Who Needs ‘Em Then?

I hope you enjoy this parody based on Steely Dan’s “Do It Again”.

Who Needs ‘Em Then?
Original words and music “Do It Again” by Walter Becker and Donald Fagen, 1972
Additional lyrics by Wayne A. Schneider, 2014

From a warnin’ you go gunnin’ for illegal sons and daughters
And you fire while they are runnin’ but they watch you at the border
And the Baggers aren’t relaxin’ as they rag out on the street
But the Taxman isn’t taxin’ and their people face defeat, yeah

There’s no facts, Jack, who needs ’em then?
They’ll turn you ’round and ’round
There’s no facts, Jack, who needs ’em then?

Well you know she won’t climb higher and she’ll find a lonely end
She is doomed to be a liar and we’re sure she fears her friends
Though she loves to be the wild one, yet she brings you no new follows
All the time you see her smilin’ you’ll see emptiness and hollow, yeah


Now you swear you’re not a racist, but you’re not an honest man
And we find no fact in basis for that rifle in your hands
Your black pundits make you money so you side with them when able
In a plan that isn’t funny you must put them out on cable, yeah



  1. You truly do the art of parody magnificently, Wayne!

  3. Another instant classic Wayne! You are like the Lennon/McCartney of parody!
