Remy updates the Alanis Morissette hit with a certain senior senator from California in mind.

Approximately 2 minutes. 

A Senator lady
Got the news one day
The country's being spied on
by the NSA

So she went out defending
on each TV set
but when she found out she'd been snooped on
she got all upset

And isn't it ironic?
I mean, don't you think?

It's like you're at Chris Brown's
and there's punch in the fridge

or if The Bachelor 
passed a geography quiz

Learning Ted Kennedy
happened to be good at bridge
And who would have thought?
It figures.

Senator, this may surprise you
and the irony bites
but Congresspeople ain't the only ones
with 4th Amendment rights

It's like a minimalist
who does their laundry with All
or if Woody Allen liked to watch
Kids in the Hall

it's like FDR
got locked in a Honda Accord

a cheap healthcare plan
that you just can't afford

If Oscar Pistorius
really hated The Doors

and who would have thought?
It figures.

I heard the government
is sneaking up on you
Life has a funny, funny way
of calling you out
calling you out.
