Matthew Farmer, the singing lawyer, is at it again.

In January, Farmer and his band, the Blue State Cowboys, put together "Pay to Play (But Keep Love in Your Heart)," a biting satire about politics in Illinois.

Now they've recorded "Good King Rich," a song about Chicago's Olympic bid.

My favorite line: "We can't pay for salt when there's ice on the streets, but at least we'll have a velodrome."

That about says it all.
