Yikes McGee: Songs

Warren G. Hardin'

(Yikes McGee)
Most historians consider Warren G. Harding to be
the worst President in history...
WARREN G. HARDIN’
I was there at the pardon
Of Warren G. Hardin'
At the graveyard last Veterans' Day
I was visitin' my kin
I saw him slip in
In a peculiar kind of a ghostily way.
"Hear my petition,"
Cried the apparition
As he reached his hands up to the sky
"God, hear my plea
Grant me my reprieve
I've finally found one more deserving than I."

So I no longer have to be
The worst president in history
And now that a new die is cast
A new low established
The torch shall be passed.

I knew in an instant
That I was a witness
He talked in tongues
And danced on his grave
He said, thank you George Bush,"
And then he said, "God forgive me,
But from the threshold of Hell
I have just been saved!"
By that man who replaces me
He surely surpasses me
He 's worse than I was by far
True, I never got a handle
On that Teapot Dome Scandal
But I never started a war!"

So I no longer have to be
The worst president in history
There's nothing more I can repent
But he'll burn in hell for his evil intent

"Yes, I died disappointed
But this newly-annointed
With so much blood on his hands
The way he lies and manipulates
The soundrel never hesitates
He has one foot in hell and his head in the sand."
Then Warren G. Hardin'
Picked a flower from the garden
Placed it on his own headstone
And prayed, "God if you could
It would do my heart good
Can you please tell the missus, I'm finally resting my bones.

And that I no longer have to be
The worst president in history
I'll go down with the liars and crooks
If you'd please clear my name in the history books.
Just please clear my name in the history books.
