The Fitzgerald spawn came from up north of Oak Lawn
Near the town that they call "Windy City."
The lake wind, it's said, as it whipped past their heads
Made their view of humanity shitty.
'Twas nineteen sixty six and on through seventy four
Daddy Steve was a public employee.
Chicago cop blue -- did he pay union dues?
Did he meet the retirement annuity?
Now when Steve would ride wife and two sons by his side
Vacationing up north in Wisconsin
He's look all around for a quiet small town
In need of a police chief well seasoned.
At a bait shop he learned, while he was buying some worms
That the Hustisford Chief was a leavin'.
By seventy five when the New Year bells rang
Hustisford's man in charge was now Stephen.
A warm welcome from his part time police force
and soon the bad guys they were jailin'.
Soon son Scott knew, and son Jeff did too
Supervisin's easier than stealin'.
High school graduate, then college in state
Jeff played basketball up in Green Bay
Ten career points during twelve games -- no starts
'Twas the worst Phoenix team that ever played.
When junior year came, Jeff called up brother Scott, sayin'
"On my free ride they put the kibosh."
Was Scott's college free? He was ROTC. He said
"Party with me here in Oshkosh."
Post-college they both tried the newspaper game
Brother Scott bought a Dodge County shopper.
Then Jeff went on down to trade stocks in Chi Town
Daddy Steve kept on being a copper.
Does anyone know where the honesty goes
When campaign cash lubricates slick talkers?
In the suburbs they say, southwest of Whitefish Bay
Lived a Colorado-born dude named Walker.
Like the Fitzgerald boys who hailed from Illinois
He posed as a native-born cheesehead.
Did they know rhubarb pie and Friday fish frys?
Did they grow up with euchre and sheepshead?
In a proud marbled hall in Madison they say,
Peoples' House and a Workers' Cathedral.
Petitions got signed, there were six different lines
one for each minion of Scott Fitzgerald.
The recall goes on 'til those senators go down.
Kloppenburg sure made Dave Prosser surly.
"It's the workers," who said, "never give up for dead
when the votes of November come early!"
