An apparent supporter of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has recorded a hymn of sorts to lift up the embattled Republican governor facing recall. Titled “Stand With Governor Walker,” the song features soaring melodies and balladic piano riffs.

Here are the lyrics for the refrain:

We will stand with Governor Walker.
Because he does what he says; not just a big fancy talker.
We will stand with Governor Walker.
We got to keep moving ahead, all the way, with Governor Walker.
Oh no we can’t go back again.
We got to keep moving ahead with Governor Walker.
Mr. Scott Walker, our Wisconsin Governor.

It appears the songwriter, Glen Shulfer, also released a similar tune during the heat of the Madison protests. And it doesn’t seem to be a parody or satire. That song, titled “Union Man,” criticizes the protesters rallying against Walker’s efforts to curtail collective bargaining for public unions in the state. In an interview with a local radio station, Shulfer recounts being heckled at the Capitol protests. Shulfer did not respond to TPM’s request for comment.
