The Lyrics

Well, not quite as fast as the guys who got them out the day after, kudos to you speedy dudes. Another politician caught in an affair, what are these guys thinking? Have they not learned from their predecessors? Apparently not!
Gov’ner Was A Rollin' Stone

Was a dame from Argentina
Guv from the public arena, yes he was
Name was Maria, and she was his ho
He’s not servin’ the masses, no
Too busy lookin’ for babes with nice asses
He’ll give you a story can’t believe a word he say
And all he wants to do is play

Gov’ner was a rollin' stone
Whenever he laid his mistress she’d moan
(And then he lied)
Said he was hikin’ alone (repeat 1x)

Hey, Mama, is it true what they say
That Dad was cheatin’ every day of his life
Some rumors goin’ around sayin'
That he had three outside women
Daddy was always out playin’
What a sorry life
That ain't right

What can we really expect,
when Willy was preachin’?
Talkin’ about doin’good,
but he need impeachin’
Was foolin’ around,
said it’s not sex, just goin’ down
Showed them all how it’s done

Pres’dent was a rollin' stone
Whenever he smoked cigars we would groan
(And when he lied)
Made no attempt to atone (repeat 1x)

Say, they’ve been catchin’ lots of gov’ners here of late
One in Nevada and two in New York State
Who knows who else will beg, borrow or steal?
Just to get some thrills
I’ll tell ya, folks say there are too many people sinkin’
To spend all this time chasin’ women and drinkin’
But Gov’ment, we can’t depend on you to tell us the truth
And who’s gonna pay the bills?

Gov’ment got the rollin' stones
In their closets they got skeleton bones
(They think they’re sly)
And all they leave us are unknowns (repeat 1x)
