The Lyrics

In the wake of Dick Cheney's shooting scandal, I felt like only Tom Lehrer could truly express the mood I think the V.P. was in after the incident.
To Tom, or Dick or Harry
'Twas just a day in February
But I went out to shoot some quail
On a nice and scenic trail
I bagged the legal limit by that winter morning's end
One good pheasant, seven ground quails, and my friend

He said he couldn't see me
Till his face filled up with BB's
When I raised my gun, took aim
Man and quail, they looked the same
It's nice to have a buddy on whom you can depend
Shot a pheasant, seven ground quails, and my friend

One incident of bad form
Touched off a media sh*tstorm
And suddenly the spotlight was on me
Stem cell research, social action
Elicit no reaction
They all want the gossip about the V.P.

Maureen Dowd or Bill O' Reilly
They all did their best to try me
Pundits sat there making fun
"Oh look out! He's got a gun!"

My taxidermist's happy, and my pal is on the mend
Shot a pheasant, seven ground quails, and my very bestest friend

Funny and expertfully crafted rework of one of my favorite selections from one of my artists! I can see you're truly in your "element" with Leher! By the way "Ann"... your name deserves high marks as well. Would love to see more of your stuff...perhaps under another pseudonym like Anon A Nymph!

Loved it. A bit of awkwardness with a few phrases, but Hey! I sang it anyway! 5's
