It’s come over me
I don’t vote, don’t march, don’t care
I spend more time on my hair
I’m teetotaling on a news prohibition
I cancelled my New York Times subscription
I threw my Newsweeks in the sewer
Now I get my news from Jon Stewart
You know you want the same
But that’s the difference between you and me
I can live with myself when I’m lame
You may think this song is intended to dis' you
That it’s tongue in cheek, and just satiric
But no no, I really don’t ever read or do shit
I only watch the news when I’m desperate for lyrics
I know I should really care, But I don’t want to go on no tirade.
And for me, I feel like,
Isn’t that why those Senators get paid?
The world’s a mess but I’m busy!
No sense in tryin’ hard or straining, no no no no,
Don’t wanna run around all in a tizzy
I save my energy….
