The Lyrics

Written in 1996 - one of Newt Gingrich's favorite tactics for attacking government agencies and programs he and the Republicans disliked was to cut their budgets, often in the middle of late night legislative sessions
(instrumental intro)

They're gonna work 'til the midnight hour
That's when the law comes crumbling down
They're gonna work till the midnight hour
That's when there's no one else around

They're gonna hit the EPA
And take their funds away
In the midnight hour

They're gonna wait 'til the stars come out
That's when the right wing wants to shine
They're gonna wait 'til the stars come out
When they have malice in their eye

They're gonna cut the federal budget
In secret so you can't judge it
In the midnight hour

(instrumental break)

They're gonna work 'til the midnight hour
That's when the law comes crumbling down
They're gonna work 'til the midnight hour
That's when there's no one else around

They're gonna take the EPA
And take their funds away
In the midnight hour
