GET ME ROGER STONE - the song

(to the tune of "Heart of Gold"  by Neil Young) 


A foppish slickster,  a dirty trickster,
He’s worked with Manafort and ‘Tricky Dick’,
Deceptive tactics he knows to pick, sir
That keeps me seekin’ help from Roger Stone --
Get him on the phone.

That keeps me seekin’ help from Roger Stone,
Get him on the phone!

He is a slick son-xxx, let’s get him quick son,
He’s out-maneuvered jerks at Wiki Leaks.      
A touch of Lucifer, he speaks with Guccifer*.
We’ll trash the Clintons using Roger Stone --
Get him on the phone.

I like to seek advice from Roger Stone,
Get him on the phone!

I need to seek advice from Roger Stone.
A dirty trickster with a heart of stone.
Keep Special Counsel far from Roger Stone.
I’m in deep doodoo, get me Roger Stone.

*  Guccifer 2.0 is an online persona, that, according to U.S. documents of indictment, is operated by Russian millitary intelligence. In July 2016, 'Guccifer' claimed responsibility for hacking into emails of the U.S. Democratic National Committee, and releasing them to the media and to the website 'WikiLeaks'. 
Lucifer, Latin name for the morning star Venus, is treated in early Christian terminology as a synonym for Satan.  

SEQUEL:

His prospects sagged, judge has him gagged,
That gassy windbag, now he's on his own.
I barely knew him, best to eschew him.
Perhaps I'll later pardon Roger Stone--
Now, he's on his own.

|The Mueller Probe indicted Roger Stone.

I'll pardon later, but for now, disown.|   repeat and fade.
