The Lyrics

I'm resubmitting this with the correct name, Arnold, which I messed up yesterday; If it was about anybody else, I might not care as much, but I admire Arnold, the governor of California.
He was born on July 30, '47
Mr. Universe and Olympia, too
He had dreams of opportunities, TV breaks and movies
They came true, they came true

Chorus:
And now Arnold reigns in all of California
And the terminator never is a bore
Now Arnold reigns in California
And boy, he can charm ya
To the core, to the core

Pumping Iron, and Total Recall
He's never been out of work at all
But he has been in big screen brawls
Now this is his home

Now Arnold reigns in California
And boy, can he charm ya
To the core, to the core

Will you tell the folks back home he really made it
Tons of offers, some of them he didn't take
And he married quite a lady
That ain't no Raw Deal, baby
He got a break, he got a break

(Repeat Chorus)

well thanks, Stuart, I'm a twisted Gemini; and I'm glad you didn't see yesterday's, I asked Chuck to take it off, I made such a stupid error, calling Arnold "Albert", a time or two, a major derailing of my mind

I like Arnold too. Fine tribute, Royce.

I don't know the original at all, but I read it anyway since I am a California resident. On a personal note I don't care for Arnold, but I must say that this was well written.

Well done, Royce. He is a big improvement over the politician who preceded him.

well you can't be too self-conscious, Royce, mentioning it here anyway for our amusement - an Albert Schwarzenegger might have sued though, I guess....
