"How Do You Sit There?"

by Mario Depeine, Sr.

This song is from the "heart" of America. It says what many Americans are thinking and wondering about their representatives. How could our representatives in the government just ignore the very people who voted them in? Tell me! Tell me! Tell me!

Album Notes
I literally woke up on October 25, 2011 and felt the urge to send a message to Congress. I wanted to do a YouTube video and see how I could get people in Congress to remember that they "work for us" not us "working for them." I said as I have often said: "Something is wrong with this picture." That morning, I woke up at 5:45 and wrote most of the song at the ironing board by 6:00. Then I got ready for work. I realized that the song was more than a YouTube song so I proceeded to work on it some more. My wife, Lavern, was a tremendous help. I often went to her to see what she thought. She gave me great feedback and so I kept on revising the song until I thought I could present it to a more qualified artist. Kenny Simmons, formerly of the Commodores, was that artist. He has become a great friend and musical adviser. We worked in the past on another project. I hesitantly presented the song to him while I sat in my car. He listened to it, he was nodding his head (good sign) and he said "I like this." That made my day! I went back to Garage Band and made a few adjustments. Kenny (Phoenix Atlantis Entertainment) mastered the track and by December 13, 2011 (4:57 PM) I had received the finished CD from Disc Makers ready for sale!

I hope that this song sends a very loud and clear message to all of our elected representatives and reminds them that the American Government is a Government of the people, for the people and by the people. Individuals vote, not corporations! I hope that many will download this song, play it everywhere. I hope it is played out loud in Washington, DC so that when members of Congress hear it, they will start to develop a conscience and a memory that tells them that they "owe it to the people" to do what will help America and Americans. Too many people are out of work and suffering as a result. Let's bring this message to every corner of America and let it become a subject of conversation not just because of the "Occupy movement" but because all of America is saying "We see you sitting there doing nothing and we will not accept it any longer!" Congress needs to get people back to work and stop playing politics. Pass whatever "Jobs Bill" that needs to be passed and focus on the success of Americans, not on the demise of an American President.

Great song
This song captures the feeling and sentiments of the generality of America's people. Why can't the politicians in Washington understand that we don't care for party politics. All we want is for them to do what we elected them to do. Great song.


Bulle Eye!
This is one song that truly hits the bull's eye with regards to the congressional stalemate that's holding the nation hostage at this time. The lyrics are very catchy and punchy. Deserves good air-time on every radio station.

Great song!!
This song speaks of the climate now in America. it seems we are being forgotten. the message is powerful to the laymen or the political professional. A must listen for anyone looking to have a message in their music.

I think the song its amazing. It has a really nice beat to it and it helps the public be aware of what's going on with our congress. Why do you seat there, Why do you seat there?? tell me tell me :-)

Fantastic Song
A song that goes the straight to the point about how congress is operating currently - "just sitting". I love the song, it is the kind of music that is enjoyable and educational!!!


Great Message
This song really makes you think about what's going on in this country. Love the message that it gets across.

A timely message, insightful lyrics and catchy refrain -- a perfect soundtrack for OWS 2012, it encapsulates the feelings and frustrations of this generation of middle class America. It calls to action those who have the power to change the apathy that permeates Washington.
