New Marsden Campaign Song

At This Rate, He Won’t Be “King of the Vote”

Thanks to Riley and BVBL for the inspiration.

So it turns out that Delegate David Marsden (D-41) has rented a little hovel so he can try to run for the State Senate Seat being vacated by Attorney General-elect Ken Cuccinelli. When I saw this news, a classic old song came to mind. You really don’t need to change the lyrics in the first verse, either!

Trailers for sale or rent
Rooms to let, fifty cents.
No phone, no pool, no pets
I ain't got no cigarettes
Ah, but . . . two hours of pushin' broom
Buys a . . . eight by twelve four-bit room
I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road.

Here is a comic version of the song featuring Dean Martin and Roger Miller:

Anyone who wants to have fun writing a parody, be my guest!
