I'm ninety-five per cent with Bernie, I know cause I took a quiz
And he's for the ninety-nine per cent, and never for big biz,
He's for single payer and social security,
I want Bernie on the ticket, cause he's the one for me.

Chorus: Listen to the jingle, the rumble and the roar,
From the green hills of New England to the far Pacific shore,
Let's confound the pundits and run a great campaign,
And ride into the White House on the Bernie Sanders train.

He's for building bridges, metaphorical and real,
He knows that what this country needs is an up-to-date New Deal.
He's better than most Democrats on foreign policy,
I want Bernie on the ticket, cause he's the one for me.

He's for unions and for coops, he's not the bosses' tool,
He's for equal chances at housing, jobs and schools,
He'll work to stop the predatory prison industry,
I want Bernie on the ticket, cause he's the one for me.
Chorus

He's for regulation, and the tax called Robin Hood,
If you don't insist on perfect, the man looks very good.
He's for equal pay for women and marriage equality,
I want Bernie on the ticket, cause he's the one for me.

He calls himself a socialist and I guess that's pretty brave
But you can't go mincing words when you've got a world to save.
The corporate state is killing us and the honey bee;
I want Bernie on the ticket, cause he's the one for me.
Chorus

He knows the climate's changing, and that humans are to blame,
He won't take money from big oil, so he is naming names.
I sent a check to Bernie; campaigning isn't free.
I want Bernie on the ticket, cause he's the one for me.
Chorus

Bernie's Jingle Bells

lyrics by Leslie Hassberg and Nancy Schimmel      Download printable version (created 1/22/15)


Chorus
Jingle Bells, Bernie tells the truth for all to see,
The rich are getting richer and there's less for you and me,
Jingle Bells, Bernie tells us there's a better way,
Big money out of politics, give everyone their say.

He's dashing through the states, the crowds are on their feet,
If the press ignores him we will Facebook, blog and tweet,
His policies are strong and clear, our future, his concern,
Us volunteers are legion, join the movement, feel the Bern!
(Chorus)
Bernie needs your help to reach Nevada Dems,
So grab your phone and call, and rope in all your friends.
The website tells you how, it's easy and it's fun,
Let's get those caucus voters out 'cause Bernie is the one!

(Chorus)
