The Tribute Song: We Will Stand with Gov. Walker/ Not Just A Big Fancy Talker

Okay, so Gov. Scott Walker faces some challenges. Nobody likes him, a million Wisconsinites signed a petition to recall him, his former top aide is going to trial on two felony counts of embezzling money from a veterans group, and his campaign finance records show that while he's raised $4.5 million, alot of it looks pretty squirrely: Much of it came through big donors relying on a questionable legal loophole, and more than half came from out of state. But supporter Glen Shulfer wrote him a song! You gotta hear it.

We will stand with Governor Walker.
Because he does what he says; not just a big fancy talker.
We will stand with Governor Walker.
We got to keep moving ahead, all the way, with Governor Walker.

When we faced an uphill climb, with a future not too bright,
there was one man for the time, who was promising to fight.
He would stand up for "us all" when he tamed the status quo.
Now he's standing 10-feet tall from Ashland to Monroe.

We will stand with Governor Walker.
Because he does what he says; not just a big fancy talker.
We will stand with Governor Walker.
We got to keep moving ahead, all the way, with Governor Walker.

He took on the deficit, and asked the union folks to pay
just a teeny-tiny bit, to make it fair in every way.
A balanced budget, he can claim without taxing you and me.
And in the end it wasn't shame, but a total victory.

We will stand with Governor Walker.
Because he does what he says; not just a big fancy talker.
We will stand with Governor Walker.
We got to keep moving ahead, all the way, with Governor Walker.
Oh no we can't go back again.
We got to keep moving ahead with Governor Walker.
Mr. Scott Walker, our Wisconsin Governor.

We are proud of Governor Walker.
We can never, ever, never let him down;
we got to keep him in MAD Town.
We will stand with Governor Walker.
And we're not going back. No way!
We got to keep Governor Walker.
