Donnie’s Song

Donnie’s Song

Refrain: Hi-ho, the story-O,
We’ll tell it high, we’ll tell it low,
Lie all the way to Glory-O.

I used to be a con-man-O,
Now politics is my game.
There’s not a lot of diff’rence, though,
We play it all the same.

You tell them what they want to hear,
Then say it all again,
Look in their eyes, and tell them lies,
Until they just give in.

Refrain: Hi-ho, the story-O
etc.
