Subject: Lyr Req: WORST PRESIDENT EVER (Jack Hardy)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 11 Nov 10 - 08:19 PM

I just discovered Jack Hardy. OK, someone requested a different song by him; I didn't find it but I found this instead. It's a delightful song; too bad it's a bit dated—or rather, too bad I didn't know about it when it was current. I have a feeling I'm going to find more good ones by him. Stay tuned—or contribute your own.

Here's his web site. You can hear this song at YouTube.


WORST PRESIDENT EVER
Jack Hardy

1. Stuck in traffic at stop-and-go speed, I like to entertain myself
With all of the bumper stickers I can read, humor's hidden wealth.
There's "Nuke the Gay Whales" and "Whirled Peas," but by far the one most clever,
It gave no name, laid no blame, just said "The Worst President Ever."

2. Well, black is white and white is black; there's yellow-cake in Iraq,
Weapons of mass destruction, reconstruction's still on track.
When the Wall Street Journal and Fox News endorse our president-for-life forever,
Their polls will attest he's still the best worst president ever.

CHORUS: The worst president ever, the worst president ever,
Don't forget, you bumbling fools: {you're/we're} the ones that pulled the lever.
If {you/we} just can't wait to two-thousand-and-eight to say, "No, nay, never,"
It ain't a reach; we could still impeach the worst president ever.

3. Well, he sold our soul to the corporate goals. The Enron hangover still hurts.
It'll take years to calm our fears from color-code alerts.
If we ever survive his Supreme Court, there's a few things we'll have to sever,
Like church and state and the fourth estate and the worst president ever.

4. Well, Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld, Karl Rove, Scooter Libby, and all their kind—
Rats leaving a sinking ship. Guess who's left behind?
Maybe there's space in the Star-Wars race or a spot on the space shuttle Endeavor,
To the moon, none too soon for the worst president ever. CHORUS

5. Well, you can dress him up in a cowboy hat, or a monkey suit in style.
You try to hide his blue blood and the best schooling money can buy.
You can rig all of the voting machines and the voter-list counterfeit,
When all the while he's just a pile of—the worst president ever.

6. Well, there's Nine-Eleven and Abu Ghraib and torture at the CIA,
But he gets his interns from Bible College; they never even heard of a B.J.
But there's plenty left to investigate, if only the Congress had balls,
But we're out of time and I'm out of rhymes for the worst president ever. CHORUS
