No tea for you, Tillerman!

So what's been missing from the national campaign has been catchy theme music. Clinton had Fleetwood Mac and "Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow". Reagan captured the 80's in a nutshell with Bobby McFerrin's "Don't Worry, Be Happy". But nothing so far that has really distilled the campaign message down to some good guitar hooks and a nice beat you can dance to.

Then, of course, we turned master criminal Cat Stevens away from our shores (Take THAT "Peace Train"), and the perfect song for the current administration leapt out, like Athena from the head of Zeus:
It's not time to make a change, just relax and take it easy
You're still young that's your fault,
there's so much you have to know
Find a girl, settle down, if you want to, you can marry
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy
I was once like you are now, and I know that its not easy
to be calm, when you've found something going on.
But take your time, think a lot, think of everything you've got
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not

Now tell me if that's not perfect? Even better, you can use it and what can he do? Come over here and sue us? Hah! He's not even allowed in! Throw swing-time beat behind it and you can just see folk bopping around to it at the Inaugeration

More later,
