mid-day time waster: edit those lyrics

earlier this week, in the most emphatic tones, mrs. clinton suggested, “i know what people are wondering, WHAT DOES HILLARY WANT?” although i don’t know everything hillary might want, i suspect that she would love for us to pen a celebratory ode that marks the end of her campaign.

for that reason, i’ve been working feverishly to produce a piece that is worthy of hillary’s epic defeat. right now i’ve got some of the lyrics down, but i need your help editing and suggesting revisions. the song’s title is bridesmaid and it will be sung to the tune of wilco’s muzzle of bees. thanks in advance for your help!

there’s a failed democratic candidate
desperate for vp
she’s always a bridesmaid
if you know what i mean

her furies shriek, some say they’re barking
denver! or at least vp
some fems so frightened
of so-called misogyny

the scepter slips ‘tween pantsuit knees
silently and suitably
whispering racial entendre
from the heights of glass ceiling
she cries misogyny

i’m assuming you got the message
produced by machine
the crackers dig her chili
if you know what that means

scepter slips ‘tween pantsuit knees
silently and suitably
whispering racial entendre
she cries misogyny

red bill blows through
sweat hand upon knee
half of it’s you, half is me
half of it’s you, half is me
