( Chappaquiddick Bridge song lyrics )
( QUAINT LITTLE )
BRIDGE ON CHAPPAQUIDDICK
Copyright 2009 - MickTerry.com

Following his brothers' footsteps,
Teddy was to be a star.
Ev'rything in place & priv'leged,
but then he had to drive that car.
If only he had not been drinking.
If only he'd not fooled around.
If only he had been clear-thinking,
then Mary Jo might not have drowned.

A  There's a QUAINT LITTLE
    BRIDGE ON CHAPPAQUIDDICK.
    His heritage ended that day
    on the short road to the top.
    There's a QUAINT LITTLE
    BRIDGE ON CHAPPAQUIDDICK.
    Just a slight, unexplained delay
    & a minor cover-up.

Partying with campaign workers,
Teddy left with Mary Jo.
'Though she had left her keys & purse there,
he'd help her catch the ferry home.
She'd told no friends of this connection.
& driving just a bit too fast,
they headed in the wrong direction.
They left the bridge & made a splash.

    CHORUS  
A

        Dive, dive to the bottom of the pond.
        The car flipped upside-down.
        Dive, dive. Ev'ry thing had gone all wrong.
        One lived, the other drowned.

The following events were sketchy.
Witnesses were far & few.
A slapping on the wrist for Teddy
despite the contradicting truths.
Extinguished Senator from Massachusetts
had a brain tumor Two-Thousand-Nine.
His autopsy said the tumor focused
on that mem'ry back in Sixty-Nine

B  of A QUAINT LITTLE
    BRIDGE ON CHAPPAQUIDDICK.
    His heritage ended that day
    on the short road to the top.
    That damned QUAINT LITTLE
    BRIDGE ON CHAPPAQUIDDICK.
    Just a slight, unexplained delay
    & a minor cover-up.

8-27-09:
Senator Edward Kennedy died from a brain tumor.

7-18-69:
Senator Edward Kennedy failed to report driving off a bridge
into a pond until after the inverted sunken car was discovered
the following day, with the body of Mary Jo Kopechne inside.
Despite the 11 hour time lapse & severe inconsistencies in testimony
& evidence, Kennedy was given a two month suspended sentence.
He continued his post as a powerful US Senator until his death,
although he delayed his plans to run for the Presidency.
