Snoopin’ Round

(To the tune of "Cathy’s Clown" by the Everly Brothers. 
Based on a story in the NY Times 10/12/07)

by Richard Tornello


Don’t want the IG snoopin’ ‘round
Write US up for what he found.
The morale is low and will decline,
Unless the boss spanks his behind.

Gotta shut him down
You can’t let him talk
When he knows all out lies
And he won’t let them pass by
Gotta shut him down

Don’t want the IG snoopin’ ‘round
Write US up for things he found.
The morale is low and will decline
Send him to a salted mine.

Gotta shut him down
And you see him take a walk
Don’t you think that we’re not sad
That he can’t say what he’s had
In our knickers, shut him down.

Don’t want The IG Snoopin’ ‘round
Write us up for for what he’s found.
The morale is low and will decline
Shuttin’ down it’s ‘bout time.
