My Election Canvass Playlist

Now playing…

This song is dedicated to all the lawyers who are on the election canvass floor right now… pañero, pañera… it looks like this is going to be an all-nighter…it’s okay. 

When you’re getting weary,
Just remember our prairie,
Este, ehek, our prayer and be cheery…
“The great ordinances
of the Constitution
do not establish and divide fields
of black and white.
Even the more specific of them
are found to terminate
in a penumbra
shading gradually
from one extreme to the other….
“(H)owever we may disguise it
by veiling words,
we do not and cannot
carry out the distinction
between the legislative and executive action
with mathematical precision
and divide the branches
into watertight compartments,
were it ever desirable to do so,
which I am far from believing that it is,
or that the Constitution requires.”
(Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes in Springer vs. Philippine Islands.).

and here’s that song

Here we are

 in a roomful of strangers,

Standing in the glare

 where your eyes couldn’t see me

Well, I have to follow you

Though you did not want me to.

But that won’t stop my lovin’ you

I can’t stay away

Blamin’ it all

on the nights in Congress

Singin’ objections,

Singin’ them straight to the canvass

Blamin’ it all

on the nights in Congress

Singin’ them motions

To that crazy, crazy town.

Now in my place

There are so many others

Standin’ in the line;

How long will they stand between us?

Well, I have to follow you

Though you didn’t want me to.

But that won’t stop my lovin’ you

I can’t stay away

Blamin’ it all

on the nights in Congress

Singin’ objections,

Singin’ them straight to the canvass

Blamin’ it all

on the nights in Congress

Singin’ them motions

To that crazy, crazy town.

I will wait,

even if it takes forever;

I will wait,

even if it takes a lifetime.

Somehow I feel inside

You never ever left my side.

Make it like it was before

Even if it takes a lifetime, takes a lifetime.

Blamin’ it all

on the nights in Congress

Singin’ objections,

Singin’ them straight to the canvass.

Blamin’ it all

 on the nights in Congress

Singin’ them motions

To that crazy, crazy town. (and if you’re really sleepy, the video is embedded below the soundcloud pod, scroll down)
