You may talk as quickly as Moyle
Or favor the Ruschean pause
If you've got ideas that can fix things
Then you can come here and make laws.
Don't think that change will come easy
Or you'll think the outcome is right
But if you don't like how it's going
You might want to bring your own fight.
That's how it works in the Statehouse
Farmers, biz folks, retirees
Doctors, cops, lawyers and realtors
Compromise, jockey, appease.
The lawmaking often is messy
And lives are affected each day
The voters decide who comes down here
So make sure that you have your say.
