I'm doing work on a computer with no sound card and so haven't been able to listen. I assume it's satire. Would I get the jokes by looking up the lyrics without the tune?

You will not find the humor, and could as easily deny merit in the words if you read them or heard them.

Edit: I'll save you the time and effort and post your response.

None of that is true. Also the chorus and verses seem to be a mash up that was not well thought out.

Koldie;

Your gauge of my views makes the salte-o-meter look accurate.

It's about the IRS scandal. The joke is that the hard drive failures were 'just chance'.

As satire, its not bad. I liked the bit where they referenced the Hilary Clinton book, and the book comes up as a pop-up, and the singer reaches over to the little x box, clicks it, and it goes away. That was a nice cute 'meta' touch.
