Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Dedicated to Ken Lay, Jeff Skilling, and other Enron executives
(instrumental intro)

Well, we know there
Hasn't been a small, small crime
They've been doin'.
Enron's mess left them doin' fine.
Through Republican cronies, got away.
But it ain't funny,
Their crime just slips away.

How's their dude, Shrub?
They hope that he's doin' fine.
Ken Lay told him:
"Need protection, so I won't do time."
Through Republican cronies, got away.
But it ain't funny,
Their crime just slips away.

(instrumental break)

Covering up now,
So Bush won't run aground.
He's inept, so
Voters may just throw him out of town.
Press corp members try to sell you: "There's no crime."
They're gonna pay.
Still downsizing while crime slips away.
