Buy a Politician – Lyrics

I wish I could buy a politician
I feel like all the cool kids have their own
Why buy a new TV
When it’s power that we need
And my pet politician will give it to me

I feel like I need a politician of my own
So I can force my opinions
On each and every one
Of the people in this country
Who didn’t have the foresight to buy one

I’ll go to fancy dinners
And feel free to break the law because
My politician will be sure and stall
Any legal proceedings
Against my plan of world domination

I wish I could buy a politician
I feel like all the cool kids have their own
Why buy a new TV
When it’s power that we need
And my pet politician will give it to me

Well I don’t much care what party he’s in
Because my politician
He’ll bow to my whim
And support whatever legislation
Makes me more money

And sooner or later one just won’t do
So I’ll have to save up and buy a few more
And maybe someday, I’ll have three or four

I wish I could buy a politician
I feel like all the cool kids have their own
Why buy a new TV
When it’s power that we need
And my pet politician will give it to me
