The Lyrics

Well, there hasn’t been much to stimulate my sense of humor over the past year (2021) and into this one, with the ongoing successive national and international catastrophes. (As the meme goes, “Hey, Jeff Dunham! Come pick up your dummy! This isn’t funny anymore!”) But the one thing crying out for parody is the fact that a certain very high profile member of the administration has a name that happens to rhyme with the name of a fictional school from the now obscure late-1930s Broadway musical, BEST FOOT FORWARD, adapted into a 1941 film starring Lucille Ball. The fight song of the fictional school became the one big hit from the musical, and became as well known as any fight song of any nonfictional school: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQEmrnJpQx0 . The Broadway version also got a revival in 1963 with Liza Minelli and Christopher Walken in the cast: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6JzM-oQEX4 . Though the song has slipped back into obscurity over the last six decades, the similarity between the names of the administration member and the fictional school has been screaming at me for a parody for over a year now, and I finally got around to it:
Double Down, Jen Psaki

If you’ve got the job of the Presidential Spokesman,
Lamestream Media will cover your a** with your every lie.
Everyone is agreed that you have to agree with the Spokesman.
Shout hooray even though it’s so bad you cry!
But when Doocy questions the Presidential Spokesman
About Brandon’s last gaffe, or Kamala’s weird laugh, then she’s trapped.
She can only repeat what was writ on the sheet for the Spokesman
And the whole world knows it’s a pile of crap! (OH, CRAP!)

Double down, Jen Psaki, double down!
They’ll believe, Jen Psaki, if you double down!
Though you want to cry, though you wish to die,
Just repeat Joe’s lie, and double down!
Tell the fib, Jen Psaki, tell the fib!
You’ll survive, Jen Psaki, if you’re sounding glib,
‘Cause you’re Brandon’s voice, and you’re left no choice.
You can fake rejoicing if you only double down.

Brandon’s gaffes are easy to repeat,
And you’re paid big bucks to take the heat!

Double down, Jen Psaki, double down!
You’ll survive, Jen Psaki, if you double down!
Though Ukraine’s all rubble, gas price more than double,
Make like Joseph Goebbels, you just have to double down——[Double down!]
They’ll believe, Jen Psaki, if you double down.
Though you want to cry, though you wish to die,
Just repeat Joe’s lie, and double down.
Tell the fib, Jen Psaki, tell the fib!
You’ll survive, Jen Psaki, if you’re sounding glib,
‘Cause you’re Brandon’s voice, and you’re left no choice.
You can fake rejoicing if you only double down.

Brandon’s gaffes are easy to repeat,
And you’re paid big bucks to take the heat!

Double down, Jen Psaki, double down!
You’ll survive, Jen Psaki, if you double down!
Though Ukraine’s all rubble, gas price more than double,
Make like Joseph Goebbels, you just have to double down.

[Extended version:]
Lamestream Media will cover your a** with your every lie.
Everyone is agreed that you have to agree with the Spokesman.
Shout hooray even though it’s so bad you cry!
But when Doocy questions the Presidential Spokesman
About Brandon’s last gaffe, or Kamala’s weird laugh, then she’s trapped.
She can only repeat what was writ on the sheet for the Spokesman:
It’s all crap! It’s all crap! It’s all crap! (OH, CRAP!)

Jen just resigned. I just got this one in under the wire... or maybe this parody was the straw that broke the camel's back? XD
