BIG MAN

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


             I.  the Big Man won't see you.
                 don't ask his right-hand man,
                 the footman or the sergeant at arms.
                 none of them will finger the Big Man.
                 no, no, no, no,
                 you can't drive a wedge.
                 no, no, no, no, no.
                 no, no, no, no,
                 executive privilege.
                 no, no, no, no, no.

            II.  the Big Man was sleeping.
                 his hands sold his arms.
                 his arms committed murder in the dark,
                 murder in the desert and the blue sea.
                 no, no, no, no,
                 Big Man was asleep.
                 no, no, no, no, no.
                 no, no, no, no,
                 and so was the veep.
                 no, no, no, no, no.

           III.  the judge heard the Big Man
                 say he was in bed,
                 the blankets and the sheets bloody red.
                 the judge gave the order: "cut off his head."
                 no, no, no, no,
                 you can't give a speech.
                 no, no, no, no, no.
                 no, no, no, no,
                 you have been impeached.
                 no, no, no, no, no.

        ENDING:  no, no, no, no
                 deniability.
                 no, no, no, no, no.
                 no, no, no, no,
                 can't have it both ways.
                 no, no, no, no, no.
                 no, no, no, no, no.
