Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off

Good News from the Resistance: Since the Midterms (40 flipped seats!), the Good News has been coming at us from left (Nancy) and right (the Senate). The Swamp is being drained and relocated … to prison. The emoluments lawsuit against our Crook-in-Chief is proceeding, the Trump Organization surely cooked its books, New York’s new Attorney General is having a tough time containing her excitement over going after the entire Trump  family, the Trump Inauguration Committee is under investigation for accepting illegal payments from foreign governments looking for favors and knowingly overpaying Trump Hotels for event space (negotiated by none other than favored daughter Ivanka), and New Jersey’s Attorney General is investigating Trump’s golf course for immigration fraud.

The big news, of course, is Mueller, the best secret-keeper in  D.C. No one knows where his investigation will lead (the Middle East?) or when it will end.  While you, Good News-seekers, eagerly await more subpoenas, plea deals and perp walks, you can now keep your spirits high with song: Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off pretty much sums up our sentiments since Our National Nightmare began. We’ve taken the liberty of rewriting a few lyrics. (Our apologies to the Gershwins).

Now, listen to Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, and sing along. Repeat frequently while awaiting more of Mueller’s Good News!

Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off (2018 version)

Things have come to a pretty pass
Our romance is growing flat
For you like this and the other
While I go for this and that
Goodness knows what the end will be
Oh, we are so unmoored
You stole the election, you weren’t the one
Something must be done

You like lying and we like prying
You like denying and we like implying
Lying prying denying implying
Let’s call the whole thing off

We say Stormy you say bore me
We say horny you say adore me
Stormy bore me horny adore me
Let’s call the whole thing off

We go for Nancy and you go for panties
We call you randy and you say you’re classy
Nancy, panties, randy, classy
Let’s call the whole thing off

We like indictments you like excitement
We like impeachment you like concealment
Indictments excitement impeachment concealment
Let’s call the whole thing OFF!
