"The Return Of Sathington Willoughby" as written by and Leslie E Claypool Bryan Kei Mantia....
Fellow colleges, distinguished members of the press, ladies
And gentlemen:

I would like to take this opportunity to personally and humbly thank
Each and every one of you for joining us at this particular event.

It is my hope that we can utilize this meeting of the minds to
Successfully convey the essence of our platform to you, a grand and
Noble audience.

As I look out among the faces, I reflect, taking console in the words
Of Franklin Delano Roosevelt who said, we have nothing to fear but
Fear itself.

Paranoia is a disease unto itself, and may I add, the person standing
Next to you, may not be who they appear to be, so take precaution.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste, this is true any a young person
Has fallen prey, to the substances that alter the perspective of any
Right thinking individual.

The problem with the youth today is, because of their inexperience
With the world, they cannot attempt to grasp the ideals, set forth by
Myself and those who preceded me.

But, as history has shown, they will come around, and embrace our
Philosophies and become model citizens in their own right, God bless
This great nation.

    General CommentLes The pause he takes while saying the last two sets of lines is very funny, very sarcastic.

    General CommentPart 2 of a brief skit from a previous CD. Just a song about a fictional politician. Someone of power though, who has influence, not like a governor or mayor or senator. I higher member of government who has influence over the union.

    General CommentThis is kind of a mix of a bunch of very generic things said in speeches combined into one to show how ridiculous politicians really are.

    General CommentFrom the last few lines and the Hallucin-Genetic versions of the original 'Sathington Willoby' I'd say it's specifically about a crap president, and how most are in a way in how they make vague speeches and rarely truly address any underlying problem directly, hinted-at/promised or not.

    General CommentWhat are the last lines?
    Oh, and Heckler, I would say your name is very appropriate. There is NO fucking reason WHATSOEVER to deliberately open a song link just to post "I HATE THIS SONG!!!! EVERYONE THAT LIKES IT SUCKS!!!!!" and stupid shit like that.
    But I also say that it's stupid when people say "You're a stupid fag if you don't like this, bitch!" and other, equally stupid shit.
    But please, for the sake of this site, do not spam up songs like that.
    That's all.

    General CommentI'm with Kiwiman, that's the best part of the song. I always laugh out loud as soon as Les says "So take precautions!"

    General CommentThis song def shows how easily a politicain can rally up a crowd with a very vague speech.
    They made a good choice by putting a crowd chanting "Zeig Heil" at the end just before it cuts off.
