Scrap the Cap...or we're movin' in, kids

"I am not a good American...I prefer to form my own opinions" - George Carlin

Lifted from crooksandliars.com...verbatim.

It's too good to pass up. Lyrics below the video...just in case you old geezers can't hear it.

Anyone who supports "Scrapping the Cap," can take action on the web site related to the video.



The lyrics of the song:
The real old school in the house
Give it up for the geezers
Had our golden years all planned out
Small pension, golf cart and a Florida house
But congress put a hit on Social Security
Mugged us of our dignity despite our maturity
Tax we paid with every check we earned
Time to collect we the ones gettin burned
There’s nothing we can do if we can’t get paid
‘cept eat cat food, and drink haterade
Listen up cuz while we drop some knowledge
We raised our little boy, put him through college
Only safety net is our next of kin
Look out son, cause we’re movin in (what!?)
We’re movin in (what!?)
We’re movin in (what!?)
Pull out the couch cause we’re movin in (what!?)
No arguin (what!?)
No arguin (what!?)
Pull out the couch cause we’re movin in
Name’s Spinal Twist, check my orthopedic kicks
‘cause I stoop farther south than the St. Lunatics.
I’m still getting play and it’s all thanks to Pfizer,
Keepin me stiffer than my Yankees cap visor
My station wagon windows are dark with tint
I subscribe to vibe and I get the large print
They call me Martini got substance abuse
‘cause I’m always playin gin and sippin on juice
Our son wants to know if we can pay the rent,
But without benefits we ain’t got 50 cent,
We don’t pack a nine, we’re just strapped for funds
But we’re still game killers for our bachelor son
[interlude]
Social Security payments are far from erratic
“it’s broke and failin” don’t believe that static
This crisis is a fiction there would be no debate
If we all pitched in at the same tax rate
There’s a cap on how much millionaires pay
Even though we all work like every single day
These are the facts but they’re provin’ thin
So pull out the couch ‘cause we’re movin in
We’re movin in (what!?)
We’re movin in (what!?)
Pull out the couch cause we’re movin in (what!?)
No arguin (what!?)
No arguin (what!?)
Pull out the couch ‘cause we’re movin in
Alright now younginz, you’re our last resort
‘cause sooner or later, we’ll be needin support
If you don’t want roommates just learn this rap
It’s only one line, shout SCRAP THE CAP
Scrap the cap
Scrap the cap
Throw your hands up
Just scrap the cap
Scrap the cap
Scrap the cap
Throw your hands up
Just scrap the cap

YD G---Good. I thought it might.

Tom Harper said...

Great lyrics. Scrap it.

Ever since I saw the line about "‘cause I’m always playin gin and sippin on juice," I've had that Snoop Doggy Dog track running through my head.

I plaN on moving in with my kids when I get old more as revenge than economic need.

jadedj said...

Tom---Snoop Dogg (what's with the extra "g"?) and I parted company along about, um, 1992...his debut year. A couple of words out of his mouth was enough for me.

jadedj said...

Truth---This is a good plan. Are you going to reveal the necessity of relying on them to change the Depends up front...or spring it on them after a few days of usage?

Truth 101 said...

I have to watch the bowel movement stuff around the kids as I have it in my living will to pull the plug when I can't wipe my own ass.

jadedj said...

Truth---HAHAHAHAHAHA!

Kulkuri said...

Good rap. I threw it up on facebook after signing the petition.

"Avenge yourself, live long enough to be a problem for your children!!"

Mr. Charleston said...

I gonna hold up a bank and go to prison.
Three hots and a cot and that ain't all cuzzin'.
Free meds and dope and entertainment too.
Ain't nothin' like life in a human zoo.
Geezer Power! (Say what? Say what?)
Geezer Power! (Say what? Say what?)
Geezer Power is all you need
Gimme my cane and put on the feed.

jadedj said...

Kulkuri---Good idea, I didn't think of that.

Mr. C---Mr. C, aka...Snoop Gator. Good one C!

Punch said...

Sorry Pal, I just refuse to join the party of geezzers, just too backward looking.
"He not busy being born is busy dying."

jadedj said...

Punch---Sooooo...you're not in favor of scapping the cap?

Chimp said...

And they say we old foggies ain't with the times!!!

jadedj said...

Chimp---Who said that?

Punch said...

'spose not? What is scapping?

jadedj said...

Punch---Scapping is a typographical error for scrapping. I should also point out that people in grammatical glass houses probably ought to suffer them lightly.

Punch said...

I am unhip and though scapping was a hip/hop thingy where one graps their balls/pussy as the case may be and then their cap with the other and that was scapping. As it turn out my grandmommy is somehow envolved. I should have know when she bought that glass house and began to dance nude. by the way I don't wear caps! I TYPE WITH THEM ON OCCASION. BUT that is a horse of a different color.

jadedj said...

Punch---Thanks for clearing all that up.

It would seem that that there horse keeps dropping by here. You should make a note that you can lead it to water, but you can't change it's color.

Chimp said...

The regular dictionary didn't have a meaning for scapping, however, the URBAN DICTIONARY had this:
scapper
Urban San Diego slang for somebody being a punk or is,bullshitter,ridiculous,hardcore hating or hater
it must be the clothes im wearing cuzz they scapping me.

jadedj said...

Chimp---Amazing what happens when one accidentally leaves out one letter of a word. Just amazing.

Sunny said...

Hi JJ :) Interesting entry! Today ( Oct 25 ) is Chimp's 65th birthday !! Thought you'd like to know :)

jadedj said...

Sunny---How in the world are you? Sorry, I was down with a tummy bug yesterday afternoon, so I'm late with a reply.

So Chimp has joined the ranks of the Social Security teat gang, eh? You know I'm joking, of course.

Chimp said...

Now you know why I'm bitching when the 1% tries to take it away from us.

jadedj said...

Chimp---Hey, belated Happy "entitlement" day!

Harlequin said...

splendid lyrics; thank you, thank you.

jadedj said...

Harlequin---Kinda catchy, isn't it?
