“The Night They Dragged Old Herman Down” (Song Parody)

Herman Cain is my name, and I rode on the Pizza Train
I found fortune and fame hawking mushroom, and sausage, and plain
In the winter of ’95 I was winning — I was fresh and alive
Went back east to work for a spell
It was a time I don’t remember all that well

The night they dragged old Herman down
Well, he just kept drinkin’
The night they dragged old Herman down
Well, he just quit thinkin’
He went, “Na, na, na, na, na, na — na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na”

I’m just a poor boy from Tennessee, but one day God said to me
“Herman, quick come see — I’ll show you your true destiny”
I think I ought to be President, but those women never gave their consent
Now there’s only one thing to do
Blame the Left — and be Romney’s Number Two

The night they dragged old Herman down
Well, he just kept drinkin’
The night they dragged old Herman down
Well, he just quit thinkin’
He went, “Na, na, na, na, na, na — na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na”

  1. The opening line of this song has been playing in my head for weeks, although it’s Joan Baez rather than Johnny Cash. Thanks for the rest of the lyrics!
