Harry Shearer; "Ballad of the Pepper Spray Cop" (audio)

Harry Shearer on SOUNDCLOUD, audio (03:02). Harry says
Not a theme song. A meme song. Originally broadcast on Le Show.
Howie P.S.: The Washington Post finds this work of art worthy of their attention and features this line from the lyrics:
“When push comes to shove / what you need isn’t love / it’s a spritz from above / from the pepper spray cop.”
What is weird for me is that I first started enjoying Shearer's political satire almost 45 years ago when he was writing for the UCLA Daily Bruin and I was a fledgling political activist there.
