I Pander to the Base

How the hit song of the summer becomes the surprise hit of the fall:

Because you know I pander to the base,
to the base, (no middle)
I pander to the base, to the base (no middle)
I pander to the base, to the base (no middle)
I pander to the base, to the base.

Yeah, it's pretty clear, I don't care 'bout you
unless you pay me, pay me like you're supposed to
'cause I need that cha-ching to stay in this race
Keep my attack ads on the right stations.

I see the media working that 'moderate' junk
we all know that shit ain't real
Come on now, make it stop!
If you've got extremist views just raise 'em up
'Cause every lie I tell is OK
As long as it gets me votes.

Yeah, the Party Boss told me don't worry about nothin'
He says, Voters? They like the lies, they're so afraid of the truth
So, sling mud if you have it
Then go ahead and tell more lies!

Because you know I pander to the base,
to the base, to the base (no middle)
I pander to the base, to the base (no middle)
I pander to the base, to the base (no middle)
I pander to the base, to the base.

I'm really not a hack
Honest, I'm a nice guy ask my fam'ly, hey!
Nah, I'm just playing, trying to win this race
'And every ad I run is OK as long as it gets me votes

Yeah, the Party Boss told me don't worry about nothin'
He says, Voters? They like the lies, they're so afraid of the truth
So, sling mud if you have it
Then go ahead and tell more lies!

Because you know I pander to the base,
to the base, (no middle)
I pander to the base, to the base (no middle)
I pander to the base, to the base (no middle)
I pander to the base, to the base.
I pander to the base, to the base.
I pander to the base, to the base.
