The Lyrics

Satire about the corrupt former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX), forced to resign from his post after being indicted during September 21 on state charges of criminal conspiracy to inject illegal campaign contributions to redistrict Texas during the 2002 elections
(instrumental intro)

DeLay finds himself in times of trouble
G.O.P. and Company
What ruined his kingdom?
Petty greed.

His world turned to darkness;
Cannot lead his House majority.
What ruined his kingdom?
Petty greed.

Petty greed... petty greed... petty greed... petty greed...
What ruined his kingdom?
Petty greed.

Tom's broken-hearted people living in his district see:
What leads to the slammer? Petty greed.
The power game DeLay started: revenue enhanced, illegally.
What leads to the slammer? Petty greed.

Petty greed... petty greed... petty greed... petty greed...
What ruined his kingdom?
Petty greed.

(instrumental break)

He went far Right so loudly; brought our country blight, so shamefully.
Swine has no tomorrows; petty greed.
Indicting him, to our ears, music; G.O.P. are all guilty.
What ruined their kingdom? Petty greed.

Petty greed... petty greed... petty greed... petty greed...
What ruined his kingdom?
Petty greed.

(instrumental ending)
