The Too Many Candidate Blues

The Too Many Candidate Blues

Woke up this mornin’
I turned on the tube
Saw 10 white guys in black suits
All lookin’ like rich boobs

I got the too many candidate blues

They said they was runnin’
To be our president
There’s so many I’m hopin’
Some’ll give up for lent

I got the too many candidate blues

    Dylan has nothing on you! Esp. love the professional “Cup o Politics” signage in the background. :)
