Satire: Hey Senator Manchin – San Diego Jewish World

SAN DIEGO – To the melody of Officer Krupke:

Dear stubborn Joseph Manchin
You have to understand.
Can you make an exception?
Pass the bills Biden has planned.
The GOPs are lackeys.
They are chess pieces of Donald Trump.
Mitch McConnell thinks you’re a fool.

Gosh, Senator Manchin, we are very angry.
Please change the filibuster that represents the threat.
60 votes for Cloture.
It’s just unfair.
The consensus you are looking for just isn’t there.

It’s not there, it’s not there
It’s just not there.
Power is something the Trump mob won’t share.

Dear stubborn Joseph Manchin,
The infrastructure bill
Needs reconciliation.
Do you have the fiscal will?
Undermine your own party
And his future hopes
Jumping lizards! Biden is on the ropes.

Senator Manchin, you really are a fool.
The filibuster is a regressive rule.
Ensuring the standstill for the coming years.
Trump in the White House is what you should fear.
