was a beauty
Torum, boys, Torum
Now it his “google problem, truly
Torum, boys, Torum

Santorum rallied baggers
Torum, boys, Torum
it gave the mirth to the tongue-waggers
Torum, boys, Torum

They demanded google fix it
Torum, boys, Torum
Ya made yer bed now lie in it.
Torum, boys, Torum

Santorum made some campaign ads
Torum, boys, Torum
that really made the pundits gag
Torum, boys, Torum

So he turned on Women’s health care
Torum, boys, Torum
Saying there’s no there there
Torum, boys, Torum

He pissed off all the beauties
Torum, boys, Torum
bet his balls are in a deep freeze
Torum, boys, Torum

Oh, Laugh at Rick Santorum
Torum, boys, Torum
No President he, Santorum
Torum, boys, Torum

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
