The Lyrics

Written during the 1999 impeachment hearings about House Mangler Henry Hyde, who was exposed on the Internet as a hypocrite who had a torrid affair when he was 42 years old.
Hyde's not embarrassed
He's gonna prosecute the President
Hyde's not embarrassed
He's gonna prosecute the President

Impeachment obsessed this whole town
They're trying to take Clinton down
They want to declare him guilty
For the crime of perjury
But they're not a true jury
I say...

Hyde's not embarrassed
He's gonna prosecute the President
Hyde's not embarrassed
He's gonna prosecute the President

Clinton's hated by the G.O.P.
For what, we'll never know
These people hate because they have the need
They'd be thrilled to see him go
They'd be thrilled to see him go
I say...

Hyde's not embarrassed
That Kenneth Starr had spared us no expense
Hyde's not embarrassed
That they can't prove an impeachable offense

We knew that it would come to this one day
Impeachment obsessed this whole town
They're going to try to take Bill Clinton down
With a trial that makes the nation frown
It's a trial that makes the nation frown
But I say...

Hyde's not embarrassed
He's gonna prosecute the President
Hyde's not embarrassed
He's gonna prosecute the President

Hyde's not embarrassed
That Kenneth Starr had spared us no expense
Hyde's not embarrassed
That they can't prove an impeachable offense

Reactionaries just disgust me
They caused this insanity
And some day when their party goes to hell
That's the day the people throw them out
That's the day the people throw them out
But I say...

Hyde's not embarrassed
He's gonna prosecute the President
Hyde's not embarrassed
He's gonna prosecute the President...
