For I simply can't be bothered when the names don't rhyme!

ENSEMBLE:
Oh, he simply can't be bothered when the names don't rhyme!
The Senators from other states will have to bide their time,
For he simply can't be bothered when the names don't rhyme!

THROTTLE:
The country thinks it's got depression.

Just wait until we get in session!

SENATORS:
Ha! Ha! Ha!

THROTTLE:
The people want a lot of action.

SENATORS:
Ho! Ho! Ho!

THROTTLE:
We're here to give them satisfaction!

SENATORS:
Ho! Ho! Ho!

THROTTLE:
Today is really full of laughter.

SENATORS:
Ha! Ha! Ha!

THROTTLE:
Compared to what will follow after!

SENATORS:
Ha! Ha! Ha!

THROTTLE:
There's action ev'ry minute when this happy group convenes:

ALL:
To get business into tangles
We can guarantee more angles
Then the town of Boston guarantees in beans!
If you think you've got depression,
Wait until we get in session,
And you'll find out what depression really means!
Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!

[REVISED 1952 VERSION, ROLL CALL CONCLUSION]

THROTTLE:
The people think they've got taxation.

SENATORS:
Ha! Ha! Ha!

THROTTLE:
Just wait for further legislation.

SENATORS:
Ha! Ha! Ha!

THROTTLE:
Today is really full of laughter.

SENATORS:
Ho! Ho! Ho!

THROTTLE:
Compared to what will follow after!

SENATORS:
Ho! Ho! Ho!

THROTTLE:
With fury though you may be seething.

SENATORS:
Ha! Ha! Ha!

THROTTLE:
Just wait until we tax your breathing.

SENATORS:
Ha! Ha! Ha!

THROTTLE:
On taxes,
None relaxes
When this happy group convenes!

ALL:
Be it payroll, be it income-
We are gathered here to sink 'em.
Till there's no one with a nickel in his jeans.
If you think you've got taxation,
Wait for further legislation,
And you'll find out what taxation really means!
Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
