The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

Enron execs ain't no damn good.
Those who trust 'em, get robbed by 'em.
Their misdeeds went unpunished;
The scam by Skilling and Kenny Boy.

Collected treasure for years and years.
Yeah, yeah, those fat cats were the winners,
Enron workers all got screwed.

Feathered nest - the Bush war chest.
Enron learned to bend the rules.
In time, leads to one person: Bush, at their beck and call.
Aiding his side; to blame for Enron's fall.

See Lay's picture in the paper.
Enron news at quickened pace.
Hear how these fat cats don't want to take all the blame...

(Refrain)
Enron's fall... is draggin' Bush down.
Enron's fall... is snaggin' his crown.
Enron's fall... is draggin' him, draggin' him down.

Some people say Shrub's obnoxious and lazy.
Undereducated; his opinion means nothin'.
But we know he's a graft enhancer.
Since his coup, crooks really got bolder.
You'll see what they're after...

His inhuman desire to rule us through fear;
Wants to put armed troops around you.
War puts Bush in the clear,
But can end him, and can break him.
But he don't want to hear...

All his flunkies solve his problems; ain't no news here.
He's in the same old trouble he's been having for years:
He'd collude with Enron, and dismiss the world.
It's all perfectly clear...

Enron's fall... is draggin' Bush down.
Enron's fall... is snaggin' his crown.
Enron's fall... is draggin' him, draggin' him down.

Enron's fall... is draggin' Bush down.
Enron's fall... is snaggin' his crown.
Enron's fall... is draggin' him, draggin' him down.

(repeat refrain and fade)
