Christine O'Donnell First Amendment Forgetfulness: News in Song

Capo 2
C, G, D/F#

I'm like you
I've never read the constitution
I'm like you
I'm confused by evolution

I'm like you
Taxes are bad
But sometimes I like the things they go to

I'm like you
A Christian well I'm kind of Christian
I'm like you
War is bad but bomb the villains

I'm like you
I watch fox news
That's all the news I choose to believe in

I'm like you
I try to cheat on all my taxes
I'm like you
I look real good in business slacks

And I'm like you
I think big government is bad
Unless it helps my home state in a big sort of way

So I'll go to Washington
And it'll be just like if you were there
Won't know a thing that's going on
Won't read a single bill or care

But I'll yell
Lower taxes
And I'll cry
more freedom
and repeat one-liners
but not know what they mean

I'm like you
I'm just like you
And neither one of us have got a clue

Chile Miner Rescue: News in Song

Capo 1

G, Em, C, G
Scientists and minds from dozens of countries
All came together
Was a beautiful picture
It was a beautiful picture

Mind-share, drill scare
Love affair, soot hair
Dark lair, lord’s prayer
all scared, we got there
yes, we got there

half a mile underground
in Copiapo Chile
estamos bien en el refugio,
los 33’o
how can it be, oh

G, Em, D
33 miners in a hole
Chile hello
C’mon let’s go
70 and 69
days trapped in a mine
yes we’re doing fine

about to come out
but the question remains
who do I hug first
my wife or my lover
or should I introduce them to each other?

C, G, Em, D/F#
See the sunshine
Kiss your wife then
Kiss the sky and
Maybe your girlfriend

Segway CEO Jimi Heselden Dies on Segway: News in Song

Em, C, G, D/F#

Speaking of segways
Here’s a segue
Into a story
About a segway king
That rode it off into the deep sunset

Off a cliff
Into a river
Life a joke
And death the giver
And on two wheels
Jimi Heselden drove away

It’s not funny
But it’s ironic in a really funny way
Looking back, it will be funny
In a tragic Shakespeare play

Plus, it gets better, ‘cause he’s not only
the CEO of segways but of a company
that makes protective barriers
which did not protect him from driving his segway
