The Lyrics

California Governor
I created a "Political Quagmire"
Coming down, down, down!
And the "Problems" keep getting higher.
And it burns, burns, burns!
"Political Quagmire"
"Situation Dire"

The taste of "Power" is sweet.
I have "Cronies" groveling at my feet.
I used the "Covid Crisis" as my "Plan".6
To rule the state with an "Iron Hand".

I managed "Covid" by "Decree".
"Rules for You, but not for Me".
I went to "French Laundry" without a "Mask".
On the evening news, I lost my "Ass".

(Repeat Chorus)

I learned to hate all "Voter's Recalls"
Things like that really "Frost My Balls"
I went "All In" for "High Speed Rail"
Then "Cost Overruns" caused it to fail.
"Wind and Solar" reliance are not so "Great",
I had to import "Power" from a neighboring state.

I blamed "Wildfires" on "Climate Change"
No "Forest Management" , I looked "Deranged".
"Sky High Taxes" and a "Soaring Crime Rate",
Caused a "Mass Migration" right out of my State.

(Repeat Chorus)

I'm the "Number One" Realtor, there's "No Doubt"
Caused more homes to sell as "Folks Moved Out".
Banned "State Funded Travel" to "Free Red States"
Then "Vacationed" in Montana because "Freedom

I'm "Standing by Biden" on "Bended Knee"
But if "He" should "Fail" I'm the "Nominee".
I'm ready for "Action" and a "Hot Debate".
I'll even take on "DeSantis" in his home state.

Despite my "Charisma" and a "Movie Star Look"
I'm now branded as a "Snake Oil Schnook".
My political career is in a "Slump"
And I blame it all on "Donald Trump".

(Repeat Chorus)
