The Lyrics

Former Enron President Jeff Skilling stiffed Congressional probers about Enron's bankruptcy
Skilling gave Congress the finger...
Spinning out lies with his words.
Skilling proved costly to Enron,
Skilling proved costly... to Enron,
Spinning out whole lies... with his words,
Skilling proved costly... Enron's gone.

(instrumental break)

He said he saw nothing wrong.
He had a hands-off style.
Jeff came to Enron to be its Chief for a while.
And there, hooked up with Ken Lay.
Arranging for their prize...

Skilling gave Congress the finger...
Spinning out lies with his words.
Skilling proved costly to Enron,
Skilling proved costly... to Enron,
Spinning out whole lies... with his words,
Skilling proved costly... Enron's gone.

They made George Bush receiver
Of cash, which bought them clout.
Enron could not be better,
Until they were found out!
When Lay and Skilling finished,
Bringing down Enron...

Skilling gave Congress the finger...
Spinning out lies with his words.
Skilling proved costly to Enron,
Skilling proved costly... to Enron,
Spinning out whole lies... with his words,
Skilling proved costly... Enron's gone.

The White House sure looks gloomy.
Bush handlers tear their hair.
"They could connect this to me,"
Says Bush, in deep despair.
With mud from Enron clinging...
Clinging way too long...

Skilling gave Congress the finger...
Spinning out lies with his words.
Skilling proved costly to Enron,
Skilling proved costly... to Enron,
Spinning out whole lies... with his words,
Skilling proved costly... Enron's gone.

(instrumental break, with vocal ad lib)

Skilling gave Congress the finger...
Spinning out lies with his words.
Skilling proved costly to Enron,
Skilling proved costly... to Enron,
Spinning out whole lies... with his words,
Skilling proved costly... Enron's gone.

He showed Congress disdain...
Skilling was spinning out lies...
Skilling proved costly to Enron,
Skilling proved costly... to Enron,
Spinning out whole lies... with his words,
Skilling proved costly... Enron's gone.
