We Like the Government Lots, Tots

February 17th, 2003 · No Comments

Via Will, a charming little ditty that explains to the kiddies all the wonderful things our government does. Lyrically a bit reminiscent of Paul Simon’s “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover.”

Addendum: P.J. Doland informs me that the song is based on an Australian children’s tune called “Tie Me Kangaroo Down.” Looking at the last verse, I see that this belongs with “Rock-a-Bye-Baby” in The Big Book of Songs to Give Your Children Nightmares.
