Delegates during the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte.

The Democratic Blues
(Offered in the spirit of parody)
Sung to the tune of Sweet Home Chicago, by Robert Johnson:

Nunn and Nunn’s Perdue,
Perdue and two is three,
what’ve I gotta do,
to make you vote for me?

Come on, Debbie*  don’t you want to go

Come on, Debbie don’t you want to go
Fight the same old Super-PAC, ‘Merican Crossroads

Couple million for Landrieu,
all prime-time TV,
then the Kochs put four on cable,
for all of FOX to see.

Come on, Debbie don’t you want to go
Come on, Debbie don’t you want to go
Fight the same old Super-PAC, ‘Merican Crossroads

If Hagan’s a one-termer
and Carolina’s gone,
then let this be a learner:
Obamacare is done.

Come on, Debbie don’t you want to go
Come on, Debbie don’t you want to go
Fight the same old Super-PAC, ‘Merican Crossroads

Pryor’s in high Cotton,
and Little Rock’s abuzz,
Bill Clinton, he’s forgotten,
No matter what he does.

Come on, Debbie don’t you want to go
Come on, Debbie don’t you want to go
Fight the same old Super-PAC, ‘Merican Crossroads

Old Harkin, he’s retiring,
out there sawin’ logs,
and look who gets elected,
the one who’s cuttin’ hogs.

Come on, Debbie don’t you want to go
Come on, Debbie don’t you want to go
Fight the same old Super-PAC, ‘Merican Crossroads

Sullivan ain’t no Palin,
Yet Begich’s on the ropes,
If Alaska’s six that’s failin’
then Reid’s lost all his hopes.

Come on, Debbie don’t you want to go
Come on, Debbie don’t you want to go
Fight the same old Super-PAC, ‘Merican Crossroads

When the only hope is Georgia,
no matter what the cost,
And out comes good ‘ol Jimma,
You know the game is lost.

Come on, Debbie don’t you want to go
Come on, Debbie don’t you want to go
Fight the same old Super-PAC, ‘Merican Crossroads

Six makes fifty-one,
cloture’s dead and gone,
The Senate’s Republican,
Jeb Bush, he won’t take long.

Come on, Debbie don’t you want to go
Come on, Debbie don’t you want to go
Fight the same old Super-PAC, ‘Merican Crossroads

(With apologies to Debbie Wasserman Schultz)
