I have to be honest and admit that prior to seeing this video by
Tim Hawkins, I had never heard of him. This guy is a hilarious
comedian and has a slew of self-produced videos. This one is a parody of Sammy Davis Jr.'s "The Candy Man."
my age or older remembers Sammy appearing on Dean Martin's show, Johnny Carson's show, and other variety shows
back in the 1960s and 1970s. "The Candy Man" was a song he performed over and over... and over, and over, and
over... and over, and over...
Enjoy the video:
Lyrics for "The Government Can"
Who can tax the sunrise?
Who can tax the trees?…
The Government… (The Government…)
The Government can because they mix it up with lies and make it all taste good.
give a bailout?
Tell us to behave?
Make the founding fathers roll over in their grave?
Oh, the Government can.
The Government can because they mix it up with lies and make it
all taste good.
The Government takes, everything we make,
They’re power hungry and malicious.
economics are fictitious.
Soon we’ll have to eat our dishes…
A few apropos quotes:
"The trouble with Socialism is, sooner or later you run out of other people's money."
"When you subsidize poverty and failure, you get more of both."
