‘The Mooch’ — Lyrics To 50s Pop-Rock Song

For some time, I’ve struggled in my mind to understand what The Mooch’s name reminded me of, and today I realize it was Mack The Knife, especially with him saying he’s a “front stabber” not a “back stabber.” So, with that in mind, this is a homage to Mack The Knife in my doggerel style.

The Mooch

The Mooch tells you what he thinks
never mind that this fish stinks
he’s the guy who’ll tell you the truth
won’t stab you in back, that’s a fact

he’s a front stabber
keeps his blade sharp
to defend his boss
no leakers will survive on The Mooch’s watch
he’ll rough’em up
just for kicks

this show is never jumping the shark
he’s got to communicate that to the masses
the fake news just better shut up
’cause once he’s done with’em
they won’t know what hit’em
it’s The Mooch — POW

but just you wait and see, dee’re
The Mooch is on the scene now
the drama of the past
is just prelude
now we’re going to see something new
The Mooch is for you

we’re taking it to the next level
bring your pop corn folks
The Mooch is here
doing all the front stabbing
he’ll tell you what he thinks

Kellyanne Conway, Stevie Bannon & Jared
you ain’t seen nothing yet
I got you covered
the boss will be singing The Mooch’s praises
everyone in this nation will know the name
of The Mooch
of The Mooch
of The Mooch
