The Lyrics

Imagine being in the press-corps inner circle, following both major-party presidential candidates in the battleground states. That would be almost as much fun as observing nuclear-bomb tests 6 decades ago.
On campaign trails you'll find me scopin'
Where the races are wide open
In a land where the bold may speak free; yahoo!
Where the meaner guy's reactive
And the scary lady's redactive.
The beguiled press is there for Hillary.

'Mid the staged rush and the fact-checks
I'll watch the yellers' tactics:
Drop word-bombs to demean, divert, tease; yahoo!
I'll have donned Trump sombrero
And for her I'll wear a pair o'
Suit pants over my dreadful he-knees.

I will leave E.I.B.'s Rush,
Leave the rantings talk-hosts gush,
Leave their shows to weave and brush standing crowds.
I will seek the ballrooms' crush
Where celebrities are flush;
How I long to see the plush-room prouds.

'Mid the chuckles and the bristles,
I'll watch the guys' bed-whistles
While some cold S.S. guy watches me; yahoo!
Yes, she'll fake wise appearance
So that she can keep high clearance,
'Cause beguiled press is there for Hillary.

What further bombshells will explode during the final 8 days before elections?

The last line could be " 'Cause the White House is where she wants to be." But so does he.
