Sunday Summer Sing Along - Part Eight

“After [4 1/2] hours of debate, a majority of lawmakers determined that we would not be able to get through the full calendar today. And with only two weeks left in the legislative session, they are anxious to resume their work finalizing the budget, taking up overrides, and acting on important legislation and other initiatives."
Statement by the Office of Sen. President Traviglini as to why he the Constitutional Convention without a vote on the Citizen Petition

Since the 2003-2004 Session passed 680 laws, 508 of them in the second year, Porcupine was certain that the 2005-2006 Session must have been exceptionally meaty, since it passed only 465 laws, and only 275 in the second year. An examination of the exhaustive body of new laws passed has inspired this song, Let's Vote on Favorite Things, sung to the tune of 'My Favorite Things' as an examination of the work ethic and priorities of the Legislature.

The Session Has Come To Its Close, And We Ducked Tons
Some Laws Have Been Passed, But Mostly The Small Ones
'Complex' is Known For The Headache It Brings,
So We'll Just Work On Our Favorite Things!

Let’s Honor Basketball, Ditch Ocean Zoning,
Mail Order Wine - Yes, and Cellular Phoning,
Connected Hack Sick Leave Banks Happiness Brings
DiMasi’s House Just Works On Favorite Things!

Mike Ruane’s Pension And Stalking Awareness
Hearings To Find If Baseball Bats Are Careless
Enshrine Taj Mahal For the Song That He Sings,
These are a Few of Our Favorite Things!

Vote Gay Marriage?
Nurses Staffing?
Where We’d Take a Stand?
We Simply Keep Working On Favorite Things
Now November Won’t See Us Canned!

Next week's Grand Finale - Bulger's Lament!

Well, I tried singing this to my wife and she sez she likes the original lyrics better.

Plus she likes Julie Andrews voice better.

What do you expect from a woman that does not care about politics and just votes the way her husband sez?
