All together, now

I was sitting at the piano, playing through an old school music book from about eighty years gone, just amusing myself while waiting for a meeting to start. I came across this 1854 classic by Stephen Foster.
Let us pause in life's pleasures and count its many tears,
While we all sup sorrow with the poor;
There's a song that will linger forever in our ears;
Oh hard times come again no more.

Chorus:
Tis the song, the sigh of the weary,
Hard Times, hard times, come again no more
Many days you have lingered around my cabin door;
Oh hard times come again no more.

Hard Times. I wonder if anyone in the Romney campaign knows this old song? They might find a use for it.
