The Lyrics

For my State's Governor, James I. McGreevey. He's just like any other Governor: He puts his pants on one leg at a time. The difference is in what he did with them before.
You never closed the deal
very well with Golan Cipel.
And there's no point in still
relying on "Don't ask, don't tell."
You tried so hard not to show it (Jimmy...)
But Jimmy! Jim, now we know it!

You've lost that Gov'nor feelin'!
Whoa-oh, that Governor feelin'!
You've lost that Gov'nor feelin'!
Now you're gone, gone, gone!
Whoa-oh-oh-oh!

Now, there's no welcome look
in the eyes of the voters you got!
And now Republicans
criticize you for your moral rot!
It makes me just feel like crying! (Jimmy...)
'Cause Jimmy! Your excuses ain't flying!

You've lost that Gov'nor feelin'!
Whoa-oh, that Governor feelin'!
You've lost that Gov'nor feelin'!
Now you're gone, gone, gone!
Whoa-oh-oh-oh!

Jimmy, Jimmy, I registered voters for you.
But you have only fooled me, and the others, too!

Now you won't be... John Kerry's Attorney Gen-er-al!
So don't... don't... don't... think that I'll still be your pal!

Jimmy! (Jimmy!)
Jimmy! (Jimmy!)
Why all this sleaze? (Sleaze!)
Sleaze! (Sleaze!)
Resign as Guv! (Resign as Guv!)
Resign as Guv! (Resign as Guv!)
And don't come back! (And don't come back!)
And don't come back! (And don't come back!)

You've got New Jersey reelin'.
Whoa-oh, yeah, New Jersey's reelin'.
You've got New Jersey reelin'.
Jim, you're gone, gone, gone
and you can't go on
whoa-oh-oh-oh.

You've got New Jersey reelin'.
Whoa-oh, yeah, New Jersey's reelin'.
You've got New Jersey reelin'.
Jim, you're gone, gone, gone
and you can't go on
whoa-oh-oh-oh.

Over the top Michael! McGreevy's popularity just plummeted 55.5% in the polls. I can see the headlines and story now. "MCGREEVY SPIKED BY MIKE". Trenton - Ultra NJ liberal and campaign advisor Michael Pacholec refused to endorse the Democratic incumbent for renomination to the Governor's race early Sunday. Pacholec cited a fail to the don't ask don't tell philosophy by the sitting Governor...

Arwen: I donīt know why she should be sad, if I understand this right he didnīt use his own money to pay for his lover the way "all" straight politicians do, so apparently she had both the free time and the extra money to shop around for and groom herself with... :-)

Thank you, everyone. Dogs: The worst part about it might be that we don't know much of anything about Dick Codey, except that he's not the same dick. Guy: As you and yours said about Clinton, only in this case it's true, "It's not the sex, it's the cover-up." John Barry: Actually, that's literally how the group got its name. They were performing as the Paramours at a Southern California naval base, and a black sailor heard their sound, which would later be called "blue-eyed soul," and said, "That's righteous, brother!" Johnny D: I don't know, especially considering McGreevey's fortunes are at an "Ebb Tide." Royce: If a babe like Dina couldn't make him switch, what makes you think you... oh, wait, that's not what you're talking about. You mean you'd be throwing his pants (and other things) out the window.
