Happy Democrats,


Scrappy Democrats:


Triumph in upstate New York!


Plucky Democrats,


Lucky Democrats,


Laughing and popping the cork.







Win with Medicare,


Spin with Medicare—


Fear into ballot-box gold.


Plea for Medicare,


Key for Medicare:


Ev'ryone's gonna get old!







Sad Republicans,


Mad Republicans,


Thought they could split us in half.


Bold Republicans


Told Republicans,


"This is the way!" (What a laugh!)







New requirements,


True: Requirements


Fine if you've turned 55.


Or requirements


(More requirements!)


Lurk there to eat you alive.







Great for selfishness,


Bait for selfishness:


Toss all the kids overboard!


Only selfishness—


Lonely selfishness—


Lets the young oxen be gored.







Flustered citizens


Mustered citizens,


Came to the polls in a huff.


Worried citizens


Hurried citizens,


Said to Paul Ryan, "Enough!"







Brand-new confidence,


Grand new confidence,


Look at that spring in their step!


Spry with confidence,


High with confidence:


Here's a fresh Democrat rep!







Happy Democrats,


Scrappy Democrats:


Victory! Raise high the cup!


Plucky Democrats,


Lucky Democrats—


How can they screw this one up?
