Exhuming McCarthy

  • You're beautiful more beautiful than me
    You're honorable more honorable than me
    Loyal to the Bank of America

    It's a sign of the times
    It's a sign of the times

    You're sharpening stones walking on coals
    To improve your business acumen
    Sharpening stones walking on coals
    To improve your business acumen

    Vested interest united ties landed gentry rationalize
    Look who bought the myth by jingo buy America

    It's a sign of the times
    It's a sign of the times

    You're sharpening stones, walking on coals
    To improve your business acumen
    Sharpening stones, walking on coals
    To improve your business acumen

    Enemy sighted, enemy met, I'm addressing the realpolitik
    Look who bought the myth, by jingo, buy America

    "Let us not assassinate this man further, Senator
    You've done enough
    Have you no sense of decency, sir?
    At long last, have you left no sense of decency?"

    We're sharpening stones, walking on coals
    To improve your business acumen
    Sharpening stones, walking on coals
    To improve your business acumen

    Enemy sighted, enemy met, I'm addressing the realpolitik
    You've seen start and you've seen quit
    (I'm addressing the table of content)
    I always thought of you as quick
    Exhuming McCarthy
