Hello, Dalai... Well, HELLO, Dalai!

Original post made by Douglas Kendall, Downtown, on Oct 9, 2009

To welcome the Dalai Lama to Congress this week, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi asked BONO to sing an opening for the Congressional session:

Here’s how it went..

[ Sung to the tune of “HELLO, DOLLY!” by famous jazz trumpeter Louis ‘Satchmo’ Armstrong, may he blow in peace. ]

“Hello, Dalai! Well, hello, Dalai!
I’d be so nice to get Tibet from the Viet Kong (supporters!)
You’re looking swell, Dalai! Orange is svelte, Dalai!
You’re just glowin’ -- Pelosi’s crowin’ -- yer portfolio is gettin’ strong!

I think Congress you’re swayin’... and to Pelosi you’re playin’
that tired old song about embracing Zen..
So... take the rap, China... give him his pet yak back, China
Dalai, you’ll get Tibet someday!
Dalai, you’ll get it back someday!
Dalai, you never had the BEATLES fooooooled !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
