The Lyrics

Written in 1996 - satire about the House Republicans' favorite weapon against government programs and agencies they didn't like: cutting their budget. As sung by Newt Gingrich and the House Republicans:
(intrumental intro)

We just need your votes, please
So we can ram through
Cuts in social programs
For poor bums like you

Cut the budget
Cut the budget
We ain't got nothing for welfare, but
Eight bucks a week

One thing we can say now
We're the G.O.P.
We hate social programs
All from A to Z

Cut the budget
Cut the budget
We ain't got nothing for welfare, but
Eight bucks a week

Eight bucks a week
Is a-a-all we have for you
Eight bucks a week
If you don't like it, we don't care

Programs for pollution
Like the EPA
Are not the solution
Let's send them away

Cut their budget
Cut their budget
They won't have money to spend but
Eight bucks a week

Eight bucks a week
Is a-a-all we have for you
Eight bucks a week
If you don't like it, we don't care

We'll balance the budget
We're the G.O.P.
Help us, don't begrudge it
Wealth should be tax free

Cut the budget
Cut the budget
We ain't got nothing for welfare, but
Eight bucks a week... Eight bucks a week
