For ten hours, Chris Dodd held the floor
And swore he'd go for hundreds more
He'd talk unto infinity
To block Telco immunity
Upholding there the rule of law
By action of his mighty jaw
No budget bills or Xmass break
For Dodd would speak and speak and speak
So finally did Harry Reid,
With aching head, at last concede.
He pushed off FISA 'til next year.
So now for Dodd we give a cheer!
Chris Dodd who proved his word he'd keep
And showed that sometimes talk ain't cheap
(Let's hope he still will pay the cost
Next month when Iowa is lost)
