I GUESS WE’LL HAVE TO CHANGE THE CREW
(to the tune of “I Guess I’ll Have to Change My Plan” by Arthur Schwartz and Howard Dietz from the 1953 MGM musical film “The Band Wagon” featuring Fred Astaire.)
I guess we’ll have to change the crew
Those at the helm, have overwhelmingly, no clue
They’re loading for another broadside
When there’s a perfect storm near due.
We’re sailing on a leaky boat
And we could founder and go down, to stay afloat,
We’ve got to stow this rancor fouling D.C.
Set a course for some sanity.
By now you’ve caught the drift, my view
Throw overboard the whole damn crew.
