And you thought Lou Reed had captured real debauchery:

Mark Foley came from Miami, F.L.A.
“Pork-barreled” his way across the USA
E-mailed some pages on the way
Sought teenage¬†sex and then he was an “ex”
He says, Hey son
Take a walk on the wild side
Said, Hey Junior
Take a walk on the wild side

Abramoff came, from, the Reservation
In the backroom, backstabbing Choctaw Nation
But he never lost his head
Even when, busted by the feds
He says, Hey Congress
Take a walk on the perp side
Said, Hey Ney
Take a walk on the perp side
And the Black Caucus goes
doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo doo doo …

Tom DeLay never once gave it away
Everybody had to pay and pay
A hustle here and a hustle there
K Street is, the place where
They say, Hey Duke, take a walk on the perp side
I said, Hey Cunningham
Take a walk on the perp side

Harold Ford’s¬†opponent came and hit the streets
Lookin’ to trash¬†soul¬†man for Senate seat
Went to the, Playboy bash
Found a piece of bimbo trash
She said, Hey Harold, Take a walk on the wild side
She said, Hey Harold
Give me a call on the wild side
All right …¬†huh

Robocalls just speed-dialing away
Impersonating Howard Dean for a day
Then I guess they ran outta’¬†cash
Calling collect was just too rash
They said, Hey voter,
Walk away from the Dem side
I said, Hey Money,
Take a walk on the perp side
And the Black Caucus says
doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo doo doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo doo doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo doo doo ….
