The Lyrics

If they're smart, the staff at the White House will take a thorough inventory before the trumps check out next month.
Every day that's left
We're watching for theft
Every fork you touch, every spoon you clutch
We'll be watching you.
Every single plate
And every box and crate
Each silver tray's troy weight, every gift of state
We'll be watching you.

We came to see
You’re not trustworthy
Now the White House counts
Their good champagne amounts;
You'll have to account
For every fluid ounce
You'll have to now renounce your five-finger discounts
'Cause we're watching you.

'Til you're gone we'll guard every pot and vase
Both day and night we'll keep them safe from your embrace
All bric-a-brac that could never be replaced
Else we would fear they'd be lost without a trace
The 'People's House' ain't yours for souvenirs.

You can't accrue
What don't belong to you.
Can't misappropriate
Andrew Jackson's portrait,
Ain't part of your estate
So if it should get 'misplaced'
It will become your fate to live with prison gates
'Cause we're watching you.
It's a big headache, to look for stuff you'd take
We are watching you

We are watching you
Every furtive glance, those figurines from France
Each painting of Rembrandt's (We'll be watchin' you)
Every plush bathrobe, those little fragrant soaps
That White House snow globe (We'll be watchin' you)
Every furtive glance, those figurines from France
Each painting of Rembrandt's (We'll be watchin' you)
Every plush bathrobe, those little fragrant soaps
That White House snow globe (We'll be watchin' you)
Every furtive glance, those figurines from France
Each painting of Rembrandt's (We'll be watchin' you)
Every plush bathrobe, those little fragrant soaps
That White House snow globe (We'll be watchin' you)
