Ya' Got Trouble

I'm bringing an old favorite to the top. It looks like it's a good weekend for a little van Hollen bothering.

Harold Hill:
Well, either you're closing your eyes
To a situation you do now wish to acknowledge
Or you are not aware of the caliber of disaster indicated

JB van Hollen via Fraley:
Former United States Attorney JB Van Hollen says that
State Attorneys General can and must play a
fundamental role in the war on terrorism.

Hill:
But just as I say,
It takes judgement, brains, and maturity to score
In a balkline game,
I say that any boob kin take
And shove a ball in a pocket.

JB:
“I am shocked, quite frankly, that
Paul Bucher really doesn’t know that
President Bush has entrusted the
state attorneys general with a significant role in
fighting terrorism here at home,”

Hill:
The first big step on the road
To the depths of deg-ra-Day--
I say, first, medicinal wine from a teaspoon,
Then beer from a bottle.
An' the next thing ya know,
Your son is playin' for money
In a pinch-back suit.

JB:
“The Attorney General must,
like all law enforcement, remain vigilant regarding
all possible threats to public safety.”

Hill:
Now, I know all you folks are the right kinda parents.
I'm gonna be perfectly frank.
Would ya like to know what kinda conversation goes
On while they're loafin' around that Hall?
They're tryin' out Bevo, tryin' out cubebs,
Tryin' out Tailor Mades like Cigarette Feends!
And braggin' all about
How they're gonna cover up a tell-tale breath with Sen-Sen.

JB:
"Twenty eight county district attorneys,
20 county sheriffs and 36 prominent elected
Republican legislators are backing my campaign
because they know I have the experience and integrity
to fight crime as Attorney General,”

Towns People:
Trouble, oh we got trouble,
Right here in River City!
With a capital "T"
...We've surely got trouble!
Right here in River City,
Right here!Gotta figger out a way
To keep the young ones moral after school!
Trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble...

JB:
“Terrorism is a threat in Wisconsin.
It would be na├»ve and irresponsible to assume otherwise,”

Hill:
We've surely got trouble!
Right here in River City!
Remember the Maine,
Plymouth Rock and the Golden Rule!
Oh, we've got trouble.
We're in terrible, terrible trouble.
That game with the fifteen numbered balls is a devil's tool!
Oh yes we got trouble, trouble, trouble!

JB:
Twenty eight county district attorneys,
20 county sheriffs and 36 prominent elected
Republican legislators are backing my campaign
because they know I have the experience
and integrity to fight crime as Attorney General,
This includes fighting cyber-crime,
the scourge of methamphetamine, and the
threat posed by potential terrorists here.”

Hill:
One fine night, they leave the pool hall,
Headin' for the dance at the Arm'ry!
Libertine men and Scarlet women!
And Rag-time, shameless music
That'll grab your son and your daughter
With the arms of a jungle animal instink!
Mass-staria!
Friends, the idle brain is the devil's playground!

Towns People:
We've surely got trouble!
Right here in River City,
Right here!
Gotta figger out a way
To keep the young ones moral after school!
Trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble...
