Bert Kalmar & Harry Ruby: These Are the Laws Of My Administration

If you haven’t yet seen the Marx Brothers film Duck Soup, do yourself a favor and watch it—it’s irreverent, hysterical and (these days) educational.  The lyrics pack a particular punch right now: “If you think this country’s bad off now, just wait ’til I get through with it”… Ouch. Take a listen.

Performed by Groucho Marx and Margaret Dumont

Can’t get enough of Groucho?  Check out this other, equally brilliant, song from Duck Soup: ‘This Country’s Going to War’:
