The Lyrics

I've been thinking of doing a Hawkwind song for a while.... though I can't help wondering how many people are going to know this song.
I am a former Mr Universe
Ex-actor now politician
California is my mission
It's all rather unexpected
Into power I'm elected
In charge of the economy
Has the world gone mad or is it me?

I am a former Mr Universe
Biceps are so well-developed
But how I speak, it can't be heloped
It's hard for my amanuensis
(But easier than the president's is)
I'm the pin-up of the Right
And talk of "girlie men" all night

I am a former Mr Universe
Ex-actor now politician (Ex-actor now politician)
Treat democrats with derision (Treat those dems with derision)
Will they pass laws to allow a (Gonna pass laws to allow a)
Ex-Austrian into power (Foreigners gonna have power)
So I get the presidency (So he gets the pres'dency)
Has the world gone mad or is it me?

Obscure song...great parody. "But how I speak, it can't be heloped" had me in stitches...555
Stuart McArthur - October 21, 2004 - Report this comment
a song about Arnie without one attempt at his accent, and containing the word "amanuensis" - 555 for achieving the double, Phil

Do you suppose his right-hand person is a girlie-amanuensis? Our clownish gov is easy to mock, but this one's very clever.

I just could't resist rhyming "amanuensis" with "president's is" (after I'd looked up what amanuensis actually means, of course)... but it's given me something to think about while driving to Hawkwind (something I don't recommend - you always end up going too fast)

DKTOS but the same thing happens to me when I drive to Motörhead. Speaking of which, since Lemmy played in Hawkwind for several years after having quit as bass player for Jimi Hendrix I really should know more or their songs, but apart from "Silver Machine" and "Motörhead" unfortunately I don't.

Excellent concept, very well done. I knew it would be brilliant the moment I saw the title.

Thanks, Martin - must admit that I didn't have you pegged as a Hawkwind aficionado :-)
