ELEGY FOR THE COURT – A Parody | Marcus Bales & Don Caron

posted in: Political Parody | 0

The Supreme Court has endorsed election interference by engaging in it. They are delaying the cases in criminal courts to give Trump a chance to win the election and make all the indictments and court proceedings go away. The Supreme Court, as it was designed and implemented is now dead. This is a parody of the song “A Cottage for Sale.”
Executive Producers Don Caron and Jerry Pender

LYRICS for Elegy
By Marcus Bales

Our Supreme Court was great,
But the bloom is all gone.
It’s bought and corrupted,
A political pawn.
I’m sick to my stomach
As they carry on
With justice for sale.

Where once high thoughts lifted
Them over the fray
They now price vacations
And swank Cabernet.
Recuse themselves? Never!
They go for the pay
Of justice for sale

Once dignity, and judgment,
and thought were all high
Instead now they think
what the next bribe will buy.

The whole institution is sick at the core —
We used to have honor and duty before,
But now they have hung up a sign on the door
Justice for sale.

About the Original Song

“A Cottage for Sale” is a popular song. The music was composed by Willard Robison, and the lyrics were written by Larry Conley. The song was first published in 1929, and over 100 performers have recorded versions of “A Cottage for Sale.”The first versions of the song were released by The Revelers in January 1930 and Bernie Cummins with the New Yorker Orchestra in March 1930.

The song uses an empty cottage as a metaphor of a failed relationship or the end of a long relationship perhaps in death.

Our little dream castle
With every dream gone
Is lonely and silent
The shades are all drawn
And my heart is heavy
As I gaze upon
A cottage for sale

The lawn we were proud of
Is waving in hay
Our beautiful garden has
Withered away.
Where we planted roses
The weeds seem to say…
A cottage for sale

Through every window
I see your face
But when I reach (the) window
There’s (only) empty space

The key’s in the mailbox
The same as before
But no one is waiting for me anymore
The end of our story
Is there on the door
A cottage for sale.
