The Lyrics

After losing all public credibility, Bush's lightning rod, the unqualified Attorney General Alberto "Gonzo" Gonzalez continues to be pummeled by Congress and continuing political scandals in the Department of Justice he allegedly leads
(instrumental intro)

Fading Gonzalez, fire at his feet.
Fired prosecutors when they wouldn't cheat.
It isn't funny, 'cause he can't defend
Favors for Bush chummies; on him, they depend.

Prosecutors told to start a court case:
Harassing the Democrats who run.
Now a major scandal which has got legs.
Gonzo is done!

Fading Gonzalez; clearly not the best.
Department mismanaged, as Goodling confessed.
(instrumental of 3rd line of lyric)
Gonzo is done!

Fading Gonzalez; lies to Congress fed;
Now must face the music for how he misled.

Thuggery of goons is never-ending.
Read your morning papers; what they've done:
Partisanship, Bushies are defending.
Gonzo is done!

Fading Gonzalez; fire at his feet.
Fired prosecutors when they wouldn't cheat.

(instrumental ending)
