LYRICS for George Santos is Leaving the Town
David Cohen

He is now gone
And that is no lie
A sorry sack sot
Who must say goodbye
George Santos is leavin’ the town

There was quite a list
And he paid the price
They soon found out
he’s corrupt, not nice
Santos’ flaws have taken him down

Congress watched while he stood lying
Like a well-dressed rattlesnake
They knew that he’d been bad not good
So, kicked him out for goodness sake

Oooh…The rules he skewed
The voters he screwed
Fancy new shoes and plenty of booze
George Santos is leavin’ the town

His crimes in plain sight
A total disgrace
Hotels, spas, a Botox new face
Santos’ flaws have taken him down

Now people on Long Island
Are happy as can be
They’re gonna have an honest chance
‘Specially those in District Three

Sooo…He didn’t watch out
Continues to lie
He’ll do a long stretch but still he’ll deny
George Santos is leavin’ the town
