Lyrics I'm Just a Bill

Woof you sure gotta climb a lot of steps
To get to this Capitol building here in Washington
Well I wonder who that sad little scrap of paper is
I'm just a bill yes I'm only a bill
And I'm sitting here on Capitol Hill
Well it's a long long journey to the Capital City
It's a long long wait while I'm sitting in committee
But I know I'll be a law someday
At least I hope and pray that I will
But today I am still just a bill
Gee Bill you certainly have a lot of patience and courage
Well I got this far when I started
I wasn't even a bill
I was just an idea
Some folks back home decided they wanted a law
Passed so they called their local congressman and he said
You're right there oughta be a law
Then he sat down and wrote me out
And introduced me to congress and I became a bill
And I'll remain a bill until they decide to make me a law
I'm just a bill yes I'm only a bill
And I got as far as Capitol Hill well now I'm
Stuck in committee and I'll sit here and wait
While a few key congressmen discuss and debate
Whether they should let me be a law
How I hope and pray that they will
But today I am still just a bill
Listen to those congressmen arguing
Is all that discussion and debate about you
Yeah I'm one of the lucky ones
Most bills never even get this far
I hope they decide to report on me
Favourably otherwise I may die
Die yeah die in committee
Ooh but it looks like
I'm gonna live
Now I go to the House of representatives
If they vote yes what happens
And they vote on me then I go to the Senate
The whole thing starts all over again
Oh no
Oh yes I'm just a bill yes I'm only a bill
And if they vote for me on Capitol Hill
Well then I'm off to the White
House where I'll wait in a line
With a lot of other bills for the president to sign
And if he signs me then I'll be a law
How I hope and pray that he will
But today I am still just a bill
You mean even if the whole congress says
You should be a law the president can still say no
Yes that's called a veto
If the president vetoes me I have to go back to congress
And they vote on me again and by that time you're so old
By that time it's very unlikely that you'll become a law
It's not easy to become a law is it
No but how I hope and pray that I will
But today I am still just a bill he signed you Bill
Now you're a law oh yes
