about

Dick Tuck famously lost the 1966 senate race (came in 3rd), and said "The People have spoken. The Bastards!"

lyrics

Democrat pixie of the ‘64 race
Melodramatic mixing up, but fell into place
It might be different
If we counted the dead
I might be pissed off, or I might be off base

Conventional wisdom had me losing to George
I might not represent you, but I won’t be ignored
I’ll send up Millhouse
And watch him react
I’m a dirty trickster, but at least you’re not bored

I never wanted to be malicious
I only wanted to keep the spotlight on

It’s true, I don’t play to lose
And if I still do
I’m incredibly shrewd
At playing a ruse
They get who they’ve chosen
And by the same token
The bastards have spoken

(as a) Republican strategist with sardonic wit
(I) had a supplicants candor but a devilish twist
It was all too easy
To trick Tricky Dick
Delightfully fitting, to see him have a fit

Fool Hearted Donald was the replacement he found
He took what I started and ran it into the ground
I was cringing
And you were unhinging
When you opened up the gate and inevitably drowned

Careening ‘round the corner of influence
I merely tickled the crowds conclusions

It’s true, I don’t play to lose
And if I still do
I’m incredibly shrewd
At playing a ruse
They get who they’ve chosen
And by the same token
The bastards have spoken

It’s true, I don’t play to lose
And if I still do
I’m incredibly shrewd
At playing a ruse
They get who they’ve chosen
And by the same token
The bastards have spoken
