Lyrics are as follows:

These ideas so far are nothing to tout

and I don’t mean to single anybody out

But we must pick a weapon to deal with this crisis

and it can’t be “an elevator full of Ray Rices

Well there’s one bomb we have, causes mass blindness

The downside of which is it could blind the pilot

We’d need someone to drop it and turn quickly as well

Who could look the other way that quickly?  Roger Goodell?

Look this isn’t a game, they’re brutal and brash

their business is booming, they’re stockpiling cash

it’s gotta be potent, it’s gotta be big

and, no, it can’t be “Adrian Peterson and a twig

Well if crippling growth and freedom’s the plan

this weapon here is the worst known to man

Obamacare, hmm, I have apprehension

Seems cruel, let me check the Geneva Convention

The debt would crush ’em sir, I assure you I know man

after all it is a weapons-grade entitlement program

Another plan, I tell you I’m into this

We come in from the north and we hit them with stimulus

No, something traditional, a bomber, a pilot

a–we get it, Neil, NFL players are violent

Like an EMP to destroy all their C: drives

Maybe we could send IRS’ top IT guys

The terrorists there are killing their kin

We should ban guns there, they’ll turn their guns in

They’re not paying taxes, their growth is un-strained

Did you guys consider doing a hashtag campaign?

They’re hitting oil, they’re making a killing

we’d stop their growth if we could curb their drilling

Which weapon to do so?  They all sound enticing

I say we, ah heck, let’s just do the Ray Rice thing
