The Ballad of Mitt Romney and the Family Hound

Hope you all enjoy this one. It happens to be the first song (the Jed Clampett version) that I ever learned on banjo, and, trust me, it wasn't pretty.

Come and listen to my story bout a man named Mitt
Who decided one day to take the family on a trip
Now the family car, it only seated six
And that meant the dog was in a big fix

The roof that is, in a case and all, no fun at all

Well before you know they all jump into the car
And Mitt Jr. says, I sure hope we’re not going far
Mitt tells them all they are Canada bound
And this causes stomache problems for the family hound.

Loose bowels that is, oh oh

Now it’s time to think about the way that his mind works
He’s already proven he can be a real big jerk
He can’t plan a vacation for 6 people and a hound
So how can ever make the country fiscally sound

That’s the big question. No answer from these parts, that’s for sure


  1. PLEASE don't give up your day job! Good Lord, that might make some Dem's vote Republican!! :)
    Nice job, I think :)

  2. nice idea.. thanks for sharing.

  3. Brilliant minds are obviously thinking along the same lines - here's my version of "The Ballad of Mitt" (no banjo playing, I'm afraid!)
