The US Government Shutdown Explained In Simple, Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air Theme Song Form


Feel free to sing along with the assistance of the Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air jingle playing in the background. Or don’t. Either way…

Now this is a story all about how
The government got twist-turned upside down
I’d like to take a minute if you have one to spare
I’ll tell you how everything got shutdown because of Obamacare

In Washington, D.C., rarely praised
Lives the polarizing president of the United States
Hanging out, creating concepts some call bull
And all trying to solve problems, causing a Republican & Democrat duel
When a bunch of congress members that are “trying to do good”
Started disagreeing over where each side stood
They got in one huge argument and eventually declared
“SHUT IT DOWN!” but nobody really cared

The House tried to revise but Senate wouldn’t adhere
The spending plans are different & Obamacare makes Republicans jeer
If anything I could say that we should probably be scared
But I thought, ‘Nah, forget it’ – the whole world’s a nightmare’

Senate rejected the house again so now we await
As these two sides sit at a stalemate
Just keep checking Twitter
If news breaks it’ll be there
