The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

Enron is no more.
Just a shadow of before.
It went down, went down, went down...
Worthless bad stock, maybe...
Use it to wipe up the ground.

Enron chiefs were creeps.
Got rich, through their deceit.
So Enron went down, went down.
Workers fend for themselves.
Investor loss knows no bounds.

To commit this crime,
They hid their bottom line,
Through their off-shore companies,
Off-shore companies.
Ken Lay's a dirty rat.
Do you need more proof?
Tell me, what else can you call this robbery?

Enron is no more.
Just a shadow of before.
It went down, went down, went down...
Worthless bad stock, maybe...
Use it to wipe up the ground, the ground...
Use it to wipe up the ground.

Hey, Key Lay!

Enron's gone kaput,
With Ken Lay as the head man.
It went down, went down, went down...
Worthless bad stock, maybe...
Use it to wipe up the ground.

To commit this crime,
They hid their bottom line,
Through their off-shore companies,
Off-shore companies.
Ken Lay's a dirty rat.
Do you need more proof?
Tell me, what else can you call this robbery?

Enron is no more.
Just a shadow of before.
It went down, went down, went down...
Worthless bad stock, maybe...
Use it to wipe up the ground, the ground...
Use it to wipe up the ground.

Hey, Key Lay... Will you pay?
Hey, Key Lay... Will you pay?
Hey, Key Lay... Will you pay?
Hey, Key Lay... Will you pay?
Drag Bush Baby, drag him down, yes...
Drag Bush Baby, drag him down, yes...
Drag Bush Baby, drag him down, yes...
Drag Bush Baby, drag him down, yes...
