lyrics

FUNKY CONGRESSMAN (COACH CLASS)

I don't travel Coach Class
First Class always is the goal
I don't travel Coach Class
First Class always is the goal
Since I came to Congress
That is just the way I roll

Ribeye steak and whiskey
Put it on the taxpayer's dime
Ribeye steak and whiskey
Put it on the taxpayer's dime
With health care and a pay raise
Congress pays better than crime

Funky odor
from the last dude to sit here
Overhead compartment
Your crap ain't gonna fit here
Airport sushi
I don't think I wanna risk it
Can I offer you a pillow?
It's the size of a Triscuit.

At your job they turn the lights off
At our gym, the light stays on
At your job they turn the lights off
At our gym, the light stays on
We consider it essential
We're the kings and you're the pawns

Funky odor
from the last dude to sit here
Overhead compartment
Your crap ain't gonna fit here
Airport sushi
I don't think I wanna risk it
Can I offer you a pillow?
It's the size of a Triscuit.

HARLEM HAYRIDE hangs all these beauties on the frame of the Graverobbers' solid rock. ... more
