The Lyrics

(You’re hot at grifting galore,
you’re hot at grifting a score.)

It would be felony
if done by, e.g., me—
that is, to do such grifting galore
(you’re hot at grifting a score).

In the state of V-A
such thieving is OK
if you’re ensconced behind the gov.’s door.

I want to see Bobby’s world,
I want to see Bobby’s world.
it’s a most engorged kleptocracy.
’cause if I had Bobby’s world,
if I had Bobby’s world. . .
have a huge personal treasury.

He might have to atone
for those no-pay-back “loans”;
they’re part of Bobby’s ill-gotten wealth
(score lots at grifting galore).
His patron pays and pays
for good things he will say
RE: patron’s product and your good health.

I want to see Bobby’s world,
I want to see Bobby’s world;
it’s a bloated, gorged kleptocracy.
But if I had Bobby’s world,
if I had Bobby’s world. . .
I’d be in the penitentiary.

I joked above, Bobby’ll stay scot-free,
replaced by worse Ken Cuccinelli.
