Singing On The Campaign Trail

Tom McLaughlin

Humor by Tom McLaughlin

I am glad this campaign is almost over. It has been a rough road with all the negative advertising. If the candidates would only sing!

"Your nothing but a one horned, one eyed, flying purple people eater, a one horned, one eyed, flying purple people eater, a one horned, one eyed, flying purple people eater" yodeled Governor Ehrlich to Mayor O'Malley.

Yea? Your mother drives "A Yellow Submarine, a Yellow Submarine a Yellow Submarine!" warbled O'Malley back.

"I'm gonna wash that man right out of my hair, gonna wash that man right out of my hair and send him on his way," chortled Kristen Cox.

"All the votes are Brown, votes are Brown, on election day, I went for a walk, on an autumns day, Oh, Annapolis Dreamin! On inauguration Day! vocalized Brown

"Breakin Rocks in the .hot sun, I fought the law and.the law won, I fought the law.and the law won," trilled Doug Gansler, candidate for attorney general.

"Of course I went to law school, and took a law degree, and counseled all my clients, to plead insanity," serenaded Scott Rolle

"How much is that doggie in the window? The one with the waggley tail? How much is that doggie in the window? I do hope the Senate's for sale," Michael Steele purred

"Ben, the two of us need look no more, we both found, what we were looking for, with a friend to call my own, I'll never be alone, and you my friend will see, you've got a friend in me (You've got a friend in me"), intoned Ben Cardin( Michael Jackson, not much help to Ben Cardin!!!! Maybe "Din Din Din You're a better man than I am, Car..din"

"My daddy left home when I was three, and he didn't leave much for ma and me, just this old guitar and an empty bottle of booze, Now I don't blame him cause he run and hid, but the meanest thing he ever did, he went and named me "Duck."

"I'd rather have senility than schizophrenia any day"(Bon Jovi) chimed Roscoe Bartlett; or "Thou Golden Helmet of Mambrino with so illustrious a past, too long hast thou been lost to glory, Thou't rediscovered at last...I can hear the cuckoo singing in the cuckooberry tree..

Now all together!

So long sad times

Go long bad times

We are rid of you at last

Howdy gay times

Cloudy gray times

You are now a thing of the past

Happy days are here again

The skies above are clear again

So let's sing a song of cheer again

Happy days are here again

Altogether shout it now

There's no one

Who can doubt it now

So let's tell the world about it now

Happy days are here again

Your cares and troubles are gone

There'll be no more from now on

From now on ...

Happy days are here again

The skies above are clear again

So, Let's sing a song of cheer again

Happy times

Happy nights

Happy days

Are here again!

Vote Democratic!
