The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

Let me tell you the story of a bankrupt company,
Who hid all of its debt away.
They picked their investors' pockets,
Ruined lives and families.
This is now called "The Enron Way."

(Chorus:)
How the investors got burned!
The investors got burned!
Workers' money unreturned!
Enron's known forever for deceit, which cost them.
Through their scam, investors got burned.

Ken Lay spent "quality time"
With the leaders of our nation,
Through donations, it was just quite plain...
What Lay got was lax enforcement,
Paid for on his nickel.
Now to Congress, Lay will not explain...

How the investors got burned!
The investors got burned!
Workers' money unreturned!
Enron's known forever for deceit, which cost them.
Through their scam, investors got burned.

"We did no wrong," claimed the Bush administration,
Full of ties to this company.
Enron could thus afford to exist for the wealthy,
Through their fat cats' sheer larceny.

How the investors got burned!
The investors got burned!
Workers' money unreturned!
Enron's known forever for deceit, which cost them.
Through their scam, investors got burned.

"Just what went wrong?!" asks the House investigation.
Kenneth Lay said, "I have no clue."
Bush is fearful of this scandal;
He must contain the damage,
Or its stain will tarnish him, too!

How the investors got burned!
The investors got burned!
Workers' money unreturned!
Enron's known forever for deceit, which cost them.
Through their scam, investors got burned.

Corrupt political bosses don't think Enron's a scandal;
If they have their way, Ken Lay won't pay.
Fight this brand of sleaze!
Campaign finance reform!
Stop continuing the Enron Way!

'Cause the investors got burned!
The investors got burned!
Workers' money unreturned!
Enron's known forever for deceit, which cost them.
Through their scam, investors got burned.
