Anne Romney: "I Won't Talk, Don't Ask Me"

I couldn't resist messing with this old Fred and Ginger chestnut after reading this bit of news.
"Here in Iowa, as you know, same-sex marriage is legal. Do you believe a lesbian mother should be allowed to marry her partner?" David Nelson, a KWQC anchor asked.

"You know, I'm not going to talk about the specific issues," Romney responded, adding that "hot-button issues" distract from the economy.
Here's my take on it:

DAVID NELSON:

Think of what you're losing 

By constantly refusing

To talk to me.

You'd be the idol of the airwaves with me.

And yet you stand there and shake your foolish head rheumatically

While I wait here so ecstatically.

You just look and say emphatically:

ANNE ROMNEY:

Not this season.
There's a reason.

I won't talk. Don't ask me.

I won't talk. Don't ask me.


I won't talk, about these issues with you.

My Mitt won't let my mouth do things it should do.

My apologies to Dorothy Fields, Oscar Hammerstein II, Otto Harbach and Jimmy McHugh, who wrote the original (and immortal) lyric, and to Jerome Kern, who wrote the music that is now in your head.

Feel free to add to this little bit of madness. Who can resist?
