The Lyrics

Written in 1996, about House Speaker Newt Gingrich
(instrumental intro)

The Newt, the Newt is everything they say
And he's as nasty as can be
Who else would dare give about a trillion bucks
To those already wealthy?
Then he cut the budget - yes, the federal budget
He did it with a lot of guile
But it's still that same old back room dealing
That really really proves he's wild...

They say the Newt is on a roll, but retreating
And from what I've seen I believe 'em
Now that baby may be barely teething
But the Newt is on a roll,
The Newt is on a roll, but retreating

Freshmen GOP are all in his grip
It's something everyone should see
Budget fights where Republican pols
All vote in unity

When they cut the budget, the federal budget
They say that we are out of cash
But it's still that same old back room dealing
We really ought to kick them in the...

They say the Newt is on a roll, but retreating
And from what I've seen I believe 'em
Now that baby may be barely teething
But the Newt is on a roll,
The Newt is on a roll, but retreating

(instrumental break)

VA, EPA and the rest got shut down; "balanced budget" is a ruse
Cuts in programs Republicans don't like; social security, too
And the federal workers were put on furlough
All hostage to his bile
'Cause it's still that same old back room dealing
That really really proves he's wild...

They say the Newt is on a roll, but retreating
And from what I've seen I believe 'em
Now that baby may be barely teething
But the Newt is on a roll,
The Newt is on a roll, but retreating...
