David Alan Grier’s Monologue

…..David Alan Grier

David Alan Grier: Thanks a lot! [ chuckles ] You know, it is so great to be back here, hosting “Saturday Night Live”. now, as you know, Monday is President Clinton’s inauguration.

Random Audience Member Reaction: Uh-huh.

Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah.. he’s going to serve his second term, and I’m proud to say that I voted for Clinton – uh, George Clinton, because I thought we needed some P-Funk in da White House! Anyway, a lot of celebrities have been invited to participate. In fact, I wrote a song for the occasion. So, since I have a live audience right here, I thought tonight would be a perfect time for me to sing the song I’m hoping to do at the Inaugural.

[ music pots up ]

David Alan Grier: Alright, now let’s slow it down. Mr. President. Ahhhhh, yeahhhh! You know, tonight is all about Y-O-U. So, sit back and put down that Arch Deluxe that you’re chewing too fast. That’s right.

Tonight, make your home state of Arkansas real proud. Arkansas! Home of that banjo player from “Deliverance”. You know, the big-headed boy – he scares me!

But, you, my man, you inspire me, Mr. President. The way you grab an issue and then, real slow, switch positions over and over and over again! Man, that feels good!

And let’s not forget about the First-Lady – hey, girl! You know, you two make the perfect couple. You and Bill are the Peaches & Herb of the free world.

Now, you know, I know I’ve been talking a little bit too much. So, I guess, what I really want to say is..

[ singing ]

“Let’s get butt-naked in the White House
Ahhhhh, we’re gonna pass some legislation
and sign a new Health Care Bill.

Come on, let’s get butt-naked in the White House
Ooh, we gonna have a free party
Free party up on Capitol Hill!

Newt Gringrich, butt-naked!
The whole Congress, butt-naked!
Strom Thurmond, don’t you get naked at the free party!
Free party, up on Capitol Hill!”

Thank you so much! Now, we got a great show – Snoop Doggy Dogg is in the hizzouse! So, stick around, and we’ll be right back!
