To Be The Head Of A Country—What A Job!


To be the head of a country—What a job!
Meeting after meeting with people who smile
It’s not easy to please a hungry mob.

Into every hand some grease I daub
A friendship that sticks is quite worthwhile
To be the head of a country—What a job!

With my supporters I have to hobnob
Never too long ’cause I must remain mobile
It’s not easy to please a hungry mob.

It’s astounding how many seek to rob
A careful note on each I compile
To be the head of a country—What a job!

I detour to drink tea with sweet nabob
The rich donate hoping I am servile
It’s not easy to please a hungry mob.

The internal workings are most macabre
Some days I’d rather work in a woodpile
To be the head of a country—What a job!
It’s not easy to please a hungry mob.
