I tried by best
asked real nice
pleaded once
begged her twice

See, I explained
she wasn’t scorned
but she was told
and she was warned

You know I’m patient
I dealt with Pelosi
This one should be easy
I tell you but no, she

is way out of line
pushy, bossy
I guess that some men
like their women saucy

but I know restraint
is the key to success
I asked that she stop
she persisted

We played the game
She caused a scene
And I resorted
to rule 19
(clause 2)

A master tactician
Just watch and you’ll see
That little provision
I found was the key

A path to obstruction
with so little drama
It’s what I do
Just talk to Obama

You try to impute
I move to suppress
Senator, take your seat
She persisted

I remember a time
when they stayed in the house
fixed up their hair and your drink and a plate and then
Greet you with a smile
content as a spouse
don’t they know, we’re just tryin’ to make this place great again?

I don’t understand it
I’m scared, I confess
Cause I shut her down
She persisted

She Persisted (x3)
