about

some might misunderstand the lyric but it is a metaphor about lobbyist groups told in the clothing of bo diddley and little richard. no offense to those amazing men. offense is meant for the corrupt systems in place where people ostensibly suppose to do good do bad. an old story with a new beat.

lyrics

Bo Diddley got himself a right wing man
But that right wing man was just too frightening
So Bo Diddley got himself a publicist
Said “hit me with your best media list” …..I want a hit (again)

She said you need Yo Yo Ma
And the national arts orchestra
& get some pictures of kids at the zoo
& honey while you’re at it get new eye-glass frames too … I wanna a hit (again)

And quickly Bo Diddley saw public opinion bend
Then in the middle of this blizzard
With two platinum shovels stood Little Richard
His snowshoes had rhinestone traction
In his blog he wrote “I want a piece of the action” … I wanna hit (again)

What’s it gonna cost me to get this fixed?
I wanna see all of your expert lobbying tricks
You know I’ve got a little reputation
I could keep on knocking ‘till you let me in …I want a hit (again)

Mr. Tutti Fruitti saw public opinion bend
And quickly Little Ritchie was earning dividends again
For sale is every fool, that’s an old business rule

An oil economy still pollutes
Will Paul Schuck’s children all get duped?
Payola’s alive and well
Heads of state appreciate the smell …Who got a hit (again)?
