The Lyrics

Dedicated to Arthur Andersen management's handling of their Enron account
(instrumental intro)

"The books looked funny; they're deceiving you" were the charges hurled.
From cooking Enron's books, we understand that Andersen's the "best."
Workers said, "Enron is no friend of mine."
The Grand Old Party's mess.

Evidence is more than circumstantial.
It's another tricky corporate crime.
'Cause Enron shows when you're auditing somebody,
You can't be greedy all the time.

Andersen...
The Enron Scandal's killing you.
Oh, Andersen...
They're blaming you.

Soon you'll be asked by the Congress: "How?"
Will you refuse to point fingers,
Lying to prop up Bush the Fake?
Such greed took hold, just as Enron planned.
The "secret book" was no mistake.

The White House wishes they could stop you from talking.
They all fear the painful things you might say.
We think Bush buddies will just put up a big fight.
And they'll demand to make this "go away."

Andersen...
The Enron Scandal's killing you.
Oh, Andersen...
They're blaming you.

(instrumental fade)
