With apologies the great CAb Calloway, I wrote this the other day.

It's on my wp satire/parody blog,  523Patriots and Facebook

Mitty the Moocher
original music and lyrics – Cab Calloway

New lyrics – Kelly Lincoln

Folks here’s a story bout Mitty the Moocher
He was stone-cold heartless doucher
He talked like he could stand the heat
But Mitty flipped-flopped like rotting meat

Ho-dee ho-dee ho
Ho-dee ho-dee ho
Hi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi
Hi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi
Hey-dee hey
Hey-dee hey
Whoah
Whoah

He messed around with a bloke named Shelley
He loved his money though it was smelly
he took him down to Dante’s Hell
and he showed where he would reign if he joined the Cabal

Hey-dee hey-dee hey
Hey-dee hey-dee hey
Oy yoi yoi yoi yoi yoi
Oy yoi yoi yoi yoi yoi
Ay yi yi yi yi yi-oh
Ay yi yi yi yi yi-oh
Whoah
Whoah

He had a dream of workers bleedin’
Ignoring all the Americans pleadin’
He took their jobs and sent them away
While he was jet-skiing on a summer’s day

Hi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi
Hi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi
Hey-dee hey-dee hey-dee hey-dee hey
Hey-dee hey-dee hey-dee hey-dee hey

Hi-dee hi-dee hi
Hi-dee hi-dee hi
Whoah
Whoah

Poor Mitt, poor Mitt, poor Mitt.

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 always liked Cab Calloway and Minnie is one of my favorites.

    They say ole Mitty is a sociopath
    And always walked along a hell-bound path.
    I look into his past and I see the proof:
    A little beat-up gay-boy and a dog on the roof.

      He says he's better than that bad 47.
      He says he'll be a God when he gets to Heaven.
      Guess that's a comfort for ole Mitt to remember --
      He sure as hell won't be no God the sixth of November.
