To Yankee Doodle

As our year comes to an end
We say goodbye to Tony
No more emails round the clock
All of that baloney

Refrain

Man we’ve had a busy year
Don’t think I can stand it
Will we finally get a break
Oh no now her comes Janet
Membership’s an all time high
We’re signing up our neighbors
Warren met the President
Now he’s in all the papers

Refrain
