Lyrics for San Clemente’s Not the Same, Mr Nixon You’re to Blame (by Barbara Foster)

So, someone found a popular song for which lyrics were not online! And it was on my site, of a song for which I posted a video! At their request, I typed out the lyrics and they are below the video.

Sing along folks cause it’s a great singalong tune!

There was a town, so quiet and still
Then came the folks, from Capitol Hill
San Clemente’s not the same
Mr Nixon, you’re to blame!

You made our town , your summer home
You crowned it with, the Capital dome
You took a step, out on the beach
Now Cotton’s Point, is out of reach

There was a town, so quiet and still
Then came the folks, from Capitol Hill
San Clemente’s not the same
Mr Nixon, you’re to blame!

At nine we used, to close the bar
That was OK, with F.D.R.
Oh Mr Nixon, you’re so great
But must your guest, stay out so late?

There was a town, so quiet and still
Then came the folks, from Capitol Hill
San Clemente’s not the same
Mr Nixon, you’re to blame!

Before we close, I’d like to say
Oh, neighbour we’d, like you to stay
But would you take, us off the map
And give us back, our noon day nap

There was a town, so quiet and still
Then came the folks, from Capitol Hill
San Clemente’s not the same
Mr Nixon, you’re to blame!

Mr Nixon, you’re to blame…

Mr Nixon, you’re to blame…

What beautiful lyric writing! To start out with a first verse that opened the story, but also served as a repeatable chorus! You try writing a story where the intro can be repeated to finish off each section!

San Clemente’s Not the Same, Mr Nixon You’re to Blame!

Just watched Our Nixon on CNN, and my favourite part was this little rag at the end! A cute little ditty by sung by Barbara Foster and written by Myron Ace, its theme denounces the Washington/political tourist crowd that bombarded San Clemente after Richard Nixon moved to San Clemente’s coastal hamlet and bought the Cotton’s estate. To this day the home is still known as the Western White House.

I don’t think this song has ever gotten the attention it just got now on CNN! I get the feeling it’s gonna be sung a lot more often now with its catchy chorus of “Mr Nixon, you’re to blame” and Nixon’s image associated with the Watergate Scandal that seemed like everybody around Nixon went to jail for except Nixon.

Mr Nixon, you’re to blame… Mr Nixon you’re to blame…

69 Printable Alice in Wonderland Cards and Posters

The movie Alice in Wonderland has a lot of great images, and many of them are available online at fairly large sizes. However, they are often a bit grainy, or not of a convenient size to take and print, and lacking a little punch in colour intensity. Well, I’ve remedied that with this collection of high resolution printable cards and posters of images from Alice in Wonderland.

These are high resolution (300 dpi) files you can use to print at your local photo machine or store. Chain stores processing photos like Walmart and Staples are more than good enough to print these nicely. You can also use these images for all the photo gifts you can get these days, whether on cups, T-shirts, blankets or just good old fashioned posters.

The files come in several sizes:

  • 6 x 4 inches
  • 8 x 12 inches
  • 12 x 18 inches
  • 16 x 24 inches

All of these can be scaled to 6×4 inch photos without cutting off anything so you can print any file here as a 6×4 photo. I didn’t want to have smaller versions of larger poster files for the sake of smaller sizes.

Please be patient for downloads because the bigger files are several MB in size.

You can print these files at larger sizes, up to 50% larger for the 8×12 sizes and larger. Some sharpness would be lost, obviously, but I think they should still be OK instead of high quality, as they are at the recommended sizes listed with each picture. A lot also depends on the printer you use. Since I can’t afford to test print all these images at larger sizes, on all printers, to see how they turn out, if you print at larger than listed sizes, you would be doing so at your own risk.

I have also created wallpapers and backgrounds for iPhones and Blackberries from these files.

Please do not print these files for commercial use because it’s one thing to create fan art to share for people’s use, it’s another to be profiting off of them. Thank you.
