The Lyrics

Written in 1996, when Newt Gingrich was Speaker of the House
(Instrumental intro)

You're leader of the party
Of all the fat cats who own the yachts
Your plans strategically aim to cut the funds
Of those who oppose your plots
You have one eye on the money as
Your book is selling hot
And the right wing dream that
They'll be your partner
They'll be your partner, but
You're insane

If you don't think this song is about you, you're insane
You don't think that this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you?

You got in twenty years ago
When voters were quite naive
And when they wake up
You'd better be prepared
For when you will have to leave
'Cause you took away the things we love
Because your party's mean
You had some dreams
Caused by drugs in your coffee
Drugs in your coffee, 'cause
You're insane

If you don't think this song is about you, you're insane
You don't think that this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you?

(Instrumental break)

You had some dreams caused by drugs in your coffee
Drugs in your coffee, 'cause you're insane

If you don't think this song is about you, you're insane
You don't think that this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you?

Well, you took a trip out to Oklahoma
To see what damage was done
But your party's holding the Waco hearings
For the political mileage to run
Are you where you should be all the time?
And when you're not, you're with
Political hacks and the likes of Rush Limbaugh
Likes of Rush Limbaugh, 'cause
You're insane

If you don't think this song is about you, you're insane
You don't think that this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you?

You're insane... you don't think that this song is about you...
You're insane... you don't think that this song is about you...
You're insane... you don't think that this song is about you...
You're insane... you don't think that this song is about you...
