lyrics

Uher 5000 (Popp, O'Donnell, Durand)

My name is Richard Nixon,
I’m not such a bad guy.
There’s some discrepancies in some of the recordings I made,
The missing eighteen-and-a-half minutes.
We all lose recordings,
Haven’t you ever erased your answering machine?
There seems to be a slight gap,
A slight gap in some of my chronicling.

Hey Dick Nixon, we’re on to you.
You erased the tape to cover Watergate.
Diverted attention to Spiro Agnew.
Dick Nixon, we’re on to you.

The audio nerds reeled up the words,
A fine-toothed comb and a war to wage.
Sinister voice used as a choice,
Pointed out by Alexander Haig.
It could be me, I’m no good with machines,
Neither is Rose Mary Woods.
The big red button always means something,
Tricky Dick wiped out the goods.

John Sirica couldn’t be quicker,
Subpoenaed sixty-four recordings made.
Nixon refused, Supreme Court not amused,
Turned them in later on that day.
Deep in cahoots with the rest of the suits,
Tapes released and the public floored.
Never alone when assuming the throne,
Spinning reels are always in record.

Hey Dick Nixon, we’re on to you.
Stand behind piano keys, use your dog
Checkers in your speech.
Pat by your side, with her fancy frosted ‘do.
Dick Nixon, we’re on to you.
We’re on to you.
