The Lyrics

We cannot kick ’em out; they’ve too much patron clout—
so, gain.
They are piling up mounds of cash they’ve “found”—
mo’ gain.
They all lie, they all lie, they all lie. . .no brains.

Congress is bad news; for access, pay ’em “dues”—
dough gain.
If you wanna slum with every bum,
go pay ’m.
Gotta tithe, gotta tithe, tithe times five—
mo’ pay ’m.

There’s a reason “con” precedes the “-gressperson”—
fo’ shame!
Better fill a sack with a lot o’ jack
go pay ’m.
This ain’t right, they’re a blight, not too bright—
no brains.

They ain’t bright, but “the bite” they got right—
dough brains.
