The Lyrics

Ted Kennedy, Chappaquiddick...
Cowardice, cowardice
Poor Mary Jo Kopechne
28, bright
Tired that night
Got in the Olds* not expecting (to die)
Too young you know, into the water you go
Kennedy left you to die there
Cowardice, cowardice
President? No, not ever...

Cowardice, cowardice
No rescue, Kennedy fleeing
Back into night
Kept out of sight
Put on dry clothes, though SHE was still missing
He did go, left the scene we know
Didn't report for 10 hours
Cowardice, cowardice
May you burn in hell forever...
* 1967 Oldsmobile Delmont, plate: L78-207

Joke of the Day - January 30, 2017 - Report this comment
An aide went into Rose Kennedy’s bedroom early one morning to tell her the sad news that Jackie had died. “That’s terrible,” the old lady rasped. “Was Teddy driving?”
