"Presidential Pardon"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

I'd like to be
Exempt and free
With a presidential pardon to my name
He'd grin a grin
Forget my sins
Sign a presidential pardon to my name

I'd call my friends, throw a party
A presidential pardon for me!
I'd like to be
Exempt and free
With a presidential pardon, have it made

White collar crime?
Won't do the time
'Cause I'm friends with the Commander-in-Cheif's aide
Prison? Instead
Home in my bed
And my presidential pardon keeps me safe

While my employees are wrecked
More and more moolah I'll collect!
I'd like to be
Exempt and free
With a presidential pardon to my name

I would lie
And dab my eyes
The hearing, set up to clear my name
(To exonerate my name!)
What a boon
For each corporate goon
Knowing from consequence we're safe
No minimum security jail
Nor Federal Pound-me-in-the-ass!
I'd like to be
Exempt and free
With a presidential pardon - at last!
With a presidential pardon - at last!
With a presidential pardon - at last!

Here's fives from me,

Thanks a lot, everybody. Kristof, I refuse to answer the questions on the grounds that it may incriminate me. And, 2Eagle, I know that Ringo wrote and performed it, but it was on a Beatles album, so I crediti ti to them.

Well, you know that the securit pass for the White House is just a plasted get-out-of-jail-free-monopoly card, don't you. But politicans should all be behind bars... hmm... come to think about it, I would like to be behind a bar myself right now... but I'm rambling. 5s.

(P) This OS isn't on my only Beatles CD (#1) so I am too DKTOS. Sorry; oh, almost forgot, I do know "The Wreck" now so I'll head over to that parody shortly.

(ABC) What did Nixon say to Ford when he accidentally bumped into him on his way out of the White House after resigning the Presidency?
