Artist: Frank Zappa

Title: Agency man

-------------------------

(Were The Mothers of Invention Ahead of their time? at least in the case

of AGENCY MAN (written in 1967), about Ronald Reagan running for

president. (Since Bill Casey was Reagan campaign manager, and later

became head of the CIA, the idea of a political sales pitch emanating from

an agency man takes on a whole new dimension).

Sell us a president, agency man

Smiling Big Brother stern father perhaps

Sell us a president, agency man

(A gay?) smiling up we know never craps

Let's try California,

Pay us first before we do it

We get a smilin nazi

March him right on through

Wham a baby

Kiss a baby

Ladies in for tea

And here's a bunch of speeches

Well toss 'em in for free

Sell us a president, agency man

Smiling Big Brother stern father perhaps

Sell us a president, agency man

(A gay?) smiling up we know never craps

We'll sell him in the movies

On the tube throughout the year

We'll sell him by the bucket

To the Okies drinking beer

We'll teach him how to walk and talk

We'll putty up his chin

We'll print his picture everywhere

Of course the shmuck will win

From the heart of Death Valley

To the ruling of our land

A simple trick you simple pig

It's just the way we planned
