Appointed Forever

A lovely little ditty came to my attention on Monday (yes, it was the high point of said day) thanks to sources that shall remain nameless here.  I heard the song, but had no idea who the artist was, and thanks to someone who (unlike me and much to my chagrin) could really whistle, and loudly, it stayed in my head ALL DAY, during classes, oral arguments for LR&W, everything, reasserting itself now that I've settled in to read Property (probably because of the great relation to the original song, the case is 144 Vt. 150).  

Thanks to the miracle of Google, I discovered that the song is entitled, fittingly, "Appointed Forever" (to the tune of "Happy Together" by the Turtles) and is performed by "The Bar and Grill Singers."  The lyrics?  Well, they start out:

Imagine me as God. I do.
I think about it day and night.
It feels so right
To be a federal district judge and know that I'm
Appointed forever. 
I was anointed by the President,
And revelation told him I was heaven-sent.
And Congress in their wisdom granted their consent.
Appointed forever. 

I'm a federal judge
And I'm smarter than you
For all my life.
I can do whatever I want to do
For all my life.

Oh, and where did I copy those from?  Suboh v. Borgioli, 298 F. Supp. 2d 192, 194, that's where.  Yes, the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts put them in an opinion.  Incidentally, I cannot find the full lyrics anywhere yet, they were at one time on Volokh in their entirety, but the link now goes to some strange page.  Anyhow, there are a couple of site's that allow you to play or to download the MP3 (I think that's a no-no), just Google "Appointed Forever."      


I've got their whole CD if you want it.
