The Lyrics

For blowing a big lead in the Iowa Caucuses, and not even able to come close in his next-door State of New Hampshire, it's time for NittWitt Mitt to hang 'em up. And hang down his head and cry.
Hang down your head, Mitt Romney.
You're not the man we choose.
Hang down your head, Mitt Romney.
Poor boy, you're bound to lose.

He lost the Iowa Caucus.
There he found some strife.
Then he lost New Hampshire.
Cuts him like a knife.

Hang down your head, Mitt Romney.
You're not the man we choose.
(Poor boy, a-well-a)
Hang down your head, Mitt Romney.
Poor boy, you're bound to lose.

This time tomorrow
reckon where he'll be?
Couldn't beat John the Sailor
and lost to Huckabee!

A well, well, now!
Hang down your head, Mitt Romney.
(Hang down your head, poor Mitt!)
You're not the man we choose.
(Hang 'cause you got the blues!)
(Poor boy, a-well-a)
Hang down your head, Mitt Romney.
(Hang down your head, poor Mitt!)
Poor boy, you're bound to lose.
(Poor boy, you're bound to lose!)

A well, well, now!
Hang down your head, Mitt Romney.
(Hang down your head, poor Mitt!)
You're not the man we choose.
(Hang 'cause you got the blues!)
(Poor boy, a-well-a)
Hang down your head, Mitt Romney.
(Hang down your head, poor Mitt!)
Poor boy, you're bound to lose.
(Poor boy, you're bound to lose!)

This time the next year
reckon where he'll be?
Watching the Inauguration
of Obama or Hillary!

Hang down your head, Mitt Romney.
You're not the man we choose.
(Poor boy, a-well-a)
Hang down your head, Mitt Romney.
Poor boy, you're bound to lose.

A well, well, now!
Hang down your head, Mitt Romney.
You're not the man we choose.
(Poor boy, a-well-a)
Hang down your head, Mitt Romney.
Poor boy, you're bound to lose.
Poor boy, you're bound to lose.
Poor boy, you're bound to lose.

Poor boy, you're bound to
lose.

Now that's more like it: Someone who isn't afraid of getting comments for a political parody! BTW, nice job!

Mitt is truly creepy, an alien. Loved the "reckon" verse.
