“Mumbo Jumbo” – Stop the World—I Want To Get Off
Music and Lyrics: Leslie Bricusse & Anthony Newley
After Republican presidential hopeful John McCain announced Sarah Palin as his running mate on this day in 2008, politics were certainly mumbo jumbo during the race for office. Then again, aren’t politics always mumbo jumbo? They are according to Littlechap, who satirically spouts nonsense when he campaigns for public office in this number. The leading man emcees the story of his life from growing up, getting married, having children and affairs, and eventually dying in this musical yarn about the things we want and find important in our short time on this earth.
