During the last election we had a good deal of fun back east following your senatorial contest out here. I'm from Massachusetts, and I feel that we have a certain right to gloat over the other states because Massachusetts is after all the only state with three senators. Anyway, here's a salute to your new junior senator:
Hollywood's often tried to mix
Show business with politics
From Helen Gahagan
To Ronald Reagan?
But Mr. Murphy is the star
Who's done the best by far.
Oh, gee, it's great!
At last we've got a senator who can really sing and dance.
We can't expect America to win against its foes
With no one in the Senate who can really tap his toes.
The movies that you've seen
On your television screen
Show his legislative talents at a glance.
Should Americans pick crops? George says "No,
'cause no one but a Mexican would stoop so low."
And after all, even in Egypt, the pharaohs
Had to import Hebrew braceros.
Think of all the musicals we have in store.
Imagine: "Broadway Melody of Nineteen Eighty-Four."
Yes, now that he's a Senator, he's really got the chance
To give the public a song and dance!
