    And you could have it all
    My empire of dirt
    I will let you down
    I will make you hurt

    Although unknown to Illinois’ governor, Pat Quinn received an anti-pandering drug last week that, when given, makes the patient cluck like a chicken when the need to pander arises.

    This should make sense to everyone as to why Governor Quinn’s new nickname is “Gov. Cluck”.

    There’s a case I’d like to tell you about, heard in my home town
    My AV the case is called and it’ll take us up or down
    From no pay to cut paychecks the judge ruled on the case
    My purple tie had to just wait, the ruling in my face
    And the court ruled shining with a heavenly grace, help them with the case
    And there ain’t no case just like it
    Anywhere I found
    Running north with My AV heading into court
    Just gimme a shot of that LSD,
    Friday afternoon ruling
    And it starts up with the judge ruling, the first count on my side
    Concrete verbage rearing up, throwing the others out of sight
    Sometimes you can smell the lean, if your mind is feeling fine
    There ain’t no finer place to be, than running the appeal
    And there’s no peace of mind, or place you see, than riding on the appeal
    And there ain’t no case just like it
    Anywhere I found
    Running north on the AV heading into court
    Just gimme a shot of LSD,
    Friday afternoon ruling
    And it’s late Friday and it’s looking clean
    To early to start appeals
    A ten minute ride from the court house back make sure you’re case has seals
    And it’s four o’clock on a Friday and all of the people have gone away
    Just you and your mind and the AV, tomorrow is another day
    And the sunshine’s fine in the morning time, tomorrow is another day
    And there ain’t no case just like it
    Anywhere I found
    Running north with my AV heading into court
    Just gimme some of that LSD,
    Friday appeal never found
