Complicit, Convicted, and Commuted (the Musical!)

To the tune of Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered Lyrics by Lorenz Hart, music by Richard Rodgers
If you would like to sing along with the wonderful Ella Fitzgerald, you can hear her version of the song here. (Don’t ask me what the video is about. I have no clue.)

It takes one whole quart of liquor,
For me to get any sleep,
Before I get even sicker,
Get rid of this creep.

Nothing but an impolite louse,
Let’s rid DC of his stink,
Since he’s living in the White House,
I haven’t slept a wink.

Original book cover.

I’m unkempt again,
Verklempt again,
I’m angry and filled with contempt again,
Disturbed, despondent, and disgusted am I.

It’s my belief,
The Chimp-in-Chief,
Even gave herpes to the coral reef,
Disturbed, despondent, and disgusted am I.

Lost my mind, but what of it?
It’s better, think you’ll agree,
If I dared to obstruct justice,
No one would pardon me!

I don’t know why,
Scooter-pie,
Gets treated much better than you and I,
Disturbed, despondent, and disgusted am I.

He’s a fool, we all know it,
Completely void of all charm,
We must impeach, or we blow it,
Before he does more harm.

It’s always the same sad story,
That’s why I don’t sleep a wink,
The world is tattered and gory,
The country’s on the blink.

He’s sinned a lot,
I mean a lot,
On this country’s honor, he’s just a blot,
Disturbed, despondent, and disgusted am I.

The outlook’s grim,
Our chances slim,
Thanks to the morons who cling to him,
Disturbed, despondent, and disgusted am I.

When he speaks, we are seeking,
To figure out what he said,
Grammatically speaking, it fills us all with dread.

Vexed again, perplexed again,
When he speaks,
I feel like we’re hexed again,
Disturbed, despondent, and disgusted am I.

I have to gasp,
I’m quite aghast,
To see the bad karma that he’s amassed,
Disturbed, despondent, and disgusted am I.

We’ve been so burned,
Our wishes spurned,
I hope that there have been some lessons learned,
Disturbed, despondent, and disgusted am I.

He makes me so dyspeptic,
The news is too much to bear,
I get so apoplectic,
Filled with dread and despair.

Impeach the prick,
The same with Dick,
Let’s take back our country, and make it quick.
Disturbed, despondent, and disgusted no more?
