What do you do with a Weaselly Governor?

Ever heard this song?

Now there’s a Wisconsin version. 🙂 Check it out!

The concept, title, and 1st verse were by Mary Watrud, the chorus by Martina Rippon, the crowd-sourced verses by Em Cee, Ryan Wherley, and Dave Rolnick, and the selection and arrangement are by Em Cee.

What do you do with a Weaselly Governor?
(Tune of “What do you do with a Drunken Sailor”)

What do you do with a weaselly governor?
What do you do with a weaselly governor?
What do you do with a weaselly governor?

Er-lie in the morning
Hooray, up we’re rising!
Hooray, up we’re rising!
Hooray, up we’re rising!
Er-lie in the morning

Call him out for lying when his lips are moving (3x) / Er-lie …
Hooray …

Take away his talking points and watch him stammer

Picket his hideaway and watch him stewing

Check him into rehab for his Koch addiction

Send him back to college until he graduates

Make him pay support to the girl he abandoned

Tar & feather him with his own tar sands

Run him out of town on a high-speed railroad

Stuff him into the Keystone Pipeline

Tie him up and throw him down where GTAC’s drilling

Boil him up with sweet manoomin

Tell the world he’s toast and Mary Burke is bacon

Lock him in a room with David Prosser

And that’s what we’ll do with our weaselly governor
That’s what we’ll do with our weaselly governor
That’s what we’ll do with our weaselly governor
Er-lie in the Rising!

A footnote for Wisconsin’s right wing commentators, Capitol Police, and The Press:
The lyrics of this song are a JOKE.

Nobody is actually going to steal anything from the Guv, nor can they make him pay child support, nor will they “tar & feather”. Nobody will do any actual stuffing, tying, throwing, or boiling. Lastly, I know of no person cruel and inhumane enough to lock ANYBODY in a room with David Prosser.

I repeat: the lyrics of this song are meant to be a comedic send-up of the Irish folk song “What do you do with a drunken sailor?”.
