The Lyrics

Another FOTR parody, this one for David Paterson, being sworn in as New York State's governor today, Monday, March 17, 2008. Joe Bruno, Republican majority leader of the state senate, has been political enemies with Eliot Spitzer, though I hear Bruno and Paterson get along... Anyway, this one's for Paterson.
May the Lord direct and advise you.
Don’t do stuff to put us to shame.
May you come to be
In New York State a lasting name.

May you be like Carey and Cuomo.
May you give state workers a raise.
Strengthen him, O Lord,
And keep him out of Bruno’s way.

May God bless you
These coming three years.
(May the Lord fulfill this gov’nor’s prayer for us.)
May God save us
From our budget fears.
(May he find some revenue that’s there for us.)

May the Lord direct and advise you.
May the right and left conversate.
Favor him, O Lord,
With brilliance and trust.
Hear our inaugural prayer.

Prayers are always good for the soul, especially on St Patrick's Day! All the best to the new NY-Guv.
