The Lyrics

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

I never met a guy who makes me mad the way that you do
(You're no good)
Whenever I'm asked who makes nightmares real,
I tell them you do
(You really could)

Well, fee-fi-fo-fum
The G.O.P. is really dumb

(Chorus:)
This House Speaker's looking like a fool
So get ready, get ready
His budget cutting can be really cruel
So get ready, get ready
So, look out!
Get ready, 'cause here he comes
Get ready, 'cause here he comes

He's playing hide and seek with your money,
Well, let me remind you
(He's no good)
His party's got a secret agenda
And it could blind you
(He really could)
Well, fee-fi-fo-fum
The G.O.P. is really dumb

This House Speaker's looking like a fool
So get ready, get ready
His budget cutting can be really cruel
So get ready, get ready
So, look out!
Get ready, 'cause here he comes
Get ready, 'cause here he comes

(Instrumental break)

He's playing games with social programs and the environment
(He's no good)
He'll cut out entire agencies of the government
(He really could)
Well, fee-fi-fo-fum
The G.O.P. is really dumb

This House Speaker's looking like a fool
So get ready, get ready
His budget cutting can be really cruel
So get ready, get ready
So, look out!
Get ready, 'cause here he comes
Get ready, 'cause here he comes
