Story behind the song
I've always tended to view most politicians as big bags of gas and what gives you gas?
Lyrics
Seek not for whom the bell tolls Just slip the damn bellringer a drink And hope that he'll forget to call your name Get yourself a good plea bargain And make sure it ain't a hard one so, Like beans and beer, you'll come back again Though your hand's in the till, and your snout's in the swill And you're sowing wild oats in your neighbour's field If you've got the goods on your dishonourable friends When you're in need, they'll be friends indeed You'll spring back up just like a weed Like beans and beer, you'll come back again My country, 'tis of thee that bought it Land of "hope we don't get caught" it's Palms with greasy linings, rainbow's ends And if your ratings start to drag Start a war, wear a flag Like beans and beer, you'll come back again If it looks like a duck and it walks like a duck And it quacks like a duck and it acts like a duck Well, only you would tell me it's a hen Though some shout "crook" over what you took Just wait by the oven till your books have cooked Like beans and beer, you'll come back again
