The Lyrics

Written in 1996 about then Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich
(instrumental intro)

I think I'm gonna be mad
He's worse than DeLay, yeah
That Newt's incredibly bad
Now hear what I say

He's taking us for a ride
He's taking us for a ri-i-ide
He's taking us for a ride
But he don't care

He said the House G.O.P.
Is running this town, yeah
They think they can be free
To push us around

He's taking us for a ride
He's taking us for a ri-i-ide
He's taking us for a ride
But he don't care

I don't know why he's riding so high
He oughtta think twice
He gotta do right be me
Before he gets to saying "Go die"
He oughtta think twice
He oughtta do right by me

I think I'm gonna be mad
He's worse than DeLay, yeah
That Newt's incredibly bad
Now hear what I say

He's taking us for a ride
He's taking us for a ri-i-ide
He's taking us for a ride
But he don't care

I don't know why he's riding so high
He oughtta think twice
He gotta do right be me
Before he gets to saying "Go die"
He oughtta think twice
He oughtta do right by me

I think I'm gonna be mad
He's worse than DeLay, yeah
That Newt's incredibly bad
Now hear what I say

He's taking us for a ride
He's taking us for a ri-i-ide
He's taking us for a ride
But he don't care

That baby don't care
That baby don't care
That baby don't care
