The Lyrics

Written in 1998, after the Republicans lost seats in Congress during the November 1998 elections, making then House Speaker Newt Gringrich a very unpopular man, even within his own party.
Day after day, on Capitol Hill
The man with the big white hair
Is so annoyingly shrill
But nobody wants to see him
They can see that Newt's just a fool
Newt thinks he is the king, but

He's the Fool on the Hill
It's so fun seeing him down
Spinning lies from his head
While his cause gains no ground

He wants his way, the head of the crowd
This man of a thousand vices
Is a windbag so loud
But nobody wants to hear him
Though the ground appears to shake
But he never seems to know that

He's the Fool on the Hill
It's so fun seeing him down
Spinning lies from his head
While his cause gains no ground

(Instrumental break)

But nobody seems to like him
Now Newt doesn't know what to do
Defeats have just left him reeling

He's the Fool on the Hill
It's so fun seeing him down
Spinning lies from his head
While his cause gains no ground

It's so fun seeing him down
Spinning lies from his head
While his cause gains no ground
