The Lyrics

Written in 1996, targetting House Speaker Newt Gingrich
(instrumental intro)

There in the House in Washington
He's called the White-Haired One
And he's been the ruin of many poor folks
And he's not even done

Newt said the poor are failures
He called them welfare queens
He has a "drain the wetlands" plan
He'll use any means.

Now the only thing a politician needs
Are money and bonds of junk
Now his Contract has us all terrified
Because it's full of bunk

(organ solo)

Oh, Mother! Tell your children
Of the bad things that he's done
He gave our lives such utter misery
From the House of the White-Haired One

He wants a balanced budget
While poor folks suffer such pain
By helping the polluters
The man must be insane

There in the House in Washington
He's called the White-Haired One
And he's been the ruin of many poor folks
And he's not even done

(instrumental ending)
