Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Written in 1996, targetting Newt Gingrich and the Republicans
(instrumental introduction)

I want the Newt drugged
'Cause he's making me sick
He would shut the government down
Just to make his point stick

I want the Newt drugged
So he won't change the laws
That would let polluters walk
And sabotage with rest with flaws

Chorus:
The man is making me nervous
Wondering what he'll do
He just makes me feel that he is out...
Out to get me and you

I want the Newt drugged
His budget cuts can kill
He said "Programs cost too much,
Cutting them is such a thrill"

I want the Newt drugged
'Cause he won't go away
He would give the rich big tax cuts
And make the rest of us pay

The man is making me nervous
Wondering what he'll do
He just makes me feel that he is out...
Out to get me and you

(instrumental break)

I want the Newt drugged
And made to do what he should
Stop the budget cuts so mad
And made to serve the common good

I want the Newt drugged
Or just throw him out
Those Republicans talk too much
Or they just scream and shout

The man is making me nervous
Wondering what he'll do
He just makes me feel that he is out...
Out to get me and you
