The Lyrics

As I walk through the White House in the shadow of scandal
Take a look at my reign and know that this I can't handle
Coz I've been dopin and drinkin so long, that
even Cheney knows that my mind is gone
But I never took a payoff that I didn't deserve
Me turn down a contribution? You know that's unheard of!
You better watch how you're talking, and where you're walking
Or you and your homies might be taken by Ashcroft.
I really love to whine, I don't wanna go broke.
I see my whole career going up in smoke. Heck!
I'm the kinda Pres the Grand Old Party wants me to be
Saying what I am told, my strings pulled by Boss Cheney

Been spending most my life, living in an Enron Paradise
Got richer more than twice, living in an Enron Paradise
We all thought we'd roll the dice and live in an Enron Paradise
Hope Kenny Boy tells lies 'bout living in our Enron Paradise

They got old Cheney talkin', they got Rove sellin'
Got Lawrence B. Lindsey as a paid Enron consultant
They say all of my staff is tied up with Enron
My appointees and my family, the list just goes on!
I'm know I'm just a fool with money on my mind
Got cash in the bank and a cut on my eye.
Thought I had all the media on my side but
they've all turned against me, even those in my pocket! Geeze!
My approval ratings' gonna slip away
I'm playing down all I did with Kenneth Lay
I'm Pres now, but will I be in 2004?
The way things are going I don't know.

Greed's our game, our way, but now I see
That the one's who'll hurt, are my friends and me
Been spending most our lives, living in an Enron Paradise
Got richer more than twice, living in an Enron Paradise
We all thought we'd roll the dice and live in an Enron Paradise
Hope Kenny Boy tells lies 'bout living in our Enron Paradise

Power and the money, money and the power
Minute after minute, hour after hour
Everybody's running, but they caught us red-handed
This investigation's gonna get my administration stranded.
Zoellick and Kassinger, Schubert and White
Racicot, Gillespieógot them all dead to rights!
I guess we're screwed, though we shouldn't
Half a mill in campaign funds, I know it doesn't look good, Shoot!

Been spending most our lives, living in an Enron Paradise
Got richer more than twice, living in an Enron Paradise
We all thought we'd roll the dice and live in an Enron Paradise
Hope Kenny Boy tells lies 'bout living in our Enron Paradise

Been spending most our lives, living in an Enron Paradise
Got richer more than twice, living in an Enron Paradise
We all thought we'd roll the dice and live in an Enron Paradise
Hope Kenny Boy tells lies 'bout living in our Enron Paradise

Greed's our game, our way, but now I see
That the one's who'll hurt, are my friends and me
Greed's our game, our way, but now I see
That the one's who'll hurt, are my friends and me
