The Lyrics

Watch out! Place is blighted with grafters,
Boobs, crazies, some deranged like mange curs.
How many votes did they buy?
Vermin in the House.

These shites. . .the party's never over.
These shites. . .voted out almost never.
Once these shmucks are in, they stay.
Vermin in the House.

Either ticket, mostly bag men and gals, lobbyists' whores--
Transplant face to their rears.
Pork projects--they raise the bar for graft way up to the stars.
On the hog, livin'' high.

All pests. Like swine, feed off the tax code.
Shakedown thieves walking in broad daylight.
Four hundred thirty-five sleazebags.
Vermin in the House.

These dunces know how to waste
Many, many billions of pelf.
Talk about human waste!
People who do not do work
And collect taxpayer-paid checks.
Bunch o' jerks. . .know no shame.

This House needs an exterminator
'sbecome a vermin germinator
Something's gotta sweep out all these creeps
Vermin in the House.

It's risible that they support us;
They're out or all they can get.
Like sh!t, they clump together.
It's enough to make you retch,
Staring at C-Span on the set. . .
Ignites desire for ire.

Vermin in the House.
