Fifty Ways to Craze Your Donors

Uploaded: Jul 27, 2014
-- with apologies to Paul Simon; he deserves better

The problem's all over my inbox, it seems to me
I'm being deluged with funding crap from DNC
I'd like to assist them to oppose the GOP
But they've found fifty ways to craze their donors.

They claim it's really not their habit to intrude
But they'd do better if they left a decent email interlude
So I'll repeat myself, even if the Prez is being sued
They've figured fifty ways to craze their donors
Fifty ways to craze their donors

[CHORUS:

Don't wanna meet Barack, Jack
Or give you more dough, Joe
You know I don't like the Kochs, folks
But you must leave me be!
Already know there's a need, Reid
You don't make me feel guil-tee
So call-off the First La-dy
And just quit dunning me

They say the Republicans are making Senate gains
They wish there was something they could do, to make me give again
But I don't appreciate that
So would you please refrain
From sending fifty ways?

I know they use expertise to hone the plea just right
And they believe, in repetition, I will finally see the light
And so they spam me -- they don't realize my wallet's closed up tight
Because of fifty ways to craze their donors
Fifty ways to craze their donors.

[CHORUS
