Bob Rivers – I Shot The White House lyrics

I Shot The White House
(I Shot The Sherrif - Eric Clapton)

I shot the White House
But I did not hit the President
I shot the White House
But I did not hit the President

Firing rounds at the compound
'til a tourist dragged me down
Bill Clinton was a-watching his tv
When I strolled right past security
So I shot, I shot his house
I swear

I shot the White House
But I never got inside the fence, oh no no
I shot the White House
Guess I must have been a little tense

(Attention! You, with the automatic weapon...
Uhh... I'm not sure but I don't think you're
Supposed to have that.)
(Will agent Moe and agent Larry please proceed
Immediately to the emergency area)
(Soi-tainly.)(Ehhh... Grab that gun, numbskull)

    Bob Rivers is the first true internet star. Bob is a radio announcer and producer. None of his material was ever intended to be released, but fans recorded the troupe's songs and traded them on the net, creating a star in a market that never existed.
    Eventually, the production crew released a cd of Twisted Christmas songs, and More Twisted Christmas songs. Those were the two produced for sale.
    All others are bootleg copies of a very funny and talented production crew.
    When a nut-case opened fire at the White House during the Clinton presidency, Eric Clapton's version of "I Shot The Sherrif" was too easy a match to pass up.
