D A7 John Ashcroft went to meet the press; he faced the microphones. D His heart was filled with righteousness, his voice like God's trombones. D7 G But then he saw the statue that was set behind him there. A7 D It was "The Spirit of Justice", yes, but one of her breasts was bare.
John Ashcroft shook with horror at this gleaming marble globe.
It thrust itself out toward him from a loosely falling robe.
It was so hard to concentrate on those he there accused,
With that marble breast behind him, poor John Ashcroft got confused.
Each time he saw the marble breast, the poor man was appalled.
He finally gave the order and a curtain was installed.
Now when he makes a statement, you will see him on the tube -
The curtain hides the statue, but you'll still see one big boob!
