The Lyrics

Way to spin your crushing defeat in the Florida Primary, Newt Gingrich: He spoke behind a podium with a sign saying "46 STATES TO GO." While this is true, and he HAS won 1 of the 4 States already contested...
Well, I won just one of the first 4 States.
I've got 46 States to go.
And the media thinks it's sealed my fate.
I've got 45 States to go.

Well, I headed to Nevada, try to grease the wheel.
I've got 44 States to go.
But Vegas and Reno gave me a bad deal.
I've got 43 States to go.

Well, I called Mitt the Governor lots of names, a bunch
with 31 States to go.
But Michigan's his "home" State, and he ate my lunch
with 30 more States to go!

Well, I gave a few speeches, come and watch me fly.
Got 25 States to go.
But the people of Ohio just spit in my eye
with 24 States to go!

Well, here comes a preacher for to save my run
with 20 more States to go.
But he's mad that I pinched the rear end of a nun
with 19 States to go!

Now, I'm in Illinois and I spin my line
with 15 States to go
but on Chicago TV, Mitt's ads work just fine
with 14 States to go!

Well, I oughta do well down in Mississippi
with 13 States to go
but they don't like my mistresses, forget about me!
With 12 more States to go!

With my feet on the ground and my face on the news
got 7 more States to go
but the Tea Party seems to want to cut me loose
with 6 more States to go!

I can see the mountains and the L.A. sky
with 3 more States to go
but in California looks like my campaign's gonna die
with 2 more States to go!

I can't hear enough cheering from Convention seats.
There's no more States to go!
So I hold my nose and I endorse Mitt
and here I go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o!

Actually, it's 44. Balloon head didn't qualify for the VA or MO ballots.
