Just a little something I wrote because I am disabled and have to much free time (in honor of John
Boehner).
Coward of the country. (sung to the tune “Coward of the county” by Kenny Rodgers).

Everyone considered him the coward of the country
He’d never stood one single time to prove the country wrong.
His mama named him Johnny, but folks just called him yellow,
Something always told me they were right all along

He was only in his twenties when the navy didn’t want him
So mommy took care of Johnny,’cause he was the lazy son.
I still recall the final words the navy said to Johnny,
“Son you have no backbone, a cowardly politician is what you must become”

“Promise me, son, not to do the things I’ve done
I’ve always tackled trouble when I can
It won’t mean you’re weak if you turn the other cheek
I hope you’re old enough to understand,
Son, you always have to fight to be a man.”

There’s someone for everyone, and Johnny’s love was Nancy.
In Pelosi’s arms he didn’t have to prove he was a man.
One day while he was working, the republicans came calling
They asked if he’d dump Nancy but he was threw with them.

Johnny opened up the door, to all the democrats lying
The torn bills, the shattered laws was is where he took his stand.
He trashed the Bill of Rights, and spat on the founders picture.
As the tears fell down his laughing face, he heard these words again:

“Promise me, son, not to do the things I’ve done
I’ve always tackled trouble when I can
It won’t mean you’re weak if you turn the other cheek
I hope you’re old enough to understand,
Son, you always have to fight to be a man.”

The republicans just laughed at him when he walked the halls of Congress;
All of them got up when Johnny stood and took the floor
When Johnny turned around they said, “Hey look! old yeller’s leaving,”
But you could’ve heard a pin drop when Johnny ran right out the door.

Sixty years of bawling were bottled up inside him.
He wasn’t holding nothing back — he still new how to crawl.
When Johnny left the White house, not a single law was standing.
He said, “This one’s for Nancy, as he watched the last one fall. (And I heard him say,)

“I promised you all, not to do the things I’ve done
I run away from trouble when I can
Now please don’t think I’m weak, because I am a lying sneak,
And people, I should hope you understand
about all the times that I tucked tail and ran.

Everyone considered him the coward of the country.
