The Lyrics

#47. Arnold has been injured again, but this time it wasn't from bad guys, robots, or political opponents...
When he was a young boy
His father took him atop a ski slope
To look over the land
He said, "Son, when you grow up
Will you be the savior of the actors,
weight-lifters and the fans?"
He said,
"Will you defeat them, the robots, and all the voting people
Who love to see you play
Because one day, I'll leave you,
Alone now, to take over the world
So go and break a leg!"

When he was a big boy
The barbells were no match for his biceps
He curled every day
He thought,
Father, is this what he wanted, the leader of the lifters?
But still no broken leg

He fought the Terminator, and saved the world again
He had the ladies and the money now
But though he's tough, it's not enough
He needs more to defeat
And suddenly, he saw it become clear
Election year! Election year!
And he thought, I'm so strong, it's easy, they'll vote for me
Election year! Election year!
And somehow he emerged the greater
He was the governator

And now he thinks he's feeling like this is all a dream
He's powerful but this is not the end
He wants to run and have some fun
There's snow this time of year
He packs up all his gear
And heads up to

The skiing slope! The skiing slope!
And though his abs are gone and flabby
His arms and legs are still quite strong
They're still quite strong!
Cuz they're not broken, no, or fractured
Look down the slope, and bring it on

But look, he falls into the snow, oh, oh, oh
Disappointed that he stumbled so, oh, oh, oh
Take a look at him and laugh cuz he took such a fall

He won't cry
He's not a pansy
Or a child, he's not a girly man
But his thigh, it's very painful
From the fall, he cannot walk too far
Get a doc, will he need surgery?
Let's get him to
An ambulance or car
See his leg, I think it's broken
Is that clear, let's take an X-ray
Not just a man, he was a hero
Brought us joy, in politics and screen
Took a plow, into a snowdrift
Look - right - there!
A broken leg! A broken leg!
And now his father must be smiling
His prophecy to break a leg
He broke a leg!
But though it's broken, they have surgery
The governator marches on!

My father asked me about this. I said "break a leg, Dad." He doesn't ski but I do. Illinois v. California. And Arnold is from Austria to boot!
