Lyrics

"I'm not a crook", the man once said
Well let me tell you something, he lied
One day I caught something on tape
I shouldn't have done it, now I'm unloved

Here's what I wouldn't do
I'd send my tapes to Nixon
Cause he probably wouldn't listen
He'd look at all my film and say
"I'm not a crook"
I'd send my tapes to Nixon

Here's a little story that I don't really like
The president wants light, thinking it was for the better
I don't know much about it, but my parents still remember
That day on April 30th, 1973

Here's what I wouldn't do
I'd send my tapes to Nixon
Cause he probably wouldn't listen
He'd look at all my film and say
"I'm not a crook"
I'd send my tapes to Nixon

Now these days I wonder was it really that bad
"Deportation to John Lennon", he said
"A man is not finished when he is defeated", he said
It's just my opinion but I don't exactly know

Here's what I wouldn't do
I'd send my tapes to Nixon
Cause he probably wouldn't listen
He'd look at all my film and say
"I'm not a crook"
I'd send my tapes to Nixon
