You ever see a painting by John Trumbull?
Founding fathers in a line, looking all humble
Patiently waiting to sign a declaration, to start a nation
No sign of disagreement, not one grumble
The reality is messier and richer, kids
The reality is not a pretty picture, kids
Every cabinet meeting is a full on rumble
What you 'bout to see is no John Trumbull
Ladies and gentlemen, you coulda been anywhere in the world tonight
But you're here with us in New York City
Are you ready for a cabinet meeting?
Gentlemen, Vice President John Adams sends his regards
He won't be joining us
He had to be home in Massachusetts for family reasons
Tell him to stay home!
He can do the same amount from there!
All right, all right, settle down
