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

“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.

I don’t like politicians too, but I’m sorry to say that I don’t like this song either.
It is a very rare case for me to not like one of your songs, becaue in general I love your music and style very much, as a club member and a big fan.
But, I must say that this song is not so enjoyable to listen to, and may be skipped by me when listening to the whole LP.
The other two songs you released so far (janitor Joe and Summer rain) are great and lovely.

Such a fantastic song for the times! Wow, I just love the lyrics. They are so well placed to make the point so clear. Instrumentation and vocals is top notch but it’s just what we expect from MLT. It is satire at it’s best.

Hi Mona, Hi Lisa.. another great song in this sea of ​​purely commercial and repetitive songs, many of them made by computer programs.. Your song is fun and satirical with a touch of the 30s or 40s.. maybe “boogie woogie” more slow… mixed with blues .. Iloved it .. thanks for posting the lyrics .. now i understand everything, and there is nothing more to add to the definition of a politician.. by the way .. I want to thank you for being the inspiration for me to try to learn English again., Stay groovy and safe dear and precious girls. Thanks.. for all..
