Indiana House Republicans Sing About Missing Democratic Lawmakers

From the good folks at, Indiana House Republicans have discovered an innovative tactic to get their Democratic House counterparts to return to their home state: Singing to them.



74 bring them home to the place they belong, Indiana, not Urbana, take them home 74

Pat Bauer, lost his mind, took his caucus, ran across state lines,

Right to work, PLA’s, bunch other stuff, made them run away.

74 bring them home, to the place they belong, Indiana not Urbana take them home 74

School reform, was our plea rather than debate it, they all chose to flee

When they come back, time will tell, if they don’t, they can go to (slap)

74 bring them home to the place they belong, Indiana, not Urbana, take them home 74

Unemployment, (inaudible — I think it’s, “who steps up?”) we got elected, stop acting like you won,

When they show up, you know who, just like Noah’s ark they come back two by two

74 bring them home to the place they belong, Indiana, not Urbana, take them home 74

I expect the response, “Their singing is what drove us away!”
