Bad, Bad Dorothy Brown

Well in downtown old Chicago
in the saddest part of town
if you go down there, you better just be aware
of a clerk named Dorothy Brown

She got an antiquated courthouse
she got a crooked husband too
she got a patronage army and she acts real smarmy
got a razor in her 'do

And she's bad, bad Dorothy Brown
worst damn clerk in the whole damn town
badder than Moseley-Braun*
pretty soon she'll be gone

She lost her party's endorsement
even though she gave 25 large
she's headed toward indictment and that's real excitin'
in prison they'll call her Marge

And she's bad, bad Dorothy Brown
worst damn clerk in the whole damn town
better stay off her lawn
pretty soon she'll be gone

* We know Moseley-Braun was the Cook County Recorder of Deeds, not the clerk; we just needed a rhyme and that's not the point of the line anyway.
