"Your Campaign"
— to the tune of "You're So Vain" by Carly Simon

(To be used in the event that Warren Beatty declares his candidacy and becomes something other than a media curiosity)

You're known for shagging starlets
from Mae West to Madonna and back
must've given you this hubris
you confuse "in the bag" with "in the sack"
You had one eye in the mirror
As you were slappin' five with Jack
And all the scribes read and quoted your op-ed
quoted your op-ed, and

{Refrain}

Your campaign
Just 'cause they'll hump you doesn't mean that they want you
Your campaign
You probably think they'll pull levers for you
Don't you? Don't you?

Your populism teased me
'Cause I am quite naive
Bush and Gore are both so sleazy
Their money-grubbin' makes me heave
But Bulworth was a shallow farce
And that's not your real
You talk a good game, they're just clouds in my latte
Clouds in my latte, and


{Refrain}

You talk a good game, they're just clouds in my latte
Clouds in my latte, and

{Refrain}

Well, I hear you got the backing of Alec and Kim
And Barbra and 'Lizbeth and Hugh
But your smarts have been spent going bimbo to bim
your last good movie was Parallax View
Well, your bungalow's where you oughta stay
I hate to break the news
your timber's in your pants; it's not presidential
not presidential

{Refrain}
