CHUTZPAH

CHUTZPAH
(To tune of “High Hopes,” by Jimmy Van Heusen and Sammy Cahn, and popularized by Frank Sinatra)

Once there was a senator who
Thought he’d make a financial coup
Had a relative he knew
Owned an energy plant
And he had Chutzpah
He had Chutzpah
Nerve, unreserved
Fervent Chutzpah
Chairs on a swell committee,
He’s sitting pretty
He deigns who can and who can’t
Oops, there goes another government grant
Oops, there goes another government grant
Oops, there goes another government grant

We’ve all known a congressman said
That he’d voted no when instead
He was off with a red-head
Let him dare to deny
But he has Chutzpah
He has Chutzpah
He has gall, buildings tall
We call Chutzpah
So when he’s in a corner
Think he’s a goner
No way, and here is the why
Oops, here comes another Washington lie
Oops, here comes another Washington lie
Oops, here comes another Washington lie

Reprise:

When it’s half-truths their telling you
Poop their selling you
Need I further explain?
Oops, there goes another vote down the drain
Oops, there goes another vote down the drain
Oops, there goes another vote down the drain
