SUMMARY OF SONGS

From The
Fifth Annual Headliner Award Skits

CAPITAL PRESS CLUB OF FLORIDA

HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN

Happy days are here again,
The session's high in gear again
Let us sing a song of cheer again
Legislature's here again.

Pork Choppers lead and we'll follow
Put off new tax bill tomorrow

There's no doubt about it now
We'll put the state to rout and how
Voters go to hell, we'll shout it now
Happy days are here again.

Now that the Legislature's on the hill
We'll smile, smile, smile.
Hunt up a lobbyist to pay your bill,
Mooch boys, that's the style.
Party, party, every night,
Per diem all the while.

So...

Tell your constituent you'll pass his bill
And smile,
smile,
smile.

DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION
(Doing What Comes Naturally)

Commission:
If your town is poor and its
Economy is draggin,
Follow our suggestions now
You'll drive a station wagon
A Buick station wagon.
We'll turn your barn into a zoo,
Put orange juice in your well.
A welcome station on your porch
To give the old hard sell

Cast: That comes naturally.

JOHNS COMMITTEE
(It's Later than you Think)

Investigate, the NAACP
Investigate, the University.
Investigate, the Klan and all but me.
Investigate, Investigate, Mark Hawes
Must get his fee.

Investigate, our Strickland is the sleuth
Investigate, the aged and the youth.
Investigate, don't mix the voter's booth
Investigate, and confiscate, but
Don't dig up the truth.
