The Lyrics

Dedicated to the CEO of the bankrupt Enron Energy Corporation,
a top Bush-protected crony
(instrumental intro)

Ken Lay had some powerful friends who were kind:
George Bush, whom he carried; now Enron's declined.
To investors' sorrow, no one's left to pay.
Was a sure bet for Bush Boy with no mind: Ken Lay.

Bankruptcy's handy.
Employees screwed over.
He don't give a damn,
To him, greed's everything.
Lay feasted when able.
Now his party's over.
Prepared to help Dubya the King.

Ken Lay had some powerful friends who were kind:
George Bush, whom he carried; now Enron's declined.

Enron got all dented; demise now the story.
Ken Lay broke his promises; fraud is his thing.
Ken Lay and his cronies and big wigs aren't sorry,
While they laugh, workers cry - get nothing.

Ken Lay had some powerful friends who were kind:
George Bush, whom he carried; now Enron's declined.
To investors' sorrow, no one's left to pay.
Was a sure bet for Bush Boy with no mind: Ken Lay.
