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

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 !

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.

This is the first that I’ve heard of you: I like the theatrics and your on target message. I also appreciate being able to see the lyrics to help me understand this song better. Thank you!

“My Shopping list confirms my expertise” such a prefect line. The whole song is genius. No hyperbole. Music is wonderful too. Instant classic. ????????

I Bought Myself A Politician should become an anthem or at least a theme for the comming
World War between the sane and the insane.

I have no words to describe how I am satisfied with this song and the video. 
Simply amazing, really outstanding!! The video is a fine piece of art, indeed!
And I can’t stop listening to this song!!!

This song took me back to the sixties (that’s the sisters’ goal, isn’t it?). I saw in it the harsh irony of ‘I’m the Taxman’ navigating on the beat of ‘Your mother should know’. The Beatles influence is clear and wonderfully flavorful, the video is perfect and you can enter it for the next Grammy Awards. Keep up with your beautiful work!

As a new listener still catching up on your background, I must say that this song fits your brand very well. I enjoy the music style and the hook is set right from the start. Your lyrics are both whimsical yet troubling because they are not far from the truth. Keep having fun! Seeing your happiness and smiling faces are an addictive habit we all need during these times.
