LYRICS to KAVANAUGH

Kavanaugh

It’s so obvious
that you’re a liar
Your back-talkiness
Your pants on fire
We all know a boof is not a fart
All those foolish comments on your part
Never before has someone been more . . .

Infelicitous
In every way
Rude and petulant,
It’s not okay
So defensive and oh, so paranoid
So few places that could be employed
The Supreme Court would not be one of those

Yes, it’s so unfair
So long ago
Why should it matter now?
Just let it go
Except that you are wanting to assume
A job where you control each woman’s womb
And we know it’s exactly why you are here.

It’s inexcusable
that they’d pick you
So many qualified
Not just a few
You’d boof the country into oblivion
With your partisan criterion.
Doubt if there cold be a worse choice than you.

“Unforgettable” by Irving Gordon

The most popular version of the song was recorded by Nat King Cole in 1951 from his album Unforgettable (1952), arranged by Nelson Riddle.

A non-orchestrated version of the song recorded in 1952 is featured as one of the seven bonus tracks on Cole’s 1998 CD reissue of 1955’s otherwise completely instrumental album, Penthouse Serenade.

Cole recorded the tune anew in a stereo version of the Riddle arrangement, for the album The Nat King Cole Story (1961).

In 1991, after Elvis Presley’s musical director Joe Guercio had the idea, Cole’s original 1951 recording of the song was edited and remixed to create a duet with his daughter, Natalie. The remixed version reached number 14 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and also number three on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.

The song also won three awards at the 34th Annual Grammy Awards (1992): Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Traditional Pop Vocal Performance.

Nat Cole’s original recording was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2000.

    Sadly so accurate. So very scary that they will most likely put him on the Supreme Court. It’s the destruction of our highest court.

    This, “Kavanaugh”, was almost as painful to watch as that fiasco of a hearing. We have GOT to vote those evil old bastards out of office and start clean. I really appreciate your using your multi-talents to tell the reality for all of us. I share your songs with a number of people and urge them to become patrons.
