tumblr_mu8cu6YOLW1rdzuduo2_250

Miley Cyrus is trying to win back some sort of an audience after her recent tailspin continued to spiral her career and image out of control. While not all of her sketches hit on Saturday night, one that mildly worked ended up being a rap sung by Taran Killam in character as House Speaker John Boehner.

Cyrus played a sexed up version of Minnesota representative Michelle Bachman and goofed on her song “We Can’t Stop” with the song “We Did Stop” about the government shutdown and how Republicans are viewed in the matter. Check out the lyrics to the song below:

It’s our party

We can do what we want

It’s our party

We can say what we want

It’s our party

We can stop what we want

We can vote how we want

Defund what we want

Red states and sweaty bodies everywhere

Bill’s in the house like we don’t care

‘cause we came to shut it all down now

No government around now

If you’re not ready for health care

Can I get a “HELL, NO!”

‘Cause we’re gonna keep it out shut down

D.C.is a closed town all-round

So la da di da di

Republican Party

Repping G.O.P.

Doing whatever we want

This is our house

This is our rules

And we did stop (the government)

Yeah, we did stop (shut it down)

Can’t you see it’s we

Who are right?

Can’t you see it’s we

Who ‘bout that life?

To my government workers on the furlough

Even though you’re already paid low

Remember only God can judge us

Forget the haters ‘cause somebody elected us

And everyone in line for early childcare

Anyone who planned to see a grizzly bear

We are all shut down here

Getting so shut down, yeah, yeah

So la da di da di

Republican Party

Repping G.O.P.

Doing whatever we want

This is our house

This is our rules

And we did stop

Yeah, we did stop

Can’t you see it’s we

Who are the right?

Can’t you see it’s we

Who ‘bout that life?

It’s our party

We can do what we want

It’s our party

We can say what we want

It’s our party

We can stop what we want

We can vote how we want

Defund what we want

Shut it down.

 What did you think of the sketch? Did it work or were you still too put off by Cyrus trying to make fun of herself to take the bit seriously? Sound off in the comments section below and let us know.
