Lyricist strolls slowly toward the IDEA of an International AmCan DEBATE SHOWDOWN ... singing to the tune of "My Country Tis of Thee"

[SUNG TO THE MELODY OF
"MY COUNTRY TIS OF THEE"
(SOURCE:American Patriotic MIDI Files)


[VERSE 1]
Will I subscribe to see
Cutler's reality?
Pay cold, hard dough?


Twenty-five dollars to
ac-ti-vate Show-time's brew
of cable-programs, slight-ly blue ...
and Cutler's show?


[VERSE 2]
Then each month, twenty more.
What the hell ev-er for?
(A-del-phia's broke.)


Ev-en if I ... was on
(not writing songs at dawn)
I would-much-rather ... MOW the LAWN
than watch this joke.


[VERSE 3]
I'm being mean, to-night.
Spoiling for or-al fight:
For a de-bate.


Oxford or Cambridge hall:
Let's try the case! ... Then all
of those present ... make the call
on Am-Sham-gate.


[VERSE 4]
What else is there to say
in this blog ... any-way?
We've said it all.


What's missing is A VOTE.
Find out just who's ... the goat:
IS R-J GUILTY? ...
On that note
let's go to the mall.


While VERITAS is mysteriously traveling about ... maybe she can help orchestrate an international debate. In any case, she'll be back next week ... The week of TCA in L.A. for AmCan ...
