The Lyrics

"If I was the governor, I'd govern in the morning
I'd govern every evenin, all over this land
I'd govern over danger, I'd govern with a warning
about love between our brothers and our sisters,
as I govern this land"


"if I had a grasp
I'd grasp you in the morning
i'd grasp you as you're leaving
all with a groping hand
i'd grip you in a manger
and grope you in the morning
come on love between
a gov'nor and the sisters,
all over this land"


"is it very wrong?
what I did in the morning?
did I grab you in the evening?
did I use my hands?"
are ladies now in danger?
so ladies take a warning,
he's talkin about love between
a gov'nor and the sisters,
all over the land

"If I was the governor, I'd govern in the morning
I'd govern every evenin, all over this land
I'd govern over danger, I'd govern with a warning
about love between our brothers and our sisters,
as I govern this land"

"If I had a grasp..." Now we'll see: Arnold has no grasp of the issues.
