The Lyrics

The oddest moment of the Republican Party convention so far: Clint Eastwood, in (rather one-sided) conversation with an empty chair..
Once upon a time
Not so long ago

Romney wants to run the US
Party faithful cheer
They think he's the best... he gloats.. and gloats
Ryan wants to be his VP
Working on his speech, not wholly truthfully
For votes - your votes

Mitt says you've got to hold on to what you've got
Republican convention says:
"You didn't build that"
Got a special guy - to do a stint
For votes - they're calling on Clint

Oh, what's he doin' there?
Oh, talking to a chair
Can't believe - he used to be Mayor
Oh, he's talking to a chair
Talking to a chair

Romney thinks he's king of the block
Him P.O.T.U.S.?
That would be a shock - so tough, it's tough
Four years on, he's running again
The people don't like him, last time
He lost to McCain? Not sane.

I wonder...
Can he be the best they've got?
Every time I hear him, think
"You're losing the plot"
He's got R-money, that's no misprint
For votes - they're calling on Clint

Oh, a vacant stare
Oh, talking to a chair
"Senior moment" - we've all been there
Oh, he's talking to a chair
Talking to a chair

He's gonna roll on, on ready or not
Then after the fight, he'll go back to his yacht

Oh, hard not to stare
Oh, talking to a chair
I'm not a Yank, so why should I care?
Oh, talking to a chair

(repeat to memory fade)

Nice one Phil. I had to go and look this up to see what you were talking about. It seems that Clint has not been listening to enough Neil Diamond:

And no one heard at all
Not even the chair...
