Whatever It Is

Just because I was thinking about this song in reference to how I feel about our Austrian governor. More on that crucial topic … later.

Whatever It Is, I’m Against It

By Harry Ruby (music) and Bert Kalmar (lyrics)

Performed by Groucho Marx in “Horse Feathers” (1932)

(Sound file here.)

I don’t know what they have to say,

It makes no difference anyway —

Whatever it is, I’m against it!

No matter what it is or who commenced it,

I’m against it.

Your proposition may be good

But let’s have one thing understood —

Whatever it is, I’m against it!

And even when you’ve changed it or condensed it,

I’m against it.

I’m opposed to it —

On general principles I’m opposed to it!

Chorus: He’s opposed to it!

In fact, in word, in deed,

He’s opposed to it!

For months before my son was born,

I used to yell from night till morn,

Whatever it is, I’m against it!

And I’ve kept yelling since I commenced it,

I’m against it!
