The class of JUS394 CyberPolitics did it…. sung the complaint song of the year, today, at around 12:30pm at Student Service Lawn!

Video clips and photos from the event will be posted online soon. Stay tune!

Here is the complete lyrics of the song for you to enjoy.

:::

on politics

We don’t need no higher taxes,
We don’t need no gov control
They educate us with their rhetoric
They implicate us with their roles
Hey! Partisan!…leave us citz alone
All in all, we’re just a nother vote on the wall 2x

We don’t need no pork-barrel spending
We don’t need no recession blows
They lower our wages and increase the spending
They raid our houses with conforming flows
Hey! Senators!…leave our cents alone
All in all, we’re just a nother vote on the wall 2x

We don’t need no depression makings
We don’t need no inflation pros
They fight the war in search for oil
They cohort the country for their money growth
Hey! Congress!…leave our bills alone
All in all, we’re just a nother vote on the wall 2x

on ASU

We don’t need no tuition increase
$1200 dollars is a lot of dough
We pay a ton to park on campus
Give us a break (now) President Crow
Hey!  President! Leave our wallets alone!
All in all we’re just another check in the bank 2x

Parking and meters are too expensive
The cost of food is way too much
Books are just a waste of money
There is too much boring homework
Hey! Professors leave us all alone…
All in all we’re just another grade in the book  2x

Our advisors are hard to reach
The wait to see them is irritating
You have to sign up to meet them, months in advance
And all the classes are filled by then.
Hey! Advisors! Make some time to see us!
All in all we’re just an appointment in the book 2x

We don’t need spoiled brats and slackers
We don’t need no chatterbox
They talk in class while I talk
They sleep in class while I speak
Hey! Students! Give us some respects
All in all we’re just another grade in your book 2x

We don’t need amateur DJs
We don’t need compulsive texters
They wear iPod in the classrom
Their thumbs move and dance along
Hey! Students! Classroom isn’t no FaceBook
All in all we’re just another poke on the screen 2x

Skateboarders plow thorough throngs of people
Why not give courtesy a try?
Now a word for the reckless bikers
Please slow down and ride on the lanes
Hey! Speeders! Decrease your speed now!
All in all we’re just another bump on the road 2x

on budget cuts

We don’t need no lowered wages
We don’t need no social control
They take our profits for their programs
They exploit the workers for their own
Hey! Budget!…Leave our cash alone
All in all we’re just another cut from a fall 2x

We don’t need no additional prisons
We don’t need no more failed lightrails
They take the wages from our teachers
Afterschool kids all but free to roam
Hey! Economy!…Leave our change alone
All in all legislature is only dropping the ball 2x

We don’t need no budget cutting
We just need some better spending control
Increases in spending won’t fix the problem
Removing funding only spins out of our hold
Hey! Cutters! Leave our money alone
All in all we’re just a nother bank to withdraw 2x

on Phoenix Metropolitan

We don’t need no cougars in Scottsdale
We don’t need you sheriff Joe
No more snowbirds on our roads
speed cameras! leave us speeders alone
Hey! speed cameras! leave us speeders alone
All in all, it’s just another Sheriff Joe downfall 2x

We don’t need no more pollution
We don’t need no more heat waves
No more “hey next year” from you Suns
workers leave our roads along
Hey! workers! leave the friggin’ roads alone
All in all we’re just another cone on the road 2x

Summer heat is un-bearable
120 degrees is inhumane
Tempe lakes have no beach life
Phoenix has no blue ocean
Hey! Desert! give us some cool breeze
All in all we’re just another prick of cactus 2x

All in all, we’re just another vote on the wall
All in all we’re just another cut from a fall
All in all we’re just another check in the bank
All in all we’re just another grade in the book
All in all we’re just another poke on the screen
All in all we’re just another bump on the road
All in all, it’s just another Sheriff Joe downfall
All in all we’re just another cone on the road
All in all we’re just another prick of cactus
All in all we’re just another brick in the wall
All in all we’re just another complaint!!!!!!!!!!!

Do you want to have a peek on the lyrics?
The lyrics is created based on tons (literally many!) of complaints we managed to collect.

Here are some verses (from many!!) from it…..The complete lyrics is available on the D day!

on budget cuts:
We don’t need no additional prisons
We don’t need no more failed lightrails
They take the wages from our teachers
Afterschool kids all but free to roam
Hey! Economy!…Leave our change alone
All in all legislature is only dropping the ball 2x

on Phoenix:
We don’t need no more pollution
We don’t need no more heat waves
No more “hey next year” from you Suns
workers leave our roads along
Hey! workers! leave the friggin’ roads alone
All in all we’re just another cone on the road 2x

on ASU:

Parking and meters are too expensive
The cost of food is way too much
Books are just a waste of money
There is too much boring homework
Hey! Professors leave us all alone…
All in all we’re just another grade in the book  2x

We don’t need amateur DJs
We don’t need compulsive texters
They wear iPod in the classrom
Their thumbs move and dance along
Hey! Students! Classroom isn’t no FaceBook

complaint1Do you think living in Phoenix Metropolitan is perfect? Hell no…. Don’t you have many complaints about your life? Don’t you feel like to complain?

Why not cry out rather than swallow what worries us Phoenix Metropolitan-dwellers? Why not contribute your frustration with professors, students, administrators, legislators, traffic jam, taxes etc. towards a powerful and pleasurable public complaint?

Students of JUS 394 at ASU invite you to collectively complain!!
Here are few complaints from the class, all students…(ASU professors, don’t you want to complain about your students???)

Lightrail doesn’t run enough, doesn’t go shopping, or to the airport.
ASU needs more parking. It should be free.
Tuition hikes
The whole freeway closes too often…
Lakes have no beach life, and we don’t have an ocean.
It takes forever for professors to email back…
Budget cut on education
The state cares more about prison than education

Yes, whoever you are, whatever you do, and whatever you feel, you’re welcome to complain!!!

The ASU Complaints Choir will consist of singers young and old, experienced or just curious. We will all sing together, so nobody needs to feel exposed. There are no special skills required. Check this blog later for final lyrics and melody, once we’re done in transforming all complaints into the song.

…for the most fun public complaining event in Phoenix Metropolitan….

Come join JUS 394 Cyber Politics COMPLAINT CHOIR
