Government for Sale or Rent
Political Parody Lyrics by George Pilsbury 
Based on "King of the Road", a 1964 song, written and originally recorded by country singer Roger Miller.

Government for sale or rent
billionaires for president
Elections on the auction block
buying access like a stock... it’s a
money game played by the few...
they’ve got a lot more of it than we do.. for those
men of means, what a sweet scheme...
... big money road
soft money, super PAC’s...
buying ads to launch their attacks
promising to lower the tax, so when they win their donor friends
get all their money back.... it’s just a
little bit of Quid Pro Quo, that makes those campaign contributions flow,
for those... men of means, what a sweet scheme...
... big money road

Every election in every town
candidates climb on the Money-Go-Round
dialing for dollars, digging for dough
the more they make the more they forget what they’re there for... its a
Government for sale or rent
billionaires for president
elections on the auction block
buying access like a stock... it’s a
Money game played by the few...
they’ve got a lot more of it than we do.. for those
men of means, what a sweet scheme...
big money road

hey special interests, what’s your interest in Me?
thousdand buck dinners and your spouse gets in free.
for five grand I’ll shake your hand and share a cigar..
A hundred thou’ we’re talking now!;
I’ll write you a law!...
My Government’s for sale or rent
billionaires for president
elections on the auction block
buying access like a stock.. its’ a
money game played by the few... they’ve got a
lot more of it than we do... for those
men of means what a sweet scheme
big money road!

Democracy is on the ropes..
When money counts more than your votes..
We need fair elections, fair and clean, from that..
big money road, get off that
big money road, i said that
big money road, yeah!

Big Money, Big Money, Big Money!
