Da Do Run Ron - 1984

(Ronald Reagan) 
My fellow Americans, people of the world, I give you… Nancy!

(Nancy Reagan and Chorus) 
His name is Ronald Reagan and he’s quite a guy! 
[Da do run run Ron, da do run Ron!]  
You gotta re-elect him and we’ll tell ya why!  
[Da do run run Ron, da do run Ron!]

[Yeah!] 
He can really act! 
[Yeah!] 
He’s lowered Income Tax! 
[Yeah!] 
He hates the Warsaw Pact! 
[Da do run run Ron, da do run Ron!]

No one can accuse him of being over the hill! 
[Da do run run Ron, da do run Ron!] 
But when he went out jogging his heart stood still! 
[Da don’t run run Ron, da don’t run Ron!]

[Yeah!] 
He’s wild and free! 
[Yeah!] 
He’s seventy-three! 
[Yeah!] 
He’s just run into a tree! 
[Da do run run Ron, da do run Ron!]

[Oooooh! Da do run run Ron, da do run Ron!]

He went into Grenada with his head held high! 
[Da do run run Ron, da do run Ron!] 
The only trouble is he can’t remember why! 
[Da do run run Ron, da do run Ron!]

(Gary Hart and Chorus) 
[Yeah!] He ought-a stay in bed! [Yeah!]  
He’s so nearly dead!  
[Yeah!]

(Ronald Reagan and Soviet Chorus) 
Yeah, but better dead than Red!  
[Da da run run Ron, da da run Ron!]  
[Da da run run Ron, da da run Ron!] 

[Da da!]
