If You Love That Politician


C G7 Someone had the right idea out in Iowa. C - C7 Palo Alto County had its own straw poll. F Folks who listened to their radio C A7 Were told to flush their toilets, so D7 G7 Their candidate might win the Super Bowl. C G7 Folks in Emmetsburg have got things in perspective, E7 And good common sense that they rely upon. F When the beaming smiles and golden throats, C A7 Come shaking hands and begging votes, D7 G7 The folks in Emmetsburg head for the john. C G7 C If you love that politician, pull the chain. G7 Send the world of woe and trouble down the drain. C C7 F F7 It's the road to satisfaction; it's a natural reaction. C G7 C If you love that politician, pull the chain.

If you like the things he said, use your head.
You can show the world you think he's thoroughbred.
Choose a favorite son or daughter with a little running water.
If you like the things he said, use your head
.


F C C7 Do you get that familiar feeling, F C C7 When you hear the things they say? F When they hum their familiar tunes, C A7 Do your thoughts all turn to prunes? D7 G7 Are you headed for Hernando's Hideaway?

If the man gets through to you, use your loo.
If he's not number one, he's number two.
He's the greatest guy on earth, why don't you show him what he's worth?
If the man gets through to you, use your loo.

Do you get that familiar feeling,
When you hear the things they say?
When they hum their familiar tunes,
Do your thoughts all turn to prunes?
Are you headed for Hernando's Hideaway?

If you love that politician, pull the chain, pull the chain.
Send the world of woe and trouble down the drain.
It's the road to satisfaction; it's a natural reaction.
If you love that politician, pull the chain.

When you see the ruling gentry, well, the answer's elementary.
If you love that politician, pull the chain.

(Words and music by Tom Paxton, 1985)
