The Lyrics

Satire targeting Rep. Tom "The Hammer" DeLay (R-TX), forced out as House Majority Leader following his indictment
(instrumental intro)

They're frying The Hammer.
Got hammered without warning.
Got hammered for misleading; broke laws, and got banned.
The Hammer's in danger.
The Hammer's in mourning.
The Hammer and Shrub have seen that scandals give them blisters.
It's over, he's banned.

Lost power and fell.
Once flung it without warning.
No doubt, he's been relieved of it; it's over, he's banned.
The Right's in danger.
The Right's in mourning
The Hammer and Shrub have seen that scandals give them blisters.
It's over, he's banned.

Power made him strong.
He'd bring it without warning.
He'd bring it to get even; get enemies canned.
Law's bringing danger.
Law gave him warnings.
The Hammer and Shrub have seen that scandals give them blisters.
It's over, he's banned.

Yes, law got The Hammer.
The Hammer caught hell.
Despair is the songs he sings... because he got canned.
'Cause The Hammer got justice,
And he'll lose his freedom.
The Hammer and Shrub have seen that scandals give them blisters.
It's over, he's banned.
