Country legend Dolly Parton scorched Elizabeth Warren and her Trump-hating campaign after she found out that the far-left senator hijacked her song “9 to 5” and is using it as her official campaign theme song.
The 73-year-old Grammy Award winner usually stays out of politics, but this time Democratic presidential candidate went too far.
Dolly Parton isn’t playing games after she learned the far-left senator Elizabeth Warren hijacked one of her favorite songs and is using it as her number one campaign song.
First of all, Dolly Parton wasn’t confused about why Warren is using the “9 to 5” tune. The lyrics surely point to the horrible boss from the movie of the same name, and the 73-year-old country icon knows Warren was using her lyrics to degrade President Donald Trump, along with the lies the senator is telling about his policies.
Parton’s song lyrics read in part:
Workin’ 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin’
Barely gettin’ by, it’s all takin’ and no givin’
They just use your mind and they never give you credit
It’s enough to drive you crazy if you let it
9 to 5, for service and devotion
You would think that I would deserve a fat promotion
Want to move ahead but the boss won’t seem to let me
I swear sometimes that man is out to get me!
9 to 5, yeah
They got you where they want you
There’s a better life
And you dream about it, don’t you
It’s a rich man’s game
No matter what they call it
And you spend your life
Puttin’ money in his wallet
After Dolly Parton heard that the people over at Warren’s campaign were using her song, she immediately got hold of her manager.“Parton’s manager, Danny Nozell, revealed that not only did Warren use the song without permission, but that the singer doesn’t ever allow her songs to be involved with any political campaigns,” Fox News reports.
“We did not approve the request, and we do not approve requests like this of (a) political nature,” Nozell told The Associated Press.
CEO of CTK Management, Nozell, didn’t respond to questions about whether Parton’s team might register any formal complaint about Warren’s use of the song.
“If Parton escalates the matter, there’s no shortage of precedent: The late Tom Petty reportedly sent a cease-and-desist letter to Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., over the use of his song American Girl in her 2011 campaign, and former President George W. Bush got a similar letter from Petty over his choice of the singer’s I Won’t Back Down during the 2000 campaign,” Breitbart reports.
Parton is very proud that she didn’t get caught up with the other Hollywood celebrities who use their fame to lecture Americans on politics. But, just last month after her own sister called Dolly out for not speaking out on behalf of the #MeToo movement, which has been hijacked by the left, the country singer responded.
When a leftist reporter asked Dolly Parton if she is a “feminist” and supports the Women’s March, the reporter was aghast when Parton “wrinkled her nose” in disgust. “I don’t think … I mean, I must be if being a feminist means I’m all for women, yes. But I don’t feel I have to march, hold up a sign or label myself,” said Parton. “I think the way I have conducted my life and my business and myself speaks for itself. I don’t think of it as being feminist. It’s not a label I have to put on myself. I’m just all for gals.”
It’s nice to hear Dolly say “But I don’t feel I have to march, hold up a sign or label myself?” as she is referring to the Trump-haters in the Women’s March like Jane Fonda, Madonna, and Ashley Judd.
She is Dolly Parton, and she isn’t going to “label” herself a rabid feminist to make Oprah Winfrey or anyone in the Hollywood crowd happy.
And now she isn’t going to let “Pocohantas” Warren use her beautiful song to push her far-left agenda. Dolly has said numerous times the gift God gave her was musical, and that’s all she wants to share with all Americans.
America needs more celebrities like Dolly Parton. She loves America and refuses to take part in anything that tears down and divides our country.
