DUmmie FUnnies 11-15-11 ("Occupy-ers! WE HAVE OUR ANTHEM")
DUmmie FUnnies ^ | November 15, 2011 | DUmmies and Charles Henrickson

Posted on 11/14/2011 10:45:40 PM PST by Charles Henrickson

Why hasn't the Occupy Movement captured the imagination of the American public yet? Why do the righteous protesters seem like just a bunch of spoiled college kids with free-floating angst, taking off a semester to hang out and hook up in tents? Why has Occupy Wall Street been such an epic fail so far?

Well, it must be because they have lacked . . . AN ANTHEM! Yes, that's what they need! And now they have it! Problem solved. As we see and hear in this THREAD, "Occupy-ers! WE HAVE OUR ANTHEM."

So without further ado, let us tune our ears to the sound of the DUmmies, in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, who smells a parody coming on, is in the [brackets]:

Occupy-ers! WE HAVE OUR ANTHEM

[All right! Now we're cookin' with GAS! Now this thing's gonna TAKE OFF! An ANTHEM! Just what we need! This will turn the corner!]

Sorry for shouting but I'm so excited. This is beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

[DUmmie Remember Me links to a song called "We Are the Many," by some Bob Dylan/Pete Seeger wannabe called Makana. I'm sorry to report, though, that this "anthem" is pitiful, pitiful, pitiful. Boring rhyme scheme, clumsy lyrics, leftist cliches, enervating music. Other than that, it's a real winner. Look and listen for yourself. Here is the link to the VIDEO, and here are the lyrics:]

We Are The Many

Ye come here, gather 'round the stage
The time has come for us to voice our rage
Against the ones who've trapped us in a cage
To steal from us the value of our wage

From underneath the vestiture of law
The lobbyists at Washington do gnaw
At liberty, the bureaucrats guffaw
And until they are purged, we won't withdraw

We'll occupy the streets
We'll occupy the courts
We'll occupy the offices of you
Till you do
The bidding of the many, not the few

Our nation was built upon the right
Of every person to improve their plight
But laws of this Republic they rewrite
And now a few own everything in sight

They own it free of liability
They own, but they are not like you and me
Their influence dictates legality
And until they are stopped we are not free

We'll occupy the streets
We'll occupy the courts
We'll occupy the offices of you
Till you do
The bidding of the many, not the few

You enforce your monopolies with guns
While sacrificing our daughters and sons
But certain things belong to everyone
Your thievery has left the people none

So take heed of our notice to redress
We have little to lose, we must confess
Your empty words do leave us unimpressed
A growing number join us in protest

We occupy the streets
We occupy the courts
We occupy the offices of you
Till you do
The bidding of the many, not the few

You can't divide us into sides
And from our gaze, you cannot hide
Denial serves to amplify
And our allegiance you can't buy

Our government is not for sale
The banks do not deserve a bail
We will not reward those who fail
We will not move till we prevail

We'll occupy the streets
We'll occupy the courts
We'll occupy the offices of you
Till you do
The bidding of the many, not the few

We'll occupy the streets
We'll occupy the courts
We'll occupy the offices of you
Till you do
The bidding of the many, not the few

We are the many
You are the few

[Now here is a new and improved version, by yours truly, the wag tailoring the doggerel:

WE ARE THE MOONBATS by Makaka
Tune: "We Are the Many" by Makana

Ye come here, gather in a throng
The time has come for us to write a song
Against the ones who've done us . . . something wrong
So pardon me while I put down my bong

From Underground the Democratics flock
The activists at Wall Street now do occ-
-upy the park, though freeper types may mock
And yet still we now fill a city block

We'll urinate the streets
We'll defecate the parks
We'll populate and copulate and screw
Till you do
The bidding of the moonbats on DU

Our hatred is rage against the Right
Toward every person who induces fright
The lousy Free Republic trolls we spite
And all the evil rich guys who are white

They own us all just like a lemon tree
And other things that rhyme with "B" and "D"
Their affluence provokes our jealousy
Now until when we shop we get stuff free

We'll urinate the streets
We'll defecate the parks
We'll populate and copulate and screw
Till you do
The bidding of the moonbats on DU

We must pay for your apple cream cheese buns
And from our wallets out the money runs
But everything belongs to everyone
To charge for things is not so very fun

So take heed of our whining and our stress
We have no arguments, we must confess
Our common sense has left us, as you guessed
But mental numbness won't stop our protest

We urinate the streets
We defecate the parks
We populate and copulate and screw
Till you do
The bidding of the moonbats on DU

You cannot tell our gals from guys
And of our guys, they're mostly high
Our grungy hippies typify
That we're collegians, I won't lie

That whiff of odor in the air
The clothes we started with we wear
We will not shampoo stringy hairs
We will not bathe like billionaires

We'll urinate the streets
We'll defecate the parks
We'll populate and copulate and screw
Till you do
The bidding of the moonbats on DU

We'll urinate the streets
We'll defecate the parks
We'll populate and copulate and screw
Till you do
The bidding of the moonbats on DU

We are the moonbats
We are DU ]

Oh boy this is a sweet sound right here! The Occupier's anthem, sounds perfect to me!

[It's got a good beat, and it's easy to dance to. I give it a 99%.]

Share it on your Facebook wall

[OccupyFacebookWallStreet]

awesome song...awesome action for one individual!!!

[OWSome!!!]

Does every protest song have to be wimpy folk music? Don't get me wrong, I love the message and I love the Occupy movement but I can't listen to this.

[Everybody's a music critic, eh? LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]

It may be wimpy folk music, but it's not too bad.

[Thanks for that ringing endorsement. I'm sure Makana will want to put that blurb on his album cover: "It may be wimpy folk music, but it's not too bad."]

Even without clicking the anthem link, it’s a pithy protest song, and I can only imagine the nerve-wrenching music.

_______________________________________________________

While there was some fun music from the Hippy days, much of it was mindless and boing drivel.
Hippies were mostly a combination of social misfits, sprinkled with a few clever young people having a party and making songs.

The Oh We Stink crowd is much of the same, but the trashy byproduct of the Hippy movement.
Most of them have no clue as to what they are protesting.

GAG! I couldn't make it past the first verse.
(coffee doesn't taste so good the 2nd time you swallow it)

There. Now that my stomach is settled, I've got some ready-made 'anthems' for them.
Just so they pay the Royalties, that is ;-)

Huh? What? The last song doesn't belong? Sure it does.
The 'occupiers' have so many diseases their, 'Boots Are Scootin', all day long to the nearest porta-john.

And Queen's song belongs too, just insert Losers for Champions, modify another word or two and you got an anthem.

Note to the new Bob Dylan: nothing more than three verses nitwit. And keep it simple with 3 chords and follow the I, IV, V rule. And SHORT, 5:25 is too long asswipe. Oh. And lose the fricken Capo.

(I prefer the Key of E, like 'The Boss', but that's just me. Clapton likes A, and BB King does 'mostly' B or Bb)

This topic and the DUmmie professor who thinks the prosperity gap is too large between the 65 & older and 35 and younger were the topics on KLBJ in Austin yesterday. There was one occupy Austin DUmmie who called in and said the older generation needs to “share their wealth” with the youth of America.

From Underground the Democratics flock

Far be it from me to correct the master, but for the most part, the DUmmies aren't flocking out there. In the long-standing tradition of DUAC, they're claiming solidarity and support, but from behind their keyboards in mommy's basement or attic.

Can I add Rammstein’s “Ich Will”

It is in German, but as you can see from the translation, it is appropriate
__________

I want

I want you to trust me
I want you to believe me
I want to feel your eyes
I want to control every heartbeat

I want to hear your voices
I want to disturb the peace
I want you to see me well
I want you to understand me

I want your fantasy
I want your energy
I want to see your hands
I want to go down in applause

Do you see me?
Do you understand me?
Do you feel me?
Do you hear me?
Can you hear me?
(We hear you)
Can you see me?
(We see you)
Can you feel me?
(We feel you)
I don’t understand you

I want

We want you to trust us
We want you to believe everything from us
We want to see your hands
We want to go down in applause - yeah

Can you hear me?
(We hear you)
Can you see me?
(We see you)
Can you feel me?
(We feel you)
I don’t understand you

Can you hear us?
(We hear you)
Can you see us?
(We see you)
Can you feel us?
(We feel you)
We don’t understand you

I want

Well, heavy metal is one way to get rid of hippies.

Maybe the cities should set up some nice boig speakers and blast some Slayer at the Occupiers. Nothing like a little heavy metal to kill a mellow buzz :-)

The phrasing of the lyrics is AWFUL. The words are painfully manipulated to (somewhat) rhyme... no flow at all.

Somebody wasn’t paying attention in Music 101 class.

Oh, and the message is pretty FUnnie, too.

Too long, too wordy, and too derivative. A shorter more direct protest song with music along the lines of "Louie, Louie" would be more effective.

"Oh well, rich people, rich people, oh oh whoah, give us you money, yeah, yeah, yeah,,yeah, yeah,.... oh well a rich people, rich people, give us your dough."

I write music as a second job. Although that is not my day job, as the owner of a music hall I am around a lot of songwriters.

When I read the lyrics above, it seemed to have the same lyrical phrasing as, say, a jumping bean on crack.

I didn’t want to give the video a hit, so I will take your word for it.

And the lyrics? The very first phrase is “Ye come here”? Please.

Last line in first verse is “To steal from us the value of our wage”? Yeah I’m like really hooked from then on.

I could have written something better in 10 minutes with Rhymezone.

Based on this OWS VIDEO another OWS anthem could be "Defecated to the One I Love" to the tune of "Dedicated to the One I Love" by the Shirelles.

OT but now I know what the KOmmies experienced at the Stratosphere chocolate fountain in Las Vegas a few years ago. On Monday I went to the Golden Corral and they had a new chocolate fountain there. I took a couple of strawberries and placed each on a stick and stuck them into the chocolate fountain. What impressed me was despite completely covering the strawberries in liquid chocolate, it quickly solidified with no dripping. Also I loved the taste. I consider this the mainstreaming of chocolate fountains into American society. Check out the St. Louis area. Perhaps you have Golden Corrals there with chocolate fountains. Also your area, bcsco.

I will. I don’t get to Rockford that often. I’s over 35 miles north and I don’t move about that much. But Julie is there most days so she can check it out for a meal. You missed it by a day. Her boss was in and took her and another store manager to lunch. I’d have suggested Golden Corral had I known...

Kudos on the re-write.

I would point out to Occupy purists that The Declaration Of Independence was also edited so there's no reason to take umbrage at this undeniably more perfect anthem.
