Lyrics

5. Crook in the White House by David Piper
There’s a fox in the henhouse
There’s a fox in the henhouse
There’s a fox in the henhouse
There’s a fox in the henhouse
Hide all the chickens
Guard mother goose
There’s a fox in the henhouse
And he’s runnin’ loose

There’s a crook in the White House!
There’s a crook in the White House!
There’s a crook in the White House!
There’s a crook in the White House!
Lock all the buttons
Scramble the codes
There’s a crook in the White House!
And he’s feeling his oats

How did we get here?
What happens next?
The farmer get a shotgun he got food to protect
The founders left directions
For how to prevent
But they did not include the crook as president
With a senate turning a blind eye.. to a bald faced lie..

There’s a fox in the henhouse
There’s a fox in the henhouse
It’s a five alarm fire
There’s a crook in the White House!

How did we get here? What happens next?
He got his hands around Uncle Sam’s neck

Scramble the buttons, Lock all the codes
There’s a crook in the White House!.. Everybody knows

For the fox; build a better fence
For this guy… leave a blank box, best bet!

The fox.. is an animal .. that’s his excuse
This crook.. may be human.. but I’ll tell you the truth
He’s just an an empty vessel
Full of greed and crass
And like a ship that sails
This, too, shall pass
There’s a crook in the White House!
