(A 2012 version of the Wonderful Town classic)
With the rest of the states either solidly red or solidly blue,
the election will be decided by nine or ten swing states.
Why oh why oh why oh?
Why did I ever leave Ohio?
Why did I locate where, since it's no swing state,
Pollsters don't trouble to track?
Zero is my vote's weight.
Reason to vote? That's what I lack.
Oh why oh why oh did I leave Ohio?
Maybe I better go O-H-I-O,
Where I could have my vote back.
