lyrics

If you told me he was struck by lightning
Five times in one day
Or maybe hit two lotteries
Though I doubt he’d even play
Those things would be easy to believe
Next to what I can’t quite conceive
It left the country mystified
That he’d be targeted twice from the distaff side

The year Gerald Ford was shot at by two women
The year Gerald Ford was shot at by two women
He said our national nightmare was over
But his had just begun
The year Gerald Ford was shot at by two women

All alone little Squeaky Fromme
Set out to have her say
She was thinking of the redwood trees
As she drew her gun that day
She yelled, “It didn’t go off, can you believe it?”
No bullets in the chamber to achieve it
Her semiautomatic .45
Was ill-prepared as she; Ford was still alive

The year Gerald Ford was shot at by two women
The year Gerald Ford was shot at by two women
It’s a time that is best remembered
For Quaaludes and hash
The year Gerald Ford was shot at by two women

Sarah Jane was a bit insane
But she didn’t wear a sign
She was a part-time radical
And a snitch for the FBI
She used a gun that wouldn’t pass inspection
When she fired a shot in Ford’s direction
Every husband looked twice at his wife
A statistical anomaly had come to life, it had come to life!

The year Gerald Ford was shot at by two women
The year Gerald Ford was shot at by two women
Way to go, California
On such a winter’s day
The year Gerald Ford was shot at by…
Gerald Ford was shot at by…
Gerald Ford was shot at…by two women
