Put up your dukes, Mitt.

You can download a professionally-recorded, kick-ass version of the song here: http://davidrovics.bandcamp.com/

Lyric:

A corporation doesn't have to feed a family
A corporation cannot be unemployed
A corporation can't get Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Heart disease, brain tumors or hemroids
A corporation is set up with one motive
And that is not to judge what's right or fair
A corporation's only goal is making money
That's why a corporation doesn't care
A corporation can never sense the breeze upon its skin
Never know what it's like to miss a meal
A corporation doesn't have to worry
Because a corporation cannot feel

A corporation can never know the beauty
It cannot wake up in a grove of ancient trees
It only sees a hundred thousand dollars
And some mill jobs it can ship out overseas
A corporation can't care for a child
Sickened by a toxic oil spill
A corporation only stands to profit
From interest on the loan for the hospital bill
A corporation never goes to funerals
Of any victims who may die along the way
A corporation cannot feel remorse
A corporation never really has to pay
But Mitt Romney said it so it must be true
Corporations are people, too

A corporation doesn't have a mouth
But it often has many a mouthpiece
A corporation cannot shoot a gun
But it can employ an army of police
A corporation can never go to prison
No matter how horrible the crime
But a corporation can send lobbyists to Congress
To make sure more of us are doing time
A corporation doesn't feel the pain
Of a child raised by a TV set
And the corporations will just get bailed out
If their clients fall too deeply into debt
But the Supreme Court said it so it must be true
Corporations are people, too

Corporations can't be rounded up and shot
A corporation can't be tortured through the night
A corporation can't be blown up by an IED
A corporation cannot ever see the sight
A corporation can't be killed by a tsunami
A corporation cannot drown beneath the tide
A corporation doesn't care who wins the war
If they can just sell weapons to both sides
A corporation exists only to make money
A corporation never questions why
A corporation doesn't suffer consequences
Because a corporation doesn't live and doesn't die
But the Congress wills it and so it must be true
Corporations are people, too
