Paul Carr has written 3 witty parodies about big money in politics.  He and his trio performed them all on September 28, 2013, at the University Temple United Methodist Church, as a warm-up for Ashley Sanders’ lively presentation.

Here’s a YouTube of all three:  the old MTA song by the Kingston Trio (“Lost forever ‘neath the streets of Boston, he’s the man who never returned”) “Good News,” and “Government for Sale or Rent” (a takeoff on Roger Miller’s “King of the Road”).

And here are the lead sheets for two of the songs:
