The Lyrics

Written in 1998, after Newt Gingrich announced his retirement from Congress as Speaker of the House after the Republicans lost seats in the 1998 elections
(instrumental intro)

Newt, you're so bad, with a devious mind
You're so loathesome all the time
Though we kicked your baby behind, it blew by you

Save us trouble, save us time
Just go where the sun don't shine
Though your party paid for your crimes, it blew by you

You're gonna pack someday
And we'll say it blew by you
At the finish line
We will hear you whine it blew by you

When you wish to gloat
You will clutch your throat
And then refuse to see
An election surprise
Your party cries, "Oh, how could it be?"

If you go act crazy again
Think your power will never end
Maybe you'll be happy, but then, it blew by you

Save us trouble, save us time
Just go where the sun don't shine
Though your party paid for your crimes, it blew by you

You're gonna pack someday
And we'll say it blew by you
At the finish line
We wlll hear you whine it blew by you

When you wish to gloat
You will clutch your throat
And then refuse to see
An election surprise
Your party cries, "Oh, how could it be?"

(instrumental break)

Oh, the world won't mind
If your side
From Tom DeLay to Henry Hyde
Gets sent away
'Cause you couldn't stay in power if you tried

So, whatever you do
It won't help you
It blew...by...you
