The Lyrics

Written in 1996, about then House Speaker Newt Gingrich and the freshman Republicans elected to Congress in 1994
(instrumental intro)

Since I hate you, I think that you are so strange.
All the time you're seeking fame.
You say that you will help to lead the coup.
But we don't want your dumb crew.

Each night I pray there will somehow come a day
When you lose it all and go away.
Those freshmen act the same way, too.
And I wonder what it is they feel for you.

(Chorus:)
Could they all be following Newt?
Could they all be following Newt?
Could they all be following Newt?
With Newt? With Newt? With Newt?

They cut all budgets down - that really brings them joy.
That Newt is just a good ole boy.
But Gingrich, you'll always be just short of victory.
Your downfall is your destiny.

You can sure he will let the poor folks drown.
When they need help, he will screw around.
But Gingrich, you'll always be just short of victory
You're the same old G.O.P.

Could they all be following Newt?
Could they all be following Newt?
Could they all be following Newt?
With Newt? With Newt? With Newt?

(instrumental break)

But Gingrich, you'll always be just short of victory
You're the same old G.O.P.

Could they all be following Newt?
Could they all be following Newt?
Could they all be following Newt?
With Newt? With Newt? With Newt?

(repeat chorus and fade)
