The Illinois tradition of farming, was built by the settlers of olde …
Hay baling was a forte they mastered, they were skilled using haywire we’re told.
And today in the dark bowels of Springfield, haywire is still in great use.
Springfield’s a Haywire Outfit, practicing citizen abuse.
Since abuse is not highly favored, folks have been leaving the state.
Each year a net hundred thousand, escape our looming, sad fate.
But for you the remaining survivors, who are planning to just stick it out,
let’s focus on the problem we’re having, and create a nice, healthy rout.
Vote out that Haywire Outfit, that puts the taxpayer last,
and save the Olde Land of Lincoln, from its sordid and criminal past.
From that we’ll show those settlers, and proud to let them know,
we’re worthy of all their efforts, but the haywire has got to go.
