The Lyrics

Written in 1996, about Newt Gingrich's assault on environmental protection by attacking the EPA's budget
(instrumental intro)

We are weary
Feeling small
The Newt's been in our eyes
Since late last fall
Thorn in our side
Now the times are rough
Good sense just can't be found

Like a barge on polluted water
He will drag us down
Like a barge on polluted water
He will drag us down

For those down and out
Living on the street
When budget cuts fall hard
Who will comfort you?
Newt did his part
Now the darkness comes
And pain goes all around

Like a barge on polluted water
He will drag us down
Like a barge on polluted water
He will drag us down

(instrumental)

Sail on, budget bill
Sail on by
This time they're going to try
To wreck our dreams and have their way
Out of their minds
They are not your friends
Their failure would be fine

Like a barge on polluted water
They will drag us down
Like a barge on polluted water
They will drag us down
