The Lyrics

With the Illinois Supreme Court finally ruling in his favor, former White House Chief Of Staff Rahm (Rhambo Dead Fish) Emanuel is now free to run for Mayor of Chicago. It's the perfect fit for his "in your face" style. I expect to see some very interesting exchanges between Rahm and Michael Bloomberg of New York City. ;D


I was Obama's mighty White House Chief Of Staff.
(That's you Rahm Rahm Rahm - that's you Rahm Rahm)
Was I afraid of something? Hey don't make me laugh!
(That's you Rahm Rahm Rahm - that's you Rahm Rahm)
Left - to run as you know
For - Mayor of Chi-ca-go,
Then - some dumb judge said "No"!
(What's new Rahm Rahm Rahm? What's new Rahm Rahm?)

I didn't leave Obama to get a raw deal,
(Adieu Rahm Rahm Rahm - adieu Rahm Rahm)
That's why we filed our big appeal.
(Don't screw Rahm Rahm Rahm - don't screw Rahm Rahm)
Won - in the first round.
Then - they took us down.
Last - came my big rebound
(They're through Rahm Rahm Rahm - they're blue Rahm Rahm)


(Instrumental chorus - sax solo)


So vote in this electon because I'm back on.
(For you Rahm Rahm Rahm - for you Rahm Rahm)
Don't vote for Chico or that Carol Mosley-Braun.
(Just you Rahm Rahm Rahm - just you Rahm Rahm)
So - respect my wish
Or - you'll get a dead fish
Vic - 'try is 'delish"
(Go you Rahm Rahm Rahm - go you Rahm Rahm)

(Last line repeated over and over until fadeout or at least until Shaun Cassidy records a horrible remake)

Are there any Capitol Steps fans out there? They are the best current events parodists working today. ;D

Me again! I wanted to add--and have been meaning to do so for some time--that I've been following your comments of late and intermittently dating back to when you first arrived---in sum, they are the most thoughtful, kind, clever and typically LOL'ish on the site--just thought you should know you are appreciated on many levels...

Ultra-great concept, and funny as OMR always is, but well below your usual good pacing:

Somebody ["Some boy", per some transcriptions] told me that his name was Bill (9 or 10)
Was I afraid of something? Hey don't make me laugh! (12)

Yes, my heart stood still (5)
Left - to run as you know (6)

Yes, his name was Bill (5)
For - Mayor of Chi-ca-go (7)

Someday soon I'm gonna make him mine (9)
Don't vote for Chico or that Carol Mosley-Braun (11)

Yes, I'll make him mine (5)
Or - you'll get a dead fish (6)

And when he walked me home (6)
Vic - 'try is 'delish" (5; don't elide: "Vic- tor-y is "delish")

If I'm mistaken anywhere here, please let me know. ... 3-5-4, and please keep in mind that the turtle doesn't bother to critique those whom he doesn't think are worth the time and effort. The key word in "Tough Love" is "Love". ;-D

You get 555 votes from me and my departed ancestors. And we don't even live (or lie) in Chicago. But that never stopped us before.

Thanks all...and no offense taken, TT. Performing live gets me into the bad habit of ramming the proverbial square peg into the round hole. Don't start your car until I can undo something conceived in haste...lol ;D

Unfortunately, we can't hear you sing it - - or is that "fortunately"? :-D

The issue of what live performers can do to fudge mispaced songs is a long-standing one. I've "discussed" it with, among others, Mark Scotti. POV moi is that AIR is a *written* medium, not an audio one, and we want to be able to sing along in our heads without stumbling or tripping.

Otherwise, why is there a "Pacing" category at all? ;-D '

Haste: It seems that your quantity of songs posted has gone up substantially, being 3/day the days I've looked. It was very sad to moi when the once-unequaled JAB deliberately and admittedly chose to abandon quality for quantity, presumably to race the late Malcolm Higgins to the top of the Leader-Bored. (heh!) You should have seen some of his earlier works -- astounding, and the n00b turtle's role model. But that was his choice.

If that's your choice, too, well, OK, but this reader will be sad at the waste of a great talent. Cheers.
