Georgie and Bert, an American Folk Opera

SUBPOENA TIME

(sung to the tune of “Summertime” from Porgy and Bess!)

Subpoena time,
And the shillin’ ain’t easy
Rats are jumpin’
Somethin’ rotten is nigh

For Cheney’s rich
But your karma’s not cookin’
So hush like ol’ Libby
Don’t decry

Come Thursday morning
You’re gonna go down swingin’
Then you’ll get your bling
And your take on the sly

But on that morning
Don’t say nothin’ I warn you
Of Cheney and Georgie’s standing lies

Subpoena time,
And the shillin’ ain’t easy
Rats are jumpin’
Somethin’ rotten is nigh

For Cheney’s rich
But your karma’s not cookin’
So hush like ol’ Libby
Don’t decry
