I Got You Abe (Lincoln Memorial) 

[On Republican Self-Help]

To "I Got You Babe"

(Words and Music by Sonny Bono)

Parody Lyrics by Marcy Shaffer

Arranged by Greg Hilfman

THEY SAY WE STRAY FROM PLAYING STRAIGHT. 
WITH FEET OF CLAY TODAY LIKE WATERGATE. 
THE TIMES I FEAR I MIGHT AGREE: 
I PEER ON BACK TO 1863. 
 
ABE. 
I GOT YOU ABE. 
I GOT YOU ABE. 
 
THEY SAY TO BE ASHAMED, BUT WAIT: 
FOR WHO –- YES, YOU! -- PROCLAIMED “EMANCIPATE!” 
THE DEMOCRAT HIGH HORSE JUST CAN’T 
COMBAT THE KARMA OF ULYSSES GRANT. 
 
ABE. 
I GOT YOU ABE. 
I GOT YOU ABE. 
 
SO A DEADLINE COULD BE DRAWN, 
YOU PRETTY MUCH SAID: "BRING IT ON!" 
AND AS THE MAN OF “FOUR SCORE” 
YOU ALSO BEGAN A CIVIL WAR! 
 
WHEN FLIGHTY MOOSH FROM MR. BUSH 
INVITES A DISUNITING SORT OF PUSH. 
I HOLD TIGHT TO THIS MIGHTY PLUS: 
THE UNION QUIT ITS SPLIT BECAUSE OF US. 
 
ABE. 
I GOT YOU ABE. 
I GOT YOU ABE. 
 
I GOT YOU TO READ AND NOTE  
WHEN I NEED AN ANTIDOTE. 
I GOT YOU AS EPILOGUE 
WHEN I'VE GOT TO WAG THE DOG. 
I GOT YOU REMINDING ME: 
HONESTY'S SPELLED "G.O.P." 
I GOT YOU, SOMETIMES I’VE THOUGHT: 
YOU’RE THE ONLY THING I’VE GOT... 
 
I GOT YOU ABE. 
 
I GOT YOU ABE. 
I GOT YOU ABE. 
I GOT YOU ABE. 
I GOT YOU ABE. 
I GOT YOU ABE. 
I GOT YOU ABE. 
I GOT YOU ABE.
