Our ode to Governor Sanford
What if your state lost a governor?
What if your state lost a governor in the wilds of Argentine?
When your Houses passed a law, there'd be no one there to sign.
Foul play might be suspected, but perhaps he was playin' just fine.
What if your state lost a governor to the wiles of Argentine?
'Twas an event most queer: the governor disappeared
From South Carolina, God-fearing South Carolina!
Was it kidnapping or capture? Or a case of early rapture?
No, it seems the gov had met a love and went running off to catch her!
What if your state lost a governor to a quest for true romance?
Before you criticize, take a walk in Sanford's pants.
He didn't break family values
'cause his wife had told him, "Good riddance!"
What if your state lost a governor in a case of blue romance?
In these dire financial times, when everyone's pinching dimes,
It's a governor's mission to provide his state relief from
Our economic wreckage...that was the point of Sanford's emissage!
Well, you must concede he did succeed
In bringing home a stimulus package!
What if your state lost a governor to a wild weekend party
With an exotic and delicious South American Hottie?
Would you be morally outraged,
Or just jealous you couldn't be that naughty?
What if your state lost a governor to a South American Hottie
I don't know why you're getting so distressed
It's just a simple case of man and his mistress
A dollar is a dollar and a dime is a dime
We'd sing another chorus but we're off to Argentine to find
a South American Hottie.
