The Lyrics

Dedicated to the corrupt Rep. Tom "The Hammer" DeLay (R-TX), indicted former House Majority Leader, who is resigning from Congress in order to deal with possibly more criminal indictments pursued against him for money laundering
(instrumental intro)

Tom quit the Congress, but the law won't quit 'til he's guilty.
Tom quit the Congress, but the law won't quit 'til he's guilty.

DeLay's gone from Washington.
The law has now tracked him down.
Quit Congress now in case he's found guilty
Of corruption that is so filthy.
For corruption that is so filthy.
Tom DeLay...

Tom quit the Congress... he needs lots of dough for his defense.
Tom quit the Congress... for the charges 'gainst him must be quite immense.

Tom the Hammer enforced hatefully,
Just 'cause he said so.
His main crimes were his scams and greed.
Got his thrills making his power grow.
Got his thrills making his power grow.
Tom DeLay...

Tom quit the Congress... he needs lots of dough for his defense.
Tom quit the Congress... he needs lots of dough for his defense.

His scam was "to play, you pay."
DeLay once ran the town.
Buddies and cronies, Jack Abramhoff;
Jail, as they go down.
For their plot, they will go down.
Tom DeLay...

Tom quit the Congress, but the law won't quit 'til he's guilty.
Tom quit the Congress, but the law won't quit 'til he's guilty.

He's Texas toast; law has no mercy.
A schemer is he, guilty.
Tom DeLay the Hammer once did well,
But today, the bottom has dropped out.
Yes, today, the bottom has dropped out.
Tom DeLay...

Tom quit the Congress, but the law won't quit 'til he's guilty.
Tom quit the Congress, but the law won't quit 'til he's guilty.

(repeat refrain and fade)
