Pack the Court SCOTUS Song

Feeling down about the Dobbs decision? Sing “Pack the Court,” the SCOTUS song, and lift your spirits. Confounded by the climate change corruption in West Virginia v. EPA? Smacked by second amendment gun violence sanctions? You really need to sing the SCOTUS song, “Pack the Court.” The tune is from “Rock the Boat” by the beautiful and talented Hues Corporation.

Pack the Court SCOTUS Song Lyrics

So it's long past time that, we got the notion
Yeah it's long past time that, we got the notion
To pack the court (let's pack the court, baby)
Pack the court (we'll tip the court over)
Pack the court (let's pack the court, baby)
Pack the court

Ever since our voyage of law began
Your rulings thrilled me like the rush of the wind
And your terms have held me safe from a rolling sea
There's always been a quiet bench to harbor you and me

Our SCOTUS is a ship on the ocean
We've been sailing with a cargo full of law and a motion

So it's long past time that, we got the notion
Yeah it's long past time that, we got the notion
To pack the court (let's pack the court, baby)
Pack the court (we'll tip the court over)
Pack the court (let's pack the court, baby)
Pack the court

Up to now, we sailed through every storm
And I've always had your wise judgements to keep me warm
Oh, I need to have the rights that flow from you
Don't let me drift away my dear, when law can see me through

Our SCOTUS is a ship on the ocean
We've been sailing with a cargo full of law and a motion

So it's long past time that, we got the notion
Yeah it's long past time that, we got the notion
So it's long past time that, we got the notion
Yeah it's long past time that, we got the notion
To pack the court (let's pack the court, baby)
Pack the court (we'll tip the court over)
Pack the court (let's pack the court, baby)
Pack the court (we'll tip the court over)
Pack the court

Pack the court (we'll tip the court over)
Pack the court (let's pack the court, baby)
Pack the court (we'll tip the court over)
Pack yeah, pack yeah, pack yeah, baby
Pack yeah, pack yeah, baby

Pack the court
Pack the court
Pack the court

Sing Pack the Court

Need some inspiration to get your voice warmed up? Talk back to this list of SCOTUS 2022 decisions. Then watch the Hues Corporation dance and sing “Rock the Boat.”

With a 6-3 radical conservative majority, the only way to rebalance the SCOTUS is to pack the court. For all the truly consequential decisions in 2022, conservative justices forced through their radical agenda. These six extreme justices opposed a majority of American citizens on major issues. They opposed women’s rights, common sense gun control, stopping climate change, sensible immigration policies, LGBTQ+ rights, and social justice.

It’s no wonder the SCOTUS’ reputation is going down the drain. We can only trust the court’s majority to support and confirm radical legal interpretations that are bad for the US.

For the next two years, Democrats have control of the senate. If President Biden named four new justices to the Supreme Court, the Senate would be happy to confirm them. Imagine four experienced justices with integrity, honesty, respect for law, and no partisan agendas. We already have three such judges on the SCOTUS, all women. This is our chance to make the court truly diverse, a bench that represents all Americans, not just the privileged.

Sensible justices Jackson, Sotomayor, Kagan

Please listen, President Biden. Search for sensible judges. Select four who will uphold the Constitution and the rule of law. Then name all four to the Supreme Court, at one press conference.

Everyone else, take up the challenge and sing “Pack the Court” all across this land. Sing it for your representative and senators. Sing it for President Biden. Sing it loud and don’t stop until we get a Supreme Court of the people, not of the radical right.
