“Politics,” written by Robert Emmett Dolan, with lyrics by Johnny Mercer, from the 1949 play “Texas, Li’l Darlin.’” This version is by Bob Crosby and the Bobcats.

“If you can raise the flag and wave her, never grant a favor,
Smile and tell them maybe, always kiss the baby,
Give the kid a locket out of daddy’s pocket,
Have him thank you for the crime,
My friends the practice you’re indulging in is politics,
Yes, it’s politics, simply politics.
You pay a fella seven dollars and he kicks back six,
You’re in politics every time.”
