The Lyrics

Some pundits attribute Hillary Clinton's upset of Barack Obama in the New Hampshire primary to her tearfully confiding that she might lose this opportunity to be President and change America's course. See for the original song.
Seven years she's away from White House
Water come to her eye
All this time she has prayed for White House
Water come to her eye

Come back Clintons, come back Hill
Wipe the tear from your eye
Come back Clintons, come back Bill
Wipe the tear from your eye

She recall when this race was new
Water come to her eye
There was one but now there's two
Water come to her eye

Come back Clintons, fight back till
Lead is clear, don't be shy
Come back Clintons, Barack kill
Shed no tears for that guy

When her poll standing start to fall
Water come to her eye
She need to hear supporters all
Bought her glum view and sigh

Come back Clintons, hold back spill
Wipe the tears from your eyes
Come back Clintons, your flack will
Hype the tears from your eyes

Standing there in the polling place
Water come to her eye
Soon we'll see her smiling face
Water gone from her eye

Come back Clintons, don't be shrill
Pipe down, pleasant surprise
Come back Clintons, learn the drill
Hope those years made you wise

In his shadow she stand awhile
Water come to her eye
Soon she'll seize the prize in style
Water gone from her eye

Come back Clintons, have your fill
Swipe your share from our pie
Come back Clintons, love us still
Gripes and fear then will fly

It's a crime, her foray for White House
Taught her some times to cry
Second time, she'll hold sway in White House
Got her bum for First Guy
If you sing this in public and people drop money, keep it; but drop a note to me at .

In the last stanza, change "foray for" to "first stay in" to memorialize Bill with M. L. et al.
