Bill Nelson - The Nowhere Man

Once was a politician, slick Bill by name
Who came to instant fame,
Just by appearing (to appear)
As a mirage, sometimes far and then quite near.

When interviewed by the news
And asked to express his views,
His stock answer which he had down pat,
Was, 'I'd rather not answer that.'

What about the Old-crocks in your party
Seems some new blood would be in order,
And, after thinking much too long
'I'd rather not answer that.' (It's a group to which I belong.)

And about the perverts that are in Congress,
It seems that the Republicans have distress.
Don't the Democrats have the same,
'I'd rather not answer that.' (And share the blame.)

Then there's the matter of insurance cost,
Were not you the one time Commission boss?
'Wait' says he, 'That's old hat,
And I'd rather not answer that.'

Are you in bed with Schumer, Biden and Kennedy
Just to mention these three,
Members of the Blue State henchmen?
'I'd rather not answer that.' He replies again.

So what do you stand for may I ask.....
'Too late,
I'd rather not answer that.',
I've got to dash.

Nowhere Man

He's a real nowhere man,
Sitting in his nowhere land,
Making all his nowhere plans
For nobody.

Doesn't have a point of view,
Knows not where he's going to,
Isn't he a bit like you and me?
Nowhere man, please listen,
You don't know what you're missing,
Nowhere man, the world is at your command.

He's as blind as he can be,
Just sees what he wants to see,
Nowhere man can you see me at all?
Doesn't have a point of view,
Knows not where he's going to,
Isn't he a bit like you and me?
Nowhere man, don't worry,
Take your time, don't hurry,
Leave it all till somebody else
Lends you a hand.

He's a real nowhere man,
Sitting in his nowhere land,
Making all his nowhere plans
For nobody.

Certainly not me or you.

Sharp cutting and direct, although I do not know Bill Nelson, I am familiar with 'Nowhere Man' (Beatles) . Excellent description of political clowns.
