By John Emory

They insult with a smile, they disdain compromise
They can ruin our republic with incessant lies
And they bully their critics on national TV
They behave like spoiled children, but this is the real GOP

They create a disaster, find others to blame
They follow their Master and never feel shame
They’re changing the rules to rewrite history
Yeah, it’s a disgrace, but this is now the real GOP

Oh, they just think of themselves, they can only complain
Do it all of the time
Oh, and their candidates sound so completely insane
And they don’t seem to mind

They’ll promise you nothing, while never conceding
They’ll carelessly cut what you need to stop bleeding
But they’ll root out their best, leave the worst in DC
Blame it all on yourself, if you voted for this GOP

Mmm-mmm, mmm-mmm
Mmm-mmm, mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm
Oh, they’ve no plans to propose, they can only complain
Do it all of the time
Oh, and their candidates sound so completely insane
They are out of their mind

They never are kind, but they often are cruel
They can do as they please, ‘cause they think we’re all fools
They won’t be accused, if they get their A.G.
But the worst they will do is take freedom from you
And this is now the real GOP



“She’s Always a Woman” is a song by Billy Joel from his 1977 album, The Stranger. It is a love song about a modern woman whom the singer has fallen totally in love with to the extent of falling for her endearing quirks as well as her flaws. The single peaked at No. 17 in the U.S. in Oct. 1978, and at No. 53 in the UK in 1986, when it was released as a double A-side with “Just the Way You Are”. It re-entered the UK chart in 2010, reaching No. 29.

The song was released as a single in 1978, following several other hits from The Stranger including “Just the Way You Are”, “Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song)” and “Only the Good Die Young”. The song entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart on August 12, 1978, and peaked at #17 on October 14 of that year. Musically, Joel has said that he was influenced by Gordon Lightfoot and his mellow acoustic guitar ballads. It is a love song that Joel wrote for his then wife, Elizabeth Weber. Elizabeth had taken over management of Joel’s career, and was able to put his financial affairs in order after Joel had signed some bad deals and contracts. She was a tough and savvy negotiator who could “wound with her eyes” or “steal like a thief”, but would “never give in”. Because of her tough-as-nails negotiating style, many business adversaries thought she was “unfeminine,” but to Joel, she was always a woman. The two eventually divorced in 1982.

Joel stated in an interview that he was attempting to replicate the fingerpicking common in folk guitar music. He accomplishes this by playing arpeggiated triads in the right hand. He also notes that the production was purposely minimal to capture the purity of the tune as a folk song.

Billboard Magazine described “She’s Always a Woman” as a “dramatic ballad.” Billboard particularly praised the “subtle orchestration” and “sophisticated melody,” which it found comparable to ballads by Bob Dylan and Paul Simon. Cash Box said that “the tune is melodic and flows sweetly; the lyric is precise and has something to say” and praised Joel’s singing.

Of historical note, an instrumental version of the song was heard playing on the plaza of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, just before the collapse of both towers. Captured by a cameraman filming nearby, the playing of the song was viewed as “surreal” against the backdrop of carnage and destruction.
