Pryin' Eyes (Political Parody)

(to the tune of “Lyin’ Eyes”)
by Brent Johnson

Modern politicians are a strange breed
They will be your friend, if only for a while
For deceit and misdirection are their main creed
They will ruin your life, but always with a smile

They swear an oath unto the Constitution
They promise, under God, that they’ll be true
But we know every day what they’ll be doin’
Taking from the many and giving to the few

Our world is like a jungle filled with danger
At least, that’s what we’re told so we’ll comply
With unfree and oppressive regulations
‘Til enough of us are fed up and we cry

You can’t hide your pryin’ eyes
‘Cause we know all about your spies
We’ve had enough of your endless lies
There ain’t no way to hide your
Pryin’ eyes


Late at night, you’re hanging out alone now
And you’d like someone one to join you for a bit
So you think about whose company you want now
Then you walk into your office and you sit

You call a friend to have a conversation
You are talking on the phone for quite a while
Till you hear a sound that means someone’s recordin’
And your thinkin’ privacy’s gone out of style

You can’t hide your pryin’ eyes
‘Cause we know all about your spies
We’ve had enough of your endless lies
There ain’t no way to hide your
Pryin’ eyes


In a country that was born of revolution
Upon land in a republic of the free
It’s amazing that we don’t see the solution
To our public servants seeking tyranny

When our governments refuse to do their duty
When elected representatives defy
Then a free state is truly a thing of beauty
Where the people get to throw away the lie

Let me offer you a piece of good advice then
And a few degrees of good and common sense
Better take these as sincere words to the wise, friend
Your oppressive ways are coming to an end

You can’t hide your pryin’ eyes
‘Cause we know all about your spies
We’ve had enough of your endless lies
There ain’t no way to hide your
Pryin’ eyes

There ain’t no way to hide your
Pryin’ eyes

Soon we will poke out your
Pryin’ eyes

Hmm hm hm hm hmm hmm
