The Corrupt Bargain Lyrics


by Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson Cast. From Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson.


KATE: (spoken)

And now, an explanation of the Corrupt Bargain, which took place in the back halls of Washington while no one was watching.

KATE, NADIA, and EMILY: (sung)

Do, do, do, do, do.
Do, do, do, do, do.
Do, do, do, do, do, do do.

John Calhoun says,

CALHOUN:

We need to find a scheme to keep the power in the hands of the chosen few.

KATE, NADIA, and EMILY:

John Quincy Adams says,

QUINCY ADAMS:

If my dad was president, I should get to be president too.

KATE, NADIA, and EMILY:

Henry Clay says,

CLAY:

Iíll make you president if you make me Secretary of State.

KATE, NADIA, and EMILY:

Alexis de Tocqueville says something in French that none of us can translate.
Wooh!

Do, do, do, do.
Do, do, do, do.
Do, do, do, do.

Do, do, do, do.
Do, do, do, do.
Do, do, do, do.

All you educated people, you can talk of liberty.
But do you really want the American people running their own country?
Ooh!

KATE, NADIA, and EMILY:

Do, do, do, do.
Do, do, do.
Do, do, do.
Do, do, do.
Do, do, do.
Do, do, do,

John Quincy Adams says,

QUINCY ADAMS:

If we steal the election, then Jackson will surely cave.

KATE, NADIA, and EMILY:

John Calhoun says,

CALHOUN:

You can be president if you donít try to take away my slaves.

KATE, NADIA, and EMILY:

Henry Clay says,

CLAY:

Youíll get Missouri Ďcause I know how to play real politick.

KATE, NADIA, and EMILY:

James Madison said something prescient about this but he was kind of a dick.
Letís dance!

KATE, NADIA, EMILY, CALHOUN, QUINCY ADAMS, and CLAY:

Do, do, do, do.
Do, do, do, do.
Do, do, do, do.

Do, do, do, do.
Do, do, do, do.
Do, do, do, do.

KATE, NADIA, and EMILY:

You can compromise all you want, theyíre still drunk and smell like pee.
Do you really want America run by a man from Tennessee?

John Quincy Adams,

QUINCY ADAMS:

The people are stupid!

KATE, NADIA, and EMILY:

Henry Clay,

HENRY CLAY:

They can all go rot!

KATE, NADIA, and EMILY:

John Calhoun,

CALHOUN:

Theyíre lame!

KATE, NADIA, and EMILY:

Quincy Adams,

QUINCY ADAMS:

They suck!

KATE, NADIA, and EMILY:

Henry Clay,

CLAY:

Jacksonís a total twat!

KATE, NADIA, and EMILY:

John Calhoun,

CALHOUN:

These guys are idiots but itís Jackson whoís a real threat.

KATE, NADIA, and EMILY:

Iím sure Michel Foucault would have an opinion but he hasnít been born yet.

Jackson is a loser.
Jackson is a loser.
(Evil laughter starts from CALHOUN, QUINCY ADAMS, and CLAY)
Jackson is a loser.
Jackson is a loser.

QUINCY ADAMS:

Iím the president!

CALHOUN, QUINCY ADAMS, and CLAY:

(Sigh)
