I Bought Myself A Politician – Lyrics

I Bought Myself A Politician

I bought myself a politician
Cause I have never said I’d play it fair
They’re currently on sale
Just picked them up from Yale
They’re even cheaper if you take a pair

And on a whim I also bought the opposition
It’s better to be safe, you never know
And then for even less
I also bought the press
To wrap it up and I was good to go

Who would have thought that no one dared to stop me on my joyride
(Oh what a joyride)
Who would have thought that I could bring the whole world to its knees
And now the time has come to buy my way into the limelight

(just got the time right)
As universal scientist and generous philanthropist
my shopping list confirms my expertise

I bought myself a politician
Cause I have never said I’ll play it fair
If they are not on sale
I pick them up from jail
It doesn’t hurt to have a few to spare

Who would have thought that no one dared to stop me on my joyride
(Oh what a joyride)
Who would have thought that I could bring the whole world to its knees
And now the time has come to buy my way into the limelight
(so I can shine bright)
As universal scientist and generous philanthropist
my shopping list confirms my expertise

If you look closely you can see I’m on a mission
There’s something that I really wanna do
I’m promising you health
I’ll save you from yourself
That’s how I’m gonna try
To get you to comply
Might even have to lie so that you will let me buy you too

Absolutely amazing song!!!!
As a new fan at the ripe old age (ha!) of 56, I’m so tickled to have seen/heard this for my first MLT exposure. Great talent!

My favourite song though it is hard to choose as so many songs from MLT are excellent but this has humour and a tongue in cheek statement about politics that just tickles me and the video is the icing on the cake.

Everything about this is so very good. The lyrics, song and video. Very laid back but so vivid and showing the way as the 60’s artists did. I doesn’t get any better than this

This is about Bill Gates, isn’t it?

Among your originals, this is my favorite so far. A joy to listen to, to watch, and to connect with the crazy world we live in. I especially enjoyed it today after watching the theatrics of the U.S. House of Representatives trying (for the third day) to elect a Speaker of the House.

Politician is one of my favorite songs on the album.
The melody and lyrics are really great. Also, the video is clever, entertaining, and so well done. I Love It!

This song is a masterpiece! It is deliciously cynical and describes accurately what our poor world is living now. You truly are geniuses! I admire you !

I love this song as well as Songbird” from your upcoming album. Your music is such a refreshing change to modern music. Your talent, creativity and originality never cease to amaze me.

Excellent lyrics and song. Catchy as well and definitely suited to the times we are in today. The video was great as well with the inventive angles and flow….. Very 60’s.
