The Lyrics

Hi there...I'm Dennnis. Dennis Hastert. The Speaker of the House? See, only a third of Americans know who I am. And..and it's so painful knowing that Newt's sucessor, me, has no name recognition and doesn't matter. They only care 'bout that DeLay hotshot! But anyway...
I'm being a congressman today
Takes everything I've got;
Can't get a break from all your worries
Sure would help a lot.
Somehow I'd like to get my name
Into the public mind
Why nobody here knows my name,
Sad, When I, Dennnis Hastert came;
Seems that everyone can't see,
Speaker of the House wants fame;
I'd like to be where everybody knows my name.
I'd like to be where I'd be seen,
I don't matter in this place;
I'd like to be where everybody knows my name.

Did you make your way into the House today?
Can't miss me if not;
Because no one cares 'bout my worries
Sure would help a lot.
Cause I don't matter you say...

I matter much as in this world
Trent Lott does now today,
Because no one's glad you came;
I'd like to be where people know,
Dennis Hastert's short name;
I'd like to be where everybody knows my name.
I'd like to be where people know,
Dennis Hastert's short name;
I'd like to be where everybody knows my name.

Kenton - You have brought up an interesting fact - Dennis Hastert is next in line to be president after Bush and Cheney and almost nobody knows him.
