It was July of ’69,
You must login to vote
another coastal Massachusetts night
and if my wife is out of town
I guess it never ever even happened, right?
said Teddy to himself and hey
this pretty girl she needs a ride.
But the cah went in the watah.
What a pity he got out- she stayed inside.
She could'nt hold her breath for hours-
ain't that a bitch?
The night that Senator Ted Kennedy
drove off Chappaquidick bridge.
Now it's three AM in Washington
and swerving his constituents comes Pat.
He said despite all barriers
a senator must vote and that is that.
I guess there must be obstacles against which
even the rich cannot win
like the one Pat slammed his car into
after washing down some Percocets with gin.
Seems like nothin’ ever comes down too bad
Up on Georgetown ridge
even when Mary Jo Kopechne drowned
just off Chappaquidick bridge.
