The King of Bain  (with apologies to Sting and The Police)

There's a little remark in The Globe today,
It's the same old thing as yesterday.
A reporter wants to play campaign cop,
And despite my flag-pin he just won't stop.

I have stood here before as I tried to explain.
There's a quirk in the law and I used it to gain.
Now if you'll excuse me I'd like to start my reign,
Because it's my destiny, I am the King of Bain.

There's a little remark in The Globe today,
(They caught me lying there.)

(He caught me lying there.)
And despite my flag-pin he just won't stop.

Now if you'll excuse me I'd like to start my reign,
Because it's my destiny, I am the King of Bain.

King of Bain

There's a Fox News story to lead the pack.
(They let me lie on there)
They hate me really but they have my back.
(They let me lie on there)
There's a little remark in The Globe today ...
It's the same old thing as yesterday ...

I have stood here before as I tried to explain.
There's a quirk in the law and I used it to gain.
Now if you'll excuse me I'd like to start my reign,
Because it's my destiny, I am the King of Bain.

King of Bain
King of Bain
King of Bain
I always was King of Bain
I always was King of Bain
I always was King of Bain

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.

    I had an urge to do this tonight, but in lieu of re-doing something that you've already done really well, I will just share this with you:

    Pumped Up Mitt (with my apologies to Foster the People)

    Romney's got a quick hand.
    He's lookin' 'round for votes,
    He won't tell you his plan.
    He's got a red etch-a-sketch
    Hanging outta his hand.
    He's a confused kid.

    Yeah! He found a tri-ckle-down gun
    and it's his turn now, 'cause Jospeh Smith said so, son.
    He don't even know what,
    but he's coming for you. Yeah, He's coming for you!

    All the middle class with the decent jobs,
    You better vote, better vote, outvote his gun.

    You better vote, better vote, outvote his gun.

    You better vote, better vote, faster than his bullet.

    Mitty works a long day.
    He ain't worked in years, firin' those that he hates.
    And he's bringing you a surprise.
    'cause Bain is in your business and it's slice and dice

    He's waited for a long time.
    Yeah the sleight of his hand is now a quick-pull trigger.
    His reasons are an etch-a-sketch,
    He says, "Dog's on the roof, he must have liked his ride, yeah?"

    All the people sick with no insurance,
    You better vote, better vote, outvote his gun.
    All the working poor with a payday loan,
    You better vote, better vote, faster than his bullet.

    You better vote, better vote, outvote his gun.
    All the veterans with a broken limb,
    You better vote, better vote, faster than his bullet.

    (Run, Run, Run, Run. Run, Run.
    Run, Run, Run.)

    (whistle)

    All the pacifists who are against war,
    You better vote, better vote, outvote his gun.

    You better vote, better vote, faster than his bullet.

    You better vote, better vote, faster than his bullet.

    All the small farmers for organic crops,
    You better vote, better vote, outvote his gun.
    All the Atheists, who want don't want to burn,

    You better vote, better vote, outvote his gun.
    All the scientists who are for research,
    You better vote, better vote, faster than his bullet.
