TITLE: Whatever Became of Hubert?

Whatever became of Hubert
Has anyone heard a thing
Once he shone on his own
Now he sits home alone
And waits for the phone to ring

Once a fiery liberal spirit
Ah, but now when he speaks he must clear it
Second fiddle's a hard part, I know
When they don't even give you a bow

"We must protest his treatment, Hubert"
Says each newspaper reader
As someone once remarked to Schubert
"Take us to your Lieder"

Sorry about that

Whatever became of you, Hubert
We miss you, so tell us please
Are you sad, are you cross, are you gathering moss
While you wait for the boss to sneeze

Does Lyndon, recalling when he was VP
Say, "I'll do unto you like they did unto me"
Do you dream about staging a coup
Hubert, what happened to you
