"That Newt Was Sent A-Walkin'"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Written after Newt got the boot by the Republican Party after the 1998 election debacle, as they canned the House Speaker and forced him to retire from Congress
(instrumental intro)

Newt kept saying he's hot, but he's crazy
Was once Speaker, but he made a mess
He started a-messin' where he shouldn't have been a-messin'
When his party lost those seats, Newt was distressed

Well, that Newt was sent a-walking
And we gave him the boot
Nowadays we know Newt is gonna squawk, "What will I do?"

Newt kept lyin' 'cause he kept a-goofin'
Newt kept losing, Clinton's who he couldn't "get"
Newt kept blamin' voters for their party-changin'
What's right is right, but Newt ain't been right yet

Well, that Newt was sent a-walking
And we gave him the boot
Nowadays we know Newt is gonna squawk, "What will I do?"

(instrumental break)

Newt kept saying, "We'll win, let's keep praying"
And Newt kept thinking that he'd never get burnt
(HA!)
On Election Day, Newt lit a box of matches
(YEAH!)
They blew up because he reaped what he had earned

Well, that Newt was sent a-walking
And we gave him the boot
Nowadays we know Newt is gonna squawk, "What will I do?"

(Spoken:)
Are you ready, Newt?
Start walkinŽ!
