Telethon Protest Songs

by a Committed Pity-Buster

"Buster's Battle Hymn"
(Sing to the tune of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic")

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the ending of the 'thon.
We will gain respect and dignity when Jerry-boy is gone.
We are sick of pity tactics and this money-grabbing con.
Our truth is marching on!


Glory, glory, hallelujah.
MDA will try and fool ya.
We know better and we'll school ya.
Our truth is marching on!


MDA gives perks and salaries that really make us choke.
Client benefits and research are becoming quite a joke.
How much longer will they treat us just as simple-minded folk?
Our day is marching on!


We will fight against this travesty until we make them see,
that a telethon of pity is a jail to folks like me.
If we're such a mighty nation, why can't all of us be free?
As we go marching on!


"Jerry, Jerry"

(Sing to the tune of "Daisy, Daisy")

Jerry, Jerry answer us if you dare.
The cash you take in, we want to know goes where?
You can't put us off forever, your stories aren't that clever.
You make hearts bleed, for MDA greed.
And say it's all for your kids!
