The Lyrics

A portmanteau word is one composed of parts of two other words: “smog,” for example, is part “smoke” and part “fog.” The title of this parody about portmanteaus is itself a portmanteau, a combo of “portmanteau” and “names.”
If you got a big mouth
And live up north, head south:
If you’re a feckless clown,
Then please, come on down:

It’s all blight
Day and night,
It’s all blight:

If you got loose screws,
Join Congressional crews—
South of M.-Dixon,
Come to land of Nixon:

It ain’t right
Day or night,
It’s all blight:

If you’re a slick con,
Come on, get your shtik on—
Watch for those like Jack[2]
Who fill your dough sack
O[r] pain.

It ain’t right,
Too big bite,
Go you might. . .

Out the light,
Sphincter tight,
Con delight:

[1]Potomac domain
[3]prison/penitentiary domain
[4]penal/penile domain
