Uke-Song: "The BALLAD of RUDY GIULIANI, part #2" (the disappointment of Max Boot)

SONG with UKULELE-Chords


ORIGINAL SONG: The Ballad of Davy Crockett , by Bruns and Blackburn, Walt Disney Studios 1954, anthem of the "Crockett craze". Several versions of the song were prominent on the Top Ten in 1955.

SATIRE COMPOSED: Dr. G.H. and Giorgio Coniglio, June 2018.

BACKGROUND INFO: Max Boot's opinion-editorial appeared in our local newspaper on May 8, 2018, under the heading "The long, disappointing fall of Rudy Giuliani". Here are the links to the particular newspaper column, and to the parody lyrics.
Other takes on Giuliani's statements about the Presidents' legal and personal imbroglios are given by Jennifer Rubin here, and Amy Sorkin here.
