Song for a Saturday: I’m Against It

H/t Steve Bissette for putting this in my head today.

“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!
(He’s opposed to it)
(In fact, he says he’s opposed to it!)…”

[“WHATEVER IT IS, I’M AGAINST IT” from HORSE FEATHERS (1932), lyrics and music by Harry Ruby & Bert Kalmar]
