IT AIN’T NECESSARILY SO

IT AIN’T NECESSARILY SO
(To tune of, “It Ain’t Necessarily So,” by George and Ira Gershwin from the American folk opera, “Porgy and Bess.”)

Verses
Leather Mitt can’t commit yes or no
Leather Mitt can’t commit yes or no
He says he’ll cut taxes
But people the facts is
It’s ain’t necessarily so

Squirming Herm says he just doesn’t know
Canny Cain claims he just doesn’t know
Whom his hands were petting
He’s good at forgetting
The names of the dames who’d said whoa.

Chorus
And we’re stuck
With the pick of them
The rank oil slick of them
God we’re sick of them
All of them

Additional verses
Cute Newt is a hoot of a show
That Ole Newt is a hoot of a show
You say Mister Gingrich
Speaks straight in plain English
But it ain’t necessarily so.

Michelle Bachman, her eyes have a glow
Hair gel Bachman, her eyes have a glow
She claims she hears Jesus
Then swears to appease us
It ain’t necessarily so

Repeat chorus

Additional verses
Rick Perry’s a merry follow
Slick Perry’s a merry fellow
He tells us elect him
But just don’t expect him
To remember what he should know

Obama’s a vote gigolo
Oh the Pres is a vote gigolo
He ran as a changer
But change is a stranger
In a partisan imbroglio

I’m sharing these verses to show
Like Larry and Curly and Moe*
When candidates say so and so
It ain’t necessarily so

* The infamous Three Stooges.
