"The Ballad of Jeff Gannon" | w/apologies to Cole Porter!
Edited on Thu Feb-17-05 05:13 PM by nostamj
I'M FOR SALE or, "The Ballad of Jeff Gannon"
(to the tune of "Love For Sale" with profound apologies to Cole Porter)

FOR A WHITE HOUSE PASS ON MY BULLDOG NECK
I'LL IGNORE THE FACTS, LET THEM GO UNCHECKED
IT'S A BIZ I'VE BEEN IN BEFORE...
I'VE SOLD MY ASS

TRUE MY MAN DATE WORK WAS TOUGH ON THE KNEES
SO I ASKED: CAN I BE A JOURNALIST PLEASE?
AND MY JOHN GAVE ME HIS SMIRK...
I WENT TO WORK

SPIN FOR SALE
RHAPSODIZING BUSH SPIN FOR SALE
SPIN THAT SELLS YOUR LATEST LIES
SPIN STRAIGHT FROM MY MANLY THIGHS
I'M FOR SALE

BUY MY PRIDE
IF YOU SEEK DISTRACTION, I'M YOUR GUIDE
ON THE FLOOR AND START TO BARK
JUST IMPRESSIONS, NOT A MARK
I'M FOR SALE

LET THE LIBRULS FLING THEIR POOP
IN THEIR LOSER WAYS
IT WON'T GET THEM IN THE LOOP
LIKE MY BOYTOY DAYS

IF YOU PAY YOUR WHORE ENOUGH
THEY'LL DELIVER FLUFF OR ROUGH
ONLINE, ON CUE
EVERY WORD IS UNTRUE

I'M FOR SALE
MILITARY ROUGH STUFF FOR SALE
AND WHEN SCOTTY CALLED MY NAME
WE'D JUST WINK AND PLAY THE GAME
I'M FOR SALE
I'M FOR SALE
I'M FOR SALE.....

I'll never hear that song the same again.
