I'm Monica Lewinsky (Duncan McNab) I'm Monica Lewinsky I'm sure you've heard my name It's going to bring me fortune It's already brought me fame They're reading all about me In countries near and far 'Cause they want to know what the President did With the end of his old cigar. cho: With the end of his old cigar Ta-ra-ra-ra-ra-ra! They want to know what the President did With the end of his old cigar I was working in the White House It really was rather fun One night the President asked me If I would like to come Into his Oval Office And have a drink at the bar Where he asked me if I'd like to light The end of his old cigar. I went around one evening To see what he was at He was busy on the telephone To Yasser Arafat. I sneaked up close beside him But then things went too far 'Cause he made a mess when he smudged my dress With the end of his old cigar. Well, I'm no longer welcome In the corridors of power. My relationship with William It has turned rather sour, So I went before a jury And a man called Kenneth Starr And I told him what the President did With the end of his old cigar. So come all you politicians Take heed to what I say The smell of stale cigar smoke Will never go away. It clings to everything you've got And it may sound quite bizarre If you want to smell of roses Stub out your old cigar.
