Give us endless wars

On foreign shores

And lots of Chinese stuff

“Blaming you” refers to you, Mom and Dad, if you heartlessly cast your vote for Mitt Romney.

Never mind that it’s one of those songs in which the lyrics don’t fit the phrasing, so the singers trip over themselves to get several syllables onto a single note. Maybe Mr. Goodby didn’t focus much on iambic pentameter back at Harvard.
