Why are you stayin' in here in this shadow?
Come over by the fire
I'll have a drink with you
This is our house now
So let's act like we belong here
Considering some of those who've lived here
What'll we do?
I got some Michter's Irish whiskey
From Mr. George Preston Marshall
The man who honor rescued
Since the day he was born
And it runs him like a plantation
Like a plantation Jack?
Like a plantation Bob
For never has a black man worn the burgundy and gold
Does he know it's the capital of the country Jack?
Does he know that it's 1961
Does he know that the Redskins need a half-back Bobby boy
Who can run?
There's a man to see you in the office Jack
Bob, I'm going home I've had a rotten day (you are home, Jack) (oh)
Well I still don't want to see him, I think you should see him anyway
It's about Cuba, Jack, the Russians are pouring in and it's ninety miles away
This man has a plan to overthrow the government there
The very small expeditionary force
They'll land on the beaches in the dead of night
So no one will be at the beach, right Bob? That's right Jack
The people who will join them, they'll march all around him
And our planes will fly support
Ah but they won't Bob
We'll have nothing to do with this
But wait, wait a minute Bobby boy
There's a woman there in Cuba whom I love
Oh no Jack
Not in a bad way, but a good way
Do you know any Cuban music Bob?
Does "I love Lucy" count?
Of course it does
But the one whom I love is Celia Cruz
Celia Cruz, Celia Cruz
The greatest singer in the world today
If she's there and wants to get away
Then bring her here to the U.S.A.
I see the man with the plane
I'd be the first to shake him by the hand
I'll be the first to give him the news
We're going to save Celia Cruz
Celia Cruz, Celia Cruz
Celia Cruz, Celia Cruz, come on, Bobby
Celia Cruz, Celia Cruz (sing along with me Bob)
I always sing along with you Jack (I know you do)
Celia Cruz, Celia Cruz (I'm excited Bob, just like the Rough Riders)
Celia Cruz, Celia Cruz (you excited?)
Jack was right about you, Bob
Celia Cruz, Celia Cruz (big office, isn't it Bob? Long hallway)
