The Lyrics

This is on the newest Mystic Shake album "Serious Fun". You can find out more about us at our website below
(Intro) Every morning I listen to the public radio
A voice in my ear, it's raspy and low
Sounds like she drank a bottle of Tabasco
Who is that foxy lady, I really want to know

Two days after Christmas in 1943
Born in Louisiana down in New Orleans
Christened Mary Martha Corrine
No one could pronounce it so they called her Cokie

Cokie, Cokie Roberts - Queen of the Media

Her daddy was a congressman he flew on a plane
Crashed in Alaska and was never seen again
Her momma was elected to that congress seat
First Louisiana woman to accomplish such a feat

Cokie, Cokie Roberts - Queen of the Media

Went to school in Massachusetts college of Wellesley
Worked for PBS, NPR, & ABC
Wrote a couple books with her husband Steve
Everyone knows Cokie in Washington DC

Cokie, Cokie Roberts - Queen of the Media

I'd really like to meet her but I'll never get the chance
To hold her in my arms at an inaugural dance
Every time I hear her voice it puts me in a trance
What I wouldn't do to get a little romance with

Cokie, Cokie Roberts - Queen of the Media
Cokie, Cokie Roberts . . .

(Spoken) Cokie - when we're lying there by the reflecting pool outside the Washington Monument . . . I don't care about the president, I don't care about the Congress, I don't care abou the world . . . I just want to get a little politically incorrect with you
