( Ronald Reagan song lyrics )
SAINT RONALD REAGANOMICS
Copyright 2004 - MickTerry.com

The rider-less horse parades alone,
with boots in backwards, while the drums,
their solemn cadence now intone
the respect from one half of the world.

It's curious how while someone lives,
we're not so ready to forgive
or overlook the negative
that has always been part of their stuff.

More curious how when someone dies,
the roles they played get sanctified
and dirty deeds get swept aside,
if not totally under the rug.

    SAINT RONALD, they only show your best,
    SAINT RONALD, as if some golden quest
    had kept your whole life occupied.
    But, you and me, we know inside
    it's not all as it seems.
    Don't we, SAINT RONALD?

There's Oliver North to Contradict
and tripling of the national debt,
while AIDS and poverty were picked
to be totally not your concern.

Your legacy will live on in schools.
Once music, drama, arts were tools.
Now, Reaganomics is the rule,
so diminishing what they will learn.

    CHORUS

        Am I the only one not enraptured
        by this rampant love fest?
        I seem to be the lone heretic,
        sadistically bent on blasphemy and sacrilege.

The way you saw things, Star Wars was real
and ketchup was a vegetable
and workers' rights had no appeal,
but then, Storm Troopers need loving, too.

You gave your support to apartheid.
You backed Saddam to join our side.
And death squads roamed with no need to hide.
But then, how does it all trickle down?

    CHORUS

As Hollywood sunset endings go,
your program had a lot to show.
The Great Communicator knows
he could still have a whole lot to say.

        Could this be your biggest role yet
        in The House on Simi Hill?
        By the way,
        regardless of believing your own press,
        you were not the only one responsible
        for the fall of the Soviet Union.
