The Lyrics

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

The power of Newt is a terrible thing
For the poor or weak who fear the right wing
He's played his part of political brute
He has no feeling - that's the power of Newt

Once suffered in silence on the loser's team
Longing to lead them for the right wing's dream
Then the Newt won good, one Election Night
Power of Newt makes you moan with fright

He took our money, it's all a game
He cut the budget hard, and wrecked this train
He's wrong and he's sullen, and a fool sometimes
But he will affect your life...
Beware the power of Newt
Beware the power of Newt

His right wing agenda just makes me mad
His whole gang of cohorts are really bad
We would be glad, maybe, he will be found
Lacking as Speaker, and gain no ground

He took the money, it's all a game
He cut the budget hard, and wrecked this train
He's wrong and he's sullen, and a fool sometimes
But he will affect your life...
Beware the power of Newt

They say the power of Newt is feared
'Cause he doesn't care
He'll rob the poor to feed the rich
And he thinks that's fair
Let's all go give Gingrich the boot
Beware the power of Newt!
That's the power of Newt!

(instrumental break)

He took the money, it's all a game
He cut the budget hard, and wrecked this train
Suffers delusions, no longer genteel
He won't feel nothing till he feels
He feels the power of Newt, just the power of Newt
That's the power, the power of Newt
Let's stop the power
Stop the power of Newt
Let's go and give him the boot!
