Auto-Tune the News: Rent: Too Damn High! Song.

In the future, all political debates will be moderated by a DJ in a spaceship, and the debaters will sing and rap their way to glorious victory. Jimmy McMillan of The Rent Is Too Damn High Party demonstrates this utopian vision with a roaring rendition of his party's eponymous theme. 

LYRICS
I represent "The Rent is Too Damn High" Party.
People working 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week -
Some a third job - why?

The rent is too damn high!
The people I'm here to represent 
can't afford to pay their rent.
'Cause rent is too damn high!
The people being laid off right now
can't eat breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
Only a governor, like a father of a house
can put everything in control.
The bottom line is, the economic state of emergency
is the way to go!
To go, go, go, go!

This will reduce the cost, you cut the rent down
you cut the taxes down!
To give business owners a chance to hire people!
To give business owners a chance to hire people!
That is it, nothing else to be said!
End of subject, there's nothing else to talk about.
Some say, I'm a one issue candidate.
But it all boils down to one thing!
What? RENT!

Is too damn high!
The people I'm here to represent 
can't afford to pay their rent.
'Cause rent is too damn high!
The people being laid off right now
can't eat breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
Only a governor, like a father of a house
can put everything in control.
The bottom line is, the economic state of emergency
is the way to go, The way to go!
To go, go, go, go!

Rent is too damn high!
The rent is too damn high. (too damn high!)
Rent is too DAMN high!
The rent is too damn high. (too damn high!)
Too damn high, too damn high, too damn high!
Rent is too DAMN high!
The rent is too damn high.

Closing statement...
As a karate expert,
I will not talk about anyone up here.
Listen!
Someone's child's stomach just growled.
Did you hear it? Did you did you hear it?
Gotta listen like me.
Because our children can't afford to live anywhere.
Once again, why?
You said it - - -
The rent is too damn high!
