Monday Music: Rickie Lee Jones, Have You Had Enough?

Rickie Lee Jones collaborated with the Squirrel Nut Zippers to create something new from that group’s Put a Lid on It. The result is Have You Had Enough?

The song is hard to find on the Web, and has mostly been adapted for use with particular, local political campaigns across America. I’ve reduced the size of the video to obscure the campaign for which the video above was intended, so that the embedded recording emphasizes the song without a particular political message.

Enjoy.

Have you had enough of hypocrisy?
Have you had enough of the spending spree?
Have you had enough?
Does it make you want to scream and shout?

Have you had enough of the rubber stamps?
Have you had enough of the wire taps?
If you’ve had enough, then it’s time to throw the rascals out!

We’ve let them take the test too long
They’ve gotten all the answers wrong
No plan, no shame, no oversight
Now’s the time to put it right!

Have you had enough, cause they’re all corrupt?
Have you had enough of being divvied up?
If you’ve had enough, then it’s time to throw the rascals out!

Well, do what’s right and spread the word
It’s time to make our voices heard
You cast your vote it don’t cost a dime
Sittin’ it out will be a crime

I’ve had enough, and it’s time to throw the rascals out!
