The Lyrics

Bunch of clowns in D.C. town
Take kickbacks when lobbyists are around,
Some snag a lagniappe, but others steal too much,
Sh*t hits the fan, they try to cover up.

Whores in the USA (4x)

Then they start losin' their hometown fans
Who see the cash that's stuffed in their fat hands,
Pols give 'em a song and dance,
Exemplifying O'Rourke's* rants.


Spouses drip with diamond finery
Or get hired in a cushy consultancy.
Nearly every one's got a greased hand. . .
A legislative bandit band.


For these factotums, a race on
To shed swag from Abramoff.
The feds will take Jack off
To jail while his pale paid-off hacks scoff.
Some nailed when their benefactor spouts off.


Some a**holes may end up in the penitentiary
If the proceedings are evidentiary.
Before long, more swag toads
Will get elected, haul in more bagloads.


*P.J. O'Rourke, author of the antigovernment diatribe "Parliament of Whores," Vintage Books, 1992.
