Sung To The Tune Of...

It's All the Same of Man of La Mancha fame.

sung by ALDONZA, the voter who has put her faith in too many elections:

To the candidates:

One politician is like another
I don't know why or who's to blame,
I'll vote for you or for the other
It's all the same, it's all the same.
This I have learned:
That when the count's out,
No pres' will rule with special flame,
You'll prove to me before your term's out,
You're all the same, you're all the same.

So do not talk to me of change,
I'm not a fool with starry eyes,
You'll take my vote to the White House,
And you will hobnob with the stars!

One politician is like another
I don't know why or who's to blame,
I'll vote for you or for the other
It's all the same, it's all the same.
This I have learned:
That when the count's out,
No pres' will rule with special flame,
You'll prove to me before your term's out,
You're all the same, you're all the same.

Oh, I've heard too many promises,
But I know they're only lies,
And I have voted for those like you
Though you can't look me in the eyes.

I do not like you or your opponent,
I do not trust the promises you make,
But I will vote, because I'm a citizen.
Not that I believe it will help.
One politician is like another
You're all the same, you're all the same!


Original lyrics:
One pair of arms is like another
I don't know why or who's to blame,
I'll go with you or with your brother
It's all the same, it's all the same.
This I have learned:
That when the light's out,
No man will bum with special flame,
You'll prove to me before the night's out,
You're all the same, you're all the same.

So do not talk to me of love,
I'm not a fool with starry eyes,
Just put your money in my hand,
And you will get what money buys!
One pair of arms is like another,
I don't know why or who's to blame,
I'll go with you or with your brother
It's all the same, it's all the same.
This I have learned:
That when the light's out,
No man will bum with special flame,
You'll prove to me before the night's out,
You're all the same, you're all the same.

Oh, I have seen too many beds,
But I have known too little rest,
And I have loved too many men
With hatred burning in my breast.
I do not like you or your brother,
I do not like the life I live,
But I am me, I am Aldonza.
And what I give, I choose to give.
One pair of arms is like another
It's all the same, it's all the same!

Thanks
It has been singing in my head for so long, so I figured I ought to let it out.

Shalom!
You know you're in trouble when a song about "your" government fits so well with the Man of La Mancha... Nice going, Batya

Batya said...

Thanks
Actually, I start singing it whenever I think of Obama! But they're "all the same"!
