The Lyrics

"If Hillary Clinton's book sells a million copies, I will eat my shoes." -- Tucker Carlson, conservative newspaper columnist and co-host of "Crossfire" on CNN. Last Tuesday, Simon & Schuster announced that Hillary's book, "Living History," which they published, had passed the million-sale mark. Later that day, she came onto the "Crossfire" set and presented Carlson with a cake in the form of a giant shoe. "This shoe is a wingtip," she said. "A right wingtip." Tucker had his cake and ate it, too. This song came out in 1956, first by Carl Perkins, then shortly thereafter by Elvis Presley.
Well it's one and a million, two shoes to go
three times I said it, she made that dough!
And now I gotta go eat my shoes.
Why did I say anything? Now I gotta go eat my shoes.

Well, Paul Begala came, laughed in my face.
Her book went and sold all over the place.
And now there's a thing I don't wanna do.
And, uh-oh, honey, I'll go eat my shoes!
And now I gotta go eat my shoes.
Why did I say anything? Now I gotta go eat my shoes.

(Guitar break -- Aw, let's go, Paul!)

The book's not in my house, in my car.
To the right wing I go very far.
But it sold a million, and I know it's true.
And, uh-oh, honey, I'll go eat my shoes!
And now I gotta go eat my shoes.
Why did I say anything? Now I gotta go eat my shoes.
Rock!

(guitar break)

Well it's one and a million, two shoes to go
three times I said it, she made that dough!
And now I gotta go eat my shoes.
Why did I say anything? Now I gotta go eat my shoes.

Well it's eat, eat, eat my shoes!
Eat, eat, eat my shoes! Yeah!
Eat, eat, eat my shoes, baby!
Eat, eat, eat my shoes!
Why did I say anything? Now I gotta go eat my shoes!
Thankyaverymuch.

Not one of Tucker Carlson's more astute predictions - he should have realized there is a strong demand for fiction. Excellent parody with good top (and bottom) comments, as usual.

Good job Michael...but I mean, anyone could have told Tucker that the book was going to sell a million copies, I mean, its expensive to line bird cages with newspaper every day....
