I think you are right and it is hilarious.

I'm surprised no one noticed the similarities to this song.

Also Duke Silver, who I now consider somewhat of a genius, posted this thought in another thread that I hadn't considered.

Count me in with the folks who can't get the whole song to play but it seems like some sort of tounge and cheek, throwaway song. Drum machine and all. Mike Cooley is a legend as far as I'm concerned but I can do without hearing all of this one.

I'm not one of those people that can really analyze a song and tell you what it means. Sure I can listen to a song and it might
or might not mean something to me or it could go right over my head and if it did mean something to me, I doubt it would mean
the same to some one else. I do love reading the song of the week just to see what yall think of the different songs. Any ways
there a line that's got me baffled and I was wondering what yall thought.

Depends on if you think it's a little message for fans who were bothered by the RNC gig or not:

What you and me need to think about is where do you and me go from here
But I just don't see any way forward with you needing to think that little hissy fit you threw is why we're having this talk
Cuz see baby there are things in this world bigger than me
There are things in this world bigger than you
Stop crying, baby, stop crying
I'm not mad anymore
Come over here and sit down, turn on the TV, watch whatever you want to watch
Let's forget this ever happened

Hard to make it happen, even harder to love it

So my copy of this song is a 4.1 MB download, runs 3:01, and cuts off rather than fades. As Peggy Lee once asked, "Is that all there is?" I figure so and I'm satisfied with that (though I'd gladly take more).

Two notes about this song.

First, isn't that Patterson's voice doing the falsetto background vocals?

Second, George R. R. Martin is not your bitch. Not that I normally talk like that.
