Ode to the Welfare State

Chip Murray, who happens to be one of the entertainers here at CPAC 2014 wrote a song based off of a poem that appeared in the New York Daily News in response to a speech by President Harry Truman where he essentially promised a liberal utopia. The snarky poem was called “An Ode to the Welfare State.”

ode

 

 

“Father, must I go to work“
No, my lucky son, 
We’re living now on easy street
On dough from Uncle Sam.

We’ve left it up to Uncle Sam;
so don’t get exercised.
Nobody has to give a danm,
we’ve all been subsidized!”

welfare“But if Sam treats us all so well, 
and feeds us milk and honey,
Please tell me, Daddy, tell me what the hell
he’s going to use for money?”

“Don’t worry, bub, there’s not a hitch
in this here noble plan;
He simply soaks the filthy rich
and helps the common man!”
“But father, won’t there come a time
when they run out of cash,
When we have left them not a dime 
when things will go to smash?”

“My faith in you is shrinking,
son you nosey little brat;
You do too much thinking, boy, 
to be a Democrat!”

Here’s Chip performing the song himself.
