Lyrics

Walter Mondale was the underdog, Against the Reagan juggernaut;
He fought upon the angels' side, and Reagan tranced him far and wide
So he went off to lick his wounds in the Minnesota afternoon
An elder statesman he became, exiled on the Northern Plains

Nearly twenty years flew by, and the St. Paul party chiefs did cry,
'You were always there for us before, we need you for our Senator'
In the gopher state,
two-thousand-two, once more he made the network news;
He threw his hat into the ring, and resurrected all his dreams

Hubert Humphrey in the angel band, surely smiled and raised his hand,
To steal the cold Canadian wind and bless the venture of his friend
At the whistle stops they cheered him
on, delouse to saint cloud and beyond(?)
And when the ballots all came in, they counted and he lost again

There are times when we feel
deceived, when we ask, 'Why did I believe?'
You stand amidst the damage done, before the eyes of everyone
Walter Mondale, sir, I can relate;
I've known your pain, i've shared your fate;
Our stories fit like hand and glove,
though yours was politics and mine was love
