Lyrics
I WAS HAVING A BUSINESS LUNCH WITH A COLLEAGUE FROM THE OFFICE
AND WE WERE BRAINSTORMING WAYS THAT WE COULD MAXIMIZE PROFITS
HE SAID "IT'S JUST SO HARD WITH ALL THESE DARNED REGULATIONS
POLLUTION STANDARDS AND LAWS AND UNION WAGE ARBITRATIONS"
JUST THEN A WELL-DRESSED MAN AT A TABLE NEAR OURS
TAPPED MY SHOULDER AND SAID "YOU GOTTA REACH FOR THE STARS"

I GOT A FRIEND IN WASHINGTON
WHO CAN HELP YOU TO GET THINGS DONE
AND IT'S WORTH EVERY CENT YOU'VE PAID
ONCE YOU SEE HOW THE GAME IS PLAYED
YOU NEED THE GREEN KIND OF ENERGY
TO GREASE THE WHEELS OF DEMOCRACY
WE ALL BELIEVE IN THE GOLDEN RULE
THE ONES WITH THE GOLD GET TO MAKE THE RULES
HEY HEY HEY

HE SAID IT'S ALL WHO YOU KNOW
YOU GOTTA BE WELL-CONNECTED
YOU JUST FIND SOMEONE WHO NEED TO GET RE-ELECTED
IT COSTS ALOT TO CAMPAIGN
YOU MAKE A FAT CONTRIBUTION
LATER ON DOWN THE LINE YOU CAN EXPECT RESTITUTION

I GOT A FRIEND IN WASHINGTON
WHO CAN HELP YOU TO GET THINGS DONE
AND IT'S WORTH EVERY CENT YOU'VE PAID
ONCE YOU SEE HOW THE GAME IS PLAYED
YOU NEED THE GREEN KIND OF ENERGY
TO GREASE THE WHEELS OF DEMOCRACY
WE ALL BELIEVE IN THE GOLDEN RULE
THE ONES WITH THE GOLD GET TO MAKE THE RULES
HEY HEY HEY
HEY HEY HEY

AND IN THE HOLLOW ECHO OF THE AMERICAN DREAM
IF YOU LISTEN CLOSELY YOU CAN HEAR THAT EAGLE SCREAM

MY THANKS TO SENATOR QUINN AND ALL MY HOMIES IN CONGRESS
WE'VE FORMED AN EXCELLENT TEAM AND WE'VE MADE SOME REAL PROGRESS
WE CUT OUR TAXES BY HALF
WE GOT SOME SWELL DEFENSE CONTRACTS
WE SPONSORED QUITE A FEW BILLS THAT GOT PUT ON THE FAST TRACK
SO GOD BLESS US EVERYONE
WE CAN HOLD OUR HEADS HIGH
WE'VE GOT THE BEST LEADERSHIP
THAT SPECIAL INTERESTS CAN BUY

I GOT A FRIEND IN WASHINGTON
WHO CAN HELP YOU TO GET THINGS DONE
AND IT'S WORTH EVERY CENT YOU'VE PAID
ONCE YOU SEE HOW THE GAME IS PLAYED
YOU NEED THE GREEN KIND OF ENERGY
TO GREASE THE WHEELS OF DEMOCRACY
WE ALL BELIEVE IN THE GOLDEN RULE
THE ONES WITH THE GOLD GET TO MAKE THE RULES
HEY HEY HEY
