I think it’s time that Memphians admitted
That Willie Herenton should be committed.
He has become a joke,a pain in the neck
Like a runaway train en route to a wreck.
I saw him on Channel 5 and come what may
He made a fool of hisself, as Coach Murphy would say.
I never voted for the guy,I once saw red
And I swear I voted for Prince Mongo instead.
He resigned as mayor and he’s now talkin’ smack
And the goof ball now wants his old job back.
So the trick is this and it’s very clear
If we don’t vote for him he will disappear.
But failing that he will do no further harm
If we can just get him to the Funny Farm..
