"Alexander In Charge" as written by and Robert Kleiner Kevin Charles Gibson....
There was an average Monday
There was a movie star
There was a man with a gun
There was a getaway car
There was a moment's confusion
Then all hell broke loose
There was immediate action
There was nothing left to do

This wasn't up to me but the damage is already done
Let me introduce myself you're in the presence of your brand new number one
Responsibility, you know the boots I fill are large
One thing I'm sure of here is that Alexander is in charge

There were a million questions
There was a helping hand
Opportunity
And a chain of command
And now the chain has been broken
By the chosen few
And when you're all in line
I did what I had to do

This wasn't up to me but the damage is already done
Let me introduce myself you're in the presence of your brand new number one
Responsibility, you know the boots I fill are large
One thing I'm sure of here is that Alexander is in charge

I'm fifth in line
I'm only three away from right
And I think I've proven myself
Cause this is war
Someone must win the fight
So quick to judge on a minor oversight

Fate has a funny way of knowing what you bring
One shot one chance is yours for changing everything
It all seems so perfect now it all seems like you're impressed
And given half the chance yuou know it works out for the best

This wasn't up to me but the damage is already done
Let me introduce myself you're in the presence of your brand new number one
Responsibility, you know the boots I fill are large
One thing I'm sure of here is that Alexander is in charge

    General CommentI'm surprised no one has filled in the meaning to the one easy to interpret Tub Ring song. This song is about Alexander Haig, Reagan Secretary of State. After the assassination attempt on the former US president in 1981, Haig said "I'm in charge" to the reporters, as if asserting control over the office. However, that is not the way our political system works. Unless the President, VP, Speaker of the house, and President Pro tempore were all out of commission, the Secretary of State would have no chance of taking office. Plus, the constitution doesn't mention the SoS position, since it was created by a presidential decree, so it is likely that if all of the above had become injured or died, he would have STILL been wrong.
