The Lyrics

Written in 1996, when Newt Gingrich was still the powerful Republican Speaker of the House
(instrumental intro)

I see a bad Newt rising
I see trouble on the way
I see brimstone and lightning
I see bad times to pay

Watch TV tonight
It's bound to change your life
There's a bad Newt on the rise

Hope you have got your life together
Hope you are quite prepared to cry
Looks like we've got a nasty Congress
One fib is followed by a lie

Watch TV tonight
It's bound to change your life
There's a bad Newt on the rise

(instrumental solo)

(repeat verses)
