posted in: Political Parody | 1



 

One of the hot, current discussions is the one regarding the flagrant ethics violations by certain justices on the Supreme Court, specifically Justice Thomas and Justice Alito. Despite glaring conflicts of interest, thanks to their wives, they refuse to recuse themselves.

LYRICS
Don Caron

Ginni, Ginni wha’dya turn into?
We gotta problem with you and your man
You know the judge had an oath that he swore to
He violates it ‘cause he knows he can

Ginni, we’ll give you a number
To show he’s disqualified
Ginni, give Clarence this number

28 US code 455
Means your hubby is disqualified
28 US code 455
Rules for judges are still alive

Ginni, Ginni you know that you’re guilty
‘Cause you were right there insurrecting your pants off
It means that Thomas and Alito must now recuse
They lie to us and lie to themselves it’s abuse

Ginni show Clarence this number
Show it to Alito too
Ginni can’t change this number

28 US code 455
Those two judges are disqualified
28 US code 455
Rules for judges still alive

You got it (we got it) you got it
It’s a fact you can’t contort
You got it (we got it) you got it
Pass it on, Pass it on to the court

Hey, Ginni your hubby’s in slumber
We think he needs to be shrived
We need to disencumber

28 US code 455
Thomas and Alito are disqualified
28 US code 455
Rules for judges are still alive

Ginni, Ginni too corrupt to care
(28 US code 455)
Your husband is slime. You make quite a pair.
(28 US code 455)
28 US code 455

28 US code 455
28 US code 455
28 US code 455

ABOUT THE ORIGINAL SONG

“867-5309/Jenny” is a song written by Alex Call and Jim Keller and performed by Tommy Tutone that was released on the album Tommy Tutone 2 (1981) through Columbia Records. It peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the Rock Top Tracks chart in April 1982. The song led to a fad of people prank calling unsuspecting victims by dialing 867-5309 and asking for “Jenny”.

Lead guitarist Jim Keller, interviewed by People in 1982, said: “Jenny is a regular girl, not a hooker. Friends of mine wrote her name and number on a men’s room wall at a bar. I called her on a dare, and we dated for a while. I haven’t talked with her since the song became a hit, but I hear she thinks I’m a real jerk for writing it.”

On March 28, 2008, Tommy Tutone lead singer Tommy Heath stated on the WGN Morning News that the number was real and it was the number of a girl he knew. As a joke, he wrote it on a bathroom wall in a motel where they were staying. “We laughed about it for years,” he said.

However, in a June 2004 interview with Songfacts, co-writer Alex Call explained his version of the song’s real origins:

Despite all the mythology to the contrary, I actually just came up with the ‘Jenny,’ and the telephone number and the music and all that just sitting in my backyard. There was no Jenny. I don’t know where the number came from, I was just trying to write a 4-chord Rock song and it just kind of came out. This was back in 1981 when I wrote it, and I had at the time a little squirrel-powered 4-track in this industrial yard in California, and I went up there and made a tape of it. I had the guitar lick, I had the name and number, but I didn’t know what the song was about. This buddy of mine, Jim Keller, who’s the co-writer, was the lead guitar player in Tommy Tutone. He stopped by that afternoon and he said, ‘Al, it’s a girl’s number on a bathroom wall,’ and we had a good laugh. I said, ‘That’s exactly right, that’s exactly what it is.’

I had the thing recorded. I had the name and number, and they were in the same spots, ‘Jenny… 867-5309.’ I had all that going, but I had a blind spot in the creative process, I didn’t realize it would be a girl’s number on a bathroom wall. When Jim showed up, we wrote the verses in 15 or 20 minutes, they were just obvious. It was just a fun thing, we never thought it would get cut. In fact, even after Tommy Tutone made the record and ‘867-5309’ got on the air, it really didn’t have a lot of promotion to begin with, but it was one of those songs that got a lot of requests and stayed on the charts. It was on the charts for 40 weeks.

I’ve met a few Jennys who’ve said, “Oh, you’re the guy who ruined my high school years.” But for the most part, Jennys are happy to have the song.

“There was no Jenny,” Call also told a Tampa, Florida, columnist in June 2009. “The number? It came to me out of the ether.”
