Mamas, Don't Let Your Daughters Grow Up To Be Interns
lyrics 2001 by Dr. H. Paul Shuch
Sung to the tune of
"Mamas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys" by Ed and Patsy Bruce

Fresh out of college, her head full of knowledge, but certainly not very wise,
She went off to Washington looking for action, my daughter with stars in her eyes.
Political power's a fatal attraction, and so you must learn compromise,
But her education went public, you see, in a city where everyone lies.

CHORUS:

Mamas, don't let your daughters grow up to be interns.
The Capitol scene would make any gal blush;
Let 'em be strippers and hookers and such.
Mamas, don't let your daughters grow up to be interns.
In Washington town you know what's goin' down;
Always on someone in power.

Studied political science, and thinking of setting the whole world on fire,
She left the safe haven of Yale, and departed for where everybody's for hire.
But now she's appearing each day on Geraldo. The stories that she has to tell.
Will bring down the house, and the Senate, and maybe the President too, what the hell.

CHORUS

Now her book is a number one New York best seller. She's expert at dishing the dirt,
For she pulls no punches when telling the stories of every philandering flirt.
But you'd think that someone would finally tell her that interns who kiss and then tell
Are often indicted, and seldom acquitted, and might find their arse in a cell.

CHORUS

Return to When Life Was A Bitch
