The Flimflam Man
Wham bam thank you for your vote.
I was for it only yesterday,
The day before, I cannot recollect.
And a year ago - forget it.
But today I am against it.
I think so positively.
But I reserve the right tomorrow
To be for it, or against it.
Damn, now I forget,
What I am for, or against.
What was the question again?
Yes, I understand the question now,
And I will take it under advisement.
Excuse me sir.
But you are blocking my view.
I need to see my traffic sign.
Yes, I am remember now,
I am against it.
But why is it now
Why is that man out there
Flying a kite?
Why is that key
Upon my traffic light?
I hope he is not
A Ben Franklin Liberal,
But there is a storm
Brewing up in America.
Zap crackle pop pop pop.
Have you ever seen fried flimflam?
That when the truth hits the fan,
With his flimflam fans,
It is a Liberal Franklin out “Right” lie.
But what is “Left” may be the truth.
Let the flimflam man decide for us.
He does like greed,
I mean Franklin green.
Especially save in safes overseas,
Secret Swiss flimflam accounts.
And Bermuda flimflam tax havens.
He does like outsourcing greed’s Franklin.
And try to fry those that fly a Free Speech kite.
There is one thing
About a flimflam speech,
That after hearing it
You have to go.
And that is certainty.
