Jenny kissed me when we met,

Jumping in a hoop from the floor;

Time, you thief, know you not,

Sink into that skull, law is clear:

Say she made the move, it’s no use,

Say what you’ll but law gets your throat;

Say it was her fault, no use,

She is a Jail bait.

Original Version

Jenny kissed me when we met,

Jumping from the chair she sat in;

Time, you thief, who love to get

Sweets into your list, put that in!

Say I’m weary, say I’m sad,

Say that health and wealth have missed me,

Say I’m growing old, but add,

Jenny kissed me.

(on receiving the Torture Report)

O, That this too too sordid mind would melt

With it what lapses it had allowed to creep-

Oh that the Senators had not pressed

The Torture Report be made public!Oh God! Oh God!

How weary, stale, flat and unprofitable,

Seem to me all the uses of this Hill!

Fie on’t! ah fie! ’tis an untended pig-sty,

That grows maggots; men rank and gross in nature

Possess it merely. That it should come to this!

ACT I

SCENE I. The White House. The Rose Garden

FRANCISCO at his post. Enter to him BERNARDO

BERNARDO

Who’s there?

FRANCISCO

Nay, answer me: were you on watch yesterday?

BERNARDO

Long live the Prez!

FRANCISCO

Bernardo?

BERNARDO

He.

FRANCISCO

You almost got yourself screwed up.

BERNARDO

‘Tis now struck twelve; no intruder, Francisco.

FRANCISCO

For this relief much thanks: ’tis bitter cold,

And I am sick at heart.

BERNARDO

Have you had quiet guard?

FRANCISCO

Not a mouse stirring.

BERNARDO

Well, good night.

If you do meet Horatio and Marcellus,

The rivals of my watch, bid them make haste.

FRANCISCO

I think I hear them. Stand, ho! Who’s there?

Enter HORATIO and MARCELLUS

HORATIO

Friends to this ground.

MARCELLUS

And liegemen to the Prez.

FRANCISCO

Give you good night.

MARCELLUS

O, farewell, honest soldier:

Who hath relieved you?

FRANCISCO

Bernardo has my place.

Give you good night.

Exit

MARCELLUS

Holla! Bernardo!

BERNARDO

Say,

What, is Horatio there?

HORATIO

A piece of him.

BERNARDO

Welcome, Horatio: welcome, good Marcellus.

MARCELLUS

What, has this thing appear’d again to-night?

BERNARDO

I have seen nothing.

HORATIO

Well, sit we down,

And let us hear Bernardo speak of this.

BERNARDO

Last night of all,

He scal’d the north fence of the House, Yes he

Did not cease though I did ask his steps freeze

And raise hands in abject surrender wait

For frisk and search,-

Enter Ghost

MARCELLUS

Peace, break thee off; look, where it comes again!

BERNARDO

In the same figure, like Andrew Jackson.

MARCELLUS

Thou art a scholar; speak to it, Horatio.

BERNARDO

Looks it not like A J? mark it, Horatio.

HORATIO

Most like: I must speak less scholarly then .

BERNARDO

It would be spoke to.

MARCELLUS

Question it, Horatio.

HORATIO

What art thou that usurp’st this time of night,

Together with that fair and warlike form

By which the native Indians were struck dumb

And that threw the Bankers on the east

in apoplectic rage, speak!

MARCELLUS

It is offended.

BERNARDO

See, it stalks away!

HORATIO

Stay! speak, speak! I charge thee, speak!

Exit Ghost and Renters

Here is a tip worth two cents,

Fellow Americans and leige men

to your Chief, name of the intruder

Is Omar Gonzalez.

I can be funny in a maudlin way

Don’t mean to but it’s sad;

Birds got it damn right their day full of songs

My shouldn’t we sing instead?

I’m stuck up all the day

Fed up with my lot

But I know what I have: Look at what I got

I got rhythm, I got music

And twinkle toes!

Who could ask for anything more?

I’ve got starlight I’ve got the mood

Who could ask for anything more?

Old Man Trouble, I don’t mind him

He can’t hear a word I say

I’ve got starlight, I’ve got sweet dreams,

Sock it to him,

maybe he’ll get it in the end.

music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin

I’ve been away from you a long time.


I never thought I’d miss you so.

Somehow I feel this time it’s real


White House I long to be.


The birds are singin’,

Ann is a-wingin’ 


The Air Force One ready for take off

I know that I shall look you up folks


Rominee, You’ve arrived.

Chorus:


Rominee,


How I love my ole Pappy


My dear old Rominee!



I’d give them an offer

That they can’t refuse!

Even Tagg want a shot at peace

Waitin’ for me, prayin’ for me

Rally round Rominee!

The folks up north won’t see me cringe

When ticker tape parade go by

Rominee, Rominee

Rominee, Rominee

I love my congregation (repeat)

Anita:

His-pan-ico!

By blood Lat-ino

It is OK in US of A!

Always there is a damn way

Always there are bills to pay

And the hellsapoppin!

But don’t you worry

And the sunlight streaming

And the natives steaming

Cool when the drug mules arrive

Hispanico!

By blood Latino

It is OK in US of A

girls:

I like to be in US of A

My credit always good at gunpoint

Man at the end gets the hint- pronto!

Bernardo

For a small fee in US of A

Anita

A shiv is what gets you discount

Bernardo

One look at us and they charge twice

Rosalio

But two fall when Chico whips his rod

Scotch, make it double, Joe while you are at it-

My thirst is not what we need concern now

I cadge freely your drinks, well what of it?

2.

Rage, rage against the dying of the light-

Nothing good can come out of it I know

Unless with booze wash this red-hot gullet.

3

I shall hold my life a ransom to thirst:

Dare not go gentle into night somehow

Like whipt cur on the run,- but first things first ,-

4

Sweet is the day but will live to regret:

Youth who lay hope more than day shall allow

Has nothing left but golden youth misspent

5.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight,

Time the bloody hound making a meal of

Hope, they ne’r even had a chance at it.

6.

Rage, rage against the dying of the light:

Life was a holy grail to seek and now

I know my life from youth up was mis-hit

Curse, bless, Oh does it matter in the least?
