Lyrics by Bob Gillet - (tune - These Foolish Things)

I'd like to lock you up in someone's basement

A cancelled One-O-Five, and no replacement

And unemployment rings

These foolish things remind me of you.


The starving farmers who can't make much money

Your Bomarc blunder never struck us funny

Inflation in the spring

These foolish things remind me of you.


You came, you saw, you promised all you had

But we've found out since then

That whatever you had,was pretty damn sad ...Sir.


And so we gather from this grim reflection

You'll be back farming come the next election

And unemployed you'll be

That foolish thing will remind you of me.
