Meebus and the M.T.A.

Fellow Members of the Rights and Justice Group,

These are the times that try men's souls. In the course of our nation's history, the people of Boston have rallied bravely whenever the rights of men have been threatened. Today, a new crisis has arisen. The law firm of Malefactor, Tyrannos, and Angst, better known as the M.T.A., is levying a burdensome crisis on the population in the form of never-ending litigation. Citizens, hear me out! This could happen to you!

(Eight bar guitar, banjo introduction)

Well, let me tell you of the story of a man named Meebus on a tragic and fateful day.
He put a summons in his pocket, picked the judge and jury, went to ride on the M.T.A.

Well, did he ever return? No, he never returned and his fate is still unlearned.
(What a pity! Poor ole Meebus. Shame and scandal.
He may ride forever. Just like Paul Revere.)
He may slide forever 'neath the grief of judgments.
He's the man who never reformed.

Meebus handed in his motion at the Suffolk County Courthouse and he changed for a Federal Claim.
When he got there the clerk told him, "One more procedure."
Meebus couldn't shake off those chains.


Now, all night long Meebus dives through the motions, crying, "What will become of me?!!
How can I find time to see my shrink in Braintree or my Rabbi in Roxbury?"


His daughter goes down to the Middlesex Courthouse every day at a quarter past two,
And through the metal detector she slides Meebus a sandwich as the briefs come rumblin' through.


Now, you citizens of Boston, don't you think it's a scandal how the people have to pay and pay?
Fight unfair procedures! Fight for rights and justice!
Get poor Meebus off the M.T.A.


He's the man who never reformed.
He's the man who never reformed.
Ain't you Meebus?
