"President Lonely" (a ballad)
CLINTON: I've got deputies and bureaucrats
Who fulfill my every thought.
And soldiers, sailors, and Marines
To fight battles I want fought.
There's no one who's got more power,
I'm the leader of all that's free
But if you subtract the flags and lackeys, I'm just
I'm President Lonely.
But I guess I'll just have to muddle through.
