Where In The World Is Connie Mack The Fourth?

whereisconniemackWell, he jets around the country asking millionaires for money
Running for the Senate to spend more time in DC
Thought he represented Florida, but chills in Cali with his honey
Where in the world is Connie Mack the Fourth?

$1,000 luncheons when he drops by New York City
Strike it rich at the Petroleum Club and everything’s OK
Pass the 10-gallon hat at his Dallas, Texas soiree
Where in the world is Connie Mack the Fourth?
