 (MP3)
Original Performer:

Brenda Lee

Parody Song Title:

"Knockin' Around the Budget Bill"

Parody Written by:

William Tong

The Lyrics

Written in 1996, about the Republican cutting of the federal budget as a political football against President Clinton, culminating in an 18-day shutdown of the federal government
(instrumental intro)

Knockin' around the budget bill
Won't the Grand Old Party stop?
Missiles are built that we don't need
The environment gets the slop

Knockin' around the budget bill
Is a mean-spirited thing
Letting the social programs die
While the funds are narrowing

Gingrich hates the sentimental liberals, but he fears
He will lose through his own folly
He wrecked the fall in one big volley

Knockin' around the budget bill
Near the federal holiday
If they get furloughed, this time they may not
Get retroactive pay

(instrumental break)

Gingrich hates the sentimental liberals, but he fears
He will lose through his own folly
He wrecked the fall in one big volley

Knockin' around the budget bill
Near the federal holiday
If they get furloughed, this time they may not
Get re-tro-act-ive pa-a-ay!
