Watergate

It was a little after midnight
In May of 72
when they snuck into the Watergate and knew just what to do
They taped the door behind them, and broke into the room
where democrats had hoped on high to plan Dick Nixon's doom

Watergate
Big mistake
Watergate
Sealed his fate

They had started taking pictures when the plain clothes cops arrived
They dove under the desks, they hoped that they could hide
but fate had thrown against them and they were marched straight into court
Their secrets were laid bare as Woodward would report

Watergate
Big mistake
Watergate
Sealed his fate

And back down at the white house
the men just pissed and moaned
it's just a third rate burglary
just leave this shit alone
But the eggs had all been broken
as the tapes would soon attest
and all the presidents's men
could not cover up this mess

Watergate
Big mistake
Watergate
Sealed his fate

Today we still remember every scandal every state
We add the shameful suffix make it some blanking gate
Irangate, weinergate, Bridgegate, Billygate
Climategate, nipplegate, all descend from Nixon's fate

Watergate
Big mistake
Watergate
Sealed his fate
