Pennsylvania Avenue Story



The best nominee in all the land:
Sonia, Sonia, Sonia, Sonia…
Of all the many judges, the gavel looks best in her hand,
Sonia, Sonia, Sonia, Sonia, Sonia!

I’ve just met a judge named Sonia,
And suddenly the Supreme Court,
Will get the opposite of Bob Bork,
Thanks to me.

I’ve just nominated a judge named Sonia,
She saved baseball back when things got really bad,
And the Republicans are all hopping mad,
They know they’ve been had!


She’s Latina and appeals to all my political bases,
She’s not written many opinions on political cases.

Oh, I was always going to nominate Sonia!

She’ll be on the court until at least the twenty-thirties!
Sonia Sotomayor!
