All I want for Xms is my im peach ment

How much is that election in the window?

City sidewalks, slippry sidewalks whaaaa

When I was just a widdle girl
I asked my mother, what will I be
Will I be pretty
Will I be rich
Here's what she said to me
It's fucked up, my dear
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to fear
Que será, será
What will be, will be
When I grew up and fell in love
I asked my sweetheart, what lies ahead
Will we have rainbows
Day after day
Here's what my sweetheart said
I'm for Trump, my dear
What will always be, will be
The future is great again
Que será, será
What will be, will be
Now I have children of my…

I heard this song sung by Arlo Guthrie on the Boston Common,
decades ago,
when Pete Seeger still had a voice to sing with,
and the two of them did this open-air concert together.

The chorus is the same;
but Guthrie sang a different conclusion
to the third and final verse:

"... Jimmy was a hero, felt it in his bones/
Said in the words of John Paul Jones:

Annegi, welcome! Stay around, get your membership card and let's hear what you are interested in, apart from water rabbits!
Joe, what you posted are the complete lyrics according to 'Politics' - one of my all-time favourite albums. The only item on it I don't like is the above song ...

Thank you all very much. I told by brother(who had asked me for the words) that I knew people who would be sure to know. As I am in Scotland I wasn't sure about the time differences but obviously this is a 24 hour service! Thanks again Anne

This is from Tom Paxton's Live For the Record album (1996). At the time, Paxton was doing a medley of his topical songs, the ones that don't last long. I don't know if this is the complete song, or if Paxton abbreviated it for the medley.

(Tom Paxton)

President Carter got into his boat
Wasn't in a hurry, wanted to float;
Think about the country, think about sin,
Along came a rabbit and he tried to climb in.
And what did Jimmy say?

I don't want a bunny wunny in my wittle wow boat,
In my wittle wow boat in the pond.
For the bunny might be cwazy and he'd bite me in the thwoat,
In my wittle wow boat in the pond.

Look at him swimming! Look at him fly!
Ears laid back and a gleam in his eye!
Hissing through his front teeth, swimming like a seal,
If you were President, how would you feel?
You'd prob'ly say:

President Carter saved the day,
Splashed with his paddle, rabbit swam away.
Jimmy was a hero; we were proud of him,
Ever since Jimmy, picking have been slim,
And I can hear him say:

It was about Carter actually, an incident where he was fishing from a boat when a rabbit was seen swimming towards him. The secret service guys thought it may be a remote controlled bomb or a Russian agent or something, leapt in after him and wrestled him to the bank, just in case. The rest of the chorus goes 'for the bunny might be cwazy and he'll gwab me by da fwoat, in my wittle wow boat on the pond.' I've got the rest at home and if there's no other response I'll post it tonight. Cheers!

I heard Tom Paxton sing a song - I think about Nixon. The chorus went something like 'I don't want a bunny wunny in my little row boat, in my little row boat in the pond' Can anyone help with the words? Thanks
