The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

Cooked balance sheets, wall of silence.
And - and screwed lots of workers when done.
White House harangue and white-washing.
And - and they won't blame it on Dim Son.
You know, the fall of Enron's due to reckless attitude.
It really takes a liar.
You know, the fall of Enron's due to reckless attitude.
It really takes a liar.

Lay won't say a thing on TV.
Falling apart, but no sorrier.
Won't admit what he did.
Good God, the fall of Enron's due to reckless attitude.
It really takes a liar.
You know, the fall of Enron's due to reckless attitude.
It really takes a liar.

(Sung over instrumental break:)
Oh no...
Oh no...
Oh no...
Oh no...

Who is to blame in this country?
People say Bush is the one.
Stealin' us blind in this nation.
Fat cats feed off everyone.
Oh no, the fall of Enron's due to reckless attitude.
It really takes a liar.
Oh no, the fall of Enron's due to reckless attitude.
It really takes a liar.

(Sung over instrumental break:)
Out with the cheats...
Out with the cheats...
Out, they can't stay 'round...
Let the dark side go down...

Oh no, the fall of Enron's due to reckless attitude.
It really takes a liar.
Oh no, the fall of Enron's due to reckless attitude.
It really takes a liar.

Mock them in the day time...
Mock them on the Right...
