To the tune of "MTA" by the Kingston Trio
Oh let me tell you a story 'bout a government shutdown
It was some tragic and news-filled days
When the Congressmen couldn't get their act together
and we all got some furlough days!
Oh did they ever return?
No, they never returned
And their state is still unlearned.
They may rest forever in a state of shut down
They're the Feds that never returned.
