    Enron Hearings

    (With apologies to Stephen Foster)

    The Enron hearings stretch ahead,
    Doo-dah, doo-dah,
    Until the final soundbite's said.
    Oh, doo-dah day.

    Pols will posture night,
    Pols will posture day.
    They'll show the voters just how tough they are,
    Browbeating some CPA.

    They'll talk of all the laws they'll make,
    Doo-dah, doo-dah.
    And meanwhile they're still on the take.
    Oh, doo-dah day.

    Pols will posture day,
    Pols will posture night.
    The guy who's shmeered them for a dozen years
    Now is the guy they'd indict.

    Enron on the Hill
