Plutocrat (The Ballad of Bruce Rauner) Credit: https://www.youtube.com/user/mifarmer0 LYRICS: Some rich guys buy fancy cars Some spend their money on old guitars Some go in for private planes and boats Well, I like houses -- I own nine And I drink $6000 wine And I'm tryin' hard to buy your November votes Yeah, my wristwatch cost me eighteen bucks I wear Carhartt clothes when I hunt for ducks And I even drive around in a beat-up van But I'm a straight-up, blood-suckin' billionaire Who hates payin' taxes for Medicare And I bank in the Cayman Islands anytime I can CHORUS So, Springfield, get out the welcome mat What this state needs is a plutocrat A slashin', burnin', union-bustin' guy I'll hammer and shake that capitol dome Like it's a grandma stuck in a nursing home Hey, grandma, it's time to say goodbye VERSE 2 Well, I'm mighty proud of one thing I did Tryin' to educate my suburban kid I had Arne Duncan lend me a helping hand He took my call without hesitatin' Then my kid got a spot at Walter Payton And I gave that school 250 grand I want charter schools in every town where the kids are poor and black or brown You know I've even got a school named after me And I could have sent my own kid there But I'm a wealthy man, and it's only fair That her school be largely white and bourgeoisie CHORUS VERSE 3 Now I know it's become the latest craze But I try not to talk about marryin' gays Social issues bring my numbers down Same is true for reproductive rights I don't want to pick any needless fights I'll be a blank slate until I win that crown I've got my own economic plan But like HG Wells' "Invisible Man" The details . . . well, they're mighty hard to see And I do my best to avoid the stage If they want me to talk about the minimum wage 'Cause I’d rather have those people work for free
