Left a good broad by the river,
Traveled back into town just to get some rest!
Waited for 10 hours,
Went back to the river,
But I couldn't get her out of that mess!
Poor Mary Jo Kopechne,
Dead Mary Jo Kopechne,
Rollin'... rollin'... rollin' down the window!
If you're gonna run for office,
And you know that it's an election year.
Don't go in the river,
'Specially by way of bridges,
It could put an end to your political career!
- -- Poor Mary Jo, to the tune of "Proud Mary"
