WASHINGTON ­­­— That Cruz-I-am

That Cruz-I-am

I do not like

That Cruz-I-am.

Do you like Obamacare?

I do not like it, Cruz I am.

I do not like Obamacare.

I will not fund it, here or there.

I will not fund it anywhere.

I run against Obamacare.

I run against it, Cruz I am.

Would you fund it in the House?

Run against Bill Clinton’s spouse?

I would not fund it in the House.

Bring it on, Bill Clinton’s spouse.

Filibuster with Mike Lee?

Bring down the economy?

I’ll be POTUS — you will see.

Come and join my Tea Party.

Not with Mike Lee.

Not my GOP.

Not with this House.

Not while I grouse.

I put the Senate in a box.

Mitch McConnell — he’s out-foxed.

I’m ready for that big White House.

I’ll decimate Bill Clinton’s spouse.

I do not like Dems here or there.

I do not like them anywhere.

A train wreck! A train wreck!

Could you, would you, wreck this train?

Mr. Harvard Law School brain?

Watch me! Watch me!

Wreck this train.

Obamacare will be my gain!

My colleagues hate me — I don’t care.

Harry Reid — tear out your hair.

I can stand there all night long.

Watch me, I am never wrong.

You do not like it.

So you say.

Try it, try it,

and you may.

Say!

I like Obamacare!

I do, I like it, Cruz I am.

It will get me out of Texas!

So I’ll argue that it wrecks us.

I do so like Obamacare.

It will get me everywhere!

Thank you.

Thank you,

Cruz I am.
