The Lyrics

A fond farewell to a president surprisingly well-loved. This has an extra verse and chorus compared to the original because I didn't have the heart to cut any of these ones - and there were a few more that didn't make it, too.
T'was in the early eighties that you first got in
Wha-hoo! Ron, Ron, Ron Wha-hoo! Ron, Ron
Nobody in England thought that you would win
It's true Ron, Ron, Ron, it's true Ron, Ron

Yeah! But god forbid!
Yeah! And win you did
Yeah! I lost fifty quid
On you Ron, Ron, Ron on you Ron, Ron

A new word: "Reaganomics" for your policy
Anew Ron, Ron, Ron anew Ron, Ron
Just like "Thatcherism" came from Maggie T
She, too Ron, Ron, Ron she too Ron, Ron

Yeah! Meant lower tax
Yeah! Rich men could relax
At least you didn't choke on snacks
Taboo Ron, Ron, Ron taboo Ron, Ron

'though it was often said your brain was nondescript
Cuckoo Ron, Ron, Ron cuckoo Ron, Ron
At least you were adept at reading from the script
On cue Ron, Ron, Ron on cue Ron, Ron

Yeah! You read the word
Yeah! Though what we heard
Yeah! Often sounded absurd
From you Ron, Ron, Ron from you Ron, Ron

Although you took a bullet you lived on to be
Yes you Ron, Ron, Ron yes you Ron, Ron
The very first pres to live to ninety-three
Was you, Ron, Ron, Ron yes you Ron, Ron

Yeah! You were quite a guy
Yeah! But there's a time to die
Yeah! It's time to say bye-bye
Adieu Ron, Ron, Ron adieu Ron, Ron

Well done, Phil, but did you really bet that Jimmy Carter would be re-elected?
Phil Alexander - June 07, 2004 - Report this comment
No, JJ - I've never bet on anything, let alone an election... but it did summarize the feeling over this side of the Atlantic when he was first elected

I always imagined Ron not so much as a President, but as a warm, friendly, fatherly guy working behind the counter at a 1950's-style malt shop, like the one in the movie "Back To The Future" know, wearing a white outfit, with one of those little folding white hats, smiling and joking with the kids as he served up their chocolate malts and hot fudge sundaes. I never voted for him. May he rest in peace. May Nancy find comfort, too. 555 for this great parody, Philbo.

Ironic you thought of this. One of the only parodies I have not put on the site is one I wrote during the Reagan administration. I felt it was too dated for this site, but one of the lines was: "You got a little button in a little room (You do, ron, ron, ron, you do, ron, ron) you push it and the world is gone in one big boom (It's true ron, ron, ron it's true, ron, ron)
Phil Alexander - June 07, 2004 - Report this comment
You should post it anyway, Rick - it may be dated, but that's kinda funny. Somehow, I'm not surprised, though ;-)

And thanks for all the nice comments, everybody... I can go to work with a smile on my face :-)
