The Lyrics

Going back home to Ma Kettle,
Fourth place I'll have to settle,
Politics and I will part.

I act like Alfred Newman,
But I coulda been a Truman,
If I coulda made the chart.

A contender governmental,
Coulda been presidential,
If you'd voted for Gephardt.

My views are kinda narrow,
And I can be a culero,
But I'm really just a fart.

So you see,
I'm history.
Didn't win, place or show,
So it looks like Johnnie-o.
Lost my seat,
I'm beat.

My career was pure devotion,
Wanted a promotion,
But now I will depart.

It wasn't Al and Tipper,
And it won't be Jane and Dicker.
So say good-night Dick, Gephardt.

Good parody, Guy. I confess that I am old enough to remember the "Good night Dick" line from "Laugh In." I think that we parody writers are really going to miss Dick Gephardt.

Excellent. You had me at governmental/presidential. Oh, do you know Billy Joel's tune "Scenes from an Italian Restaurant" and do you remember anything about Wild Man? No real reason for asking, just interested...
