The Lyrics

I imagine that by now, everyone's heard the big news about the John Edwards indiscretion..
One, two, three
Has John Edwards made a love child baby?
It's a possibility..
He picked up a lady for a little piece a' tail,
And thought, hamm'rin's gonna be done secretly, Lord, Lord,
Hamm'rin's gonna' be kept secretly.

A reporter, she said to John Edwards,
How about that Rielle Hunter gal?
Whatever you have heard, it's completely false..
I love my wife, I'm her true pal, God, God,
Love my wife, I'm her true pal..

John Edwards ran his campaign
Swearin' to be a good Prez man
Then hired on his mistress for big bucks,
Careers have died for that hammer in the hand, Lord, Lord,
Died for that hammer in the hand..

John Edwards scored one for the right side
By bringin' scandal to the left
He's the focus of the gossip, DC town
Just might have hammered himself to death, Lord, Lord,
Just hammered his fool self to death

When John's wife was sick with cancer
John sprung his cheat romance
This takes the prize..for lousy tricks,
He should a' kept that hammer in his pants, Lord, Lord,
Should a' kept that hammer in his pants..

The story first broke, Inquirer
October of last year..
Then was. somehow, laid aside, the press let it ride
But, suddenly, it's in high gear, Lord, Lord
Suddenly, it's in high gear!

Sorry for his mistake, now..

Well, John Edwards, he hammered in the hotels
He traded fame for desire
Wife Elizabeth stands by her man
He should'a kept that hammer in stride, Lord, Lord
John Edwards should 'a kept his hammer in stride

Oh yeah, John Edwards had him a woman
Joins that apologetic clan
The woman bore a child after John Edward's hamm'rin'
Guess she made him feel like a man, Lord, Lord
Guess she made him feel like a man

So, now for John it's Monday morning
He's still got his wife to care and cling
But If the name John Edwards doesn't fly no more
He can blame his reckless hammerin', Lord, Lord
Gotta' blame that reckless hammerin'..
Say it again!

Yes, they will blame John Edwards hammerin', Lord, Lord,
Gotta' blame, John Edwards hammer sin..
Come on! Whoa!

So who is this John Edwards chap, anyways? Sounds like some kind of politician. ;-)
