Good news today, Tom Delay's quitting Congress.
I thought it worthy of writting him little ditty in thanks.
Put this in the BS section if that's where it shold be.

Oh Tom Delay is gone today, hooraw hooraw
He's turning in his post today, hooraw hooraw
He's getting out quick he's backing up fast
He's deathly afraid of them nailing his ass
His past has finally caught 'em at last
He'll have to go home & beg

His pals are turning tail on him hooraw, hooraw
His aides are pleading for short terms, hooraw, hooraw
The wild bunch now is going to jail
There short of friends to go their bail
Wait till you here the poor suckers wail
They'll have to go home & beg

We're happy for to see ya gone, hooraw, hooraw
We're happy for to send ya home, hooraw, hooraw
The hammer's felled its last head
His fall's enough to wake the dead
His divorce is complete it's the devil to wed
Where will ya go to beg

We're pleased now that you have to run, hooraw, horaw
We're tickled that dancing's done, hooraw, hooraw
You've lost your sway, ya lost your grip
You've lost power to help the rich
It's time we lost you, you son of a bitch
We'll leave ya now to beg

by Barry Finn tune "When Johnny Comes Marching Home"

Barry-

I was thinking more or less along the same lines, only making it more of a lament:

Oh Tom Delay is come an' gone,
Left us here to sing this song;
Tom Delay is come an' gone,
Left us here to sing this song;
Left us here to sing this song,
Left us here to sing this song,
Oh, left us here to sing this song,
Tom Delay is come an' gone!

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Tom Paxton beat you all to it quite a while ago with a little something simply called "Without DeLay".

Delightful and pungently creative.
