LYRICS for It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Rico
Don Caron

It’s beginning to look a lot like RICO
The more and more we know
It began with a major gaffe
By a former Chief of Staff
The Power Point that came from Mark Meadows

It’s beginning to look a lot like Rico
What they have in store
The congressional inquiry
Now has in their hands the key
To expose much more

Dig to the roots and they’re all in cahoots
Yet they say it’s just all a myth
Run out the clock ‘cause they don’t want to talk
And now they’re all pleading the fifth
They think they will be off the hook as midterms come forthwith

It’s beginning to look a lot like RICO
Justice in arrears
And the guilty will start to sing
To avoid being in the ring of the Racketeers

They decided to blame an emergency claim
That the Chinese had interfered
Mailed ballots are void or they just magically disappeared
The election would be overturned and that’s when it got weird

It’s beginning to look a lot like RICO
None can be excused
For once the Donald was right, therewith
When he said those who plead the fifth
Are guilty of crimes which they’re accused of.

It’s beginning to look a lot like RICO
Watergate looks pale
It was a Criminal Enterprise
So none should be surprised
When they land in jail
With no a chance of bail

by Meredith Wilson

“It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” is a Christmas song written in 1951 by Meredith Willson (known for his musical, The Music Man, among other things). The song was originally titled “It’s Beginning to Look Like Christmas”. The song has been recorded by many artists, but was a hit for Perry Como and The Fontane Sisters with Mitchell Ayres & His Orchestra in September 18, 1951.. Bing Crosby recorded a version on October 1, 1951, which was also widely played.

A popular belief in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, holds that Willson wrote the song while staying in Yarmouth’s Grand Hotel. The song makes reference to a “tree in the Grand Hotel, one in the park as well…”; the park being Frost Park, directly across the road from the Grand Hotel, which still operates in a newer building on the same site as the old hotel. It also makes mention of the five and ten which was a store operating in Yarmouth at the time.

It is also possible that the “Grand Hotel” Willson mentions in the song was inspired by the Historic Park Inn Hotel in his hometown of Mason City, Iowa. The Park Inn Hotel is the last remaining hotel in the world designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright, and is situated in downtown Mason City overlooking central park.

Meredith Willson incorporated the song into his 1963 Broadway musical Here’s Love, where it is sung in counterpoint to the newly composed song “Pine Cones and Holly Berries”.

Johnny Mathis recorded the song for his 1986 album Christmas Eve with Johnny Mathis; this version gained popularity after its inclusion in the film Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. Gradually, Mathis’s recording began to receive wide radio airplay, and for the past several years this version has been a Top 10 Christmas hit.
