The Lyrics

Hooray! Things proved too much for the Newt
(Too much for the Newt... He couldn't take it)
So he's leaving the House... was forced to go
(He said he's going)
He said he's going back to find
(Going back to find)
Ooh, what's left of his world
The world whipped his behind
Not so long ago
He's leavin' (leavin')
All the kook right wing for Georgia (leavin' all the kook right wing)
He's going back... without a trace this time
(Without a trace this time, guess his reputation's not worth a dime)
Who wants to be with him (don't know who will)
Except the kook right wing in Georgia?
(No one but the kook right wing in Georgia, whoo-hoo!)
I'm glad to live in this world (live in this world)
And be without him - that's fine
(Newt - got the boot - Get lost - Newt, leave us alone!)

He kept dreamin' (dreamin')
He'd win if he helped Ken Starr
(Stupid Starr, 'cause he didn't get far)
But he sure found out the hard way
That dreams... don't always come true
(Dreams don't always come true - uh-uh - oh, no!)
Clinton dashed all his hopes (boo-hoo, boo-hoo!)
And defeated Kenneth Starr (boo-hoo, boo-hoo!)
Now the Newt says "go stick it"
To the wife he once knew
Oh yes, he did
He said he would, uh-huh!

He's leavin' (leavin')
All the kook right wing for Georgia (leavin' all the kook right wing)
He's going back... without a trace this time
(Without a trace this time, guess his reputation's not worth a dime)
Who wants to be with him (don't know who will)
Except the kook right wing in Georgia?
(No one but the kook right wing in Georgia, whoo-hoo!)
I'm glad to live in this world (live in this world)
And be without him - that's fine
(Newt - got the boot - Get lost - Newt, leave us alone!)

Let him go, can't afford
Can't afford to let him stay no more
Let him go, can't afford
Can't afford to let him stay no more

(Repeat last verse and fade)
