What most concerned incoming freshman House representatives was getting a decent office location, preferably with large rooms and an impressive view. Thus, lucky charms flashed at the Rayburn House Office Building where the lottery for the order of office selections was held the other day.
I’VE GOT TO GET AN OFFICE WITH A VIEW
(To the tune of, “I’ve Got a Lot of Living to Do,” by Charles Strouse & Lee Adams, from the Broadway musical stage show, “Bye Bye Birdie (1960))
Don’t ask me about immigration.
Most importantly, what I have to do.
On this day, to hell with the nation.
I’ve got to get an office with a view.
If they jam me into a closet.
Lobbyists won’t think, I’m somebody who
keeps his word after their deposit.
I’ve get to get an office with a view.
With a window and view
who won’t assume
I’m a big wheel?
A crucial rep for making a deal.
I must plan for my reelection.
Some prestige, could help me there too.
So I’ll need an envied selection.
What’s climate change? I haven’t yet a clue.
But I know I’ll need an office with a view.
Yes, I’ve got to get an office with a view.
