The Lyrics

Anybody here, seen my old friend Marco?
Can you tell me where he’s gone?
He drank a lot of water, but he never did catch on
I just looked around and he was gone...

Anybody here, seen that old Ben Carson?
Can you tell me where he’s gone?
He’s an OK surgeon, but his speeches make me yawn
I just looked around and he was gone...

Anybody here, gonna trust Ted Cruz?
Can you tell me where he’s gone?
He pissed a lot of people, ‘cause he couldn’t get along
I just looked around and he was gone...

Didn’t you hate the things that they stood for
They didn’t even try to find some good in you and me
The GOP – any day now, it’s gonna have a meltdown

Everybody here, seen my friend The Donald
Let me tell you where he’s gone
People say he’s crazy and what’s up with that hair?
But I just looked around, he’s still there…

At least until November, when you know he’s bound to lose
Like Rubio, Carson and Cruz

Good use of original song for political mediocrities of a new generation. "Looked around and they were gone" transformed into "Looked around and he's still here" is a nice twist on the ending.

So, you think Ted Cruz is untrustworthy because Donald Trump, a guy who claims Ted's father was involved in the Kennedy assassination, says so? Talk about an unimpeachable source!! (Cue Groucho Marx eyebrow raise and cigar tap)

I never heard of the Cruz/Kennedy allegations until you mentioned them. Probably not worth looking into. Never bought into the "birther" narrative, either.
