|Picking a Winner
Political Parodies For 2012
From pure protest songs to specific endorsements
and critcisms of various presidential candidates,
JJ continues his skillful reinterpretation of
musical iconography by applying pop megahits to
Once a tree-hugging liberal hippie, JJ is
still that, but he's also a fiscally conservative, libertarian activist who uses song and humor to compel better solutions to social injustices.

|Ron Paul, The Downtown Song
Parody of "Downtown" written by Tony Hatch (1964)
New lyrics by JJ Jones
Produced and played by Steve Goodie, Pitch-Perfect Recording
When it's time to elect
A president who'll protect
Your precious liberty, vote -- Ron Paul
When you're uncertain
The economy's hurtin'
And the dollar's weak, vote -- Ron Paul
We all love Obama but he's really just the same
As every other candidate who promised he would change
Aren't we still at war?
Let's bring all the troops back home
And as for sovereign nations, let's leave 'em alone
and vote Ron Paul
He's really not that old -- Ron Paul!
He'd rather pay with gold -- Ron Paul
America really needs you!
Don't get confused
When silly people misuse
The word conservative for Ron Paul
He's totally hip
And lots of liberals flip
In the affirmative for Ron Paul
Sure he's a republican, but don't let labels fool ya
His whole philosophy is not to let the government rule ya
Now that's liberal!
Return to the constitution
OMG that's not short of a revolution for
He'll open up the Fed -- Ron Paul
Drinkin raw milk at bed -- Ron Paul
America really needs you
He knows Americans can set a really good example
By showing the whole world how we can prosper and not trample
on basic freedoms
He'll march through the those DC gates
Wrestle the power from Sam and give it back to the States
Get your butt off the chair
It's time to prove that you care
Wants you to keep you cash
Doesn't care if you're smokin' hash**
Slashing the income tax
Wielding the budget axe
He's done his part, now do yours!
** Actually, I'm sure Dr. Paul would prefer you did not abuse any drug,
but he certainly isn't going to support the government telling you
what to do with your own body!
