THE PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF OSHKOSH STORMS THE BASTILLE, VANQUISHING TIM GEITHNER, HELICOPTER BEN AND THEIR BAND
OF SCURVY RAPSCALLIONS

By PKesler

(sung to the tune of “Gilgarra Mountain”; adapted from the Waimaha by Peter, Paul and Curly)


As we were a-rovin’ over Treasury Mountain,
We spied Timmy Geithner and his money he was countin’.

First we drew our pistols, and then we drew our rapiers, sayin’:
Hand that loot over ‘cause you’re headed for the slaughter,

Mush-a-ring-um duram da,
Whack down the Treasury,
Whack down the Treasury:
We want our money back.

We cured that bastard’s kneecaps,
Then hunted down the Fed chaps, askin’:
Where’s Ben Bernanke, ‘cause we’ve got a score to settle.
The Fed chaps pointed upward to a high-flyin’ ‘copter:
But the damn bird looked real dizzy goin’ round and round in circles,

Mush-a-ring-um duram da,
Shoot down that dizzy bird,
Shoot down that dizzy bird:
We want our money back.

Let’s grab about a million for every buck they’ve taken,
Then throw out the Senators and lackeys they have raked in.
We’ll trash corporate personhood, smash Buckley & Vallejo,
Then make all the farmers plant organic potatoes,

Mush-a-ring-um duram da,
Smack down the CEOs,
Clean out the WTO:
We want our money back.

Well, here’s to all ye bankers
who think you’ve fleeced the people.
The corporate party’s over
So get ready for the sequel.
First we’ll grab some kindling
And then we’ll strike some matches, sayin’:
“Here’s the comeuppance for your wave of cheap foreclosures,”

Mush-a-ring-um duram da,
Bring on the dancing girls,
Let’s have another whirl,
We’ll take our money back.
