MONICA!

A libretto in search of a composer

"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

Lonely.

I'm President Lonely.

But I guess I'll just have to muddle through.
