Senator Larry Craig - Republican from Idaho

I haven't really talked about this because, whenever there is a sex scandal and it involves a Republican it always gets a good airing out in the MSM.  Many blogs are covering it and some are already demanding his resignation.  Honestly, if he broke a law he should resign.  But, right now we do not know the full story other than his George Michael bathroom escapades.  But, Ace (Jack M) has uncovered an Exclusive!  And, I must share it...I must I must!

Enjoy!

Larry Craig, Tap Three Times

You know him as a Senator from Idaho. You know him as a man who apparently cruises airport bathrooms in search of anonymous sex partners. You know him as a member of the Singing Senators.

But do you know him as a multi-platinum recording artist? You should. Because now, the truth can come out be told.

It was 1978. Disco was King. And Larry Craig was a player on the scene. Drawing inspiration from Tony Orlando and Dawn, whose song "Knock Three Times on the Ceiling if You Want Me" was a huge hit in 1971, Craig entered a Boise, Idaho recording studio and recorded his own version.

In order to preserve his political viability, and to slyly incorporate both his initials and to wink at legendary recording artist Barry Manilow, Craig recorded his cover under the name "Lola Copacabana." Craig/Copacabana truly explored the studio space, and the resulting record "Tap Three Times On the Stall Floor if You Want Me" became an instant classic.

Sadly, copies of the audio no longer exist. All that is left is a handwritten copy of the original lyrics that appear to have been hastily scribbled on Charmin tissue paper. In order to ensure that posterity never forgets Craig's contribution to the development of rock music (perhaps he's the father of the alternative music scene...who can say?) I have reproduced them for you here.

Enjoy.

Tap Three Times On the Stall Floor if you Want Me
as recorded by Lola Copacabana.

Hey guy, whatcha doin in there?
Urinating alone isn't right when I'm right alongside you
I can see you'd rather be playin
I can hear what your body is sayin
One stall away, and you don't even know me
I love you

Oh my darlin
Tap three times on the stall floor if you want me
Flush the commode, if the answer is no
Oh my sweetness (tap, tap, tap)
Means you'll meet me in the stall, yay!
Twice on the john means you ain't gonna show

If I brush your leg with my foot tonite,
or reach under the stall with with a note that's attached to my heart
Read how many times I peeped in at you
How in my silence i adored you
And only in my dreams did that stall between us come apart

Oh my darlin
Tap three times on the stall floor if you want me
Flush the commode, if the answer is no
Oh my sweetness (tap, tap, tap)
Means you'll meet me in the stall, yay!
Twice on the john means you ain't gonna show

Oh I can see you'd rather be playing
I know what your body is saying
One stall away and you don't even know me
I love you

Oh my darlin
Tap three times on the stall floor if you want me
Flush the commode, if the answer is no
Oh my sweetness (tap, tap, tap)
Means you'll meet me in the stall, yay!
Twice on the john means you ain't gonna show

UPDATE: By request, Tony Orlando and Dawn perform the version you probably know.
