( Ethics bill song lyrics )
APATHETIC ABOUT YOUR ETHICS
Copyright 2007 - MickTerry.com

Congratulations on the passing of your recent bill.
So I guess that you have now fulfilled your old campaign pledge.
Congratulations. I'm so glad that you've cleaned up your act
just to get the critics off your back with what they've alleged.
Those lobbyists out in the lobby aren't any friends of yours.
After all, didn't you just throw a few restrictions in their way?

    Do you think we're APATHETIC ABOUT YOUR ETHICS?
    Do you think we'll just forget it or just don't care?
    Not the least apologetic, you're not even empathetic.
    You just think you'll get away with almost anything you dare.

Congratulations. Do you think you look so squeaky clean?
The investigators know your scene and they won't let go.
Congratulations. Just because you shifted all the blame,
do you think you've lifted all the shame that is yours to know?
Those lobbyists out in the lobby aren't any friends of yours.
After all, didn't you just throw a few restrictions in their way?

    CHORUS

        Some of us can't swallow pork on a silver platter,
        and a badly tarnished one at that.
        Is your pattern of life to extort
        as the fat cats get even fatter?
        No one gives a damn about your dam project.
        No one wants your bridge to nowhere.

    CHORUS

8-6-07:
Ethics bill before Congress again.

1-19-07:
After numerous scandals (including lobbyist Jack Abramoff)
& prolonged pressure to clean up their deplorable ethics,
Congress passed a bill throwing the onus of unethical lobbying
practices on the lobbyists, accepting very little culpability themselves
