The Lyrics

Satire about the thieves at bankrupt Enron, and the access they bought in the Bush White House
(instrumental intro)

They won't stop their stealing, blatent larceny.
Bush's donors got their prize, with impunity.
Dubya told them, "There's no harm, no fight."
"We run the show; everything's all right."

These... crooks who were stealing.
Enron's deceivin', with faked prosperity.

Clout was really handy, 'cause Lay could always find
Bush, who kept Lay first, and never made him wait in line.
Then things went bad for Enron; bankruptcy was no cure.
If Lay gets convicted, could drag down Bush for sure.

Does no good, Shrub, to sit on your throne.
Things catch up, Smirk, you they'll turn upon.

These... crooks who were stealing.
Enron's deceivin', with faked prosperity.

(instrumental interlude)

Does no good, Shrub, to sit on your throne.
Things catch up, Smirk, you they'll turn upon.

These... crooks who were stealing.
Enron's deceivin', with faked prosperity.

(instrumental ending)
