The Lyrics

Written in 1996, when House Speaker Newt Gingrich was trying to force his "Contract On America" down our throats after the Republicans gained the majority in Congress
(instrumental intro)

I thought newts were just like frogs in fairy tales
Names for critters, not Speakers-to-be
Ah, this Newt has upset me
Got me really steamed
Newt's appointment taunted us with his dreams

Though he won the race
I'm not a believer
Newt's off base
He's out of his mind
Had enough
I'm not a believer, Newt's a deceiver who has lied

Newt thought government should not be giving things
It made him behave just like a snot
After months of trying
Gingrich wrecked the train
Government shut down, Newt's insane

Though he won the race
I'm not a believer
Newt's off base
He's out of his mind
Had enough
I'm not a believer, Newt's a deceiver who has lied

(instrumental interlude)

Ah, this Newt has upset me
Got me really steamed
Newt's appointment haunted all my dreams

Though we lost the race
I'm not a believer
Newt's off base
He's out of his mind
Had enough
I'm not a believer, Newt's a deceiver who has lied

Though he won the race
I'm not a believer
Newt's off base
He's out of his mind
Had enough
I'm not a believer, Newt's a deceiver who has lied...

(repeat refrain and fade)
