The Lyrics

Narrator: Somebody who thinks he needs a vacation. Again. He and his Maladministration are the REAL animals. Of course, they THINK they're the guys Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil originally wrote this song for: The Righteous Brothers.
(instrumental opening)

In this dirty old place they call D.C.
where the sun refuse to shine
people tell me there ain't no excuse for lying.

Soldier boy, you're so young and virile
but one thing I know is true:
You'll be dead because, Iraq, I blew.

See my daddy, his head he's shaking
'cause I threw his plans away.
He keeps telling me I should've let Saddam stay.
Yes he does!

He's been telling me!
Every day, I'm throwing his plans away!
He's been telling me!
He's been
telling
telling
telling
telling

I gotta get outta this place
if it's the last thing I ever do!
I gotta get outta this place!
Laura, to Crawford now for me and you!

Whoa, yeah!

Had too much of Dick and Rummy
and one thing I know is true
I can't care less for how Katrina blew.
No, I don't.

See the people all over, crying.
Why do they hate me this way?
I've been working for seven hours each day!
Yes, I know!

I've been working! Yeah!
It's so hard, hard work!
I've been working! Yeah!
I've been
working
working
working
working

I gotta get outta this place
if it's the last thing I ever do!
I gotta get outta this place!
Laura, to Crawford now for me and you!

Whoa, yeah!

I gotta get outta this place
if it's the last thing I ever do!
I gotta get outta this place!
Laura, to Crawford now for me and you!

Whoa, you know it, baby!
And I know it, too, baby!
Whoa, yeah!
