I woke up this morning with the lyrics to this song floating around in my head. So I had to write them down quickly before I forgot them (which I tend to do). The song and lyrics are called: “I ain’t doin’ no goosesteppin’ (For you, Senator Cruz)”. I’ve tightened the lyrics up a little bit, but they’re mostly what came to me in my early morning dream. I imagined the melody to be a country-western type tune with a twangy steel guitar, but I can’t remember now how the exact melody went (which doesn’t matter since I can’t write music anyway).

So head below the orange doohickey to read my latest bit of dream verse. I hope you all enjoy it and laugh as much as my wife did when I first read it to her. A laugh is better than a cry much of the time anyway, especially now.

I ain’t doin’ no goosesteppin’ (For you, Senator Cruz)

I ain’t doin’ no goosesteppin’
For you, Senator Cruz

And I ain’t doin’ no tea partyin’
That ain’t nothin’ but heart breakin’
That’s true, Senator Cruz

Now all of your pontificatin’
It just leads to people hatin’
You fool, Senator Cruz

And shuttin’ down the U.S.A.
That just ain’t the American way
So this is what I have to say:
F. U., Senator Cruz
You lose!

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.
