Available soon on cassette tape at all Montgomery Ward locations.

(Sung to the tune of It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas)

It's beginning to look a lot like Crist's mess

Ev'rywhere you go

Barack with his tax and spend, down in the polls again

With Charlie hoping not to fall so low.

It's beginning to look a lot like Crist's mess

Scott is saving more

But the ugliest sight to see was Bill Hyers sent to flee

Out the campaign door.

(Sung to the tune of Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer)

Health care got run over by the speaker

Sucking up to his own tea party

You can say there's no cash left for handouts

As for the sick and poor, just let 'em bleed.

(Sung to the tune of Silver Bells)

Health care errors, tons of errors

Blamed on computer files

In the air there's a feeling of failure

Fox is laughing, time is passing

Leaving pile after pile

And on ev'ry street corner you'll hear.

Website fails, website fails

Here's O-bama-care, such a pity

Ding-a-lings, messed-up things

Soon we shall see more delays.

(Sung to the tune of Deck the Halls)

Re-peal laws with David Jolly

Fa la la la la la la la la

'Tis his message, oh by golly

Fa la la la la la la la la.

Trash the nation's health care banner

Fa la la la la la la la la

Do you have a better answer?

Fa la la la la la la la la.

(Sung to the tune of Santa Claus is Coming to Town)

You better come now

You better not stop

You better say Wow!

When you're at the Trop

Dang those Rays are leaving this town.

They're studying the lease

And checking it twice

They're gonna shout out

We can't pay David Price

Dang those Rays are leaving this town.

They miss crowds when they're playing

They curse when you're away

They know if you've bought beer or food

If not, there's hell to pay.

Ohhh, you better come now

You better bring Pop

You better know how

To charge at the Trop

Dang those Rays are leaving this town.

(Sung to the tune of Do You Hear What I Hear?)

Said the old mayor to Kathleen Ford

"Do you see what I see?

"On the waterfront, Kathleen Ford

"Do you see what I see?

"A fence, a fence, built around the Pier

"That's the hallmark of your career

"That's the hallmark of your career."

Said the old mayor to mayor-elect

"Do you hear what I hear?

"Crying in your ear, mayor-elect

"Do you hear what I hear?

"A gripe, a whine, coming from council

"I swear that's the usual

"I swear that's the usual."

(Sung to the tune of O Little Town of Bethlehem)

O little town of Clearwater

How long must we deny

Their pockets deep and not so cheap

Scientologists still buy.

Yet one more building purchased

No Realtor can fight

Still calm your fears, I swear my dears

Tom Cruise is here tonight.

(Sung to the tune of Hark! The Herald Angels Sing)

Swap! The firefighters sing

Timecards don't prove anything

Shift is done and so we smile

Taxes can wait until we file.

(Sung to the tune of O Come All Ye Faithful)

O come all ye wasteful

Greedy and cold-blooded

O come ye, O come ye to Florida.

Come and destroy her

In the name of progress

O come, let them destroy her

O come, let them destroy her

O come, let them destroy her

The gov don't care.

Build without bylaws,

All ye corporate bosses

O build, all ye careless ones who profit alone

Glory to wealth

In their homes of privilege

O come, let them destroy her

O come, let them destroy her

O come, let them destroy her

The gov don't care.
