I DO NOT CHOOSE TO RUNby Kenny & Dennis
as performed by Tom Stacks and the members of Harry Reser's Six Jumping Jacks
Billy bought a dollar watch He thought he'd have some time. But the thing was non-complete It wasn't worth a dime. Billy listened for a tick, And almost passed away He put the watch up to his ear And heard it softly say: I do not choose to run. I do not choose to run. Try and shake me You can't make me My spring days are done. Wind me up once more Then drop me on the floor. I don't care I just declare I do not choose to run. Billy had a jazzy band, They loved their music so. Every where that Willie went The band was sure to go. When they heard this little song Now, things have changed about When Billy whispers, "Let's go boys", The band begins to shout: We do not choose to play. We do not choose to play. Break our fiddles in their middles Throw our sax away Leave a little (whistle) Yell hip hip horray Any thing We'll even sing We do not choose to play.
Note: "I do not choose to run" were perhaps the most famous of the sparse number of words uttered by President Calvin Coolidge. They announced his refusal to stand for re-election in 1928.
