Lyricist marches through to sing a recap of the "SUPPORT ME!" BUTTON issue ... (to the tune of Yankee Doodle)


[RHETORICAL VERSE
IN THE FORM OF A SONG RE-WRITE
SUNG TO THE MELODY OF "YANKEE DOODLE"]


[VERSE 1]
"SUPPORT ME!" mouse clicks ... do not count.

They're only window dress-ing --

an interactive ... simulated ... democratic-less thing.

[CHORUS]
Imag-ine that you have a voice.

Think ... you pull the lev-er?

BUT ... the truth is ... you've no choice.

Just click your mouse... What-ev-er.



[VERSE 2]
Now, every-body ... with a clue ...

knew THAT was what the CLICKS-were.

But some folks, like Joe Caulfield, thought

they'd play the role of tricks-ter.


[REPEAT CHORUS]


[VERSE 3]
THE QUESTION is ... what kind of game

(in future) might deter-mine ...

which of the folks who throw their hat

should bow at op'ning cur-tain?


[REPEAT CHORUS]


[VERSE 4]
The only folks who ought to vote

are those who've got to see you

do something presidential-like.


(Not pre-shrunk network voo-doo).


[CHORUS]
Imag-ine that you have a voice.

Think ... you pull the lev-er?

BUT ... the truth is ... you've no choice.

Just click your mouse... What-ev-er.
