Paddy Wagon Processions

 

Original song lyrics by Chrome Dome Mike Kimbro

 

Please read along to my spoken verse performance.

 

 

VERSE 1

 

Here's a topic on which I'm quite keen:

 

The prospect of a White House moving day.

 

Old residents drive off in a limousine.

 

And personal effects are then hauled away.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

Will today's White House residents.

 

Make it to the end of their lease?

 

Or would the POTUS leave in less elegance?

 

Say, a vehicle employed by the police.

 

 

CHORUS

 

The standard kind of procession.

 

Is led by a carriage with a coffin.

 

But today's new form of procession.

 

Leaves a 1600 address quite often.

 

Let's resist the urge to impeach,

 

Until it's there, well within our reach...

 

The last of those paddy wagon processions.

 

 

VERSE 3

 

I have bought cars just to take them apart.

 

But collecting strange vehicles is cockeyed.

 

Except for the one which helps Donald depart.

 

I'd make room in my garage for that ride.

 

 

CHORUS

 

The standard kind of procession.

 

Is led by a carriage with a coffin.

 

But today's new form of procession.

 

Leaves a 1600 address quite often.

 

Let's resist the urge to impeach,

 

Until it's there, well within our reach...

 

The last of those paddy wagon processions.

 

 

The End
