parody by Anne Smith, with apologies to Leonard Cohen.

Guitar and singing by Don Smith:

G                                 Em                       G                          Em

I heard there was a tax accord, with Norquist as the overlord

C                             D                                    G            D

But Democrats don’t care for tax cuts do ya?

G                           C        D          Em                      C

It goes like this, the deficit, the debt ceiling, the fiscal cliff

D                                  Em

Republicans are screaming “we will screw ya.”

C            Em                                C                      G    D     G

We will screw ya, we will screw ya, We will screw ya. We will screw ya.

 
 

G                                  Em                           G                      Em

Well Baby, we’ve been here before, When Bush’s boys declared the war,

C                                         D                    G            D

And then they cut the taxes for a few, yeah.

G                                      C          D             Em                     C

The Koch Brothers, the One percent, their money fought the President

D                                      Em

But on November 6, we overthrew ya.

C             Em               C             G    D     G

Hallelujah,                   Hallelujah,               Hallelujah,             Hallelujah
