LYRICS to STRANGERS ON THE RIGHT
Strangers on the right, invading Congress
Strangers on the right, impeding progress
They’ll put up a fight to liberals like you
Something in their eyes resembles fire
Roe v. Wade’s demise is their desire
Cutting down to size those States that still are blue
Strangers on the right,
to Europeans they are strangers on the right,
not seen in eons they will terrorize the left,
leave their hopes bereft,
Making known their stance today,
and taking welfare grants away.
Maybe good for goose, but not for gander
Where you cannot win, just gerrymander
Make sure that the House obeys no one but you
Strangers on the right, oh, calling foul
They are strangers on the right, throw in the towel
You will never get your way, never have a say.
Join a university if you desire diversity.
Ever since the right has been controlling,
Now you know for whom, the bell is tolling
They give me a fright, those strangers on the right!
Scooby dooby doo, dah dah dah dee dum etc
HISTORY OF THE SOURCE MATERIAL
“Strangers in the Night” is a song credited to Bert Kaempfert with English lyrics by Charles Singleton and Eddie Snyder. Kaempfert originally used it under the title “Beddy Bye” as part of the instrumental score for the movie A Man Could Get Killed.
The song was made famous in 1966 by Frank Sinatra, although it was initially given to Melina Mercouri, who thought that a man’s vocals would suit more to the melody and therefore declined to sing it.
Reaching #1 on both the Billboard Hot 100 chart and the Easy Listening chart, it was the title song for Sinatra’s 1966 album Strangers in the Night, which became his most commercially successful album. The song also reached #1 on the UK Singles Chart.
Sinatra’s recording won him the Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance and the Grammy Award for Record of the Year, as well as a Grammy Award for Best Arrangement Accompanying a Vocalist or Instrumentalist for Ernie Freeman at the Grammy Awards of 1967.
